Rated 5 out of 5Â by Vicmama More than I expected!
Grown up in Asia, and I am so comfortable with this Brand Name. As some review recommended, I pre-heated with just small amount of hot water. Even at four hours since I brew my coffee, it kept still very hot. It was far more than I expected! I purchased this mainly for our church use. While we keep such hot coffee, we can brew another set. That is wonderful. I recommend this if you are planning a party, meeting, church, and any gatherings.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by TylerNJ Finally - a flaming hot pot of coffee!
I have suffered for years with a stylish but utterly useless carafe of another brand. It kept coffee warm for maybe 10 minutes. Enter the Zojirushi. Preheat it with some hot tap water (as you'd do with any thermal pot) then put your full 12-cup decanter of coffee in. You will enjoy a leisurely breakfast or afternoon and the coffee will be kept lip-burning hot for the duration! Not just warm, but flaming hot. It's a bit large in size, but it has to be in order to accommodate a full 12-cup decanter of coffee and still allow room at the top to pour without spilling. It is an auto-pour top so no buttons to push or switch to hold while pouring. The Zojirushi also has a nice lazy susan bottom so it's easy to swivel the handle to the right position for lifting. This is literally a life-changer. Don't hesitate to get this carafe! You will love it.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by HappyGirl So far so good!
This is the first carafe I have had (I've had 4) that keeps coffee hot all day. The quality seems to be good - I've only had it a month, though - and it's easy to use and pretty on the countertop. Time will tell if it holds up, but I really like it now.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by WANDER1 cant turn it so it doesnt pour ...doesnt close
it is okay. it keeps coffee hot pretty well. the ony problem is the lid doesn't turn to the point that when it tips it doesn't pour. i have tried different positions on the lid, and it always pours wherever i position the lid
