I like the stove top perks too...I hear some people complaining about the perk coffee tasting burnt...But are old perk from the 60's and this one from 1914...make smoother coffee with same amount of grounds than my newer pots....i can put more grounds in this one than i can my new ones...holds only about 8 cups thou...But wow it can make some mud if you need...or weak as you need...And no grounds getting by...and look..its 100 years old allmost..and still working..hehe..I would like too see a new mr coffee last that long<~~even with filter water i burnt them up in less than a year..lol

What a life span!! The new percolators dont lastSad junk....<~~atleast the ones i ran into...Regular coffee pots the same...But i go on youtube and watching people making coffee on percolators they had sence the 1950's and used every day....they dont want to make them like they use too..then we wouldnt need new ones...lol

this one..i thought was dead..but like i said in the video...i just messed with a thermal spring fuse thing on the bottom..i looked inside i could tell it just made some contacts..and it wasnt all the way tight...so i tightened it.....plugged it in for one last try..and it fired right up....i guess this was one of the first pots that was known for "not" burning your house down..hehe

Wow, it's been a long time side I've seen one of those. It's the only coffee maker I remember growing up. And my wife and I have had dozens of them in our adult life. They sure don'tmake them like they used to. Our latest, the keurig, lasted a whole 8 months before it's first problem.

When I was in the Navy back in 1973, I was on an old WW2 destroyer.I ran the evaporators and the coffee pot was my job. We had a perk that was electric and had been on the boart since it was new probably. Well me being the new and not a coffee drinker at the time,I scrubbed the pot clean Not a smart thing to do! I caught so much crap for that stunt. It took a few times to get it back right. Take it from me just flush and fill!

Ok, now I have to ask her for it. I have coffee pot envy.
How long do you let it percolate before it is finished?
