Positive Product Points

Nicely made.  Beautiful chrome finish.

Negative Product Points

I have had trouble making a good pot of coffee in this unit.

Detailed Commentary

Boy, was I excited!  This thing was absolutely MINT!  The rubber seal was like new.  The chrome was pristine.  

Boy, was I in for a letdown.  No matter what I do, I can't seem to make this thing brew a good pot of coffee.   If the dwell is set for a short brew cycle, the coffee is thin tasting.  If it's set too long, it seems almost as though it develops TOO much vacuum and the coffee forms and inpenetrable, virtual plug, preventing the brewed coffee from returning south.  The only success I had was with commercial, canned coffee, but that's not what I like to drink.  

One other problem is that when brewed at capacity, the coffee sloshes around so violently on top, that it spills out, despite having a reasonably tight lid.

Right now it's on a basement shelf and every once in a while, I try to resurrect it, thinking I've learned something new that would allow me to brew good coffee in this unit.

Buying Experience

Fun find at an antiques mall.
