I have a 500ml coffee Syphon with a Schott Duran label, and an L inside a spike shape on the glass, it also says made in Germany, but I can't find any information about it online. I don't know if they are still made by this company and I have a friend who thinks it could be valuable. I don't want to use it if it's old and worth something. My friend has a coffee syphon and I like it, so I am eager to put mine to use if its not special. Any advice?

@DaveT,
welcome to forum,

If you can not find your Vacpot on this site:
http://baharris.org/coffee/Manufacturers.htm

it could be a sintrax with schott glass?
Click Here (home.planet.nl)

the Duran Group was one of the joint venture with Schott Glass in some time periode:

Merry X'mas and good luck in finding out the brand of your Syphon

Hey Dave,

I just incidently bought the same Siphon from Schott Duran in an old Coffeeshop in Lisbon !!!
I paid 75 Euro (104 Dollar) and it came with a metal stand and wooden spoon.

They said it was quiet common to use it like 60 years ago and people bought it as a wedding present
but nowadays there is now market for that anymore.

I'm from Germany and I know that Schott is a good glassware company but I never heard of that vacpot before.

The modern coffeeshops in Berlin would use a Hario Siphon with halogen heating, so I was happy to find an old german version in Portugal ;)

I'd say just use it and enjoy it...

Hi David,

Welcome to the Coffeegeek forums! {;-)
I picked up this pretty much the same exact set from my local Salvation Army store 19 months ago for only $3.99!! :D

Mine has a wooden handle on it.
