Lakeland Retro Stainless Steel Stovetop Coffee Percolator – Makes 4-8 Cups : great

Hi quality sturdy on the3 gas ring due togood design and weight. Hi polished stainless for a long life. Makes perfect coffee that is hot unlike other that can only get luke warm coffee. A good quality basket that needs no filters add to the overall quality of this excellent item well worth the price.

This is the best percolator i have used in years and it suits the gas cooker hob. Easy to load, to clean, and to dry. It sits well on the cooker looking good.

Lakeland Retro Stainless Steel Stovetop Coffee Percolator – Makes 4-8 Cups

  • The retro good looks of this polished stainless steel percolator come straight out of a 1950s diner
  • Simple to use, just fill the permanent filter with ground coffee beans & fill the bottom with water
  • As you heat the percolator on the hob, the water moves through the grounds for a rich tasting brew
  • Large enough to make between 4 & 8 cups of coffee. 1200ml. Suitable for all hobs including induction
  • Buy this product from Lakeland & you can return it for up to 3 years. Proof of purchase is necessary

A lovely piece of stove ware that not only has a classic design but makes great coffee that you can keep hot all through breakfast.

It looks retro, but it works brilliantly. I like coffee first thing and it brews a wonderful cup-highly recommended.

Bought for a relative who loved it.

Lakeland Retro Stainless Steel Stovetop Coffee Percolator – Makes 4-8 Cups : Really pleased worh product.

I have been looking for one of these stove top percolators for some time, following the ‘demise’ of my original one. This fits the bill perfectly. Not expensive, but stylish design. Can now have proper coffee again. Would definitely recommend this product.

Larger than expected but good and well made.

Fabulous product, quick and easy to use and looks great. Only downside is that they recommend removing the inside filter after brewing and before pouring, can be a little tricky.

Just what i needed to set off my new kitchen adds a touch of 1950 american style to the hob top.

Arrived on time and as described, packaging excellent, followed instructions, does what it says on the box, tastes great too, what more could you ask.

The biggest pot i have found and is perfect for my needs. Nit expensive, i would have preferred an enamel one but couldn’t find a larger one.

This makes excellent coffee and keeps it warm for a second cup (not a mug as a cup is quicker to drink)would recommend to friends and family.

Wasn’t really expecting this to be as big as a big electric kettle. Makes more coffee than we can possible drink at one time. But, is an excellent percolator and makes beautiful coffee. May have to stay in the cupboard until big parties are planned, however. I wish there was a 2-4 cup size version out there.

Even with all the cons expressed elsewhere, which i largely agree with, none of them are bad enough to make me too bothered. It does what it’s supposed to. The taste of the brew you get depends on how you use it and what you put in it. If you want a simple gadget to make coffee that’s dishwasher safe, glass-free, needs no electricity, goes on any heat source, needs no special coffees or cartridges, and can keep your coffee warm after you’ve brewed up, this is it. Usefully, the filters can take quite fine ground coffee without leaking grounds into the pot if you wet them first, but to be on the safe side, be prepared to lose some of the 1. 2l total capacity to dregs, the basket, and the rather rudimentary spout. The magnet issue; everything on it except the base is non-magnetic, perhaps for chemical reasons. The base is ferro-magnetic, and does the biz with our induction hob in an efficient and controllable (with practise) manner. 1, as mentioned by others it has an emptying and cleaning problem.

Even when you put it on and forget to switch it off, it cleans up like new. Very useful for entertining.

I like everything about this percolator. It is easy to use and the coffee tastes wonderful.

Already ordered a variety of coffee’s to enjoy.

The most excellent percolator i have ever possessed. It brews a delicious cup of coffee.

Great product for weekends when kids are home. For one cup we have an aeropress. The retro cleans well, i use vinegar on the whole house, it’s natural.

Superb product haven’t had one for years really satisfied.

Have been looking around for sometime for a product like this. Finally i now have one it makes a great pot of coffee stays very hot and very easy to clean. I am very pleased with the product would recommend this product.

    This review is from : Lakeland Retro Stainless Steel Stovetop Coffee Percolator – Makes 4-8 Cups

    I recently bought the dualit electric percolator which i loved until after 3 weeks of use it developed faults and stopped percolating a full pot. I loved the fact that the coffee was actually piping hot and had a good depth of flavour. Having looked at various different electric coffee machines across a whole range of prices i decided to try this. I’ve used stove top expresso pots before but found them unpredictable so was expecting the same with this pot which is why i looked for alternatives before coming back to it. I have to say that i am really pleased with it. Coffee can easily be reheated if needed and it doesn’t taste stewed. If you drink the coffee straight after percolating then it’s lovely and hot. It’s easy to see when the percolating starts and i find around 7 minutes gives a good cup of coffee. It’s very easy to clean and i find it doesn’t use as much coffee as you would in a filter machine. Obviously that will depend on personal taste and the coffee used.

    Was very pleased with this until the see through part at the top, split in half. This is because of the heat and this part is made of plastic.

  9. 4.0 out of 5 stars Good product

    This review is from : Lakeland Retro Stainless Steel Stovetop Coffee Percolator – Makes 4-8 Cups

    This has proved to be a very useful addition to the kitchen. It does seem to take a long time to come to the boil and there may be slight design problems that others have already mentioned in their reviews – such as the way the spout is attached to the body and the slight leak from the clear plastic lid but hey-ho these are not problems. I suspect some improvements could be made but they would probably lead to a massive price increasevery satisfied with the quality of the product – unfortunately i was not able to find and compare any other products of this type not even in the aga shop which was very surprising.

    This review is from : Lakeland Retro Stainless Steel Stovetop Coffee Percolator – Makes 4-8 Cups

    If you are used to a spanish style stovetop coffee pot you will hate this – the coffee is weak and watery in comparison. I have sold mine on second-hand and gone back to the sort where you fill the base with water, put a layer of coffee grounds in the middle section and heat until the liquid percolates through to the pot the top.

    This review is from : Lakeland Retro Stainless Steel Stovetop Coffee Percolator – Makes 4-8 Cups

    I bought one of these on a trip to the us from amazon. It`s called the farberware classic yosemite 8 cup coffee percolator over there. I also bought a fitz-all replacement percolator top to go with it. Put these two together & you have an amazing quality coffee maker. I read most of the reviews for this item before deciding to buy & took notice of the many tips on how to brew an excellent pot of coffee. I`m sure that many coffee lovers would probably be grateful for the advice given. I`ve been using it a few times every day for the past few weeks & have not encountered any problems with it. I`m now drinking some of the best coffee i`ve ever tasted.

        Not a lot that can be said about this type of product is there. It is a great size allowing for good sized mugs of coffee and it is extremely easy to fill and use. I use it on a gas hob and it is superb, the smell of coffee percolating away, joy. No hesitation in recommending this product for your consideration.
