Can anyone tell me if the 3 position filter holder with the manual brew stop will work with the CDGT which comes with the new holder with auto brew stop?  I would like the increased control the manual holder offers for brewing smaller amounts.

It won't work properly.  The KBT741 and KBGT741 have different filter holders.  Here is an illustration of such:

You are welcome.  I have th KBT741 with 3 position manual switch on basket.  If you do not have the Technivorm yet I highly suggest  getting the KBT741.  It is an excellent machine.

Thanks for the recommendation.  I don't have a machine yet but like the looks of the CD with the cylindrical "boiler" (it matches my La Pavoni).  This is a tough choice: easy pre-infusion or complimentary styling?  I'll let you know.

I have a La Pavoni also (lever action).  Actually the smoothness of the rectangular TV boiler goes nicely with the pavoni.  I believe the cylindrical boiler has ridges on the side?

Remember that the TV lasts a lifetime and likely will be the last brewer you will ever buy.  The extra functionality of the 3 position switch is what sold me on it.  I keep it closed the 1st 30 seconds of brewing, stirring the grounds after the 1st 15 seconds of water going in, then I turn it to 1/2 open. The last 60 seconds I stir again for about 8 secs.  I use the frieling gold filter for extra body.

Just an update:  I bought a CD Grand Thermal.  All other things being equal, I really like the looks of the cylindrical models over the square ones and I think the 12 cup thermal carafe on the grand model looks better with the machine than the 8 cup model.  I didn't need the 12 cup capacity but Williams Sonoma was having a one day sale and I got $130 off.  It was too good a deal to pass.  A bonus is that I had no idea that the grand model has it's own version of the manual close filter basket.  It doesn't have the half way position but the basket can be easily closed and opened during the brewing process.  It is perfectly fine brewing a half or even a quarter pot.  My first pot was some of the best coffee I've ever tasted!  It can only get better from here.

Congratuations on the purchase!  My KBT741 is a 12 cup, isn't the grand even larger?

Len,
It's definitely higher capacity than the KBT741 but I thought your machine was a 10 cup.  The Grand is 60 oz.

1.8 liter vs 1.25 for the KBT741
