Starbucks® Stainless Steel Holiday Carafe
Beautiful carafe, I love the deep red which happens to be my accent color of choice. The carafe is very sturdy built, feels great when handling.
This piece is what I chose to purchase as a splurge with gift money from Christmastime.
The measurement of what the contents hold is in discrepancy. The description online says 50 oz, the box states 40 oz, the engraved description on the bottom of the carafe shows 42 oz, and my invoice said 34 oz. I measured and went with 42 oz since you are only suppose to fill the carafe to just below the bottom of the stopper.
This carafe does not keep coffee hot for as long as I had expected for a carafe that appears to be built so solid.
Overall, I would recommend this product. It is beautiful, still holds a generous amount of coffee at a time, and with good timing will keep coffee hot long enough to use it up.

stainless steel carafe
Love the carafe. The lid is a rubber/plastic threaded cap that screws closed and opens with a turn for pouring. The lid seals well and the stainless (if it's pre-warmed with hot water) will keep the coffee hot for several hours. And it looks so pretty on the counter!
Putting the lid on and getting it threaded correctly from the beginning can be a challenge because it cross threads easily. So I'm very careful when threading it so that I don't destroy the seal of the threads.

IT LEAKS, DOESNT KEEP COFFEE HOT AT ALL
Its very pretty and shiny.. festive looking for sure. But the one I received leaks no matter how much I tighten the lid. Because it leaks, its not keeping my coffee hot. 2 hours into my shift at work, it's lukewarm, I purchased it so I'd have coffee well into my shift when I need it late in the morning. I looked back and saw all the the good reviews, and decided to call Starbucks rather than just return it. They immediately are mailing a replacement to me. I'll update when I get the new one. I'm sure it will have a better seal.

Holiday and all year long
This is a quality carafe. Lid screws on tightly. Directions say push lever to dispense, but there is not a lever. It has to be unscrewed a little. Works well. Color metallic red and Silver. Unfortunately it DOESN'T match the Red & Silver Holiday Cups.!

I have red accents in my kitchen, and Starbucks red carafe is a highlight. Everyone loves it.
