Steel replacement parts for aluminum coffee percolator?
I love my stovetop, glass percolator. It not only makes delicious, rich coffee - it also makes it HOT. (I hate tepid coffee from a drip). The problem is, the plastic parts.
I recently bought an old Pyrex glass stovetop percolator, with glass stem and basket - however, the basket bottom and lid appear to be aluminum. I'm wondering if no one has ever made steel replacements for these aluminum parts?
I also have an all steel stovetop pot, however, I like the see-through glass.ANSWER:
Sounds like you’re a serious percolator fan!
I can’t say I know the answer to your question, but I don’t imagine you’ll be able to find steel replacement parts for a particular model of percolator that includes aluminum.
That said, I’m publishing your question because I know we have a lot of readers who are fans of percolators, and maybe one or more of them will be able to help you.
My guess is that you’ll have to find a new percolator that is made just with glass and steel.
