Didn't last long

Don t bother with this coffee maker

 

If by chance, you break the glass carafe....forget it; the company will sell you a new one at almost the same price as the whole machine...and the people in their customer service could care less about it....terrible customer service.  By a cheaper...

No pros; other than the fact you can fill under the counter

Customer service=no people skills, break the carafe and your stock with an overpriced

DeLonghi DCF212T: cheap price poor quality

 

The machine worked great for first month, though it was definitely slower to brew than my previous machine.  Out of the box it took more than 10 minutes for an 8-cup batch.  Still, I liked the front access.  At some point, less than 3 months out of the...

Simple to use.  Fits well under cabinet.  Lowest price machine around

Doesn't last. Ours broke within 3 months

DeLonghi DCF212T - 12-Cup Coffee Maker

 

We have used this coffee maker every day for almost a year now.  Works as well as today's $50 appliances do.  The coffee is better using the "Aroma" setting but it does take more time to brew a pot, so we only use this feature on the days off.  The...

The Front Fill feature . . FANTASTIC

The simple timer could have had a few more features

not very good

 

I bought this at Crate and Barrel in early 2009. The first one was so loud, I took it back and exchanged it. It worked great for a while, now it leaks a major puddle every time we brew a pot. The lever/paddle thing in the back leaks/drips a lot of...

GREAT PRICE AND GREAT COFFEE!

 

When I bought this machine I was not that confident about the quality of the coffee due to its unique low price... it was a surprise!! Easy to use, cheap, great coffee... I'm getting addicted to my coffee every day more and more!

DeLonghi will not support their own products

 

Earlier this week my coffee maker stopped brewing half-way through a 8 cup pot. In addition, the warming plate would not heat up. I called customer service and was told that my coffee maker was out of warranty and that broken warming plates were not...

Great cup of coffee

Poor product support

Burned Coffee

 

I bought this at Crate & Barrel in Jan. 09. Someone who worked at the store said he had the same one and loved it. I loved that you didn't have to pull it out from under the counter to fill it with water and coffee. It worked great until a ...

Great filling feature - front load

Not worth $50 price tag
