I purchased this urn for a party I was hosting a few weeks ago. I was totaling surprised at the quality for the price I paid . It is very elegant looking and could be used for any type of function, either casual or formal. I don't like ordering on line because sometimes the item isn't want it looks like, but this wasn't the case.
I had a MirroMatic urn before this Farberware; I definitely got the burned odor/flavor in that one. I think it had to burn its element more and hotter because the walls of the urn were so thin and lost heat very quickly. This Farberware is much more substantial. Stand it next to a less expensive urn and you will see why it costs more. With this item, you indeed get what you pay for!
I have the FSU 236 urn, which has been used only at family gatherings. When last used, it switched to the warming mode prematurely so all we had was an urn full of tepid dark water. Things break, no big deal.
Well, it is a big deal because a replacement thermostat is not available for this unit. I could not get a hit when I googled the part number stamped on the thermostat and Farberware/Applica/Salton indicated it is not a "consumer replaceable item." Odd, since you can get a thermostat, heating element, warming element, and fuse link for older Farberware urns.
Fine customer no service, at least direct me to a repair shop that would have the part and can fix the urn. Nope.
Then please look in your UL file and tell me the approved thermostats. Nope, that information is "not available and cannot be supplied."
I could understand if this model was discontinued, but it is currently being sold new. No more Farberware for me!
On the bright side, at least I have a lovely pot to ... never mind.
My second urn. One for coffee, one for hot water for tea/hot chocolate. They look beautiful on my buffet. Easy to clean, heat up quickly and make great coffee.
