People are impressed by this coffee maker
I bought this coffeemaker for my office t work and people are always commenting on it. It is fun to put your cup under and press the lever to fill it. The unit is well made, no carafe but a plastic water reservoir to fill. it is a little high for the water bubbler, but I was able to fit it by sliding out the drain. The coffee filter holder and the coffee reservoir come out easily for cleaning. The coffee is good and hot enough. the unit is a bit high and the top opens to put the coffee in. I can see it being a bit tight under a cabinet. The "fuel" guage is interesting to tell you how much coffee there is. It is programmable, has removable water filter, hs 1-4 cup setting and easy to set clock.

Excellent product
Makes great coffee. Programmable features are easy to use. Cleanup is easy. Even has feature for fewer cups. Looks great on the counter.

My friend loves it.
Brought this as a present for a friend in law school who wanted to have hot coffee available when she wanted it while studying at home. With this pot, she can program it to have the coffee ready when she wants it and then be able to refill her cup later and the coffee still be hot.

Dispenser area too small
The coffee maker works as promised. The only drawback is my travel coffee mug does not fit in dispenser. I need to pour coffee in one cup and pour it into my travel mug. I have 7 different travel mugs but not one fits in dispenser area.

Love it!
This coffee maker is great! It is very well made (shipped and packaged very well, too) and works just fine. I love the interior coffee reservoir - great idea and it really keeps the coffee hot for a long time. It's fun to put your mug under the dispenser, press the bar, and fill up your cup! I would highly recommend this coffee maker.
December 26, 2015
I love this!!!!!
I think I got this the first time 10 to 12 years ago, my reasons for like this coffee pot are, first beauty, easy to clean but last and best of all no coffee pot to pick up and pour or clean you just put your cup on the pretty shinny platform and press on the black key above it and out the hot coffee pours, no heavy pot to lift or spill drops all over, quick, easy and clean..

I disposed of my old one because after dispensing a cup of coffee it continued to drip and filled the drip tray and overflowed on the cabinet. My new one just did the same thing yesterday and I have had it for less than three months. What could be the problem?

My husband and I do not like coffe makers with glass pots. This is our third coffeemaker of this type! We will be using this in our motorhome with no worries about breaking the glass pot!
Patricia W on Nov 7, 2016
We have the previous version of this same style Cuisinart coffee maker and we love it! This one looks like a very improved version, so we are really looking forward to using it as well. The coffee never has that "burned" taste that coffeemakers with carafes have. Coffee always stays fresh tasting and hot!!

does it take regular coffee grounds in the basket filter for all 12 cups at one time?

won't they get old sitting in there re-brewing over them each time you want a new cup of coffee? also, do you hold the button the whole time you brew the cup or is it a setting for the cup size
A shopper on Sep 10, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This machine brews all of the coffee at once and simply holds the brewed coffee in a coffee reservoir until it is dispensed. You do have to hold down the lever the whole time you are dispensing the coffee into your cup.
when i get a cup of coffee, is it a set amount or can i get a half cup
A shopper on Dec 2, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The dispenser is not pre-programed so you can get as much or as little coffee as you would like each time.
how long does it take to brew 12 cups of coffe?

and then how long does it take to dispense each cup? is the coffee supposed to stay fresh longer than a regular coffee maker?
A shopper on Sep 11, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This machine brews a 12 cup pot of coffee in about 7 minutes. Each cup takes about 7 seconds to dispense. The coffee should stay fresh and hot up to 4 hours, as the coffee reservoir is double-walled and insulated and has a burner at the bottom
We have a similar dispensing unit made by Hamilton beach and the dispenser clogs with coffee grounds. Is the dispenser easy to clean and has anyone had issues with clogging?
A shopper on Mar 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have had two Cuisinart Coffee on Demand Coffeemakers and had no problems with clogging. My first on was about ten years old when it just expired, so i replaced it with another and am well pleased with it. I usually run the filter basked and coffee tank through the top rack of the dishwasher once a week or so.
Does it keep the remaining coffee warm in the reservoir? We will likely use the 1-4 cup coffee option most, but like to drink it over a couple hours

