I want to use a thermal carafe on my coffee maker instead of the glass one-is this possible?

by admin on May 4, 2010

I have a Cuisinart Brew Central 12-Cup Coffee Maker and it only stays on for 2 hours from brew time. some days my husband wakes up 4 hours before me and I am left with cold coffee. I want to get a carafe and saw that cuisinart makes coffee makers that come with a thermal carafe. Is it possible to buy a replacement carafe for that model and use it with my coffee maker (it has the hot plate on the base)? Or am I better off buying just a seperate thermal carafe to have him pour the hot coffee into? Any suggestions on a good brand? Thanks!

My coffee pot just croaked so I tossed it, and just kept the thermal carafe. I bought a new cheapo one for 9.99 with just a glass carafe until I can decide what kind I want. When I make coffee in the glass carafe, I pour boiling water into the thermal carafe, and let it sit for five minutes to get the carafe hot, then I pour the coffee in it IMMEDIATELY because letting coffee sit on the hotplate to keep it hot for even 15 minutes RUINS the taste. You’ll just have to a google search for your brand of coffeepot, and see if you can get a replacement thermal carafe. In the mean time, you should tell your husband to just make enough for him, and let you make yours later. I wouldn’t want coffee that had just been kept hot 30 minutes on the warming plate. Yuk!
