Cuisinart CBC-6800PC Review

The Cuisinart PerfecTemp at Costco Wholesale

Costco recently put the CPC-6800PC on sale. In November there was a coupon for $15 off.

For a short period in December the coffee machine was sold out. However, the machine is back in stock.

Continue reading the why we think it’s the best coffee maker at Costco.

Cuisinart PerfecTemp 14-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker

Cuisinart is known to make quality products and this coffee maker is no exception. The Cuisinart PerfectTemp coffee maker has a lot of useful features while looking good on the counter top. Using real stainless steel, the Cuisinart CBC-6800PC looks good.

You’ll also notice a “bold” button on the machine. This allows you to control whether you would like a strong or regular batch of coffee. The other useful feature is the temperature control feature on the warmer. The easy to access reservoir is great too.

The easy to use self-clean feature stood out on this Cuisinart model.


  • Carafe temperature adjustment
  • Self-Clean feature
  • Programmable auto off setting 0-4 hours


  • Ink has a tendency to rub off over time
  • Can clog if not mindful

The biggest issue with this coffee maker was if the basket was not firmly in place or the carafe lid was not on correctly. If either of these happen the coffee grounds go up in the top water dispenser and clog it. It can be fixed, if you’re handy.

Cuisinart accepts it back within the warranty period, but the buyer pays shipping and processing fees.

The ink rubbing off was another issue. Not great for an office or if you’re careless when in a hurry.

The easy to use self-clean feature, brew strength control and carafe temperature features stood out on the Cuisinart CBC-6800 model.

What's the Difference Between the Cuisinart CBC-6400PC & DCC-3200?

You may have noticed 2 very similar looking Crusinart coffee makers. If so you probably asked yourself, “What’s the difference?”

Looking at the specs wouldn’t help much. They both have a charcoal water filter, reusable gold-tone filter, reservoir indicator, & more similarities.

The difference between them is simply the control panel on the front. Neither of them are superior to the other. Select the one where you find the best deal and you’re good to go.


The Cuisinart PerfecTemp CPC-6800 is a well rounded, easy-to-use coffee maker. This model has many options for brew strength, coffee temperature, a self-cleaning feature, and it’s easy of use.
