Topic: Alternative Carafes for the Technivorm KBT (3 msgs / 89 lines)
1) From: Brent - SC/TO Roasting
Hi, all.
Has anyone found a replacement carafe that fits/ works with the TV KBT?
I just ordered a replacement for mine from Sweet Maria's.  The
replacement cost is almost 1/4 the cost of a new machine (that's not a
swipe at Sweet Maria's, it's probably the standard rate for the
replacements), so I really don't want to buy another one.
I've had the original SS carafe since October.  It's only been
handwashed and air-dried.  It's not been banged around or otherwise
abused.
Nonetheless, the outside bottom of the carafe has started to split
(and, oddly, not along a seam either) and the plastic/handle spout has
loosened.  Kind of wonder if this really is stainless steel.
Thanks for your help.

i haven't looked for a replacement, but i have noticed a problem with mine, 
too.  a couple of minutes after brewing, i can hear the sound of gas 
escaping from within the carafe.  i suppose it could be coming from a void 
between the ss and plastic spout because the outside of the carafe stays 
cool.  if you find a replacement, let us know.

Have you asked Maria about warranty? Seems like a defect.

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers 
exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will 
instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more 
bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
