on the carafe spout. Keep lid closed tightly to keep coffee warm.
• For best performance, rinse the carafe with warm water before brewing.

• Coffee is brewed directly into carafe through the closed brew thru lid. Always
check that lid is properly in place when brewing. Coffee may overflow if lid
is not properly in place. See instructions in "Brewing a Pot of Coffee."
• The carafe keeps coffee hot up to 4 hours so you can leave it away from
coffeemaker for serving. Always check that lid is properly closed in place
when not in use, this will ensure that coffee stays hot. See instructions in
"Sneak-a-Cup® Interrupt Coffeemaker Feature."
