Starbucks® Stainless Steel Holiday Carafe
Works well, very attractive. My old silver carafe finally wore out, so this is my Xmas present to me.

Didn't hold temperature
I always use a carafe after making a pot of coffee to keep it warm without overheating it. Since my favorite carafe broke, I have been in search of one to replace it. I thought that with the weight of this one it would hold the heat better. Alas it did NOT hold the temperature as well as I hoped and I am back searching for a carafe that doesn't leak and holds the heat for a long time.

This was a gift until I saw how beautiful it is. The intended receiver is receiving the cute candy cane striped travel mug this was too beautiful to part with

Beautiful and perfect function
I was expecting something a little less well constructed, honestly. I was pleasantly surprised. The red color is distinctly holiday, but as an avid tea drinker, I will use it through all the cold months and probably summer too, although possibly to a lesser extent.
This carafe is just as sturdy and well made as all of Starbuck's stainless steel travel mugs and thermoses. The tea stays hot long enough for me to drink the entire carafe and the tea that comes out in the last cup is still too hot to drink right away. I am very pleased. My only complaint would be that it is heavier than I expected and so may be hard for some people to manage, especially when it is full of liquid.
