Modern brewing technology with a retro design and stainless steel finish let Cuisinart’s Brew Central coffee maker blend with vintage kitchens and ones equipped with fashionable stainless modern appliances, too. The Brew Central makes up to twelve 5-ounce cups of coffee, with two settings for serving either one to four coffee drinkers or five to twelve–just the right amount of joe for a small gathering or a thermos-size day’s supply for the whole crew.
The Brew Central lets you go from pillow to pot with a digital clock/timer that programs for automatic “wake-up” coffee, setting up to 24 hours in advance. The coffee maker can also be set to turn off automatically up to four hours in advance. If you can’t wait for the brewing to finish, removing the glass carafe from the warming plate automatically pauses the brewing process for a quick pour. The hotplate temperature adjusts for hot, steamy sipping coffee with newspaper in hand, or for cup just warm enough for a swift swill on the way to work.
Cuisinart also equipped this coffee maker with a swing-out basket, so you don’t have to pull the whole unit out from under the kitchen cabinet to pour in the grounds. A charcoal water filter ensures optimal taste, and a permanent Gold Tone filter eliminates messy paper filters. An indicator-light shows when decalcification is needed for years of reliable use. The coffeemaker measures 14-1/4 inches high, 8 inches wide, and 10-3/4 inches deep (including carafe handle).Retro-style, brushed stainless-steel coffeemaker brews 12 5-ounce cups
