Cuisinart DTC-975BKN Coffee Maker (click to enlarge)

The Cuisinart DTC-975BKN was a coffee maker that was on my “must-try” list for quite some time. I had heard nothing but great things about this model, and after testing it out myself, I’m sold. It features convenient programmability and a thermal carafe that keeps coffee hot for hours. Let’s take a closer look at this model to see what else the DTC-975BKN has to offer.

A Solid Coffee Maker

Let’s start with the overall construction of this coffee maker. The exterior is made of tough, durable black plastic with steel accents. The carafe is double-walled insulated stainless steel. This is a solid coffee maker that’s well-designed and well-engineered.

Convenient Features for Busy Coffee Lovers

What’s the one feature that everyone looks for in a coffee maker? Programmability. And the DTC-975BKN doesn’t skimp out here. With 24-hour programmability, you can automatically brew coffee whenever you want.

The DTC-975BKN brews up to 12 (5 ounce) cups of coffee at a time. This model doesn’t come with a typical glass carafe. It comes with a stainless steel, double-walled insulated carafe that will keep your coffee hot for hours. And the carafe has a patented pour-through, brew-through lid that keeps air out and your coffee fresh.

Cuisinart even makes it easy and convenient to fill up your coffee maker. The reservoir cover lifts up, so you can fill it with water. Just close the cover once it’s full, and you’re good to go.  The water window also has magnified markings that let you know how much water is needed to make the corresponding cups of coffee.

And if you’re dying for a cup of coffee, you can pause the brewing cycle and pour yourself a cup. The DTC-975BKN has just about every feature you could want in a drip coffee maker.

Easy to Clean and Maintain

The great thing about Cuisinart’s DTC-975BKN brewer is that’s relatively simple in design – and that makes it so easy to clean. The black plastic housing and steel accents wipe clean with a towel or sponge. The carafe, made from stainless steel, is also easy to clean.

And the DTC-975BKN is virtually maintenance- free as it doesn’t come with any complicated mechanical features. Just treat this coffee maker as you would any other model.

Highly Durable for Years of Use

Made from durable, rugged materials, the DTC-975BKN is built to last. Under normal use, this machine will last for years. And Cuisinart offers a three-year warranty, so your purchase is protected.

A Price That’s Hard to Beat

You can find the DTC-975BKN in the retail shops for around $100. You get a fantastic coffee maker with programmability for an unbeatable price.
