CONS: Many of the new percolator pots have strainer baskets that are really flimsy in design, including both the Coleman and the GSI brand. The real problem is the upright stem, it tilts over if you know what I mean. You can bend it back, but I worry it will break over time. If they improved the basket assembly with a heavier grade aluminum like they used to make, or a stainless steel basket, I think it would solve the problem. I replaced the upright stem and basket in my enamel pot with a sturdy one from a old pot I found at a yard sale. Next issue, on models with the glass dome, some folks can break them. They sell replacements in 2 sizes at Amazon.com for less than a pack of paper filters and they work fine. I wish it had the additional bail handle, it would make pouring easier.
TIPS: Wet the inside of the basket before you put grounds in, to help prevent grounds from going through the holes. Use a medium ground blend.Read more ›
I also considered a French press style coffee maker, but decided on the percolator since a French press would require an additional pot in which to heat the water. The percolator apparatus can be easily removed from this coffee maker and used to heat water for tea, hot cocoa, ramen, dish water, etc... I chose this particular percolator because the red speckled enamelware matches the dish set I also purchased. It is also just the right size for us as it makes four standard coffee mug sized cups, which is just right for the two of us.
Fit and finish are excellent, as was the packaging. Just took it out of the box, washed it, and added it to the camping gear last weekend. Used it Sunday morning and had the best tasting coffee I have had in years. Granted, part of it could have been the location, but I was still able to drink it with only a small amount of powdered creamer and no sweetener, which is unheard of for me. The coffee used was some cheapo vacuum packed half-caff, Folgers or Maxwell House or the like.
No gripes or complaints, but if you haven't used a percolator before be aware that the basket for the grounds is not really a filter. i.e. you will get grounds into your coffee if you don't use separate disc-style filters. It's not bad enough for me to worry about it as the amount of grounds that spilled through was very minimal; just something to be aware of if you are picky about such things.
Bottom line, this is a very good coffee pot with excellent fit and finish, you won't be disappointed.
Would not purchase from GSI Outdoors in the future.
