1. Cuisinart CHW 12-Cup Coffee Maker with Hot Water Dispenser
>>>See On Amazon<<<
All coffee makers can boil water. But this Cuisinart model has two separate water systems. Each system has its own reservoir and water window. So when you’re heating water for pasta, soup, or other uses, your water won’t have a coffee taint. Because the two units function independently, you can use them at the same time, which is fun.
The control panels are unlinked as well. That’s helpful because if one side of the coffee maker malfunctions, you can still use the other side undisturbed. This coffee maker measures 10.25 inches by 9.5 inches by 14.3 inches and weighs about 10 months so once you pick a brewing spot, you probably won’t move it around. It has a brushed steel case.
On the carafe side, there’s a brew-pause function and a 12-cup carafe. The carafe has a spill-free spout and if you want to brew a cup or two, use the 1-to-4 cup button. It automatically adjusts the temperature, water amount, coffee amount, and brewing duration to ensure your single cup has the same consistent coffee flavor as a full carafe.
An important safety feature is the manual lock on the hot water pump. It prevents spills and scalds. Your Cuisinart is a top candidate for the best coffee maker with a hot water dispenser because it has a self-cleaning function. And you don’t even have to figure it out – whenever the coffee maker needs cleaning, the LED will turn on to remind you.
Add one part vinegar to two parts cold water and press ‘clean’. Your Cuisinart is programmable and includes auto-on, auto-off, a 24-hour timer, and three carafe temperature settings (high, medium, low). On the hot water side, you’ll spot two convenient LEDs. One tells you the water is hot. The other tells you the tank is empty.
Cuisinarts generally rock the coffee world, but the CHW is especially impressive. It comes in four stylish color combinations and its 36-inch power cord is a godsend.
- The 3-foot plug widens your placement options.
- Its carafe has a spill-free serving spout.
- It has indicator lights for safety and convenience.
- The hot water dispenser sometimes gives off a ‘plasticky’ taste.
