Calphalon® Quick Brew Thermal Carafe
Glass carafe is ok but not coffeemaker
We purchased this coffeemaker in February. If you want to use the basket instead of an actual coffee filter, the coffee leaks out all over the pot. Also, no matter how carefully I install the paper filter into the basket, the filter ends up folding over and I end up with grounds in our coffee. I feel the wholes in the lid are too many and the water comes out too strongly which causes the filter to fold over. I am not impressed with this coffeemaker and am going out tonight to look for something else.

we bought and registered the quick brew coffee maker, 1838803, NOT just the carafe.
Ther clock does not function, so therefore also the auto brewer does not function.

Bought this about 2 1/2 months ago, replacing 12-cup glass Calphalon that failed after about 6 months. This device now only makes 6-7 cups though reservoir is filled to line for 10. The screw top is a constant battle to align threads to secure it. It's difficult to pour last cup from carafe without turning the carafe nearly upside-down. Due to the fact it's now only preparing partial pots of coffee plus the other details mentioned, we plan to return this item and find a more reliable coffee maker from another manufacturer. Customer service was very helpful with prior item return, however.

I bought this to get a coffee maker that I could actually clean the water reservoir. Totally easy. My biggest complaint with most "all" coffee makers is the fact that unless you have plenty of room to set it out in the open, you have to slide it back and forth under the cabinet.

Good coffee maker until the carafe leaks
The carafe started leaking about five months into using it on a daily basis. The lid is hard to screw on as well. The thermal carafe does keep the coffee hot for many hours which I like. The coffee brew set timer is a plus. The carafe needs to be redesigned however. It is $50 to replace it which is ridiculous!

TERRIBLE CARAFE - LEAKS, HARD TO SEAT LID, HARD TO FIND LOCK & POUR & VERY TIGHT! TO CLOSE -- EXCEPT WHEN YOU POUR - COFFEE GOES EVERYWHERE -- NEVER HAVE I SEEN SUCH A BAD THERMAL CARAFE. ALSO, OVERFLOWS JUST WAY TO MUCH!!!!

we purchased this product because of the design. when we took it out of the box, we were pleased with the product even more, until we went to use it. The light in front did not work and either did the set up the time feature. we exchanged it a couple days later because we did not buy it locally and the store was very happy to exchange. we are glad that we purchased the same product. works excellent.

Thermal Carafe - disapointing
We've used this coffee maker a dozen or so times now and are continually disapointed with the functionality of this design. The screw on lid cross-threads almost every time leaving the lid at an angle and difficult to insert into the machine. The body design is such that we have to almost totaly turn the pot upside down in order to get the last cup or two of cofee from the pot. I think the engineers sould have actually tried using this product before it ever went to market!! learned a lesson about buying things via internet :-(
