Fully immersible, fully stainless percolator

(keep austin wired, drink more coffee)


QUESTION:

I would like to find a fully immersible percolator where all the parts that come into contact with the coffee are stainless.

I have a 1965 Kenmore fully immersible stainless percolator and it works great, but it has aluminum basket and tube.

I love it, I prefer my coffee percolated, but don't want to cook this acidic treat in aluminum. So, I use it now to heat water for manual drip or French press brew.

Do you have any idea where I might find the percolator I seek?


ANSWER:

I agree with you about the aluminum basket. I try to avoid aluminum when cooking, and brewing coffee.

I imagine there are plenty of percolators out there now with stainless steel filter baskets. But it’s tough to know without seeing them.

I have a Copco 4- to 8-Cup Polished Stainless Steel Stovetop Percolator, which is stainless steel throughout. My only complaint is that the globe at the top is plastic, and not glass.

Perhaps other readers can chime in, and let us know of other percolators that are all steel.

Best of luck in your search!

I think you will find that the feature that will not allow you to find an electric perc pot with a SS basket assembly is immersiblity.

Farberware has a fully SS pot but it cannot be immersed in water.

As far a the glass top that was wanted by the respondent to your note / go to ebay and type in the search window " glass percolator tops / voila! throw the plastic away.....

ps........ Farberware gave on on clear tops on their perc pots long ago placing on top simply a handle

Perc is still the best......
