Default Cuisinart 2000 vs Mr. Coffee

Cuisinart DCC-2000

Price 100.00


Good

Worked well until warranty expired (3 years)

Easy to use. Fill and forget until coffee is ready.

Politely beeps when brew complete

Included gold filter is sufficient; no paper filters needed

Coffee flavor is acceptable


Bad

Re-initialized variable causes 'auto shutoff' to fail after 3 years, relies
on safety system to shut off; requires reboot daily

Water leaks on to counter

'Carafe - less' design slow; dangerous for filling thermos bottle

Activated charcoal filter is extremely expensive at US ~5.00 each



Mr Coffee CJX21CP

Price 30.00


Good

Inexpensive

Carafe fills cup or thermos quickly and safely

Politely beeps when brew complete

Easy to maintain. Inexpensive paper filters make cleanup a breeze

Coffee flavor is acceptable


Bad

Design underdeveloped; will cause lots of hot coffee to leak on to
counter if carafe is not inserted at brew time. Illegible clock
should be replaced by a single (blinking amber) 'No Carafe' LED

Probably has a 'cycle counter' that causes post warranty failure
like the Cuisinart

Basket valve can prevent carafe from fully seating on heater plate

Reservoir gauge difficult to see, for right-handed people

Activated charcoal filter is expensive at US ~2.00 each
