Top Customer Reviews
It does take a bit longer to brew the coffee in this percolator, but it is well worth the time. I don't really think you will mind, not after you taste the end result.
I did read the reviews about this coffee pot before I bought it. I honestly did buy the coffee pot because of the review from the woman who was afraid to use the "plastic" pot. Since I had a plastic pot before, that brewed wonderful coffee, I knew that I had to buy it. I have been a bit more than disappointed lately with the taste of the coffee my coffee maker makes, I needed a change. This is a wonderful change, and if you love your coffee, you will love this little pot, and the taste or real brewed coffee again.
Makes great coffee. When first using, be careful when taking off the cap. All the parts except for the heating element are plastic. Has a coffee ready light. No switches which is what I wanted. This is not a electric kettle but a percolator.
The price is lower than other percolators but just as good or safe. To keep the percolator clean use a filter so the grains can be thrown out without a mess.
Alas, cosmetically the particular plastic choice cheapens the appearance of this device, and the overall construction does not exactly scream quality. Also, no lid is provided for the brew basket, although I can't tell any difference and it's nice not to have to keep up with this extra piece. The pot top seems to be designed to fit tightly against the basket. There will be some grounds in the bottom of the pot when you get down to the last half a cup or so of coffee. All percolators that I've used share this characteristic. Minimize this by using a larger grind of coffee, wetting the basket before filling, tamping the basket against a hard surface and wiping the loosened grounds from the bottom of the basket, and/or using round filter discs made for percolators. If you are very keen nosed, you may detect a bit of plastic smell when first using. Use a little baking soda to clean and run a couple of water only cycles to help. I can detect no effect on taste at all.
Overall, as to function, great coffee - one of the best coffee makers I've used!
