Another drip coffee maker! Cuisinart DCC-2600 14 cup

[amazonify]B00005IBX9:right[/amazonify][amazonify]B001NGO27W:right[/amazonify] So the Mr. Coffee coffee maker I had finally quit. It wasn’t expensive, but still annoying that it just died. It was probably about 3 years old. I liked that it had a green backlit fairly large analog-style (hands) but LCD clock. It had a thermal carafe which meant no burnt coffee from it sitting on a warmer, but the caraffe was heavy and hard to open, so this time I decided to go back to a glass carafe coffee maker.

Good friend recommended the Cuisinart DCC-1200 12 cup maker, which had very positive reviews but I looked a little more and found a 14 cup model that looked like it had a nicer looking design. I ended up buying a ‘refurbished’ one from Abe’s of Maine for just $59.95 + shipping. Shipping was pricey at $12.19 but I still saved nearly $30. It came quickly and looked just like new. Note: It did say refurbished by Cuisinart themselves and that the warranty is 90 days. Perhaps a non-refurbished one has a longer warranty.
So how is it so far?
