Love my coffeemaker, but there's a defect in the design here,
This review is from: Delonghi GC03 Coffeemaker 10 Cup Carafe, Black
Just to let you know, the handle on this coffee carafe doesn't unbolt (as they do on other carafes.) And at the top of the handle, where it meets the vertical part of the plastic molded unit, there is a stress point. You can get cracking and the handle will pull away from the carafe.
Make sure, if this happens to you, that you carefully support it and don't pull on the handle (especially full of hot coffee.) You can superglue or epoxy the handle right back on (I dabbed Superglue onto the cracked surface by pulling the handle slightly away, then pushed it back and pressed it to bond.)
The pot is as good as new. But if you bash yours over the faucet as you stupidly dash out drops of water after washing, then this will come in handy. I am very fond of this coffeemaker; it makes great coffee and I'm glad Amazon carries these carafes.
