New Brands Carried by Organize-It: Cuisinart

Cuisinart is another new brand the Content Team has added to’s stock of over 10,000 items.  Here is a sampling of the Cuisinart items carried by Organize-It:


Start your morning right with a cup of coffee made in this 12 Cup Cuisinart Coffee Maker. You can program this coffee pot to start brewing your coffee at a certain time each morning so you can have your coffee waiting for you when you roll out of bed. You can program it up to 24 hours in advanced and with an auto-shut off you don’t have to worry about your pot burning if you forget to turn it off on your way out the door. If you can’t wait until the pot is full to get your morning fix, the brew pause feature allows you to pause the brewing process so you can pour yourself a cup, without the pot dripping, and then have the coffee maker continue the cycle. An easy-to-read LCD clock is on the front.

Make ice cream and other frozen desserts right at home using the Ice Cream Maker by Cuisinart. Easy to use – you can make your own sorbets, frozen yogurts, and ice cream in less than 20 minutes without a lot of fuss or mess. The double-insulated freezer bowl holds up to 1 1/2 quarts. The bowl is BPA-free and dishwasher safe, for easy clean-up. To use, just throw in the ingredients and turn it on. Everything is mixed automatically with a patent-pending paddle that mixes while simultaneous aerating and freezing the ingredients. A transparent lid enables you to observe the ice cream making process. One of the benefits of making your own ice cream is that you can add your own ingredients to make desserts tailored to your own likes, whether they are healthy or delightfully decadent.

When you have a large household with busy schedules, and you find yourselves standing in line for the toaster and chomping at the bit, it’s time to invest in a 4 slice Cuisinart Toaster.  The toaster is made of attractive stainless steel so you’ll be happy to let it display on your counter for convenience.  Four self-adjusting slots accommodate a variety of thicknesses – from toast to bagels – and have dual temperature controls, which allow you to toast light and dark simultaneously – or toast bagels while you make waffles. Additional controls let you select bagel, defrost, reheat or cancel with the touch of a button (these are also dual controls).

Start your day the right way with the Cuisinart Coffeemaker. Fully programmable with a 12 cup capacity, this premier coffeemaker boasts a slew of fabulous features. The adjustable heater plate keeps your coffee at the temperature you like best – and the brew/pause feature stops spills when pouring coffee mid-cycle. The easy-to-use dials let you program brewing up to 24 hours ahead, select cup settings, and choose auto-shutoff.  The coffeemaker also includes a charcoal water filter, a gold-tone coffee filter, and a green indicator light that alerts you when you should decalcify your machine. When it’s time to clean, a simple auto-clean button does the job for you.



Cuisinart’s Griddler is a 5-in-1 cooking center that functions as a contact grill, panini press, full griddle, and half grill/half griddle. A worthy recipient of many rave reviews, the Griddler combines the best features of other appliances and rolls them all into one fabulous kitchen tool.  Countertop grills, while convenient, often have one sticky drawback: cleaning the plates. Cuisinart plates are removable and dishwasher safe, making the grill instantly more appealing. Another poor selling point on many grills is the lack of temperature control. This device has dual temperature controls for the griddle and grill/panini press, giving you the control of a full size stove.
