I bought this pot for our new and much smaller motorhome. Space will be at a premium, but with this pot, we will not be compromising quality. When it arrived, I put it to the test and it was just as the instructions stated, about one minute per cup to cook. Granted it is a four cup perk, but it is so fast. The stainless steel is very nice, inside and out. It is truly as great coffee pot and yes, the coffee was not overdone because it sat and perked longer than necessary. If you need a classy little pot, this one's for you. It certainly fits out needs.
I had this coffee pot for over 20 years. By mistake I left it on overnight and the heater died. Glad that I found it through Overstock as most stores do not carry this pot. It is quick, reliable and keeps your coffee hot. One of the best coffee pots I have ever owned.
I bought this percolator for my son who drinks hot tea alot. I thought it would be faster than a heating water in a kettle or in the microwave. Well, he gave it great reviews! He puts the tea bags in the basket, adds water, plugs it up and within 3-4 miniutes he has a cup of tea...strong tea...with 2 tea bags. One tea bag would probably do. It's smaller than I thought but it will still brew 3 or 4 cups of tea or coffee. It turned out to be a great gift.
