Hamilton Beach was founded back in 1910. This brand is very well known for selling quality kitchen appliances like blenders, slow cookers, and coffee machines. 

Our team wanted to see if this brand lived up to its name when it came to percolators. We have tried, tested, and reviewed several models to bring you the top ones in 2021. 

Among the models reviewed was the Hamilton Beach 12 Cup Percolator.  In this review, we will cover everything from its specs, features, and benefits. 

Let’s dive in! 

Who is the Hamilton Beach 12 Cup Percolator For?

The Hamilton Beach 12-Cup Electric Percolator is for those who enjoy deep, rich mugs of coffee in the mornings. The aromas produced by percolators are truly unmatched, which is why we’ll always be fans of this type of coffee. 

The Hamilton Beach Percolator is electric, which means you can use it anywhere with a nearby plug in. If you’re looking for a stovetop percolator, this may not be for you. However, let us say that if you’ve been using stovetop models, you should try an electric option for a change. You’ll quickly find that these are easier to use and more convenient since you can brew coffee anywhere you go. Better yet – this particular model has a “keep warm” heater, which will keep your coffee nice and hot.

What Makes This Percolator Special?

The Hamilton Beach Percolator stands out from its competition thanks to its handy features. The benefits go beyond creating hot, flavorful coffee or an attractive design. 

  • – Large Capacity. This percolator brews up to 12 cups of coffee, but if you don’t need that much, simply add fewer cups of water. 
  • – Warming Function. This machine makes cups of joe fast, and the “keep warm” feature keeps them warm for hours. 
  • – Ready-to-Serve Light Indicator. When coffee is ready to serve, a light turns on, taking the guesswork out of when it’s done. When this light turns on, brewing is complete, and the “keep warm” mode kicks in.
  • – Detachable Cord. When you’re ready to serve, all you need to do is detach the cord and pour cups using the cool-touch handle. The detachable cord also makes it easy to clean and transport from place to place.

Finally, the twist-off lid locks in place to avoid accidental spills, and there is even a water level viewing window so that users always know how much coffee is left in the pot. Our team really enjoys the simplicity of this machine. 

Why Should I Buy This Percolator? 

Before single-serve machines and automatic drip coffee makers, many people used percolators. Remember the perking sounds of brewing coffee? Or the rich aromas and strong flavors produced as a result of using one? You can have this and more with the Hamilton Beach 12 Cup Percolator. 

The Hamilton Beach Percolator is at the top of its class as it offers quickly brewed coffee in an attractive stainless-steel pot. All the way from its good looks to neat features, you and your guests will really enjoy having this hot model around.

Our Verdict

Our team enjoyed reviewing the Hamilton Beach Percolator and highly recommends it to anyone looking for a quality, durable coffee pot. This brand knows great coffee, and their percolator makes creating hot mugs full of coffee a breeze. All that’s left to do is try it for yourself!
