Thus far, very well pleased with performance of new coffee percolator. I use it 4 or 5 times weekly. Hoping this one will last about five years. Perks in pretty short period of time and remains hot for as long as we need it to, as we drink coffee for several hours into the day.
This percolator has exceeded my expectations. It is an expensive item, but it is worth it. I discovered the following: coffee grounds should be ground very coarse. Also, I use 2 Melina disc filters per pot. This combination leaves every cup 100% free of any loose grounds.
