Cuisinart CHW-12

Something I find a bit frustrating with coffee making machines is all they make is coffee.  Ok, yeah, you can run water through and have a pitcher of hot water, but if there's a coffee drinker in the house - that's not going to go over well when they're having a caffeine fit and you're sitting there happily enjoying your tea and a bowl of instant maple and brown sugar oatmeal.

Anyway, what brought this subject up was last nite I was browsing through the latest issue of ShopSmart magazine and saw one gem of a coffeemaker!  It's called the Cuisinart CHW-12 and acts as both a fully programmable coffeemaker AND a hot-water dispenser!  

The  Cuisinart CHW-12 is loaded with awesome features:

  • stainless steel
  • 24 hr programmable
  • self clean function
  • auto shutoff
  • 1-4 cup settings
  • 12 cup carafe
  • carafe has a drip-free pour spout
  • carafe temp control heater plate can be set at high, medium or low settings - great for keeping your coffee at just the temp you like it
  • easy to read program panel has a blue back-lite and digital clock
  • no need to wait till the brewing cycle has finished. It has a special pause feature so you can have that first cup before you crack under the pressure of waiting
  • removable drip tray allows plenty of room to use travel mugs
  • water system works independently of coffeemaker
  • safety lock on the bottom of water system, so no need to worry about small children accidentally dispensing the hot water
  • tells you when water is ready, when to add more
  • can put tea cup in the bottom & hold lever till you get amount of water you prefer
  • Includes a charcoal water filter & Gold Tone Filter that removes impurities!
  • 3 year warranty
  • Dimensions: 10.8 x 12.4 x 16.5 and weighs 9.5 lbs
That's quite a list, but then again, this is quite a coffee making machine!  If you take a look over at amazon, you'll see 104 consumers reviewed the Cuisinart CHW-12 and it scored a 4.5 stars!  That's impressive!  Everyone agrees that it makes the best coffee they've ever tasted.  

There are a few folks who have had a few problems with the hot water side, but that's because they ignored the instructions.  : )  So, tossing that out the window, the Cuisinart CHW-12 is an incredible coffeemaker and one that you'll enjoy waking up to every morning!
