It’s time for the percolator.

Percing is so fun!
I am hooked on the Perc. I use it at home, at camp, and in the back of the truck. It is the best sound and site to hear and see the coffee percing early in the morning. The perc in the pic is the 9 cup.

The bulk of GSI products are made overseas.
This product is made in China.

This pot is perfect! Provides enough for a larger (9 cup)group to get a little cup each morning before going in for seconds OR provides you and a buddy plenty for a high strung day. Super easy to use and the handle hardly gets hot (i still used a towel to pull it off the stove). Only suggestion is to let it percolate longer than you think....totally worth the money!
I've used this percolator about a dozen times now. The rubber handle is a key feature, to keep from burning your hands when the coffee is ready. Also a nice feature is that simple instructions are included, with how much coffee to add and how long to percolate. Cleanup is easy.
Work Horse in my house!
I really love this thing. Like really... I bought it for a camping trip late in the summer, and have been using it religiously ever since. It is very easy to clean, very easy to use, and makes a very tasty cup of brew. This lovely contraption has seen at least 5 lbs of coffee, and that is probably a low ball guesstimate. For the price and quality you get it would be a bad decision not to get this percolator. Sure there are espresso makers that are awesome, but this is a COFFEE maker and it kills it!!!
I busted this out on a recent camping adventure and was extremely pleased with the results. It's really easy to use. There are little dashes inside the container showing lines for filling for either 4 or 6 cups at a time. The coffee was great though slightly on the weak side. I attributed this to the fact that I didn't let it do its things for quite long enough. Washing this beast is a breeze. All the pieces come apart for extremely easy cleaning and it is dishwasher safe which is always nice.
Worked just fine

This stove-top pot also comes in a 12 cup version. Same straight sided style (not tapered like the 14 cup campfire version) but doesnt appear to be offered here. Any reason why? I have the 12 cupper and it is great for a group of 3-4 adults (or 2 SERIOUS coffe drinkers). I would like to get a few more, but again... not offered. Please help.
Nothing better than fresh brewed coffee in the morning.
I love this coffee pot! It makes an excellent tasting coffee (after you figure out how long to let it percolate). Very well made, cleans up easily and the handle stays cool to the touch.
How many cups?

6 or 9 cups, but only the 9 cup is in stock right now.
The 6 Cup is back in stock, for now at least
Write your question here...When cooking...
Write your question here...When cooking the coffee comes out from around the lid (not the spout). I filled to the water level----what am I doing wrong?
Either the lid is not sealing properly (defective?) or maybe you have the flame to high and the water is overboiling.

Would I be able to get the glass top? I've broken mine.

How long does it take after the percolation starts, before it's "coffee"?
Making coffee with a percolator is a bit of a craft. It is totally dependent on the coffee, the amount you use, and how strong you like your coffee. Once it starts boiling, you just have to experiment to find the perfect combination.
Yep, it's a trial and error sort of thing!
Your stove will play a part. If you have the ability to simmer with your stove it helps to lower the temp to avoid burning, but hot enough to keep the perk flowing. I tend to over perk my coffee because I don't want tea and there is something to be said about a strong taste of coffee in the middle of nowhere that makes me feel good! I didn't time it, but I think we were drinking coffee in less than 10 minutes using a dragonfly.
