Pampered Chef: Carafe Question

    I had a host order the carafe and it came with the inside broken. I called HO and got her a new one sent out. HO told me to just throw away the carafe. Well I hate to throw away anything... much less something as pretty as the carafe. So looking at the parts listing... I see I can order either "229A Carafe Glass Insert and Rubber Ring" or "229G Carafe Liner with Collar (fits item #2291)"... so which do I need? Is one of these for the old white carafe? On the product info it states that replacement part available as "229G". I just want to make sure I order the correct one b/c I know parts can not be returned... and the 229A is $19.75. If anyone has had to replace the glass inside and could help me out... I would be grateful!!!

    Thanks!

    That would be a tricky one if you didn't have an old catalog. Luckily, I do, and the old carafe number was 2290. Since the new one's number is 2291 I would say it is 229G is a safe bet as being the replacement part you need. If you still question it you can always call PC to double check.

    How would you replace the inside broken part? I have a broken one at home, I took it to a show and a boy knocked it over. :(

    My guess is it would come with instructions on how to replace it. I know the directions say to not submerge carafe in water. I think the bottom must come off somehow.

    I've never tried it but I don't see how the inside is replaceable. Did you call HO and ask?

    I sent solutions center an email. I'm just impatient and hoping one of you had done this. The directions to the carafe doesn't say anything about taking it apart. But like I mentioned there are replacement parts on the parts listing. I have taken the carafe apart and it was fairly easy. Where the seam is on the carafe you just twist and it unscrews. I'm assuming once I find out which one to order, it will come with the complete instructions for replacement. Now I'm very interesting in finding out. :rolleyes:

    I love mine. I make a pot (6 cups) of coffee in the morning, and pour it into my prepped carafe (put hot tap water in it while the coffee is brewing). It stays hot for hours. And my house goes down to 60˚ during the day. :eek: The liner is glass, so you can't throw it around, but I'm not super-careful with mine and it's fine.

    I thought I remember at conference when they introduce the new carafe they said it was replaceable -

    I am interested as well since I had a similar situation - I just haven't ordered the replacement insert yet - AND I hope it comes with instructions - trying to get the broken one out, I have cut my fingers twice (hence the waiting to order the insert!!)

    Okay, just called HO b/c they never returned my email. It is replaceable and the part number is 229G... ONLY $7! They also said it did come with instructions. So now I can't wait!

    I just had to get a replacement for the older white one and it was the higher priced one. The bottom of it just screws off after you take a butterknife and loosen it. There is a slot on the bottom and you turn it a few times and the bottom screws off.
    I am sure the new one would be the same. You would have to take the bottom off for the insert to fit.

  16. I know this post is 11 years old but was my first search option today. Maybe this will help someone else. Unscrew the bottom half of your carafe be careful because this will expose the glass inside I find it helpful to have my husband Hold the top half well I gently pull with dry hands. You may have to wiggle the glass a bit but be careful as you don't want to break the neck. There should be a seal on top of the glass you can easily pull that off on top of the carafe. On the top of the pour take a dull butter knife anyting not sharp and pop the top seal out I'm unable to get the black plastic collar around the opening out. Do not forget about the white seal on the cap you can push out with a dull butter knife.
    Hope this helps someone.
