We never really considered a coffee urn until I got dragged to a comic con-type convention last year. Sure, we entertain and pull out the stovetop percolator a lot, but an urn? The Hamilton Beach Commercial 60 Cup Stainless Steel Coffee Urn proved that urns weren’t just for church kitchens, stuffy businesses and bored rich women. Just goes to show you’re never too old to learn. The line into the place was almost around the block, so some co-dressers (or cross-dressers, or whatever read more..
A few percolators in the marketplace now bridge the gap between the stovetop and the campfire in terms of style and function. The Coleman 12 Cup Coffee Percolator is one of them. How is it made up? For the listed price, one might think the Coleman 12 Cup Coffee Percolator is made of aluminium or a cheaper alloy. Thankfully it’s not since aluminium causes all sorts of health risks, including Alzheimer's. At least Coleman got that right when they used heavy grade steel as the primary read more..
Cuisinart is a good name for a lot of different products, but I honestly never considered the brand for coffee. Beggars can’t be choosers, though, and when the caffeine attack happens it’s time to get percolating. When the choice is between the Cuisinart PRC-12 Classic 12-Cup Stainless-Steel Percolator we were sent for review purposes and the instant coffee alternative, there really wasn't much arm twisting needed to get testing. Cuisinart has a good brand name in appliances so we read more..
Initially, I was not going to review the Presto 02822 6-Cup Stainless-Steel Coffee Percolator because unfortunately I don’t get sent models to test and I didn’t know of anyone who owned one. Thankfully, through a friend of a friend we managed to track one down, unused and still in its packaging. Why anyone would leave a percolator sitting idle is beyond me Our kind benefactor let us take it home to try out. Which we here at Percolator Coffee Pot are really grateful. What Do You Get read more..
As I've said before, there’s nothing like leaving the city for two free weeks of camping, only to realize once you've set up the tent that you forgot the coffee pot. Especially when three other couples are involved and they all know you agreed to bring it. So when this happened to us last summer, the wife and I made the mutual decision to fund the group’s coffee habit by driving ten miles each morning into the city limits for Starbuck’s. That was, of course, until a brilliant read more..
The Farberware FCP240 Stainless Percolator is an adorable, tiny machine that works wonders for brewing great tasting coffee. If you’re familiar at all with the brand name, you already know it stands for quality. But you might be unaware of how that translates to perked coffee. I’m a big perked coffee buff. We have two other machines at home; one daily and a travel pot. But I’m considering getting this one now, too. Why? Because it makes great coffee for smaller purposes. The read more..
I think the Stansport Black Granite 12 Cup Percolator Coffee Pot is a great mid-range percolator for the budding or experienced outdoorsman. To let you know why I think this is the case I will have to relate to you a little of my personal experience. A few years ago I started yearning to relive my boyhood days of camping outdoors again. There’s something about the great outdoors: the fresh air and the smell of the forest that is almost primal that you can’t replicate in modern read more..
The Hamilton Beach Stainless Steel Percolator is a great device for the cost. While higher priced than several smaller models, it makes up for it by delivering delicious, hot percolated coffee. Why We Like It The mostly stainless steel pot is large enough for family use, and the fitted top allows for easy transport without worrying about spillage concerns. While the base of the pot is plastic, the remainder is stainless steel which helps insulate the beverage. There’s no glass read more..
There is nothing like real, percolated coffee; the richness, the color, the strength. And at its current price point, the One All PK008 is a real steal. The style is similar to older model stovetop percolators, so it’s a nice retro addition to any kitchen without going too far. It only weighs two pounds and comes with a cute metal disc to heat up on a coil burner stove top, so be sure to take that out of the pot before brewing. It shouldn't affect the brewing cycle, but it might cause some read more..
