- Another great feature of the carafe is that it is double-walled in stainless steel to help with thermal insulation. This means that your coffee will stay hotter, longer.

- The Gevalia Stainless Steel 10-Cup with Thermal Carafe also has an auto shut off feature to keep the machine from wasting energy when plugged in.
- The pause and serve feature means that you can pull the carafe from the machine, mid-brew, to pour a cup, then return it and let it continue the brewing process from where it left off.
- The machine also comes in either black or white, and it has a pack of 10 filters.
- The water level indicator on the side is also very helpful.

Advantages

The biggest advantage of the Gevalia Stainless Steel 10-Cup with Thermal Carafe is that it is easy to use. This machine is built for convenience and ease of use. Take it out of the box, give it a rinse, set it up, and you can figure out how to use the machine simply by looking at it (especially if you are already familiar with other coffeemakers).

The thermal carafe is a great feature because it keeps your coffee warm. You can take the carafe from the machine and leave it at the breakfast table and it will hold a warm temperature for a good amount of time. Overall, this is a great machine that brews good quality coffee and it is perfect for the average coffee drinker and coffee lovers alike.

Disadvantages

Perhaps the biggest disadvantage of the Gevalia Stainless Steel 10-Cup with Thermal Carafe isn't necessarily something about the machine itself, but it has to do with Gevalia's poor customer support.

recommended coffee maker

The coffee maker I purchased was the Gevalia Stainless Steel 10-Cup with Thermal Carafe. I got it quite a few years ago. I was not going to get it at first, because it was a part of one of those 'monthly membership' offers in a magazine, but I am a coffee lover so I had to try it. It is the best coffee maker I have ever owned, and that is quite a few. It is very durable and easy to clean because of it's metal shell. It is also easy to operate, I have my kids make my coffee some time. The brew-timer is pre-programmable so I don't have to worry about that in the mornings getting ready for work, And it turns off automatically after two hours, in case I forget to turn it off.

It also came with a free thermos so I know they were thinking of my on the go lifestyle when they made it. However, it gets really hot, since the outer shell is metal. Once I burned myself reaching past it for the sugar. It's also only a ten-cup maker, and I used to own a 12-cup maker. I drink large amounts of coffee, so that was one of the few negatives. It still beats my old coffee maker, since I do not have to keep cleaning those reusable filters, so it's a very fast and easy clean-up. I really love this coffee maker, and would recommend it to all of my friends.

Defective!
by: Pamela

We are on our third of these coffee pots. Every one works for the first two months, then something happens. It will brew about 2 cups and stop, 10 minutes later it brews 2 more. It takes forever to get a full pot done. Please replace this with a better more reliable one!
