There are two major shortfalls noticed by the consumers while using this machine. The DCC 1100 BK has been noticed to catch fire due to the shorting out of the hot plate. The scorched counter is not a tolerable issue. However, this case has been addressed with a few counts of customers only.
Another issue is with the so called “drip less sprout”. It doesn’t seem to be perfectly drip less after all. The liquid has been noticed to leak while pouring which is a serious safety issue. But at that low a price, we can always an issue or two without room for complaints. After all, this machine provides you with a plethora of advanced features and of course, the coffee is awesomely good!
