Love this percolator! It gives the coffee a great flavor! The only thing we dislike about it is the plastic knob on top. We are on our third percolator because the knob breaks after using every day for a year. I wish they would use a glass knob instead. Still love it though!

Well here is an update to my original review: Three weeks into my new percolator it just quit working, something electrical. Zappos was awesome at sending me a replacement ASAP, the replacement one was even worse. It percolated out of the pour spout when the coffee was almost done and when it was at its hottest. Very dangerous as it blew coffee all over the counter and walls. I tried using only 10 cups on the next brew. It did help but I didn't pay to only use part of the machine to avoid injury to myself and my kitchen. Zappos was once again awesome at resolving this problem and refunded my money which, due to their excellent customer service, I re-ordered another brand of coffee maker with them. Zappos was much better at helping me with this problem than the Cuisinart company which I had to contact 3 times about these issues and they didn't seem to concerned. I will do business with Zappos again, but not Cuisinart!!!

Love peculator. Style, ease of pouring and especially the temperature of coffee.

Brands I'd also recommend: Farberware IF lid was easy to removed ( which it isn't)

I love the look of this pot and the coffee is very hot which is what I wanted. But if you have coffee ground for and it is very weak and if you have it ground finer it's mud at the bottom of the cup. I will probably send it back. :(

Brands I'd also recommend: Mr coffee programable thermal drip

I received the coffee pot in August 2011. Great looking coffee pot; I loved the way it made coffee. Really liked seeing it percolate in the clear bubble on top. Unfortunately, it just stopped working in December 2011. Plugged it in as I do every day and nothing happened. No more Cuisinart for me.

For the money, I rate this product as a piece of junk. I have had it less than a year and had way too many problems with it. Now it just quit working and I called the warranty service and they will only replace it as long as I pay the shipping and handling. So now I am paying more money for the piece of junk.

I am so disappointed in this coffee maker. The coffee tastes horrible (I tried different coffees) and it does not stay hot once the percolating is over. I will return it.

Makes an excellent cup of hot coffee. If you don't like the sludge in your cup from drip pots or the one cup instant coffee makers, this coffee pot is for you. I put a paper filter in the basket and have a clean cup of coffee. My only wish is that it had a timer so I don't have to use a receptacle timer.

I love my percolator which I purchased at another website, the only reason I purchased it at another website was that Zappos lists it on sale for a great price down from retail. The price that Cuisinart lists as the retail price. Don't be quick to purchase from this website, other websites are selling it for cheaper and with free shipping.

This was a replacement for a Krups Coffeemaker. I wanted something with a vintage touch, and this style is perfect. I love this percolator, coffee tastes better and stays hot. I don't have a problem with grounds in the coffee, just wait until it finishes perking. I love the perking sound in the morning. Thank you again to Zappos for excellent customer service and fast shipping. I got my new percolator the next day.

This is a lovely coffee pot. It's can be delicate because the bottom is attached and not removable. It makes good coffee. Follow their instructions.

This is an update from my original review. I love the look of this coffee pot and gave it a very good review. After 1 week use my husband and I discovered the coffee had a terrible metallic taste. I changed the coffee brand but there was no difference in the taste of the coffee. I called Zappos for a refund and decided to forget about the coffee pot altogether and bought my husband a pair of shoes. Thank you Zappos for excellent customer service again. Please try to stock other brands of percolators, and I might try it again.
