    Reasonable purchase at the price, but some niggles

    Posted
    StaffanTj

    I replaced my Faberware percolator with one of these after the Faberware finally gave out after 8 years of daily use. Whilst it brews a reasonable coffee (and cost 1/2 the price of the unit it replaced), that cheaper cost comes with a few niggles that are worth mentioning. Whilst I mention these flaws, I still use it for my everyday fix, with no real intention of replacing it (at least until stops working). The lid does not fit securely, so that when you pour the last bit of coffee out of the unit, you spill coffee from the lid. Something about the design (presumably the keep-hot feature) means that when poured the coffee is just slightly too hot, leading to more bitterness in the brew than needed. There is no on-off switch - you have to unplug the unit from the power cable to turn it off. This will no doubt lead to wear and tear on the AC contacts over time (at least for daily use as in my case). You have to take care to make sure that the percolator stem is fitted correctly into its receptacle in the unit - otherwise you just end up with a kettle filled with almost-boiling water. You then have to cool the unit down with lots of cold water before attempting to re-brew. I've had this happen 4 times in the last 6 months with this unit - it never happened once with the more expensive Faberware in 8 years.

    Makes great coffee

    I purchased this perkulator for traveling. Have only used it twice. It makes a great cup of coffee but I suggest using two paper filters, one under the coffee and one on top so that you don't get grounds in your cup. It brews fast and very hot. Hopefully it will be easy to make coffee on the road as we travel for work and have to stay in hotels. I don't like the little "one cup at a time" coffee maker in the hotel rooms. My husband and I always argue about who gets their coffee first.

    I have returned to using percolators for the last 3 years. I bought them at estate sales and used them until they wore out. I didn't realize how weak my last one was until I plugged this pot in. When I poured my first cup, a rich brown brew flowed into my mug and it smelled heavenly. I added some caramel creamer and enjoyed a truly mellow java experience. If you like hot delicious coffee, buy this percolator. It's a great bargain.

    I like this product, makes great coffee, at first when i used it I only had regular coffee beans and no problems with that. I wanted to get peculator beans but since this is working better for me, spent less on the beans. I wanna say it takes about 15 min to make full 12 cups and it stays hot because it dont shut off unless u unplug it. The plug is like a regular PC plug, so if you need a linger cable you can get it cheap somewhere. Other than that I love it.

    Percolators are hard to find anymore with the everyday changing of technology. Ease of using the website and ordering was such a convenience and delight. Highly recommend the product and Best Buy. Order came in a timely fashion, however, when opened it was missing a part. I called Customer Service and they had me a new one shipped in no time. Overall, highly recommend the product and customer service for satisfaction and a awesome product

    exactly what I was looking for as a gift for an 80 year old woman, my mother, who is at a place in her life where it is difficult to learn to use new things. Very easy to use and makes a delicious coffee. I wll probably eventually buy one for myself as it seems to make a hotter cup of coffee than most coffeemakers including the keurig.

    Overall, I am happy I bought this percolator. The first cup is very good, but when I get my 2nd cup about 15 minutes later it isn't as good as the first. It starts to have a burnt taste. So now after I pour my first cup, I unplug it and the 2nd cup tastes better.

    I bought this because I remember growing up and making coffee for my parents on the weekend. The smell of coffee was throughout our house. I missed that with the newer coffee makers especially the "single serving" makers. I am very happy with this purchase.

    After trying several "Mr.Coffee" types of coffee makers and having them "die" within 6-12 months we decided to try and old fashioned percolater. I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my partner and we LOVE IT !!! Highly recommended !!!!

    I was tired of the weak cups of coffee continually being produced by my Keurig. This percolator makes a great cup of coffee-the only problem I have is the grounds that end up in the bottom of the pot.

    Terrible Product

    This percolator is a terrible product. Do not waste your money. It worked twice. After that, it only heated the water. I didn't buy the warranty so I payed over 40 dollars for 24 oz. of coffee.

    I love the taste of percolator coffee. This pot makes great coffee really fast, but no matter how many cups I make, I get grounds in the coffee.

    It works fine. I just don’t like the fact that you can’t see how many cups of water you poured in.
