  • What buyers say about Presto 02811 Coffee Maker

    The flavor of coffee that is brew in this pot is superb, anyone who likes a good cup of coffee needs to return to our roots and purchase a percolator.

    The coffee made with this percolator is very good. There are a few things I always do to make great coffee, "1 I wet the basket, then add a filter which has 5 holes and is threaded through the top of the baskets rod;", and "2 I use

    The coffee flavor is very little in the way of sediment noted, even without the use of filters, so I find that I use the same amount of coffee as I did with the Drip Type Makers.

    I read a review that said he stopped buying the drip makers and instead went with the presto, but I checked on the presto and decided to follow suit, and think it makes a great cup of coffee.

    It does brew a nice cup, and it has the added bonus of keeping the coffee piping hot.

    Common Questions


    How coffee should be used in this coffee maker?


    Medium grinds work best for coffee because they plug the small holes in the basket and affect the taste of the coffee.


    Is there any plastic parts?


    The basket and interior and heating element are made of stainless steel, while the small well in the bottom of the pot is made out of aluminum, as she explained to customer service.


    Thanks for your replies, do regular basket paper filters fit, or do they come in other sizes?


    My favorite filters for this percolator are the "Disc coffee filters" which are a small paper circle with a hole in the middle, and I put a second one on top to keep them from floating out.


    The outside looks like steel, but the rougher surface inside is aluminum. Can someone tell?


    I called Presto and they didn't know, it's all stainless steel except for the small cup at the bottom that the perk tube fits into.


    Does the coffeemaker maintain the water at the correct temperature?


    The brew is very hot 195 degrees F right after the "on" light comes on.
