Me as a consumer: 

If you like the old percolating process that your grandma used to make coffee for your required coffee strength, then Cuisinart PRC-12 Classic 12-Cup Stainless-Steel Percolator is just the right choice. It makes the perk sound while brewing the coffee. 

You can see the parking process through the transparent knob lid. This is the feature I liked about it the most. This percolator perfectly brings out the necessary oils inside the coffee grounds. 

Besides this feature another thing that attracted me is the indicator light that lights up when the coffee is ready to be served.

Like other percolators, this coffee maker has some problems too. Like the plastic lid at the top is very brittle as we all know plastic is not durable for a long time, and without the lid, you cannot make the coffee in the pot as coffee will spill during the percolating process. 

Besides plastic is not good for health also. Another negative point is that it does not have any keep warm mode like another percolator. So if you don’t drink the coffee instantly then it may become cold and tasteless. 

Though the product description says that the basket is made of stainless steel, but I think that is made of aluminum. The heating element is not that durable too. Some product’s heating elements started to fail after one year of use. 

Final remarks:

In spite of some of these problems, this percolator works fine for me. As I was tired of the drip coffee makers and was searching for a great old-style percolator so this product works great. It makes coffee of my desired strength and has some good friendly features too. 

I hope that you liked the Cuisinart coffee percolator reviews that is one of the best electric coffee makers on our list. I would suggest it for other customers too, but some problems might come out. No product is fault-free. And you can get it at a reasonable price too.
