I wish to send you pictures of the underneath parts our Cuisinart DCC-1150 coffee pot (after 4 years of use) as
I am concerned with the safety issue here. We were experiencing water on the counter under the coffee pot so
my husband took the bottom off to investigate the problem and we saw heavy corrosion around the heating coil
and associated wires. We did purchase another DCC-1150 as a replacement, but now I do not dare to leave it
plugged in because of this safety issue. The pot has a timer to start the coffee at a certain time. Well,
this just can’t happen if you don’t trust leaving it plugged in. (The instruction manual actually says: “Always
unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning.”) My husband, an aerospace engineer, said that if
proper materials were used, there would not have been corrosion to such a degree and there would have been less
of a safety issue. We did send an email to Cuisinart asking that my complaint be forwarded to their engineering
