Cuisinart has been making quality kitchenware for over 40 years. More recently, they began developing coffee appliances, among them the Cuisinart Cold Brew Coffee Maker.

Our team had the opportunity to try, test, and review the Cuisinart DCB-10. We were particularly intrigued since cold brew coffee takes hours to make. However, the Cuisinart DCB-10 promises to produce 7 cups in only 25 minutes!

Does it deliver on its promise? Keep reading to find out.

Who is the Cuisinart Cold Brew Coffee Maker For?

The Cuisinart DCB-10 is for individuals who want the benefits of cold brew coffee without the wait. We found that this coffee maker does produce cold brew in only 25 minutes. However, depending on how strong you like your coffee, it could take longer. To use, simply load the ground coffee, add water, and press the brewing button. It doesn’t get any easier than this!

What Makes This Cold Brew Machine Special?

Our team found that the benefits go beyond quick brewing times. Here are the main takeaways from our review and what makes this unit so special:

  • – Powerful Design. The quick brewing time results from the strong design of this appliance. The spinning basket does a nice job agitating the ground coffee to extract the flavor. When brewing is complete, simply pull the lever and release greatness into the glass carafe.
  • – Strength Selector. How strong do you like your coffee? You’ll have three options to choose from with the Cuisinart DCB-10: mild (25 minutes), medium (35 minutes), and bold (45 minutes). It will even notify you when your brew is ready-to-drink.
  • – Filter Free. The stainless-steel brew basket eliminates the need for any paper filters – simply wash and reuse. Better yet? It’s dishwasher safe for added convenience. 
  • – Easy Cleaning. We enjoyed how mess-free the entire process of extracting cold brew was. The water tank and coffee filter basket are removable for easy filling. They are also dishwasher safe making the cleaning process a breeze.
  • – Limited 3Year Warranty. Customer satisfaction is important to Cuisinart, and it shows. The generous warranty says a lot about the quality of this product. It covers product defects, malfunctions, and gives buyers peace of mind.

We did notice that the taste produced by this coffee maker fell flat when compared to traditional methods. This did not come as a surprise since after all, we are comparing 25 minutes to 16+ hours of steeping.

If you are after that deep, strong taste we recommend selecting the “Bold” option when brewing. It will take a little longer, but compared to the amount it takes traditional methods, it’s an easy decision to make. 

Why Should I Buy This Cold Brew Coffee Maker?

Cuisinart hit it out of the park with this model in terms of convenience. It offers a strong cold brew minus the many hours of steeping. 

You should invest in this cold brew machine if you’re looking for a quick pick me up that tastes great. The glass carafe that essentially catches the coffee can also be used to store your coffee. You can keep it in your refrigerator for up to two weeks. With its 7-cup capacity, this is a nice option if you’re always on the go.

You should also buy the Cuisinart Cold Brew Coffee Maker if you are someone with a sensitivity to acidic foods. This appliance does not use heat at all in the process of making coffee resulting in smooth, less acidic flavors.

Our Verdict

The Cuisinart DCB-10 delivers ready-to-drink cold brew in as little as 25 minutes. It’s convenient in terms of time, ease of use, and cleaning. It also comes with a limited 3-year warranty. Shall we say more?

 

We really enjoyed using this cold brew appliance and are confident you will too. All that’s left to do is try it for yourself. Order the Cuisinart Cold Brew Coffee Maker today!
