I love "perked" coffee, it is far superior to drip-type coffee. Much more flavorful and coffee remains piping hot in the stainless steel pot. Remove the basket and stem, and any leftover coffee can be easily reheated.
Consider purchasing the extended warranty. Previous models performed great for several years. My last three percolators have each lasted on average 13 months. (Keep original packaging and receipt).

It's so nice to have HOT, perked coffee again! My old Farberware percolator stopped heating up after working beautifully for 15+ years. Reviews of current Farberware percolators are not so good as the old ones, so I found this Presto, with nearly all great reviews. The single only thing I don't care for is the spout - if you move to pour the coffee too fast, it spills right over the rim of the cup and onto your hand or the counter. But hot, strong coffee - the best and only way to start a day! Takes only a few minutes. And it stays hot without getting bitter, for 2-3 hours.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jim2015 great coffee maker
Makes coffee in just a few minutes. Parts all fit together well. For a modern device this is much
better than most other coffee makers on the shelf today.

No complaint about the product. However, the percolator was to be a surprise Christmas gift for a family member. That person was told a package would be arriving from Home Depot and not to open it until Christmas. It was not shipped in an outer box. I wrote to Customer Service. Wayne F's reply, "....In order to keep our shipping costs as low as possible, we use as little packaging as possible. If the manufacturer's packaging is sturdy enough to ship the item, we do not add to the weight....." I think this information should be on Home Depot's home page during the Christmas season.

This makes a great cup of coffee. I want my coffee HOT, and indeed it is! The one recommendation I have is to "season" the pot before you actually drink the coffee. Brew a very strong pot of coffee and leave it sit for a day, unplugged of course:-) It seems the more you use it, the better the coffee.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cindy This is much better than a auto-drip coffee maker!
Great percolator. Makes great coffee. I'm using standard filters from my old drip-coffee maker, modified with a hole--no need to purchase special ones for percolators. It takes up less space than the bulky drip-machines. Expecting it last a heck of lot longer too.

How simple can you get? …load the basket with coffee, fill the pot, assemble and plug in. The finest things in life tend to be the most simple and this Presto percolator supports this view. It is not submersible so washing is not so simple as piling into the dishwasher, but is worth the inconvenience to taste such coffee!!! …and NO PLASTIC!!! If I could do anything to make it more to my liking it would be to add a timer so that I could wake up to that aroma. Even so, it is quick and ready by the time I get the cats fed.
