Buy Percolator



"You use it by adding coarse coffee beans in the top chamber and adding the desired amount of water to the bottom before reassembling the pieces and putting it all over heat," says Robles. "Once you put it over heat, you'll have to wait until the water comes to a boil and it'll drive the water up the tube and then pour over the coffee. You'll know the coffee is done when you start hearing a spurting sound coming from the water."Once you learn how to use a percolator, you will likely need time to get a feel for the process and its coffee, as both differ from those of drip coffee makers and other popular machines. "Electric percolators cycle the water through the coffee grounds several times, creating the characteristic complex, bold-tasting brew. Stovetop models like the Moka pot only pass water through the coffee grinds once, using pressure to produce the espresso-like brew," Teplitz says. "I would recommend using a coffee that is more robust in flavor so that its characteristics can stand up to the high heat and quick extraction produced by a percolator.""}},"@type": "Question","name": "What's the benefit of a coffee percolator?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": ""One of the benefits of this brew method is the ease of use, which requires little effort from the coffee maker. You don't have to think about all the added variables that go into a pour over or some immersion brewers," says Robles."The best reason to use a percolator is it only needs heat, water, and coffee. It's great for camping, making coffee with limited space, or making coffee in large quantities. Unlike other methods, percolators scale easily from just a single cup to brewing large amounts for events," Teplitz says.Some use percolators to make tea or hot chocolate, and it's even capable of making broth, according to Betty Fraser, executive caterer and Top Chef alumni, who uses a percolator for these purposes. She says the percolator "is great when you need to serve a hot beverage to a large crowd of 20 plus."","@type": "Question","name": "How should I clean a coffee percolator?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": ""When you're done using it, place it on a counter near a sink, open the spigot and let all the remaining hot liquid drain out. This is much safer than trying to pour it," Fraser says. "Then, place it in a sink and add some hot water from the faucet and a bit of soap, being very careful to not expose the electrical workings to water. Then, drain again through the spigot to clean out the spigot, and repeat the process with warm water until all soap has been removed." Dry the percolator before storing it.Robles employs a similar method. "Just like when cleaning any coffee machine I have at home, I like to hand wash with a bit of dish soap and warm water," he says. "I don't like using super harsh chemicals or old sponges because you can end up leaving a lingering smell and taste that'll later impact your coffee. If you do start to see old coffee oils stuck to your brewer, you should let it sit overnight with water and whatever brand of chemicals your manufacturer suggests you use. Leaving this on for longer than you should impact the flavor of your coffee and give it a more bitter taste, so clean as regularly as you can to avoid having to drink bad coffee."Teplitz holds another opinion on cleaning percolators: "You should dump the grounds after brewing. When the pot has cooled, take it apart and rinse all parts with hot water. Most importantly: never use soap," he says. "If you are unable to get all the coffee oils off, you can use a cleaner like Cafiza, which is intended for cleaning residual coffee oils.""]}]}] Skip to contentFood & WineSearchSearchPlease fill out this field.Log InMy AccountLog OutMagazine Subscribe Manage Your Subscription Give a Gift Subscription Get Help Newsletter Sweepstakes Subscribe SearchSearchPlease fill out this field.RecipesRecipes Breakfast & Brunch Lunch Appetizers Dinner Side Dishes Salads Soup Desserts Cocktails Holidays & Events View All IngredientsIngredients Beef Bread Chicken Seafood Pasta & Noodles Pork Vegetables View All WineWine Red Wine White Wine Champagne & Sparkling Wine Rose Wine Wine Regions View All DrinksDrinks Beer Coffee Tea Juices View All SpiritsSpirits Rum Whiskey Vodka Gin Mocktails Tequila Mezcal View All What to BuyWhat to Buy Food & Wine Faves Trends & Deals Cookware Bar & Drinks Small Appliances Knives Grilling & BBQ Hosting & Dining View All Cooking TechniquesCooking Techniques Baking Grilling Steal This Trick View All TravelTravel Restaurants Bars Wine Regions View All News About Us Subscribe Log InMy AccountMy AccountLog OutMagazineMagazine Subscribe Manage Your Subscription Give a Gift Subscription Get Help Newsletter Sweepstakes Follow Us Facebook Flipboard Instagram Pinterest Twitter YouTube Recipes Breakfast & Brunch Lunch Appetizers Dinner Side Dishes Salads Soup Desserts Cocktails Holidays & Events View All Ingredients Beef Bread Chicken Seafood Pasta & Noodles Pork Vegetables View All Wine Red Wine White Wine Champagne & Sparkling Wine Rose Wine Wine Regions View All Drinks Beer Coffee Tea Juices View All Spirits Rum Whiskey Vodka Gin Mocktails Tequila Mezcal View All What to Buy Food & Wine Faves Trends & Deals Cookware Bar & Drinks Small Appliances Knives Grilling & BBQ Hosting & Dining View All Cooking Techniques Baking Grilling Steal This Trick View All Travel Restaurants Bars Wine Regions View All News About UsSubscribeWhat to BuyCoffee, Tea & EspressoThe Best Coffee Percolators According to ProsThese top models efficiently deliver a rich brew with modern simplicity.

This is purely a case of personal preference, as both options have the capacity to brew perfect coffee. However, an automated or electric percolator is a much more technologically sophisticated device, with a shorter overall lifespan. Whichever of the two you choose, pick a quality device from a reputable brand to ensure reliable long-term performance.


Essential to take into account, as some coffee percolators can be an absolute nightmare to clean. The same applies to all coffee makers across the board, which in some instances are practically inaccessible. As the cleanliness of a percolator directly impacts the quality of its output, ensuring it is easy to keep clean is a must.


Growing up, my mother always had a percolator full of freshly-brewed coffee at the ready, and she always poured a cup before sitting down to chat: Whether she was catching up with me, my sisters, my dad, a neighbor, or anyone she called on the telephone, she did so over a cup of coffee from her percolator.


There are two basic types of coffee percolators: The first is the electric percolator, which operates on a timer and has a keep warm mode. The second is a stovetop percolator, which heats on the stove, just like a tea kettle. In my experience, the stovetop version takes a bit more babysitting, so I prefer an electric one, like my beloved Westbend Classic Electric Percolator. 041b061a72
