Carafe Safety Precautions

This symbol alerts you to the potential danger for personal injury if you fail to
read and follow these safety precautions.
This symbol reminds you that glass is fragile and can break which could result in
personal injury.
• Do not use a cracked carafe or a carafe
having a loose or weakened handle.
• This carafe is designed to be used
only on the Keep-Hot Plate of your
coffeemaker. Do not use on a gas or
electric rangetop, or in a microwave
or conventional oven.
• To avoid breakage, handle carafe with
care. Avoid impact. Glass will break as
a result of impact. Use care when filling
with water to avoid hitting faucet.
• Do not place hot carafe on cool or wet
surface. Allow to cool before washing
or adding liquids.
• Do not set empty carafe on a hot
heating surface.
• Do not clean carafe with steel wool
pads, abrasive cleanser or any other
materials that may scratch.
• Do not place hands inside carafe.
When handling, be careful if wearing
any hand jewelry, especially diamond
rings. Jewelry can scratch the glass,
which increases possibility of breakage.
• Do not bump, scratch, or boil dry
the carafe.
• Discard carafe if it is cracked,
scratched, or heated while empty
for an extended period of time.
• To avoid accidents, do not pour in
the direction of people.
• If stirring in the carafe, use only wooden,
plastic, or rubber utensils. Do not use
metal utensils.
• Follow the above safety precautions
carefully to avoid serious burn injuries
which may result if breakage occurs
while carafe holds heated liquids.
