The Cuisinart DCC-3200 Coffee Machine will brew you a light or bold cup of coffee, self-clean, and fit nicely into your kitchen decor without overpowering it. It\u2019s too bad it\u2019s not not the fastest coffee machine around, but brewing just one cup shouldn\u2019t be too much of a hassle. Check out our best coffee maker list for more machines!\r\n\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Cuisinart DCC-3200 PerfecTemp\r\nCuisinart Coffee Makers will give you a great cup of coffee without the fuss of having to worry about whether the coffee will be too strong, whether it will brew too many cups, or whether the coffee will come out scorched if you try for a hotter cup. You don\u2019t have to worry about these things because they are all programmable.\r\n\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe Cuisinart Coffee Maker allows you to select regular or bold flavor coffee via its brew strength control feature which is nifty if you want a bold, good cup in the morning and something lighter in the afternoon or evening. The Brew Pause Feature even allows users to enjoy great coffee before the brewing process has finished. Overall brew time on the 14 cup programmable coffeemaker takes between 5-10 minutes depending on the quantity of coffee grounds and brew amount. This is a little on the slow side, so try the Technivorm Moccamaster KBG 741 for a faster brew.\r\nDesign\r\nThe Cuisinart DCC-3200 Programmable Coffee Maker features a gold tone coffee filter and a charcoal water filter to ensure the cleanest cup of hot coffee possible. The main body consists of sleek and decorative stainless steel and a cup glass carafe which fits snugly into the base of the unit. Overall, the machine isn\u2019t the loudest in the world, but it should still be able to fill out your kitchen decor. But if you do want something more outlandish, try the OXO Barista Brain 9 Cup Coffee Maker.\r\nValue\r\nThe Cuisinart DCC-3200 Drip Coffee Maker has a clean button which means all you have to do is fill the water reservoir with your favourite mild cleaning solution and hit the button. The cup button also allows you to brew a single or few cups if you don\u2019t require the machines 14-cup capacity. The temperature control allows you to achieve hotter coffee without that horrible scorched taste of less-quality machines. The PerfecTemp retails on Amazon for $100.00 which puts it in the affordable range like the Bodum Bistro Coffee Maker.\r\nCuisinart DCC-3200 PerfecTemp Wrap Up\r\nCuisinart Drip Coffee Makers make excellent coffee and Cuisinart has continued this legacy in their fully programmable DCC-3200 model. There are a few things that hold it back, the slowness and the lack of energy-star certification being the main ones, but for the price you can\u2019t really argue about what you\u2019re getting.
