Never used one of those product before, but after being so happy with Zojirushi Travel mugs of all sizes and the food thermos, convinced myself to try Carafe ad well. Majority of my friends love Tea and it was so convenient to make it in advance without running around after dinner or lunch- such a great design and keep the temperature for the whole day, didn't try overnight , as I finish my Tea through the day. Never thought that it is so convenient to brew Tea once and enjoy through the day without heating it up . Awesome new convenience in my life. Ordered bigger one 1.9L in stainless steel colour for my parents and am going to send to them as they use hot water for Tea and coffee through the day and their old thermos is not even near as good !!
The cap is just simply click on and off, unlike some other products I've owned, the screw cap is so tight and hard to undo it. More importantly, it keeps the water hot for at least a day long, I mean steamy HOT, really happy with it, wish it is slightly bigger.
