Cuisinart Grind & Brew Coffee Maker – Sub a Glass Carafe for the Thermal Carafe?

by admin on May 1, 2010

I bought this for a Xmas gift for my sister. At times, she will prefer a Glass Carafe for when she only makes 3 cups and wants to see whats left. You can’t see whats left in the Thermal one. I don’t see any reason why she can’t use either. Does anyone know for sure?

She can absolutely get a glass carafe to replace the thermal one. In fact, I’ve linked to the replacement glass carafe.

She’ll need to buy this real Cuisinart-brand replacement glass carafe because it has the specially-designed lid to push up on the little button that allows coffee to freely pour from the brew basket.

The only minor down side is that, since the Grind & Brew comes with a thermal carafe, it doesn’t have a warming plate on the bottom to keep the carafe warm. This won’t cause any problems with making the coffee or using the machine, it just means her coffee will cool down after a while…not a huge deal breaker or anything.

Other than that, if she buys this glass replacement carafe, she’ll be fine.
