Knapp Monarch model 51-500 ???
- I just picked up a Knapp Monarch 51-500A Vacuum coffee maker the other
day and I tried it out tonight. It looks to be made of copper-chrome
like the Sunbeam & Cory makers.
It seems to take a long time to reach brewing temperature, but when it
did and completed the brewing cycle, the coffee tasted good.
This model does not seem to have a warmer built into it.
Anyone know this model or other Knapp Monarch models and how they
- HI Gary,
I have several Knapp Monarch models. The ones I have
all have a keep warm feature? Isn't there a
"warm-brew" switch at the bottom of the unit to get it
to brew? One reason it may take longer is that brand

brewing temp. But it should switch back to low after
the brew cycle. I think in the photos section under
my vacpots you will find several photos of the
adjustment part of the ones I have which is on the

Check out tonight's top picks on Yahoo! TV.
- The model I just picked up has one red button to press to start the
brewing process and when the brewing is done that button turns off.
Next to the red button is a hole with an adjusting screw to set the
temperature before the brew cycle turns off. I have seen photos of
later models with the warmer/brew switch.
