Re: [vacpot] Combination Wear Ever Drip, Perk Pot photo.
- Hi Larry,
I'm sorry, what I meant by year is that I have several Wear-Ever booklets, each one a different year, and each booklet (per year) shows the line of cookware available that year.

I thought of that, and I like to see all the parts as well. I will get some and put them on later.. thanks for asking.. I wonder if others made a similar kind of dual purpose pot? It is the only one so far I have noticed around..
When you say the year, do you think the 68 means 1968 or what are you going by?

- HI Roland and all,
Added the requested interior parts for the Wear Ever Drip and Perk Combination pot.
Thanks to Nancy for digging out the booklet with the 1962 date on it.

> Kind of neat in a way, two for one..I have a collection of coffee pots and have used them all. I have a
glass stove-top percolator that has made some very good brew. I also
have a 12 cup glass Proctor-Silex electric perc that can make very
good coffee. Both of these percolators seem to do better with typical
caned coffee, like Maxwell House or Folgers, than my vac brewers
usually do. I have also used many drip makers through the years. I've
had two Bunns that have made decent coffee but not outstanding coffee.
I finally put them in the attic for storage. I used to have a small
Norelco four cup drip maker that did even better than the Bunns. Wish
I'd have kept it. However, the best coffee consistently comes from my
vacuum brewers. I have a three Sunbeam Coffeemasters, including one
with a broken burner which I removed and converted to a stove-top
(works great). I recently gave a friend my old Cory (I think it was
Cory) stainless stove-top vac pot. I also have a glass vac pot (Cafex
bottom and Silex top-long story) and both a 5-cup and 12-cup Bodum
electric vac brewers. All of them make excellent coffee. I've been
mostly using the 12-cup Bodum these days for convenience, as I don't
have to sit and watch it like a stove-top unit. It makes a wonderful
brew that is similar to the others I have (all are a bit different,
but mostly very similar).
BTW, I roast my own beans these day and get the green beans online.
The results are far better than what I can buy locally.
I'll probably continue with my 20 year love affair with vacuum
brewers, but will wander astray occasionally to test the grass on the
other side of the fence. ;)
