As of 2015, one can buy a Cuisinart coffee maker from a range of department stores and online retailers including Bed Bath & Beyond, Macy's, Kohl's and Overstock. Shoppers can also order Cuisinart coffee makers directly from the manufacturer.
Cuisinart coffee makers come in several styles and offer a range of features. Shoppers can choose from drip coffee makers or percolators. They can opt for coffee makers that brew up to 14 cups of coffee or coffee makers that only make one cup at a time. Some Cuisinart coffee makers come with built in burr grinders, and standalone Cuisinart coffee grinders are also available to complement Cuisinart coffee makers. Extra features are also available on some coffee makers, including programming options, thermal carafes or hot water dispensers for tea. Cuisinart also makes classic percolators.
Now famous for making a range of home appliances from coffee makers to stand mixers, Cuisinart originally started by making food processors and other chopping tools for the kitchen. The company, which is owned by the Conair Corporation, began producing products in 1971. It focuses on producing high-quality products for upscale department and speciality stores. The brand name Cuisinart is a portmanteau of cuisine and art.
