I have a Cuisinart electric coffee maker that had been used to make coffee on the morning of 3/24/14. Later, we heard a crackling sound coming from the unit. When I entered the kitchen, smoke was coming from the unit and a strong burning plastic smell was in the air. I verified that the "On" light was not lit. I removed the pot and the heat surface was glowing red with smoke coming from the back. I unplugged the unit and carried it outside. I hate to think what could have happened if we had not been home or been asleep at the time. The unit model number is BCC-1100BK.
