Cuisinart brings its coffee-making expertise to the 12-Cup model of their classic stainless steel percolator. Piping hot water percolates through the grounds, and pulses up into the glass knob on top to create the familiar "perk-perk" sound that coffee lovers wait to hear. A detachable cord and stay-cool bottom lets this percolator go anywhere to serve, and it only needs to be plugged in to keep it hot.
Top Customer Reviews
Everything old is new again! After years of fighting with fancy instant coffee makers, I bought a percolator just like my parents had. The low tech means no pipes to clean, no timer, just plug it in and you have a pot of wonderful coffee in 12 minutes. Rinse it out and it's done. And it takes up half the room of our previous grind and brew instant. Plus it's a beautiful stainless, rather than half plastic. Love it.
Update: I contacted Cuisinart customer service and was told I have to pay to ship the pot back and pay an additional $10 to ship the new pot. Thanks but no thanks. I will never, under any circumstances, purchase another Cuisinart product.
The problem is the percolating cycle shuts off once the coffee hits a certain temp, and this is always before it has percolated enough to extract any kind of body/flavor. So you have very dilute coffee. There's no way to get it to restart and percolate more, or to get it to extract more before shutting off. I tried everything...different amounts of grounds, different amounts of water, preground coffee, homeground beans, hot water, water with ice cubes. The only way to make the coffee stronger is cooling it all the way down, replacing fresh grounds in it and re-percolating the coffee a second time.
And for anyone new to percolators, they aren't a great choice for making daily coffee imo. Every use means rinsing and cleaning up grounds reassembling, etc. And in this one's case you don't have any control over the coffee you're getting.
