Customer Reviews

Coffee tastes so much better percolated than using a drip maker.

Love the smell in the morning, reminds me of my mother percolating the coffee when I was a child.

Perked coffee is old school, to be sure, but a well-made cup of percolated brew is robust and satisfying in a way that drip coffee isn't. Not only does the percolation process provide a deeper and fuller mouth, I think, but a percolator, bubbling away, is a lovely sight and sound.
If you don't like perked coffee, don't bother with any percolator. But if you are interested in something other than drip brew, consider this Farberware percolator. I'm not one to ooh and ahh over design, but this is a darned handsome piece of kitchen equipment. Take a look and the large picture and I will spare you the adjectives. :)
The stainless steel construction makes it sturdier and heftier than thin-metal percolators you might buy in the camping gear section of a chain store. While the name "Yosemite" evokes coffee bubbling over a campfire, I'd probably not use this on a wood fire to avoid blackening. I mean, this thing really is shiny and pretty. But as heavy-duty as it is, perhaps it would clean up well.
It's a capacious pot, making eight cups of coffee. The interior basket and rod are well made, fitting tightly together and clamping in place with the lock-down lid. It makes more coffee than my old electric percolator, but it does take up a burner on the stove-top.
Lastly, should you buy this unit, remember: Perked coffe may be good, but it's a danged sight hotter than drip brew. Of course, you'll probably figure that out for yourself...

I have never had a percolator before I bought this Farberware percolator. I have always had drip coffee makers, which were ok, but expensive and I was trying to get away from plastic in the kitchen. I read all the reviews here and decided at this price I couldn't really go wrong and I was right. The Yosemite percolator makes a very smooth cup of coffee.
A few things I have learned:
Coarser ground coffee leaves less residue in the pot.
I use a regular coffee filter and just poke a hole through the middle to stop any grounds from getting into the coffee.
I turn my burner on high until it starts percolating, then down to med-low for approximately 7 minutes.
I make sure my handle is not on top of the burner, but rather, just over the edge and it has never gotten hot. I have a smooth top range.
After the coffee is done brewing, I pour it into a stainless steel thermos to drink throughout the day.
I hand wash my percolator and have had no discoloration or scratching to the surface.
You really can't go wrong with this purchase and it is really pretty sitting on the stove, too. I bought another one for camping.

During Hurricane Isabel I had no electricity and was able to make great coffee on my gas stove with this percolator. I use it daily now.

I found a replacement for the plastic top at Fantes.com -- part #11380, "Small Replacement Percolator Glass Top" for $1.99.

If you wash it in the dishwasher, don't use the "heated dry" option as it will leave permanent water stains. Also, I found that this coffee is reheatable [once] and still tastes good, not muddy.

Bought this percolator because it doesn't require paper filters--and out of nostalgia. In my mom's kitchen back in the 60's, there was always a pot of coffee brewing in her electric percolator. The smell of the coffee was heavenly. Read reviews on this page about this percolator and people repeatedly complained of the plastic top melting and stripping and such, so I ordered a glass top at the same time I bought the pot--which works great.

After using the percolator for about a month, I have concluded that people are cranking up the heat to speed up the water heating process, and overheating it. Have found that converting from my superfast gigantic Bunn coffeemaker back to this old method, I have had to slow down and accomodate the extra time it takes to heat the brew. Figured that the extra 20+ minutes it takes is no big deal and I work it into the routine in the morning as I do other things. This percolator is from another era--a slower-paced time, and if it is used with care, it will last for years. One other thing--I always set a timer when I put the coffee on, as I tend to get sidetracked.

Oh--and the coffee tastes great!

Hi. I leave very few reviews due primarily to laziness and skepticism (do folks really take these to heart, given the wide range of griping?). But, I have found myself shopping for a number of items online lately, and relying on reviews, so here is my paying it forward. And no, I do not work for any coffee company.

I am a bit of a stovetop percolator fanatic. Simply put, nothing beats percolator coffee. Drips aren't hot enough, take up crazy amounts of counter space, and the coffee is subpar. French presses produce gritty coffee and don't keep heat, and electric percolators have gone down the tube in quality since grandma bought hers (I have one from the 60s that I bought on ebay, and after using daily, it STILL outperforms my previous standard, the 2008 Farberware electric percolator).

That said, I have tested a bunch of stovetop percolators for various uses, like camping, power outages, and general "getting off the grid" living. I have had several Colemans, the Italian-style caffeteria, the french press, a few electric percs, and this Farberware. Trust, this is a fantastic product. But how can one tell?

The things to look for in stovetop percolators are:

1. Quality of the construction. Stainless steel is best. Looks for a sturdy build with a nice balance of weight, a large enough size for your needs, and [very important!] the placement of the handle. It should be easy to clutch, be far enough to NOT be above the heat source, and sturdy enough to handle the weight of a full pot. Screwed on means it can easily be tightened, which is good, and the material of this percolator stays cool and has a nice, tactile grip.

2. Solid/durable interior parts (stem, basket). This was a major downer for the Colemans.
