It's true: the spout makes the coffee dribble,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Medelco 4 Cup Universal Stainless Steel Replacement Carafe (Kitchen)
This dribbling/dripping issue should not have been a surprise when I received the carafe. All the reviewers who complained about a narrow spout were very correct. For some reason I thought mine would be different :(
I was ready to purchase another carafe but I decided to take the carafe to the garage and pound out the spout longer and wider. I used my 6-inch vise to rest (not clamp) the carafe side-ways and used a 3-inch wide cement chisel to bang on the spout. The steel is hard to bend but after about 30 whacks the spout did elongate and widen.
I gave it 3 stars instead of 1 because I felt that the carafe really is indestructible. It fits my coffee maker and it keeps the coffee warm. However the spout is poorly designed.
Purchase only if you have tools to widen the spout otherwise be ready for a big mess every morning when you have your cup of Joe.
