This is one of the most popular percolators sold today. It is a sleek percolator which has a brewing capacity of four to eight cups of coffee. Like most percolators you get a permanent filter basket eliminating the need for messy paper filters. This percolator is made of 18/10 stainless steel which is polished to produce a sleek mirror finish that is pleasing to the eye. The handle is synthetic and remains cool to the touch after brewing. Parts are dishwasher safe and the unit measures 8 1/4 inches by 6 5/6 inches by 9 inches and weighs about 2.2 pounds. This is the Farberware Model 50124 Classic Yosemite 8 cup stainless steel percolator.
This is a an old fashioned stovetop percolator, no electrical outlet needed. To keep the finish new looking you should hand wash the unit, but the glass top and the filter basket can be washed in the dishwasher. This percolator is easy to use and easy to clean and maintain. Plus, considering you have no moving parts and it is made of stainless steel it will give you years of service without fear of breaking down like most modern coffee makers.
