Another great feature that the built-in water heating system includes is led lights to indicate when the hot water is ready and when you need to add more water to the system.

I love how easy it is to use this coffee maker. I can program it to do anything! My husband does not drink coffee but he does love his green tea in the morning. I am a huge coffee drinker however. I can accommodate all of this with this coffee maker!

I really do not have any complaints about his machine except for the fact that you can only program it 24-hours before you need it to brew.

The Final Verdict:

I would recommend this coffee maker. I love it and honestly, it really has no problems. The price is great for the features it comes with.


  1. We love the Cuisinart chw-12 and this has been a good investments for my family. Brews perfect coffee, provides hot water for tea and a lot more.

    The only con I have about the CHW-12 is the noise- it seems to be a lot loader than our old Mr. Coffee. Have no idea why.

    All in all, great coffee maker.
