So I picked up a 50's Sunbeam vac-pot off of e-bay this week. Really got blessed! Seals all in great condition. Screen filter in great shape. This model has a hi/lo switch that automatically switches to low at the appropriate time. Many thanks to Mark for a great how to on vac-pot brewing, the first brew this evening was pretty darn good. The girls have been complaining about how small the Melitta is- so here they go! It holds 6 real cups so I guess it would be like a 10 cup maker?? I guess I got my $4 worth out of the Melitta these past few years, it's going on the shelf for awhile :)

I have a Sunbeam C30 that still functions like it should - a really nice piece of equipment.

I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?

Looks just like mine Eric. I am really impressed with the quality of the machine.