And is this unit available in stores. My closest store is in the city center location in Houston.
A shopper on May 30, 2013
BEST ANSWER: You can set how long it keeps the coffee warm up to 4 hours. But if it turns off you can turn the heater back on.
self cleaning? does that mean you never need to clean it with white vinegar?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Nope...there is a lite that comes on to tell you it's time to do the vinegar thing. I wipe out the coffee container every so often with a paper towel and also wipe clean the metal heat conducting plate.
Do you have to make a full pot or can you just make 2 cups?
m s on Feb 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, you don't have to make a full pot. The water level marker starts at 3 Cups. I'm assuming, with a little trial and error, you could figure out the amount for two cups. As a side note, my husband and I love this coffee maker.
What if you don't finish the whole pot, how do you get the old coffee out of the reservoir?
Lisa C on Feb 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Turn off unit wait to cool then you can open unit up on top where you put coffee in and pull out the whole basket remove coffee filter and you should be able too see the container of coffee drain and clean and put back together
The description says that the "Machine self-cleans at the push of a button." What does that mean? What part of the machine cleans itself?
A shopper on Jan 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It means the unit tells you when the base unit needs decalcification (calcium build up, depending on the hardness of your water.) You put water and white vinegar in the unit, press the clean button and turn it on. This cleans the unit.
Is The bottom part (where the cup sits) removable to allow for a taller cup?
A shopper on Apr 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the drip tray is removable
Do you use ground coffee? Or beans? Or k cups?
A shopper on Feb 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The design is for ground beans only - we grind beans daily for our morning coffee.
How do you clean this machine?
A shopper on Jun 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I want to add that it makes the best tasting coffee I have ever had from a drip machine and stays really hot for a long time. It never tastes stale or burnt.
Are the containers and filters that hold the water, grinds and coffee BPA free?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Cuisinart says they are BPA free.
How tall of a cup can you fit with the drip tray removed?
A shopper on Aug 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Without the drip tray, you can fit a 6 1/2" cup.
Does the coffee maker still dispense coffee after it shuts off?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can still dispense coffee after it shuts off, as you just push the lever down & the coffee is then released.
We have owned two of these and likely will not buy a third. The reason is that with both of the Cuisinart's over time the lever to release the coffee gets loose and coffee drips out when not pressing the lever. Has this been fixed?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We have owned 2 since July 2011...lever was still working on first was given a resting place after 4 years because it stopped brewing coffee... new one is fine... Do find if you don't regularly dump out the water collected in the bottom slide out will overflow and be on the counter
How hot does the coffee get at the initial brewing and does it stay that hot throughout the time in the reservoir? I like really HOT coffee and want to be sure this machine can brew a really hot cup.
terri d on Feb 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The coffee is hot when it's done brewing which is pretty quick. It will keep the coffee hot for up to four hours without getting bitter. If you take a cup before it has finished the brew cycle it is strong. I find that now I've used it a while coffee is brewing hotter now and tastes better. I always put ground cinnamon in my grounds to keep coffee fresh tasting.
How long will the coffee stay hot in the reservoir and what temperature does it keep the coffee? I prefer my coffee hot.
A shopper on Dec 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Heating element in upper chamber is timed to go off 2 hours after the coffee is brewed. Coffee that is drawn just after brewing is nice and hot...later it's hot..not warm...but not piping hot...hotter than other coffee makers... The last cup does not seem to have that stale "sitting too long in the coffee urn on the burner taste". This is our second coffee maker of this model...we use it daily...the first lasted 4 years before the element died
What does 1-4 mean? The manual to my machine was lost and the coffee machine was purchased at a second hand store.
Jemima B on May 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 1 to 4 cups of can download owners manuals for almost anything..go to manufacturer's website and support link or google for it.
I use coffee beans, does this unit able to grind them?
A shopper on Mar 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No you will have to grind in a coffee grinder ,but totally worth it best coffee machine ever
Can it dispense hot water only - like for tea?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The hot water passes through a gold coffee filter after being I would imagine if you did not add coffee grinds to the filter, it would pass the hot water through the filter to be dispensed and you could use for tea.
I need a manual for this coffee machine, where I get one?
Jemima B on May 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You may be able to email cuisinart. , and give them the model #. Good luck
how much water and white vinegar do you use to clean it? I have misplaced manual.
A shopper on Apr 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Fill the water reservoir to capacity with a mixture of 1/3 white vinegar and 2/3 water Use clean mode
The on demand coffee dispenser keeps dripping after you serve a cup of coffee. How do you best clean this to stop this from happening?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Most likely you just put too much water into the reservoir.
how do I fix my coffee gauge?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The only time I had a problem with the gauge was when I had the machine apart for cleaning. After I put everything back in, the gauge worked. Good luck.
The indicator arrow that tells you how much is in the pot is at full even when it is empty, why?
A shopper on Dec 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I do not know because mine goes down to half when the pot in nearly empty. It makes great coffee, however.
Cuisinart needs to work on it.
What are the steps in programming my DCC-3000 Cuisinart?
A shopper on Dec 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: turn dial to prof, the auto on light will flash. Follow set time instructions to program brew start time. Turn function dial to auto on and press the on/off button. The green auto on light signals advanced brew start function is on. At the programmed time the blue in/off indicator light will come on to indicate brew cycle is starting.
