Kid Boy Galaxy Robot Alien Letter Food Casual Set Review
Raymond L. Mccaulley "Ruthann McCaulley": This is the fourth (or maybe the fifth) Farberware pot we've owned. I would be lost w/o it. Our first two (or maybe it was three, over 40 years can't remember for sure) were 8 cup but then we discovered the 12 cup and have been using it ever since (at least 16+ years). When we have company for dinner the 12 cup is just right while the 8 cup would have been too small. (I use mugs so each serving is really more like 1 1/2 "cups").The pot is easy to clean and makes great coffee. what I like best is that the coffee is HOT - not lukewarm like so many of the drip pots. It also keeps the coffee HOT if you are still working on b'fast and the coffee has finished about 5 minutes before you're ready. Again, this is important to me. I generally make 8 cups every morning, but the pot works just as well when my husband makes 4 cups. (Remember, we use mugs, so this is just right for us.)The last pot we had was about 16 years old (we can't remember exactly - but that's a good guess) so hoping this one lasts as long.These pots are getting harder and harder to find, thank heavens for Amazon!!!!
R. Chirak: I bought this item a few years ago to replace a cheapo plastic coffeemaker that made awful tasting coffee when its carafe finally cracked. I chose this style of coffeemaker not because I'm a coffee snob (I would be if I wasn't so cheap!) but because my parents have a similar design that's lasted them about thirty years and counting, and I concluded this was the most practical choice. No thin glass carafes that can chip, crack or break, no flimsy, fliddly plastic parts (that make you wonder what kind of nasty chemicals are leaching out of them into your hot, acidic coffee every day), no paper filters to buy again and again (that make you wonder whether you should be paying more for unbleached organic filters because again, are scary things leaching into your hot, acidic coffee?). It hasn't disappointed. It makes great coffee and I anticipate it lasting for years. Clean-up is also very easy with this; before I had a dishwasher I had the hardest time cleaning out all the grooves in the plastic cup that held the grounds in my old coffeemaker. No such problem with this one!
Rebecca B. Jones: This item was requested by my daughter. I was given a small percolator like this a couple of years ago and she wanted one like it. I asked her how it had worked for her, and her comment was that a few of the grounds were left in the coffee after perking. I've noticed the same thing with mine. Do they make filters for this pot? Otherwise, it works very well and suits our purpose.
Robert Caputo "Bob": Faberware makes the best percolators. This small unit is perfect for 2-6 cups and makes the same quality cup of coffee as thier 50 cup units. Perculated coffee is much better tasting than coffe from the more popular drip coffee makers and is just as fast. It also looks cool on the kitchen counter!
Roger: Bought this a year ago to replace my junky dirty plastic coffee maker(s).I use 4-cup unbleached coffee filters I purchased from the local store or on Amazon.com, fold them in half and cut about 3/8" around the perimeter. Hence, cutting off 3/8" around the outer perimeter of the half-moon shaped filter after folding in half. Then, while still folded in half, I snip a 1/4" centre notch. Unfold and slip the filter into the metal bin. A one minute task, but tirelessly performed as the flat circular paper filters I purchased from Amazon.com do not filter the grounds as well.Other then this, the unit is easily cleaned with a simple rinsing, unlike the plastic coffee makers with hidden grime. The unit also makes coffee well. I usually unplug the unit after brewing, heating half cups of milk in the microwave in order to reheat the cold added coffee.I have no doubts this unit will easily last a decade or more, and still look new!
