About - DeLonghi DCF2210TTC

The DeLonghi DCF2210TTC is part of the coffeemaker test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, drip coffeemaker models like the DCF2210TTC are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Brew performance:
The ability to reach 195° to 205° F for five or six minutes, the industry standard for optimal brewing.

Reflects ease of filling the reservoir, placing the filter, gauging the amount of coffee remaining, and cleaning up. It also reflects how clear we judged the controls.

Carafe handling:
Covers handle comfort, tendency to drip while pouring, balance of a full carafe, and how easy it was to empty the last liquid. Models with no score here brew into single-serve cups or are brew-and-dispense models. The latter hold the coffee in a tank; you fill your cup by pressing it against the dispenser lever.

I inadvertently pushed the Clean button, it will not turn off. I went ahead and cleaned it but it still flashes all the time. I emailed their customer service asking how I could turn it off and never received a reply. The thermal pot does not keep the coffee hot, have to microwave.

Best Uses
I purchased the 12-cup model in this series. I was thrilled that the unit fit under my low countertops and the top swung out horizontally from the front so that the unit could be filled with water and coffee without having to move the coffee maker. I had the unit for several days and discovered that part of the visible display wasn't working so I couldn't tell if the digit was a 3 or an 8, for example. Initially, I was willing to overlook this defect. However, it took me a few more days to realize that it wasn't possible to pour a cup of coffee without dribbling coffee. Upon further examination, I discovered there was a leak in the seal where the glass coffee pot attaches to the plastic pouring spout. Lastly, I noticed that the front handle was not straight. I returned the coffeemaker to the store with the hope that this was just one defective unit. However, I opened the second one with store staff and the second coffee maker had the same problems.

do not buy
No Pros
Carafe heavy
Hard To Clean
Inconvenient to use
Mandatory clean timer
Ugly Design
Best Uses
Nothing is great. Most serious complaint is that dry grounds are found in filter at end of brew cycle -- waste of my good coffee! Clean indicator is on a timer, can't reset it -- mine does not need cleaning, I only use filtered water to begin with. Minor complaint that clock is 24-hour device without option.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
