Cuisinart DCC-2650 Coffee Maker (click to enlarge)

It’s not always easy to find coffee makers that brew large pots of coffee. Most go up to 10 cups, but if you’re entertaining a larger crowd – or just really love your coffee – 10 might not suffice. The Cuisinart DCC-2650 Brew Central can brew up to 12 cups of coffee lightning fast. With a sleek design and plenty of great convenient features, the DCC-2650 makes a great addition to any kitchen.

Sturdy and Durable

The DCC-2650 is well-engineered with a sturdy housing and metallic accents. This model does come with a glass carafe, which can be fragile, but the coffee maker itself is made from highly durable materials.

Convenient Features and Sleek Design

The one thing I love about Cuisinart coffee makers is that they always have convenient features. The DCC-2650 is no different.

It can brew up to 12 cups at a time, and if you don’t want to brew an entire pot, you have the option of making just 1-4 cups. The water reservoir is easy to clean and fill. The indicator window on the side of the pot lets you know exactly how much water you need.

If you want to wake up to freshly brewed coffee, there’s a programmable feature and automatic shut-off. You can choose between 0 and 4 hours for the shut-off feature. Once the coffee is done brewing, it will beep five times to let you know.

There’s a brew pause feature, too, that lets you pour a cup mid-brew. And you have the option of choosing between regular or bold flavors.

The heating plate will keep your coffee warm until the automatic shut-off kicks in. And you can adjust the temperature of the heating plate, so you can keep your coffee exactly the right temperature.

Other great features are also included like a permanent gold filter and a charcoal water filter for a great-tasting, convenient pot of coffee.

Clean-Up is a Breeze

Coffee makers are either really easy to clean or a complete nightmare. Luckily, the DCC-2650 falls into the first category. It even comes with a self-cleaning feature that tells you when it’s time to clean your coffee maker.

Enjoy Years of Use

Under normal use, the DCC-2650 should provide you with years of use. Of course, there are exceptions, but Cuisinart includes a 3-year warranty for machines that malfunction prematurely.

Very Affordable

The DCC-2650 comes with a lot of great features, and you’d expect to pay well over $100 for a machine like this. But you can find the DCC-2650 in retail shops for just around $100. That’s a steal – especially considering that this machine brews a large pot of coffee.


  • Can brew up to 12 cups of coffee, with the option of brewing 1-4 cups.
  • Brew pause feature lets you pour a cup mid-brew.
  • Permanent filter and water filter ensure a pure coffee taste and easy clean-up.
  • Self-cleaning feature lets you know when it’s time to clean the pot.
  • Adjustable heating plate temperature.
  • Automatic shut-off.


  • The carafe lid is inconvenient.

The only drawback with this coffee maker is that the carafe’s lid doesn’t rotate. You have to actually unclip it to fill it up. This isn’t a deal breaker by any means, but may be a minor inconvenience for some people.

The Cuisinart DCC-2650 is a great programmable coffee maker with plenty of convenient, smart features. It brews a large, 12-cup pot of coffee in record time, and the coffee tastes great.
