Cuisinart DCC-3200 Review
It is rare for coffee maker manufacturers to offer an affordable unit that comes with commercial-grade features. For all of us, those units are truly special and definitely should be considered. The Cuisinart DCC-3200 review we have here should prove why this unit is special in the lack of a better word.
Features of Cuisinart DCC-3200
The tested model comes in a stainless steel version, which makes it a very appealing choice. It looks elegant and it is very resistant and durable. Although we liked this advantage a lot, it is the only ones you can actually get. This model isn’t available in different colors, which make be an issue for some of you.
Nevertheless, the stainless steel construction makes it durable and allows for the coffee maker to blend-in in most kitchens and home decors. It even looks more expensive than it actually is.
Now we have a feature which is just mandatory for all of you who like drinking coffee. The brew control allows for you to choose between regular and bold coffee strength. All you have to do is to adjust the brew control and enjoy a cup of coffee which will be just perfect or better said, just right.
The Cuisinart DCC-3200 must include the fact this unit offers advanced programmability. It is a 24 hours feature and it is usually reserved for high-end models. Now, we can have it in this, affordable and user-friendly coffee maker. For those who don’t know, this allows for users to make the coffee maker ready for the first use precisely when they want.
There is no need to clean this coffee maker manually. As a matter of fact, all you have to do is to activate the self-cleaning feature and the unit will remove all the deposits all by itself. There is no need in telling you that this makes the unit more appealing to beginners and for those who don’t like cleaning their coffee makers. Once again, we can see that this system was reserved for more expensive models.
1-4 cup possibility
You can adjust the coffee maker to prepare your 1 or 4 cups of coffee. The adjustment is possible via the control panel and very simple. Users who need a single cup of coffee will adjust the coffee maker within seconds and get the one cup which is just perfect for that, particular moment.
As you already know, the automatic shutdown feature makes coffee makers more appealing, energy-saving and more durable. In this case scenario, we are looking at the programmable auto-shutdown feature. A user will be able to adjust the feature between 0 and 4 hours. It simply means that a unit will turn off automatically after 4 hours, if not used during that time frame.
We always like seeing this feature of coffee makers, but we prefer models that have the ability to adjust the idle period. They are the most advanced and the best for average users.
Warm temperature control
Now, users can adjust the warm temperature of the coffee. It is another, advanced feature that makes a huge difference and which helps you get a cup of coffee you really like and want. The difference is noticed immediately and it is optimized for advanced users, who know that temperature makes a massive difference and they want to use that.
Dual filter system
There are two filters on this coffee maker. The first one is for the coffee and it is a gold plated version. The second one is a well-known charcoal filter and it is used for water filtration. Combined, these two filters make the coffee maker safer to use and also more sophisticated.
