What type of coffee filter do I use and where can I purchase it?

What type of coffee filter do I use and where can I purchase it?
Asked by: LadyDi
I don't know the coding on the filter, but it is the steel metal cup kind. This one however has super fine and tiny holes for the water to go through. They are the size of a pen or pencil dot. If you have used a similar percolator in the past, your old cup may fit this one.

12-Cup Percolator is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes great coffee Read the manual! That way you can make sure to get a grind that works with a percolator. It is a larger grind than what is used for drip coffee makers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product....what we didn't like with other types is the plastic taste...this percolator ... Love this product....what we didn't like with other types is the plastic taste...this percolator provides a wonderful fresh taste. We had one 10 years ago...we only needed the small glass top, but decided to buy the entire coffee maker, wish you would sell replacement parts as well. I would buy this coffee make over any other every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Percs A Good Pot Of Coffee This is by far one of the better percolators I have owned. Most are alike, but what makes this stand out to me is the 3 year warranty. That was the deciding factor. No more 18 months and done coffee pots! So far the pots percs nicely. Easy set up and design. I enjoy that the cord is a little longer than most pots. The only thing I don't like is that it is a true 12 cup pot. There is no additional space. You have to nearly fill it to the top to get the 12 cups in. The problem is that if you buy canned coffee (not ground yourself), it can be too fine and slip through the filter and into the pot/cup. I think it is the way the spouts is angled when pouring. It comes from the middle. This is great for any other cup than the first or last. Otherwise, you will get a few tiny remnants of grounds. For me, it is not a big deal, but I know if I am serving guests they won't be getting the first or last cup straight from the pot. That actually brings me to another feature I like. The design is such, that if you unplug the pot it can be used as a serving pot too. The base is raised a little bit so that it won't burn your table or counter tops with heat spots. It won't keep the coffee hot for any great length of time if you disconnect it, but if you know you are going to serve it immediately, that is a nice feature. As for the percolators time, it takes about 10 minutes from a full perc and it is delicious! Everything about this pot is pretty good....and affordable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coffee stays hot longer without burning This percolator makes much better coffee than conventional auto drip units. As the coffee brews it's recycled back over the grounds for a much richer flavor. It makes a restaurant quality brew.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the coffee Perculated coffee instead of water being rushed through the grounds. Excellent!
