Love the coffeepot
I recommend this coffee pot except for one problem. The last cup in the pot is always filled with grounds. I called and was told not to use a filter and it improved but still get them. I was also told to change the coffee grounds; that they may be too fine. I have used this ground in other percolators and it was fine. Also, they don't make electric percolator ground anymore in the brand I use

I wanted hot coffee and more flavor from the bean
Donald S on Aug 17, 2016
I'm tired of messing with and the space taken up with my kuerig and coffee makers. I'm an avid coffee drinker and one cup at a time is not working for me. it's great for one cup going out the door but not for the rest of the day. I'm going old school and what better to do that with than a brand that delivers every time.

I was looking for percolator; retro design; Cuisinart brand;
Elizabeth S on Apr 9, 2016
I remember how good percolated coffee was.
Louise D on Apr 4, 2016
I have used Farberware percolators for many years -however the quality has deteriorated. The heating element does not last.
Deirdre S on Mar 26, 2016
UNCLE ASKED FOR IT. HAS ENJOYED USING MINE; VERY EASY TO USE.
LAURA C on Mar 9, 2016

THERE IS ON BETTER OR FULLER FLAVOR COFFEE THAN PURCULATED COFFEE. PLEASE KEEP MAKING THIS OLD FASHIONED STYLE OF COFFEE MAKING.

good brand and price
Richard M on Jan 27, 2016
i like electric percolators and want to keep the coffee hot. i think this pot will fill the bill and the price is right
BETTY M on Jan 13, 2016
I checked the reviews and all reviews on many sights there were only two unhappy people. This is good product. Brewed coffee is the most flavorful. Had this kind a long time ago, tired of the k cups makers.
nancy s on Jan 7, 2016
I like percolators and wanted to try a new one since the one I have used for years loses it's heat element too soon. Also this one had a nice mark-down.
Ruth B on Jan 4, 2016
Listed as the second best out of seven researched.

Gail M on Nov 26, 2015
Easy and a great size for countertop or marble top bedroom table! Place all together at night, plug it in, in the morning!
Cherry S on Nov 21, 2015
cuz i love my mom, and this item was just what she wanted for her birthday and less expensive than ordering from sears, for the quality of merchandise. and my mom loves sur la table!
tara m on Sep 11, 2015
my husband loves a coffee percolator
Linda S on Sep 10, 2015
I love the taste of percolated coffee!
Scott L on Jul 19, 2015
I love the smell and taste of percolated coffee. When we rent a vacation home, we take our coffee maker with us-the quick drip makers that are usually in the rental homes does not do the trick.
Kathleen D on Jul 17, 2015
I choose this coffee maker because of its classic look as well as it size. I do not like the look of the large coffee makers. I also like the reusable filter and the fact that you can remove the plug and take it to the table for dinner guests. I can't wait to receive it.
Kelso H on Jun 30, 2015
replacement of an older one than no longer works. Love this product!
Michael T on Jun 23, 2015
bought as a gift for someone's bridal shower
yvonne d on Jun 22, 2015
tired of drip coffee makers.
Judy W on Jun 9, 2015
We like perked coffee and have gone through 3 Faberware. They do not last long at all. We are going to try this and hope for the best.
Paul H on May 21, 2015
I want to brew coffee the old fashioned way. I don't like K-cups.
Nebat S on May 14, 2015
Percolator coffee remains my favorite! Cuisinart has a good reputation so I am trying this pot.
Jane A on May 10, 2015
Have been using Farberware percolator for years and had to replace twice. Looking for better product.
ANGELA N on Apr 5, 2015
My husband and I wanted to go back to the old fashioned way to make coffee.
Terri P on Jan 3, 2015
Style and brand name
Sharon H on Jan 3, 2015
Hopefully it is electric and I like perked coffee.
Marie E. D on Dec 3, 2014
Our previous brand didn't last a year, so I thought I would give this brand a try.
Linda M on Dec 2, 2014
I purchased this item because I couldn't find a replacement electric french press and this was the next best thing.
KASI R on Aug 22, 2014
needed a larger coffee maker and don't want to have the disposal coffee Kureig, etc 1cup units any more

Linda G on Apr 25, 2016
Is it a gold filter basket?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, it's stainless steel.
How many watts does this pot draw?
Coffee addict on Jul 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This percolator is 1100 watts.
Does it stop perking automatically when coffee is ready?
A shopper on Jul 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it stops perking but it stays on and stays hot. It does not make a special sound or anything, it just stops perking so I guess it's done!
This looks very appealing, one of the main reasons I want this to get away from the unknown health risks of plastic chemicals leaching into my coffee. However I wonder what the clear piece at the top is made of?
scott k on Sep 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can purchase a glass percolator top if you feel the need to replace it. Amazon has glass tops
do you use ground coffee beans like you would for a french press or do you use special percolator grind coffee or something like that?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I use regular coffee beans. I buy whole beans from my local coffee shop, grind them myself.
With this pot, I have found you must look at the markings for number of cups in the silver ground coffee holder and fill accordingly. Otherwise if the coffee, water ratio is not correct, this pot makes really strong coffee. Also be sure the top is on, the stick support inside centered correctly or the pot will just brew, make hot water.
What is the interiors for this coffee percolator and coffee filter basket made of? Aluminum or stainless steel? I saw an answer stating it is stainless. However..I'm concerned it is aluminum!
Thank you.
A shopper on Oct 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe it is all stainless. I am sure it would be on the box or product description. You could also call Cuisinart, they are very helpful.
where is this coffee pot manufactured?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: On the box it says Made in China. But it doesn't say anything in the book that came with it except that the book was printed in China. There is address of 150 Milford Road, East Windsor, NJ 08520. Hope this helps.
