Great buy! Would refer to a friend!
This is a great coffee maker! It keeps the coffee piping out for a very long time and the fact that the outside is cold to touch is a blessings on its own. The design is beautiful as well. I love showing it off to my visitors. What a great buy!JustRubyPlz
Best value performance thermal carafe coffee maker
I have had this coffee maker for more than 6 months. Wanted to wait to review until I had used it for a while. Bottom line: If you follow ALL of the directions, this coffee maker is superb. When I make coffee, my first step is filling the carafe with the hottest water from my faucet. I let it sit while I grind beans, fill the basket, fill the reservoir, fill my mug with hot water, etc. Then after about 5 min. I dump the carafe out and brew. Coffee stays hot long enough to have two oversize mugs. I'm the only one who drinks coffee in my household so I can't speak for those who make a full pot every time. I fill to about 4.5 - 5 on the reservoir on an average day, to give you an idea. I think those complaining of water not getting hot enough may not be prefilling, or may be putting the carafe back under the basket after pouring their first cup. This causes the top valve to open where it meets the basket apparatus, so some room temp air is going to get in. The thermal carafe is easy to clean and keeps all the heat inside. I love that I can put the carafe directly on my counters without needing a trivet or potholder underneath. I am more than pleased with this coffee pot.Pamela
Keeps Coffee Warm if You Do It Right
I bought this for my single person office, since I detest throwing away 4-6 plastic pods every day, and I'm also not a fan of heated-all-day-in-a-glass-carafe-coffee. I've had it for a few weeks, and I am happy with my purchase. If you do it right, this thing keeps coffee at a drinkable temp for at least 4 hours. First, DO rinse it in hot water before brewing, otherwise all the heat from the coffee just goes to warming up the metal inside of the pot. Second, DO NOT PUT THE POT BACK ON THE STAND, unless you're going to take the filter basket out. The brew through lid pushes open when the filter basket and the lid are both in place, so you're just letting the heat out the top. Also, the lid doesn't leak unless I tilt it really far while pouring.CMGreenBay
