This Farberware percolator is a no-nonsense coffee maker. Families have used this old-fashioned brewing method to make outstanding coffee for generations. The stainless steel Yosemite sits atop your stove and circles hot water through the coffee grounds. It brews 4-8 cups of coffee– just enough for yourself but plenty for a small group. I think this makes it a good choice for families. You can set it on the stove in the morning and carry on with your tasks.
It’s also important to note that the Farberware percolator is dishwasher-safe and uses a permanent stainless steel filter. The Farberware Yosemete makes up for its generic design with great functionality. It won’t make anyone say, “Oh wow,” but it’ll get the job done with minimal fuss.
As with a moka pot, don’t set the stove too high. Use low or medium-low heat. You run the risk of overheating the coffee when using stovetop coffee makers, but gas stove owners love them when the power goes out. There’s nothing worse than no electricity and no coffee. Running the stove too high could also discolor the Farberware percolator’s exterior. If you’re looking for a coffee maker that leaves your automatic drip machine in the dust but is still easy to use and clean, this is it.
