12-Cup Pause and Serve Universal Replacement Carafe
Works with Pause and Serve Models
Product Built to North American Electrical Standards
The 12 Cup Replacement Carafe is designed to fit most "traditional" style coffee makers with the "pause and serve" feature including Mr. Coffee, Black & Decker, Proctor Silex, etc. This carafe is packaged with a lid adaptor to expand the fit. The position of the "pause and serve" or "sneak a cup" feature on your coffee maker will determine if you need to use the adaptor. The pot is made from laboratory quality borosilicate glass from Germany, is dishwasher safe and thermal shock resistant.

We had a terrible time trying to find a replacement carafe for our Gevalia Coffee Maker Model XCC-12. Gevalia sells replacement carafes but they always seem to be on back order. So we tried to find another brand and read a user comment that the Medelco Universal Replacement Carafe works in Gevalia Coffee Makers. We just weren't sure which Gevalia model and which Medelco model works well together. So please note that the Medelco 12-cup Universal Replacement Coffee Carafe Model GL220 fits and WORKS GREAT in Gevalia Coffee Maker Model XCC-12. The replacement carafe comes with a LID ADAPTOR which we attached and use. The "pause & serve" feature on the coffee maker works fine, too with this setup. We placed a call to Medelco Inc. 1-888-MEDELCO (or 203-275-8070) for advice and also note that their customer service is excellent!
The glass carafe replacement pot is my second for my workhorse Krups ProAroma coffee maker. Will return the carafe, paying $6. postage myself to Amazon. The first replacement carafe I just broke was from Bed, Bath & Beyond was made by Melitta. They no longer carry it and is not available online anywhere. The Medelco is the only 12-cup replacement carafe I could find that looked like the correct proportion. There were no measurements available. It is just a hair too wide to fit smoothly into the old coffee maker. It is snug and would have to be carefully pulled out with two hands. The worst part, however, is the design of the lid. Even with the enclosed adapter piece, it does not function properly and coffee will not dispense from the basket. My make-shift solution is an 8-cup glass Pyrex measuring pitcher. Cannot brew 12 cups, only 4 at a time. Tried the newest, fanciest Krups coffee maker but had to return it to Bed, Bath due to bad engineering. Drinking tea might be easier!
I needed a replacement carafe for a coffeemaker in the office. I saw that Medelco makes these "universal" replacements...but noticed that in some instances Amazon customers were leaving them negative feedback, that the replacements didn't fit as promised. So I wrote to Medelco customer service asking if this particular replacement would fit my particular coffee maker. I received a reply that yes it would. What customer service did NOT tell me was that there are two little pieces of plastic in the box and a 3"x3" square of paper that explain that if you use certain models they will ONLY work if you put one of the little adaptors into the top. We discovered that after the first use of the carafe - with coffee bubbling over the sides of the maker. I was about to return it when I remembered the little bits of plastic...sure enough, you snap one in and then the carafe fits.
It's a clever system for which Medelco ought to get credit. But because they don't tell you here,...
