5.0 out of 5 stars Red hot
Minimum of fuss to make a steaming mug and a half of coffee. Always been a little put off purchasing items made by Andrew James. Mainly due to the fact of reviews which slate their customer service. Seen an upturn in those reviews so i took the chance. Should not have worried as there was no need to contact them. Machine works perfectly. Very happy.

2.0 out of 5 stars does the job but dribbles
I chose this one really for the colour and wish i'd spent more on a better make/model. The paint has chipped within a few weeks, the lid/hinge part feels cheap. and when you pour it coffee goes all over.
It makes nice coffee and big enough to make 2 good mugs full but on the whole i am disappointed with the product.

2.0 out of 5 stars coffee pot, 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Andrew James 12 Cup Red Espresso Coffee Percolator In A Traditional Italian Style Design For Stove Tops - Includes Free Replacement Gasket (Kitchen & Home)
I cleaned the pot through with plain water so it boiled the water through the funnel. But to my disappointment it made the the top pot turn black!
Also the base has changed colour!!!
Overall disappointed with the quality and being from Italian descendant, I have never had a coffee pot do this!

4.0 out of 5 stars The price is what you get, 4 Nov 2013

This review is from: Andrew James 12 Cup Red Espresso Coffee Percolator In A Traditional Italian Style Design For Stove Tops - Includes Free Replacement Gasket (Kitchen & Home)
This percolator cost some 11 pounds so I guess you cannot expect a flawless thing. When you open the lid while boiling water, condensed water drops down to stove (making mess). It is also difficult to tell when coffee is done i.e. all water evaporates (however, this is a feature not a bug). On the other hand, the quality and materials are very good, easy to clean too.

Overall it is alright and if you are looking for cheap quality coffee maker, I recommend it. But be careful and do not open the lid too soon.

Arrived before expected. I already own the 6 cup percolator and was so pleased with it I decided to buy the bigger version for when we have guests. Excellent product at a very reasonable price. I will use Andrew James again

Perfect size to share between two big mugs, it'll make about a 700ml. Bottom half has discoloured (graduating to black) but this doesn't affect the coffee in any way. Would buy again.

5.0 out of 5 stars cheery little coffee maker for those who like good strong coffee in the morning, 17 Dec 2014

This review is from: Andrew James 12 Cup Red Espresso Coffee Percolator In A Traditional Italian Style Design For Stove Tops - Includes Free Replacement Gasket (Kitchen & Home)
this is a big one like the smaller one I bought earlier to give as a gift for Christmas, so it is unused as yet- but I will comment about the little one- it makes excellent strong coffee to wake me up in the morning using Lavazza rossa. It is quick and easy to use and comes with a spare washer - excellent value, bright cheery red which looks great in the kitchen, but it is the smell of real coffee like the strong espresso in coffee houses that makes it so special. if you like good strong real coffee it is simple, quick and easy- you fill the base with water below the valve line, pop the filter on top and put a couple of dessert spoons of coffee in the filter, then screw the top on tightly and sit over a low heat until the steam rises and the top half fills with espresso coffee- serve with warm milk - I disagree that it makes the number of cups promised (if you use tiny cups, maybe!)

Love the colour. It works very well but in my opinion it is not the best of quality,do not open using just the handle,wait for it to cool then open by holding the two halves. You get what you pay for!!

1.0 out of 5 stars AVOID AT ALL COST, 1 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Andrew James 12 Cup Red Espresso Coffee Percolator In A Traditional Italian Style Design For Stove Tops - Includes Free Replacement Gasket (Kitchen & Home)
Terrible product. Avoid at all cost. Dribble issue has been pointed out by customers before me and that was the first flaw I found in this product. Been using it still despite this issue because I though it was no big deal and it still worked. You could never get a tight seal out of this product. However today the worst had happened. The whole thing just exploded and made a mess all over my kitchen. Luckily no one was around the stove when it happened or else someone could really get hurt, not just from the flying stove top but also from the scorching hot water. My question is, was this product even tested to be functioning properly before being sold?
