Positive Product Points

This pot is my favorite pot of the 10 or so I own.  Looking at it pleases me and my appreciation of its design has not diminished.  It produces a consistently excellent pot of coffee every time.  It is easy to find parts if one has a mishap with the upper or lower or filter rod.

Negative Product Points

It's getting expensive to purchase these on eBay. They are available, but cost $60.00 or more.  Its small neck although pleasing in a design sense makes it hard to clean.  Gaskets for these puppies are getting scarce.

Detailed Commentary

This pot is my favorite pot of the 10 or so that I own.  Looking at it pleases me and my appreciation of its design has not diminished. It makes a consistent and delicious cup of coffee every time.  Watching it do its thing is always fascinating. (Big Plus For Me!).   But simply stated, the coffee it produces is smooth, dense and consistent.   I use Kenya AA most of the time and I keep the grind on the fine side.  

It's not as precious and fragile a pot as it looks.  The glass it's made from is thick and resilient.  That is not to say that it should be handles in a cavalier way.  Be mindful that its fifty years old!  If you decide to sniff one of these out on eBay or thrift shops or wherever you shop, you will be glad you did.  If you decide it's not for you, there will be ample opportunity to sell it.

Buying Experience

I purchased my silex a few years ago and got an outrageous deal on it.  I was super lucky.
