Revere ware drip pot?
Sorry for cross-posting. I wrote a message on the Beverages board before I noticed AWM's question here on percolators, and saw that your board is much more active. My question is similar in that I'm looking to make coffee on top of the stove:
I'm getting tired of replacing electric coffeemakers, and like the idea of just making coffee on the stove. I've considered getting a manual Melitta again (but we broke several carafes), and a metal percolator (not confident about my ability to use it).
But some of these have turned up on Ebay, and I'm intrigued.
It's an old stove top Revere Ware drip coffee system. I like the idea that it's drip but being "copper clad", unbreakable. I just can't see how to use the thing. If you heat the water in the bottom, how do you also use it as the carafe? If you're pouring the water in the top filter part, it has to start dripping out before you get it back over the bottom part. Or am I missing something?
