Cuisinart DCC 2800-- Poor reliability
Best Uses
VERY POOR Reliability<br />We selected this model because of its top ratings but the first one failed in less than two months. We took it back to Belk's and they provided a new one in exchange. Now the new one has died after another 8 to 10 months. Needless to say, we aren't going to try a third time. We could no longer find the sales slip but Belk's provided a gift card equivelent to the purchase price. Kudos to Belk's but a Bronx cheer to Cuisinart.
