    Excellent Percolator NEW
    by: RBH

    We were so tired of having to buy the drip kind coffee makers every 6 months that we decided to buy a percolator. The first one lasted a couple of years. This second Presto has been fantastic; we have had since June 2011. It was a little more expensive, but very well worth it. It makes delicious coffee every day! We are very happy with it.

    Poor quality and company support!!! NEW
    by: Anonymous

    I purchased mine through Amazon and had it for three weeks before it stopped working. When I empty out the water and look inside, the large nut at the bottom had become eroded. I decided to call the company first to alert them of the quality problem with this model. I was told that they would send me out a shipping label and when I receive it, I can ship the unit to them, so they can see for themselves. In the meantime, I am without a percolator. She didn't even offer to send me a new one for the exchange. I basically told her that their product was a piece of junk and told her that I would never buy any product from their company again. I then called Amazon and told them of my problems with the percolator and how the company dealt with me, and they went ahead and re burst me for the amount of the unit.

    It seems this is the same for all. The first one I bought was a Hamilton-beech. It lasted abbout 6 months I e-mailed customer service. They told me to send it to them. In the mean time, I bought a Farberware. That only lasted a few months. I took it back to where I bought it and they gave me another one. That was about 6 months ago. I do have the replacement Hamilton beech downstairs. I wonder how long that one is going to last.
