This percolator make the best coffee, flavorful and nice and hot when its done. After you have used one of these percolators, you will never want to go back to drip brewed again! I had the 4 cup Faberware percolator before this purchase and it lasted about 2 years. It probably would have lasted a lot longer if I had (unfortunately many times) not left it plugged in all day. This pot makes coffee just as good but the reason I only gave this a good rating is because the water lines increments are hard to see inside the pot when you are filling it up. I would buy the 4 cup pot again if it was available on Overstock but it wasn't. This is a good substitution. Definetely thumbs up on this pot!

How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very acurrate
We've been using percolators for years, and this one is as good/better than others we've tried from GE and Cuisinart. Its fast, and makes good, hot coffee.
My two complaints
1) there is no indication the machine is on or that coffee is done (except loud brewing noise stops)
2) It seems the parts may rust. I'm keeping an eye on it, and will return w/in ext warranty if necessary.
I bought this percolator to replace a lovely, high quality Hamilton Beach percolator that had served us well for several years. I've had great luck with Overstock purchases, and the reviews on this Farberware pot were very positive. Frankly, we haven't made coffee in our new coffeepot yet, but I hope the coffee is great.......because this is one chintzy, thin, lightweight, non-shiny, poorly made stainless coffeepot! Lightweight construction and materials, unattractive pouring spout, shoddy construction -- the whole thing feels like it might come apart on first use. As a matter of fact, my husband had to scour the house for a tool that would fit inside the pot to screw the handle back on, because it had come loose in shipping. We're gonna try it, because we hate the trouble and expense of returns. But we're not too hopeful. Doesn't look good at all.
Having just remodeled my kitchen in a 1940's retro/vintage, I got rid of the plastic Mister C maker and got this beauty. I absolutely love it. It makes great coffee in a wink, doesn't take up the space of my old appliance, and one of the best things is that it doesn't spill when I pour like the old carafe did. It fits in perfectly on the countertop, and it's easy to clean. No drips, no splashes. I highly recommend this product.
I have used this type of percolater, for the past 20+ years, and I like this type of
coffee pot. I will admit, I did shop around, the manufacter was higher, and some of
the department stores were higher in price also. My first notice, was that the item
would be delivered on the 27th, did not happen, I called Overstock, and was talking
with some young woman, and she was quick with the excuse, about the time frame, and I received a call the next day, and some young man was very helpful, and he
informed me, that he was sorry for my problem and if I still wanted theitem, he would
next day it to me, and I received it on Wednesday, the 3rd of July. I m sorry I don;t remember his name, but he was very good at his job, you don't find this in customer service any more, Thank you Bob Patrick

Does it have an automatic shut off or do I need to remember to unplug it?os4rfk on Mar 29, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your interest in the Farberware FCP412 12-cup Stainless Steel Automatic Coffee Percolator. The manufacturer has an automatic switch built in to the coffee pot to go from hot to warm after a timed amount of non-use but there does not seem to be an automatic shut down on it so a good old manual unplug or shut off is still necessary. We hope this was helpful. Thank you for your business and have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 1, 2013
