Trudeau Stainless Steel 2 Liter Endure Vacuum Carafe
Nice carafe, but . . .
I liked the look of this carafe the moment I saw it, and ordered two: one in each color. I liked that it will hold an entire pot of coffee (12 cups). I figured out how to position the lid so that nothing spills or splatters -- give it just a quarter turn. But, there is another problem. After the carafe sits for a few hours, a vacuum is created to the point where opening it is very difficult. Even my husband has a problem. We've both been careful not to close it too tight, but there is still a problem. I've never had a carafe in the past that has done this. Not sure I can recommend this one -- you'll have to have some arm strength to open it.
pours incredibly bad!
The idea of this is nice- holds a lot- hot or cold- keeps things warm, hot or cold. But what is wrong with the pouring spout? It pours badly. And the cover comes loose- twice my husband poured all over the table when the lid fell off. So I take the lid off and pour. It still pours badly, spilling.
Nice looking however have two of Champagnes one in silver. One of champagnes is gold while the other looks brassy with a green tint. Not perfect color-wise but all in all has a nice look. Worth the money? Not really...
I used this for ice water. It keeps it so very very cold. But word of caution. It splatters when you pour it. If I had coffee in it you have to be extra careful not to spill it. I love how it looks.
