Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker
Hi, This is more of a question, as I have no problems with my coffee maker. I have the Cuisinart, DCC-1200 12 cup coffee maker, and am very pleased with it, One thing I'm not totally satisfied with, and it seems to be with coffee makers in general, is the amount of technical details about them, as in how they work, what technologies are used, how those technologies work etc. anyway, I have been experimenting with features, and last night I tried the 1-4 cup button, to see what the difference is, either way, the pot of water, or coffee is extremely hot. (usually i'll run a plain pot of water in testing) as not to waste coffee. One thing I noticed when the 1-4 cup button is on is this maker still brews all the water and makes a great pot, but it seems to brew slightly slower in 1-4 cup mode, but not enough to make an issue of or even rate the product poorly over. what I have noticed is, in regular mode, the water is a nice constant stream into the carafe, in 1-4 mode i'll get stream spurts if it's on a slower timer, I know it's not clogged, as it's new, and like i said regular mode and this mode work fine, it just seems to be timed differently. Is this normal to ensure a hotter brew and it's just a hidden detail of 1-4 cup mode ? i'm just curious. either way, the product works great, without issues.
Back to the original question, I'm puzzled about the 1-4 cup mode as well. Actually, I'd PREFER the maker to go a bit slower. There's many times too much water in the filter basket waiting to drain and sometimes it overflows making a horrible mess. Just one of the very annoying things about this maker that I've come to live with. I think I'll post a review of this annoying beast on the forum!
