This silly-looking pot doesn't go with anything in my kitchen, which is black and chrome, but I needed a replacement for my Mr Coffee clone in a hurry. I didn't want the same type I was replacing, which died after one year, and this pot was about all I could find in my price range.
I really like this perculater, and I love the consistency of the coffee each morning. It's called a 5 cup. I drink two large mugs, so I don't know exactly how much it holds. Now, for the downside: the cord is much too short; the pot must be carried to the sink for adding water; the opening to add water is directly in liner=e with the handle, and that makes it clumsy; the water level bubbles are difficult to see; there is no power indicator light. I use the carafe from my old 4 cup pot, and that's how I measure and pour water. When I pour my second mug, I turn off the pot and remove the lid. That way I know I turned it off when I look later.
For these reasons, I cannot give 5 stars. I would certainly buy this type of coffee maker again It reminds me of my mother's perculator but without the metalic taste.
