We love our coffee, our old Bunn NHBB was starting to leak, and lets face it, it's an expensive unit too run having a water heater that runs 24/7. So the search began for it's replacement....after much reading and research we ordered the Cuisinart DCC-1200 Brew Central, later that day a friend told me that her's almost caught on fire!!! back to the internet, searched for that model and fire and surprise, surprise....seems the Cuisinart company has had many an issue with smoking/fire...UPS took that one back!! So back to the drawing board, while picking up a laptop that was being repaired at Bestbuy I spied this little beauty, I know the company well, we have several of their products, never any issues. Let's start from the beginning, the unboxing, it is packed really well, after a quick reading of the instructions we ran the initial cleaning run through..and onto the COFFEE!! We were both really impressed with the temperature of the coffee, it is spot on, for a unit without a 24/7 heater it is truely impressive. The carafe heater has two options, regular and hi, we use high and up too two hours later we have hot coffee. The only negative I can think of is the area where you pour your water in, it is a bit on the small side and fully emptying the carafe can be difficult, but with that being said I will be buying this unit again if and when this unit fails. FYI...to brew ten cups it takes about 8-9 minutes at regular brew strength (nice option) and you can go do other things while you wait, it beeps three time to let you know it's COFFEE TIME !!! You'll have too excuse me...I'm off to get another cup of coffee....

I have so many issues with this coffee pot. First, the coffee maker leaked when you removed the pot mid-brew in spite of the brew pause feature. I used my warrantee and was sent a replacement maker. The new maker doesn't leak but it beeps to indicate it's done brewing when it's still brewing with about 5 minutes to go. When I brew a full 12 cup pot I get only 10 cups and have to add water at the end of the brew cycle while is spews steam at me. And there's the hole in the back to prevent over filling so you can add extra water to compensate at the beginning. How they could not have figured that you need to add more water to compensate for evaporation is beyond me. Then, after about 5 months the change filter message came on so I ordered a 12 pack of filters. I changed the filter the message went away a brewed a second pot and the message came back on. I even unplugged the pot to reset the system. All that did was make me have enter the time and my preferences again. I thought maybe it was the filter so I changed it again same result. So now I'll never know when the filter needs to be replaced.

Died less than 6 months after purchased new
How exactly do you make something of such poor quality? It just stopped working. No indication as to why. I have been meticulous about cleaning and simply using it to brew coffee. You press "brew" and nothing happens. Normally I would thing maybe I just got a bad egg but logging on here to see if anyone else has had this problem and find 35 other reviews that say the same thing tells me we just have a bad product. Note I'm writing this at 6:50 am without coffee.....time to break out the old melita filter and pot and brew the way my parents did....
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Coffee maker just stopped working
This is not a way to start the morning. I have had this coffee less than a year. The lights are on but it stopped brewing. Also there is some corrosion around the lid. So strange. Not happy that I have to buy a new one already.
Don't Do It!
I purchased this on 01 Feb 2014 the first pot of coffee was Luke Warm! The filter does not filter. Coffee is my only vice, I am very sad! :(
DON'T DO IT!!
I HAVE GONE THROUGH 2 O THESE COFFEE POTS WITHIN A 9 MONTH TIME PERIOD. WHEN IT WORKS IT IS MAGNIFICENT! JUST DOESN'T LAST.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Excellent Coffee Maker, THE BEST!!!!!!!

Comments about Frigidaire 12-Cup Drip Coffee Maker:
Product is easy and very simple to use. Makes coffee very quickly. Everything about this coffee maker is great. There are no cons. No need for starbucks in the morning anymore, this is the best coffee maker money can buy.
quit after 8 months
Purchased this coffee maker in March 2013 and now in November it has stopped brewing. The last pot, which was made for guests, was barely warm. The next pot would not perk at all. Frigidaire was once a good product, what happened?
4 dead soldiers
I have 4 of these sitting in my garage dead all lasted less than a year. Any where from 3 to 6 months tops. Don't buy this machine!
looks good ,costs alot but no worky.
this is our second one, first one quit after 11 months, fridgidaire sent a replacment and that quit today. Same problem as the other reviews. The lights are on but no one is home. Time to buy a Mr.Coffee.
The coffee is OK but an inch of water stays in the reservoir, That can't be very sanitary. Also, the pot is impossible to empty completely. I have no idea how the more technical aspects work so I cannot comment on that. If there was a product features booklet, I have lost it.
good until it stops working
I have had this coffee maker for less than a year and as many of the other reviews have said, it stops working before 1 year passes. For such an expensive coffee maker, I would have expected a longer lifespan. The coffee machine still turns on and has power to it, but it just refuses to brew coffee.
