Summary: Worked great for me. I don't use filters with it and it works great. If there are any coffee grounds they stay at the bottom and I just don't use the last little bit of coffee. Makes a great cup of coffee with no fuss. It makes a little noise when it starts, but I don't find it terribly loud. Once it gets going it is just a percolator sound, which I kind of like. I really like mine.
Summary: My electric percolator of 20+ years died this year, and I decided to try this brand because it had the glass top and the content viewer. I like watching coffee perk, when it is an option, and it would be nice to know how many cups were remaining in the pot. The store did not carry these in-house, and it had to be ordered online ... otherwise I probably wouldn't have bought it in the first place. My first impression (out of the box) was that it was rather flimsy.
Summary: This coffeemaker is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a coffeemaker that used the cone type filters, that was simple to use. As an added bonus the color matched the color that my wife wanted in her kitchen. I've had the coffeemaker less than a week but it works like one I had been given when I began ordering coffee online. Bottom line, the coffee tastes great!
Summary: With almost universal use of filter coffeemakers, it is difficult to find a percolator on store shelves. For us perked coffee fans, this is a great product, built to the highest standards - a Rolex among coffeemakers.
Summary: I had a Presto percolator before this one and when it finally wouldn't get hot enough to brew good coffee after 4 yrs, I thought I would try this pot which got great reviews. It's much quieter when brewing than the Presto. No loud pops or squeals. I prefer the brushed steel exterior of this pot. It also has a green light to signal when brewing is done although with the clear plastic top you can see that for yourself. I love the clear waterline markings inside the pot.
Summary: We've only used our HB percolator for 3 weeks but are pleased so far. Its contemporary look is sleek and the coffee is superb. My husband likes the way it pours, clean with no drips. The coffee stays hot for some time unlike many coffee makers we have owned. Since Wal-Mart has such a reasonable price, we opted for the 2-year warranty upgrade.
