Thanks to a double-wall insulation, Hiware's heat/cold retention is impressive, ensuring that you can enjoy any beverage, hot or cold, at your preferred temperature all day long. Hiware server keeps hot beverages hot and cold beverages cold, so this is the way to serve hot coffee or tea, even your favorite cold beverages. With an elegant and decent appearance, the coffee server is a piece of artwork for decorating your kitchen and table.
Durable & Stylish Stainless Steel Construction
You're assured of long-lasting performance with both the inner and outer walls made of top quality 18/10 stainless steel that won't rust, scratch, pit or break. Plus, the brushed finish stainless steel makes a modern-classic design statement.
Outer Surface Stays Cool & Dry
Between the walls is vacuum insulation that seals heat and cold inside. Even when filled with steaming hot coffee, the carafe is safe to touch. If it's holding an iced drink, you'll find little to no condensation on the outer surface, which means less chance of water rings left on your furniture.
One-Hand, Push-Button Pouring
The thumb-operated lid lets you pour with one hand, then closes in a tight fit to maintain internal temperature longer.
Easy-Fill Wide Mouth
Save yourself from spills, drips and splashes when pouring your hot or cold beverage into the carafe. You can even add ice cubes with plenty of room to spare. The wide mouth also makes cleaning inside the carafe easier.
The stainless steel is a breeze to clean. You can put the carafe in the dishwasher, although hand washing is recommended.
Your complete satisfaction with the Hiware 2 Liter Stainless Steel Double Wall Insulated Carafe is backed by a full replacement guarantee.

The wall of the carafe is thin, but it has a vacuum in there and that is what keeps the heat from dissipating. However, the pour spout and cap and the handle are all continuos with one another and what happens is that, because they are metal, they absorb the heat that is rising from the hot coffee and the heat gets dissipated out from the handle and the surrounding metal.
But, it serves the purpose of our morning coffee keeping nicely for about two hours, or so. That is all I require of it to do.
It will hold the heat in pretty well if it is filled. Once, the amount of hot liquid gets reduced, so does the length of time that it will remain hot/warm.
It took me a while to realize that one difference between this one and the old one that we were using is that this one uses a vacuum, rather than a thick wall. Even thought it clearly states that it is a vacuum carafe, I just did not fully understand what the difference was. Now, I do understand.
I believe that I read on some review that it was reported that their carafe just ceased to hold heat. I suspect that the vacuum wall was breached and the vacuum was destroyed. So, one wonders how vulnerable is the seal on the vacuum. Once that goes, all you have left is a fairly attractive serving pitcher. I took off one star because of the heat dissipating out of the metal handle. It does a surprisingly good job of that!
Also, the top does not close well by just drawing the lever. It does not automatically align well with the opening and needs a push of the hand to reseat the top into the opening. I agree with some others that the lever action of the lid feels like a weak spot in the design.
Overall, I like it.
According to manufacturer's description, this carafe is designed for one hand operations.

In theory, to pour a beverage from the carafe, it should easliy work like this:
(a) your hand grabs the handle
(b) your thumb pushes the lever
(c) lever lifts the lid and carafe is ready to pour...
To close this vacuum-insulated carafe and seal it, it should work like this:
(a) Releasing your thumb from the lever releases the lever
(b) gravity pulls the lid down
(c) Once the lid falls back on top of the carafe, it re-seals the carafe
My carafe, for some reason, worked differently:
TO CLOSE OPEN CARAFE WITH LID IN UPPER POSITION:
(a) Releasing my thumb from the lever released the lever
(b) Gravity pulled the lid down, but ...
(c) Lid never fully reached top of the carafe, it created open gap of of approximately 8 mm (3/8 of an inch) in front and approximately 3-4 mm (3/16 of an inch) on sides.
(d) To seal the carafe, I had to use second hand, and push strongly on top of the lid.
This two-hand maneuver, however, defies the purpose of purchasing a carafe that could be used for one-hand operations around the table.
TO OPEN A FULLY SEALED CARAFE
I was able to open a fully sealed carafe with one hand, by applying quite a high pressure of my thumb on the lever. However, I don't think that that this "thumb-high pressure maneuver" would be safe around the table, especially if my carafe was full of hot tea or coffee. Risk of splashing hot beverage on my guests during this "thumb-high pressure maneuver" would be significant, I am afraid. It is much safer (and easier) to open a fully sealed carafe by both hands, where one hand holds the carafe + applies pressure on lever by thumb, and the second hand gently pulls up the lid.
SAFE OPERATIONS WITH HOT BEVERAGES
It seems to be safe to use this carafe by one hand for pouring of hot beverages, if you ACCEPT the following:
(a) The upper lid will not be fully sealed
(b) Since the upper lid will not be fully sealed, your hot beverages will not maintain their high temperature for too long.
(c) Once you finish pouring of hot beverages, you may seal the carafe by pushing strongly on top of the lid by your second hand.
(d) To open a fully sealed carafe, use both hands, where one hand holds the carafe + applies pressure on lever by thumb, and the second hand gently pulls up the lid.
Did Hiware send me a defective product, that does not represent otherwise good workmanship of this small business?
I will never know.
I have returned this carafe immediately back to Amazon (Thanks, Prime!), and I am not going to buy Hiware 68 Oz Stainless Steel Thermal Coffee Carafe, Double Walled Vacuum Insulated Carafe with Press Button Top, Quality Thermal Pitcher, Beverage Dispenser, 2-liter brand again.
I bought this carafe hoping to save a little money because I’ve been wanting a vacuum sealed carafe coffee pot that could sit and not burn my coffee. Buying this saved me at least $35, and that’s if I went for the cheapest option here on amazon. And we love our coffee, so I’d likely want something quality. And let me tell you, this carafe is quality! It’s so much more spacious than I expected. I love the top as it doesn’t leave room for hidden spaces to grow mold, and it looks absolutely beautiful and matches a lot of my stainless steel tea and coffee accessories. I would absolutely recommend this product!
