So is $599 the "new normal" sale price on these? The sale price was $479-$499 for a long time and I never pulled the trigger, hoping to find one closer to $400. Now it seems those price ranges aren't coming back. What's the thoughts on that?

I think I'll stick with my $50 DCC-1200 Cuisinart!

Yes it seems like the base prices have all jumped $100 since 2020. Right now the best way to get a deal is to jump on a "sale" like this one where the price is back to pre-covid level and try to use the 20% Bed Bath and Beyond coupon in person or over the phone (hit and miss success) or try to get somewhere like Best Buy to match the BBB coupon-applied price.

Cuisinart Brew Central DCC-1200 is a brew coffeemaker, it cannot compare with an espresso coffeemaker.

What? Why is this so expensive now? I got mine around $450 almost 2 years ago. It's a great unit but was routinely available for$480-500

So I use a $39.99 steam expresso maker.

I fill the MAX amount of coffee (have a burr and use the finest setting), I fill the MAX amount of water the machine can take and I microwave about a half a cup of skin milk. I then put it into a 30oz tumbler and I good for the day.

I know I am ignorant... I really don't care about the milk frother.

I don't think this machine can make as strong as an expresso as my machine due to the amount of coffee that I put in. I don't like expresso's but I do love my long coffee lattee.

I also think that to make 4 cups of expresso, it would take at least twice the amount of time that it takes me right now (if not 5 times longer).

Lastly, it is not the money.... (I know I have the cheapest thing possible).

Of course, but if I wanted espresso, I'd just go to a Starbucks. Let them pay for and maintain the equipment. But I agree, it would look pretty in the recycling dumpster.

But this is a terrible espresso maker. Just get a Gaggia as an introductory espresso machine.

An Aeropress and a cheap Krups grinder with good technique rivals our Rancilia Silvia V1 and Baratza Vario. No, it's not espresso, but it's good.

Quote from blackscorpion312 :

Yes. The new models up and down the line have the 3 second warmup times (PID). Once you go PID, you will be hard pressed to go back to the older tech found on these (unless you're retired I guess, or never in a hurry).

The newer models also have better frothers, and grinders.

But sadly, you lose the dial that this one has. WHY, Breville?!

Maybe the next gen models will have a dial, AND the other upgrades. Not holding my breath though. I guess they thought the dial makes it look old and obsolete, but those things are super useful, looks be damned.
