Rated 3 out of 5 by DrSal top melted
This pot served me well for many years as a device to simply boil water in. Good size. However, the clear bubble thing popped off easily. Then it melted (quite easily). Without the bubble thing, you can't perk coffee. The size is great. I just had to buy a replacement from a competitor, which really bugged me because I am quite loyal to LLB. But alas, I love (need) my morning coffee which is usually made off the grid, and coffee bags, although good, just don't make it.

The clear plastic top falls off every time you open the lid. The interior markings on this "6 cup" option lack a fill line so when you are camping, it is easy to overfill, resulting in a boilover mess. There are too many option for camp coffee to give this any sort of positive. I guess it did work to boil some water for tea.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lovespoms disappointed in coffee pot
This little coffee pot looks so nice and the coffee was delicious,but the little clear top was made of plastic. I can remember my grandma having one of these [also my mom ],but the top use to be made from glass. This one kept falling out on me,I just couldn't get it to stay in. The hinge on the lid has a pin in it and it started to work it's way out after 2 weeks of use so I just had to return it. I thought it was poorly made especially for the price.i wouldn't recommend it to anyone..

I have seen and used many percolators over the years but this one is the finest built & designed. The details of all the parts and how they fit together make it a successful brew every time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sailor3233 great quality stainless for making coffee on boat
Makes fabulous coffee. I had a problem with perk-view top locking into place but L.L. Bean stood by the 100% guarantee and sent me out an entire replacement coffee pot with a postage paid label to return 1st pot. This one is perfect. I've used pot on an electric burner and on a butane burner.

i think percolated coffee tastes better than drip, and this little one is perfect for me. the spout has a ding in it, and i think that was from a rough ups delivery. the box appeared ragged as if it had been very badly handled. the pot works great though.

The smallest one is the perfect size for me. I just want one good, very large, very hot cuppa coffee when I wake up. I figured out the trick for hurrying it up. I have an electric kettle that boils water very quickly. I keep it full and ready to push the lever down as soon as I walk into the kitchen. By the time I put the filter and coffee grounds in the basket, the water in the kettle is hot. First I pour the hot water into the pot then I load the filled basket into it, set it on the burner on high and it starts to perk in about a minute and a half. Then I turn it off and let it continue to perk for about 3 more minutes. I have a glass cooktop stove, so the burner stays hot for a while after I shut it off. My "cup" is about 18 ounces so this makes plenty for me. I use the regular flat percolator filters because I can't stand grounds in my coffee and sometimes that can happen when you pour from a percolator without removing the basket first if you don't use a filter. The filter makes it easy and quick to dispose of the coffee grounds and leaves no mess so it takes seconds to hand wash the pot.
I have the LLBean Visa and also had coupons so I got the pot for only $9.95 <---- now that's a deal!!! Although I'm only an "occasional" shopper, I've been a huge Bean fan for over 30 years.
