Rated 1 out of 5 by QualityLady110 Coffee not dark
Bought this item based on all the good reviews. Had a stovetop percolator before which made great coffee but was hard to clean. Well this new percolator was easy to clean, but the coffee never got dark. Don't know whether the larger size messes up the brewing processing, but after perking for 15 minutes, the coffee was still weak. My old drip machine made stronger coffee. By the way the plastic knob also keeps falling off. Will be returning item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MI76 Great Coffee, Easy Care
We have used this product for over a month with great results. The pot and basket size are easy to clean, and boil overs are a thing of the past. Hope to enjoy this percolator for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wmkz Glacier Stainless-Steel Percolator, 12-Cup
This coffee pot delivers what it promises - a great pot of traditional percolated coffee. As was expected, the full pot of water took a while to set to boil (approx.10 minutes on high). But once it started to perk, I reduced the heat to medium and let it do its thing for about 8-10 minutes and had rich, dark and delicious coffee pouring into my cup.
*Use a paper coffee filter in the basket to reduce the coffee grounds that end up in your cup.

Always count on LL Bean to provide top notch products and service. Using the percolator at our camp site and it worked great. Wonderful coffee!

Love this pot. Makes generous amount of coffee so we can fill our thermos for the day. Great tasting coffee. I do use a filter in it.

by aareview Bigger Then You Think
I accidentally ordered the 12-cup pot, thinking the 6-cup pot would be really small. It turns out to be quite large, bigger then an individual (or one or two people) could use. It's good if you have a large camp of adults who drink coffee.
The 6-cup pot is a bit small (it only fits about 4 cups of water in it), especially compared to my existing 8-cup pot, but I found it actually makes plenty of coffee.
Fortunately, I was able to to exchange the pot at the local LL Bean store for a six cup pot. It was easy, they had a clerk bring me over a six cup pot. It took like 5 minutes. You might consider buying this in-person rather then over the internet, to know the size.
The six-cup pot I got is great. Yes, it's relatively small but for one or two people, it's perfect. I use it daily at home and in the woods -- I do not have a regular coffee pot. It's made out of stainless steel rather then aluminum, so I suspect it will hold up better then my old pot, which after a while got quite bent up.

This coffee pot is well worth the money. The handle is made of rubber and you don't have to worry about it getting hot, especially if you're cooking on a camp stove. I'd buy another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Coffeekat Not as described, but good coffee
Bean's webpage describes the pot as 96 oz, which would be 12 8-oz cups. When percolator arrived, the sticker on the pot lists 60 oz, which would be 12 5-oz cups. With everyone using mugs and travel cups now days, I was hoping for the 96 oz size as described. But it is a very good quality coffee pot, and I am keeping it. But I think Bean's webpage should be corrected. Plus I learned during my search for a larger coffee pot that the "industry standard" for the description/definition of a coffee cup is 5 oz, which I suppose would be the older style little cups that came with saucers when bought in a set. Although the size was disappointing, this is a good percolator
