What Makes This Percolator Special?

We really like that this is an electric percolator meaning it doesn’t have to sit on your stove. It has a “keep warm” function that switches on when brewing is done. This warming feature will stay on until the coffee pot is unplugged. 

There is no automatic shutoff feature designed within this percolator. While we would have liked this feature, it also means there are no confusing buttons to deal with when using. This coffee pot is perfect for those looking for a simple interface. Simply plug it in and it will start brewing. 

And when your coffee is ready to pour, don’t worry about the cord getting in your way. We found it extremely easy to detach the cord. The pot itself only weighs 1 pound, so pouring hot cups of joe was a breeze.  

Why Should I Buy This Percolator? 

Our team was really impressed with the design of the Farberware 12-Cup Percolator. Here are the main takeaways and why you need this percolator in your kitchen: 

  • – Ergonomic Handle and Lid. We enjoyed the large handle provided, giving us a comfortable grip when lifting and serving. It also offered a cool-touch even with hot coffee inside the pot. The rounded knob on the lid was also very easy to lift and remove.
  • – Stainless Steel Exterior. Both the body and the rounded lid is made of premium stainless steel. Not only does it make this percolator look great in any setting, but it’s very durable.
  • – Detachable Cord. This feature is great for several reasons. It means that you can easily carry your coffee pot to your place of pouring. And when it’s ready to clean, all you need to do is remove the cord, wash it with your hands, and dry it with a cloth.
