I was searching for a less expensive alternative to replace the carafe for our Gevalia XCC-12 model coffee maker (buying directly from Gevalia or some other outlets is expensive). This carafe from Medelco works perfectly in the XCC-12 model; I can't speak for other models of Gevalia coffee makers, though. I saw some other reviews on other sites that this Medelco carafe did not work in their Gevalia maker, but either they were talking about a differnet Gevalia model, or perhaps they failed to take off the removable adapter that comes attached to the lid of the carafe. It is a cone-shaped adapter that snaps onto the lid, and is necessary for some other models of 'pause-and-serve' coffee makers, but it is not necessary for the Gevalia XCC-12. If you leave that adapter on the lid, the carafe will not fit into the XCC-12. But take the adapter off, and it fits and works perfectly. The lid isn't the most sturdy piece of plastic in the world, but it will do.
