The coffee machine comes with a charcoal filter which effectively removes odors and chlorine which are usually associated with tap water. This coffeemaker also features a thermal carafe made of brushed stainless steel which is also insulated by a double wall. The Cuisinart DGB-600BC Grind and Brew Thermal Coffee Maker 10-Cup Automatic’s carafe can keep over 10 cups of 5 oz each of brewed coffee. You can also pour coffee into a cup while still brewing coffee by just pressing its brew-pause function.

If you just want to prepare less than 5 cups of coffee, just preset it at 1-4 cups. This setting vastly improves its heat and extraction function. The Cuisinart DGB-600BC Grind and Brew Thermal Coffee Maker 10-Cup Automatic is also easy to clean. Just remove its grinder when you want to clean it. This coffee machine just weighs 10 pounds and measures 15 x 8 x 7.5 inches. The Cuisinart DGB-600BC Grind and Brew Thermal Coffee Maker 10-Cup Automatic also features a timer which you can preset to your preferred time. This conveniently enables you to have a cup of coffee anytime you want.

Problems encountered with Cuisinart DGB-600BC Grind and Brew Thermal Coffee Maker 10-Cup Automatic

The Cuisinart DGB-600BC Grind and Brew Thermal Coffee Maker has several complaints from its users. The charcoal water filter ensures that your coffee is made with pure, sweet-tasting water, which is another big plus but among complaints received is the need to change its charcoal filter regularly to ensure that chlorine and odors coming from tap water are properly removed. You also have difficulty in clearly seeing the water level indication in its reservoir.

Another problem is the noise of the grinder – though as coffee grinders go, it’s really not that noisy. It can, however, be a rude awakening in a silent house until you get used to it.

Cuisinart’s claim that it is easy to clean is not accurate since you have to clean 7 parts of the coffee machine after each brew. This coffeemaker tends to overflow and flood your kitchen counter with coffee or water since its basket door opens often. Do not expect to have piping hot coffee at all times. If you want a cup of piping hot coffee, warm its carafe first before you brew your coffee. When pouring from the carafe, you need to pour at a much steeper angle for faster flow; otherwise, it can be really slow filling a cup with coffee. The coffee quality is also very weak.
