Wonderful Coffee Pot, Perked Coffee is the BEST
5 Star Review   By friend on Home Depot - Apr 2, 2013   

We are VERY pleased with this Farberware Coffee Maker. Some say it has caused problems... NOT TRUE... just need to keep the perking parts clean each time. Received in just a few days!!! Great service from Home Depot. Definitely will use them again for my shopping.

Love the coffee. It didn't last more than 2 years
2 Star Review     

Strengths: fast, good tasting coffee

Weakness: have to use more coffee or it will be on the weak side

Have had a 4 cup for 8 years and we still use it every day. Bought a 8 cup for my daughter and myself. Hers lasted 1&1/2 years and mine lasted 2 years. I'm looking into a good drip coffee maker because of this fact Before the 4 cup had another 4 cup and it lasted for 5 years. Maybe the problem is with the larger capacity? My father had both sizes and they lasted. Maybe quality control fell asleep or looked the other way.

Coffee maker
1 Star Review   Home Depot   

I own three of these and they are all junk they lasted about a year and then they would not heat or perk, so save your money and buy another one,

Still A Good Value
4 Star Review   By TeePeeB on Home Depot - May 15, 2012   

I understand this pot is now made in China and will not last as long as the one that was made in the USA, but it is still a very fast, hot pot. At least our coffee is quickly made and very hot.

A throw-away percolator?
2 Star Review   By blouie2 on Home Depot - May 1, 2012   

This percolator is quick, looks nice, makes good coffee quickly and easy to clean. Found life span of this Farberware percolator to be much shorter than anticipated. Thermostate failed this nice looking, clean percolator but / and / or Farberware will not / cannot provide new thermostate to replace failed unit. Only option is to purchase another new coffee percolator. Warrantee is only 12 months. Very short unless failures are commonly expected by Farberware.

Strengths: faberware name and 8 cup coffee maker

Weakness: lasts only a couple of years (2)warranty is one year

first the cord broke in the first six months then in the second year it stopped perking.looked on web site for this problem and found many complaints of the same issue

If made in USA Quality would probably be 5 stars
5 Star Review   By BJ04 on Home Depot - Apr 3, 2012   

We have used this perc for years. Keep one in stock as well as parts. Recently, one expired and could not be resuscitated, hence the need for a new backup. HD pricing was best we found, (we are partial to HD anyway), and delivery was quick.

Low quality product made in China
1 Star Review   By Stef on Home Depot - Mar 30, 2012   

I had a Farberware coffee maker that lasted twelve years. I bought a new one (made in China) two years ago that lasted 15 months. After that, I purchased another one (fast brew made in China) it lasted six months. After brewing coffee I end up with yellowish warm water. I'm very disappointed with a lot of products coming out of China. It is carbage. I hope American companies wake up and realize that in order to have quality products, is to start manufacturing products here in the USA.

This product was not as good as I anticipated.
3 Star Review   By Coffeelover on Home Depot - Jan 31, 2012   

This was my first percolator. I went through quite a bit of study from internet; and bought this one based on what I read from other reviews. I tried it; result was not as good as described. Yes, it was fast; but hassle in cleaning the equipment everytime after brewing. The coffee was no better than what I could get from a drip type coffee machine. I finally decided to return it.

Quality Check
4 Star Review   By Weebles on Home Depot - Jan 24, 2012   

I am a big fan of Faberware products however the quality is going down. I had the exact same percolator that quit after 3 years. The replacement I ordered works well but I can tell quality is no longer number one for Faberware. The stainless steel is much thinner. This lets me know that I can no longer purchase their pots and pans. The purcolator works just as well as the one that quit, but I wonder if this one will even make it 3 years.

very difficult to remove cover
2 Star Review   By Robert on Home Depot - Jan 10, 2012   

my parents used Farberware for years. This is our fourth and last Farberware percolator. Each new one seems to be of lessor quality than the previous.

Very fast brew time.
2 Star Review   By Mikeyg on Home Depot - Jan 3, 2012   

I don't like this product because the fast brew feature takes away from the brewing time amd therefore negatively effects the taste of the coffee. There is no flavor value from the coffee.

Instant coffee users best friend
4 Star Review   By oldfixerupper on Home Depot - Jan 6, 2010   

I do not understand why the manufacturers do not look at the sales of instant coffee. I have found this one the perfect product for my instant coffee. Heats quickly...maintains heat... Can be used with drip coffee....and instant coffee by the cup. No need to fill or use all the coffed grounds or packages to make two cups of coffee. This one does it very well. Again...the manufacturers are blind to the many instant coffee users...quick.. no waste... Thanks for at least one Millenium Automatic Stainless Steel 8-Cup Percolator The Millenium Automatic Percolator provides simplicity to the consumer through a 1-step brewing process. This incredibly fast unit brews 2-8 cups, one minute per cup.

farberware 8 cup electro- perk
5 Star Review   By member digia4 - Nov 8, 2008   

Strengths: Great tasting coffee,easy to use, convienient size

This 8 cup farberware coffeemaker has been around for many years, with good reason. Having used many different coffeemakers, I always come back to this electro-perculator. The coffee is always hot and is served at just the right temperature. It is simple to use and comes in a variety of sizes. For a simply delicious taste every time, this is the one to buy.

Best coffee machine available
5 Star Review   By member serguzest - May 24, 2008   

Strengths: Brews coffee really hot. No plastic parts. Stainless steel permanent filter.

Weakness: No on/off button. No lights/indicators about its working state.

I was looking for a coffee machine that: * Brews coffee really hot (for best taste, coffee must be brewed around 200F). * No plastic parts (hot water and plastic should not mix for health reasons). * Non plastic permanent filter. * Under $100. This is the coffee machine that has all of the above. And it is only $30 (after coupon). I wish it had an on/off button and a light indicator. You have to unplug it, and many times I forgot it plugged. I was really surprised for those who complain about 2 year life. This is not a $200 product that will last lifetime. Next time buy these things with a good credit card like Amex or gold/platinium Visa/Mastercard. These cards extend the warrany by one year.

Perculator
1 Star Review   By Perculator FCP280 on Buydig.com - Nov 12, 2007   

Strengths: fast brewing and good tasting coffee

Weakness: After about 2 years it no longer keeps the coffee hot

It is very fast to brew and love the taste of the coffee, but they never last over two years. I am on my last one now and will find another brand
