This is our second COPCO percolater. Our old one worked fine, but the new one isn't worth having. The holes in the basket are too small and the coffee takes 15+ minutes to drip by which time it is cold. I played with it--leaving out the Melitta filters I bought with it first--then pouring out the coffee after removing the liquid-filled basket, etc. I'd rather have a new basket, but COPCO doesn't exist and the parent company, Wilton, doesn't do replacement parts. Now I've had it over 30 days and can't return it for a refund or replacement. To make matters worse, Amazon doesn't have a feature to even ask the seller for the part. DON'T BUY THIS--YOU'LL LOSE YOUR $30!
