    Advantages

    The main advantage of this unit is its unique way of preparing your coffee blend. It has a distinctive taste and aroma that is unlike coffee prepared by a standard coffee maker or espresso machine. The built-in water level indicator will help you to efficiently serve your family or all your guests. With its dripfree serving sprout, a messy coffee table will be the last thing you will worry about. The package includes a stainless steel interior basket that is easy to use and makes the whole unit safe to be cleaned by a dishwasher. It is uniquely portable and can be used anywhere there is a stove.

    Disadvantages

    As with other compact-sized coffee makers, this model can only prepare four to eight average-sized cups of coffee per heating cycle. The rather narrow base of the unit won't fit perfectly on top of most stovetops or ranges. It is still relatively expensive compared to a traditional aluminum percolator. The plastic dome top included in this unit can be prone to melting under certain heating conditions, although you can purchase a replacement glass or metal dome top. The unique flavor of coffee produced by this appliance won't be to everyone's liking.
