Bought this percolator alongside the Krups coffee bean grinder. Being a real coffee enthusiast, I couldn't resist the look of this percolator. The design of the machine is striking, it is neat, compact and attractive. The machine is simple to use, it offers immediate use or programme/ timer options, there is also the option to press the button in order to prolong the time that the hotplate stays hot. ( although the manufacturer advises against excessively prolonged heating) I found the percolator easy to use - simply lift the lid to fill the rear compartment with water (left or right hand side), add coffee as required to mesh filter at the front and press the button shown lit as red in the photo. Hey presto, job done. If I make 10 cups I tend to press the same button when the percolator would otherwise cool. Pressing the button extends the heating time. Normal heat period is around 1 hr.I haven't used paper filters within the mesh filter, I have found the flavour to be perfect as it is. The mesh filter is held within a funnel, both have rebated handles and can be lifted out easily for washing purposes. The glass flask/ jug is generous in size - thankfully! I highly recommend this product.
