Positive Product Points

Very attractive/stylish vacuum pot.

Very eash to use.

Hands free operation, unlike some of the other older models.

Easy to clean the inside.

Makes excellent coffee.

Negative Product Points

Definitely must wait until both sections are thoroughly cooled down before cleaning.

Exterior a little harder to keep clean simply because of fingerprints on the shiney chrome exterior.

Detailed Commentary

If you are in the market for something that is functional and stylish this is the coffee maker for you.  

The vacuum coffee maker has a very nice art deco look to it.  Nice chrome exterior with black bakelite handles, base, lid and knob.

Very easy to use.  Numbers are imprinted on the inside of the bottom pot where the handle connects so you can fill to the appropriate amount of cups.  Just fill the bottom container with water to the desired amount.  Attach the top portion by pushing down and making sure it is snug and then clamp down the two bakelite handles to secure the top portion and make sure the metal filter is clamped down (just push down until it latches and no longer pops up) and put in desired amount of coffee.  For me, half a cup of freshly ground or pre-ground coffee works.  Then put the lid on and turn the knob to start and off you go!  You don't even have to watch over it while it works unlike some of the older coffee makers.  Very hands off.

It takes a little longer for the Sunbeam Coffeemaster C50 to make a pot of coffee in comparison to a dripolator, but the taste is outstanding considering that it brews longer.

Definitely makes a stronger cup of coffee which I love because I drink my coffee black, but even my husband enjoys the coffee and he uses sugar and cream.

Buying Experience

It took a while to find a Coffeemaster C50 at a decent price on eBay because this seems like the popular model currently, but eventually I found one and paid $15.99 for it.  The seller was great and the coffee maker arrived very quickly.  Very pleased by the whole transaction.
