It's a thick solid stainless inside and out, a feature that I found very difficult to find any documentation on anywhere on the web. Since this feature was so important to me (don't want plastic or aluminum in my cookware for health reasons) I decided to share my review and several photos of my new little friend.
I found one oddity about this product and that would be the unusual design of the spout. It's a piece of metal wrapped around a high-set hole in the side of the pot rather than the typical funnel shaped spout which is attached at the bottom. This feature doesn't take away from the brewing capabilities of the percolator, but it makes it difficult to get the last few drops of coffee (or water) out of the pot as the top rim is curled in such a manner as it will not allow any small amount of fluids to leave the pot through the top opening.
The recommended instructions say to perk the coffee 5-7 minutes after it begins to boil. I found I like mine perked 10 minutes. The tip to wet the basket before adding coffee grounds really works--no need for filters. Just don't forget to put the spreader/lid back on before the lid, else you'll have coffee grounds all over and in your coffee. If this does happen the coffee will still taste good, just pour it through a strainer.
One other point, is that once finished perking, and it's removed from the heat, it will still take a few minutes for the remainder of the coffee to drain from the basket. If I'm in a hurry, I just use a potholder to lift the basket assembly out and pour a cup and put the assembly back to allow it to finish draining. This in no way changes the flavor of the coffee in the pot as it might in a drip maker that hasn't finished.
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 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.
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.
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!
