    Cuisinart Grind & Brew 10-Cup - Carafe sucks- suggestions?

    Hey guys, just yesterday I purchased a Cuisinart Grind & Brew Thermal 10-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker, model DGB-650BC. I really love the machine, but the thermal carafe is just awful. You basically have to turn the carafe completely upside down for the coffee to pour and even then there is still always a small amount of coffee left in the carafe that simply won't pour no matter what you do. My questions are: Does anyone know if Cuisinart has a different type of 10-cup carafe that is better designed? If not, does anyone know of a way to modify this carafe to make it more pour-friendly? And last--if not, is there a substitute carafe that I could use from a different manufacturer that would fit with this maker? THANKS!

    I agree it doesn't pour very well. I just take the top off.

    Hello,

    I think they designed the top of the carafe so it will keep the coffee hot and not allow air in.

    I really like how the carafe keeps the coffee hot until I'm ready to drink it. It took me a while to get used to having to tip the carafe horizontally in order to pour out the coffee. (I use both hands now) If you keep taking the top off when you pour the coffee, it will cool down too fast. I only take the top off when I want to get the last bit of coffee out of the carafe, and then I have to aim it right or I'll spill the coffee all over the counter top.

    Exactly what I do pour the last cup with the top off and try not to spill it. I do love the way it keeps the coffee hot for a long time.

    We have a similar model, but not the grind and brew. Just the brewer. The carafe is nice looking and does keep the coffee hot. We also have a Krups brewer and don't feel bad, it has the same problem.

    In order for the pot to sit under the basket, it appears the shape must have the closed area under the spout, and that is where the trouble starts. Drives me nuts. Transfer the delicious brew to a serving coffee pot and your troubles are over, but then whoever has to do the dishes will give you the evil eye

    Recently we bought the most wonderful coffee maker: Moccamaster Techni Vorm. And lo and behold the carafe is wonderful too, down to the last drop.

    Cheers,

    Lisa
