Summary: Hamilton Beach has been a great product for us. This is a replacement for our old one it was very reliable. This pot seems to be just as good. Would tell anyone who want a good percolator this is it!
Summary: There is nothing better than waking up fresh perked coffee smell. I prefer perked over drip any ole day. My Grandmother had the Percolator going all day long. I've been drinking coffee since I was a small girl and there is a difference in perked and drip! This does the job very well. The lite at the bottom comes on when brewing is complete. I suggest that you remove the basket as soon as it is complete because it will reperk and will become stronger with each reperk.
Summary: I am a sipper. A traditional coffee pot that sits on my counter on warm for two hours would not work for me. This post will keep the coffee hot (nicely hot) for the whole day. If it gets too low on liquid it automatically shuts off. I also like the fact that my coffee is hotter than traditional coffee pots. Another great perk is that I don't have to use as many grounds, so it saves me a bit of money on the coffee itself.
