Yes, to a degree. There is no hotplate in the stainless-carafe pots...only glass carafes need a heater.
Heat is transferred through the frame from the pump heater, as well as through the plastic base of the carafe.
This means of course, that a few hours after brewing, the base should be cool...and if it is obviously too warm more than 2 hours after brewing, then leave it un-plugged until it can be replaced.
Not too long ago, coffee pots were the #1 cause of house fires...and they're still in the Top 5 causes: Don't take un-necessary chances.
*On a personal note: I owned this same model in 2009, and loved it...but it lasted no more than 6 months. Looks good, great features, but poorly made. (I had it open 4 times before giving up on fixing it again.)

I finally got in touch with the Hamilton Beach (1-800-851-8900 between 8:30-4:00 EST) and found out that Model 45235G replacement carafe is available for order from them for $25.98 (S/H included) plus state sales tax.
