I owned one of these carafes and made the mistake of replacing it with the other one offered by Gevalia ... I'm buying a new one of these today with my regular coffee order. What can I say? An excellent, quality product worth the money I pay for it! Highly recommended! :)
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have had this carafe for quite a while, but was not using it because I had an air pot that I really liked. Unfortunately the air pot gave up and I started using the Gevalia carafe. I really like the way it pours and never leaks, but it just doesn't keep the coffee hot long enough (even if I fill it with hot water first).
No, I do not recommend this product.

This was another free gift, but it's just taking up space in a cabinet. I haven't used it in years. Does it work? Well, yeah, sort of--but it doesn't keep coffee warm for very long. Even when preheated with hot water, the coffee loses warmth very quickly. I'd be happy if it kept coffee at a good drinking temperature for an hour or two, but it doesn't hold heat for nearly that long. If you can tolerate tepid coffee after a half hour, this might work for you. Otherwise, look elsewhere.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I got this as a gift. I loved it until this mornong. There is water trapped in between the outer shell & inner shell. It won't come out except for a small drip when it is on it's side. So now it is laying on a towel to dry. It kept my coffee hot for about 2 hours. But I rarely drink my coffee hot. I prefer iced. It does an A+ job at keeping my coffee cold (I mix the coffee & creamer in here) for about 5-6 hours if I put the carafe in the fridge to cool the hot coffee. My biggest issue is that it is a nightmare to clean.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I got this thermal carafe free along w/ the travel mug when I had a co-worker sign on to Gevalier- since it was a free-gift from Gevalia, I am thrilled with it! Otherwise I think it's a bit pricey and you may do better else-where. It keeps the coffee quite hot for about 5-6 hours; but really, who likes to drink coffee that old anyway?! [blech!]
I use it when we have house guests and I want to brew back to back pots so there is enough hot coffee to go around and we don't have to wait for the second pot to brew- Works great if you want 2 pots of different brews such as a medium, flavored, or french roast, and just 1 pot! ;-)
Does NOT drip when poured; easy to clean.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Followed instructions and pre-heated carafe with hot water while coffee brewed. Kept coffee hot about 2 hours. At the end of 6 hours coffee was cold so that I had to 'nuke it' to bring it up to a drinking temperature. I also found it would only hold about 4 of the 12 cups I brewed. Guess that I will have to go back to my half gallon (2 quart) stainless steel thurmos which kept my coffee drinking hot for over 12 hours. Howard

I have two thermal carafes from Gevalia
Posted October 22, 2012
Both Gevalia Carafes do not hold the heat. They are cool to luke warm in an hour requiring rewarming. My coffee mug is insulated and it holds the heat better - and it has a hole in its top.
What gives? NOT WORTH THE MONEY!
Also, why would anyone think the rest of the Gevalia products are better after experiencing this.
FYI: I preheat the Gevalia Carafe with 180 degree water from my continuous hot water system filling it and placing top on for at least 15 minutes before filling carafe. The coffee is 200 degrees on average when filled.
