The Tops Stainless Steel Percolator in the 12 cup size is perfect for a cup of coffee to share with a few friends. These percolators bring all the nostalgia of going to older relative’s places on the weekend with your parents! However, these also make amazingly good coffee. Perking allows you to control the intensity and strength of your brew. This series is made of high-luster heavy gauge 18/8 stainless steel. As with your classic memory, it also has a clear glass cover knob on the lid to see the brewing strength. The handle is Permawood to stay cool even fresh off the stovetop. Inside the percolator is the non-reactive aluminum water stem, filter basket and spreader plate. With a percolator, you don’t need paper filters. The pot has permanent cup markings, and the whole thing is dishwasher safe.
