When we think of coffee pots, we often imagine a stout pot made from see-through glass with a plastic cover and handle on top. We take out the coffee pot to serve coffee to our guests so it is not only a kitchen appliance but also a piece of decoration. The cheap-looking standard modern coffee pot is not exactly appealing to the eye though. There are other types of coffee pots available that will look stylish in any kitchen or dining room. Some of them are made by Farberware.
Farberware is an American maker of cookware and kitchen appliances that was founded in New York City over a hundred years ago. Their main goal is, as they state on their website, to make home cooking easier for everyone. And they know how to do it with style.
Farberware coffee pots
Farberware’s iconic stainless steel coffee pot brings back memories of the decades that have long passed. The Farberware coffee pot, also called a coffee percolator, is a stove-top pot that brews coffee by allowing the boiling water from the bottom of the pot to travel upwards in a vertical tube. The water then passes back to the bottom through the coffee beans that are sitting in the upper part of the percolator. The process continues again and again so the liquid soaks in the flavor from coffee beans much more than in a regular coffee pot. Percolators were replaced by automatic drip coffee makers back in the 70s and 80s. But many coffee-lovers still use percolators, insisting that coffee brewed the old-fashioned way is tastier and richer in aroma because of the frequency the coffee passes through the beans inside of the pot.
Farberware offers four models of coffee percolators, all with the nostalgic design of classic kitchenware of the past. They are made from stainless steel and can brew 8 or 12 of 4-ounce cups of coffee at one time. Each Farberware coffee pot has a permanent filter basket so there is no need to buy any paper filters. The lid doesn’t allow any heat from inside the pot to escape so that the brewing process is even faster. A see-through glass knob sits at the top of the lid and indicates when the process of percolating begins and ends. By adjusting the brewing time you can control the strength of the coffee. The interior of the pot was designed to prevent the coffee from absorbing any unwanted smells and taste from the steel components. Farberware coffee pots can be washed in a dishwasher with the exception of the glass knob and the vertical tube spring.
Each model costs around $30 which is not a high price for such an intensive flavor combined with a stylish design that will look good in any interiors. Farberware products are widely available in many retail stores, such as Walmart, across the country.
