Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Satisfies a lot of needs for hardcore coffee fans: 2-12 cup capacity; strong, hot brew; a warming plate that keeps coffee at a solid 195°F.
The Farberware has all the basics we look for in electric percolators, including an automatic keep-warm mode, a cool to the touch lid, base and handle, and a detachable cord.
The best feature of this product is it circulates the water continually through the grounds while it’s brewing. This process makes the coffee a little bit stronger than normal.
It also has a cool tap handle informative coffee level indicator, non-drip spout, steel double creel filter and wind off top that locks it into a secure place.
Stainless steel is still the main construction material of this percolator, which is great for containing boiling blends.
On a closer look, I happened to notice that the edges of the percolator are rolled for easy and safe handling.
Even though it has a much larger capacity, the whole brew will still stay warm during its automatic keep warm function.
The keep-warm feature is helpful.
Plastic handles make it easy to grab the pot or lid without having to use a hot pad
The automatic keep-warm function automatically switches on to gently heat the coffee after perking is done.

What reviewers didn't like

One of the pricier electric percolators on the market. Modern paper filters need to be modified before use.
The plug is short, the coffee it produced was bitter, and it has the only clunky, spill-free spout of the bunch.
The coffee pot gets hot
Not the best to prepare less than 10 cups.
The thermostat feels a bit flimsy.
It has a very shot cord that is around 2 feet long, which limits where the pot can be placed when you are brewing or warming coffee.
No on/ off switch
