Cuisinart DCC-RWF1 Replacement Coffeemaker Water Filters, Set of 2
Product DescriptionCoffee is 98 percent water. Often overlooked, the quality of the water is as important as the quality of the coffee. A good rule of thumb is that if your water doesn't taste good from the tap, it won't taste any better in your coffee. That's why Cuisinart suggests adding a water filter to the coffeemaker. The Cuisinart DCC-RWF charcoal water filter removes chlorine, calcium, bad tastes and odors, for the purest cup of coffee every time.
- Set of 2 charcoal water filters helps ensure deliciously fresh home-brewed coffee
- Removes chlorine, odors, calcium, and other water impurities prior to brewing
- Simple-to-install design; requires replacing every 60 days or after 60 uses
- For use with Cuisinart models DCC-1000BK, DCC-1200, DGB-600, DCC-2000, and DCC-2200
- Measures approximately 1-1/2 by 2-4/5 by 5 inches

Not Necessary For Pure Water BUT Can Prevent a Clogged Valve, January 11, 2010
Esteban Ess (Austin, TX United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Cuisinart DCC-RWF1 Replacement Coffeemaker Water Filters, Set of 2 (Kitchen)Some time ago, I decided to stop using these expensive filters. I already have a Brita charcoal activated filter and use that filtered water directly into my Cuisinart. No problem and very good coffee. When I was using the small Cuisinart filters, I experienced a lot of problems with slow water feed resulting in steam and other problems. I decided, after spending some $16 on filters over a period of a year, that I was just wasting money on these filters. I cleaned the coffee maker after I stopped using the filters, am getting excellent coffee and no more slow water feed and a fine running coffee maker. The coffee tastes as good or better. But, please note that I am using filtered water - just not filtering it in the coffee maker.
This year, I found that the filter serves another purpose which is to prevent the occasional overflowed coffee ground from clogging the feed line and preventing all of the water to pass through the filter so you end up with less cups of coffee output...Read more

Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)I live in Seoul, South Korea, where it is inadvisable to drink water directly from the tap. Unless, that is, your idea of a good time is to let a little amoebic dysentery cozy up and get friendly with your colon.
Okay, so, the water isn't ALWAYS that scary to drink. Just, uh, just most of the time.
Even when the water doesn't make you sick, it usually tastes like it's been funneled through an old radiator. Coffeemakers, generally speaking, don't include water filters because the brewing process ostensibly kills all of the harmful bacteria. But you can still taste the heavy-metal-goodness in every last drop of leaden java. Lip smacking!
Anyhoo, I purchased a Cuisinart Coffeemaker recently (oh, how I love that machine), and it came with a package of these little filter fellows, and let me tell you, they do the...Read more
