Summary: We were tired of the drip and thought we would try the perculator. The coffee stays hot, but you will find more grounds in your coffee than filtered drip systems, but it doesn't bother us. Very reliable, but not the capacity we were expecting. You get about 5 to 6 cups using normal coffee mugs. Kind of expensive. Seems very durable since it is a simple and proven design. Cordless is misleading since you must plug in the base.
Summary: My husband and I were recalling the days when our mothers used to make perc coffee on the stove so decided to buy this. Overall we have been very happy with it - it is very easy to use and easy to clean and we particularly like the green light that turns on to let you know it is ready. Our only complaint is that because the pot is not insulated at all the coffee does not stay hot and it specifically tells you to remove it from the base once it is done.
Summary: I have never spent so much on a percolator. but I loved perked coffee, so did it anyway. I LOVED this pot!!!!!! In less than a year of ownership, however, the base died, which meant that the pot was unusable. I contacted the company's website (DualIt), and explained my situation, and never heard one word back. Not one.
Summary: I read all the review and thought that since this one was made in England, it had to be better. NOT TRUE ... First, it keeps coffee almost at a boil ... so as soon as coffee was done, I upluged it. Second, there were always grinds in the coffee. Third, the pot started leaking from the base after two weeks of use. Totally a bad unit.
Summary: I have owned this pot for at least 4 years, and hands down it makes the best coffee Iv'e ever had. My husband and I cannot even drink drip coffee anymore, because the taste is so watery and bland, and sour compared to this pots wonderful coffee.
Summary: This percolator makes a great pot of coffee. Trouble is, it doesn't stop boiling the coffee after it finishes percolating. Its warm cycle is too robust - makes me think the one I bought is defective or just not completely compatible with 110 current.
