Review of the Presto 02822 6-Cup Stainless Steel Electric Percolator Coffee Pot

Updated on October 20, 2019

Review of Presto 02822 6-cup Electric Coffee Percolator

Looking for a review of the Presto 02822 6-cup Electric Coffee Percolator to help you decide whether to buy? Well, if you are a coffee lover and looking for a good old fashioned piping hot delicious cup of coffee, whether at home or on vacation, this Presto 02822 6-cup Electric Coffee Percolator may be the one for you

We originally purchased a stove top percolator when we were tired of the hot (but not piping hot) coffee that both Keurig and drip coffee makers delivered. When we discovered how delicious percolated coffee was, we went in search of an electric one that we could take with us as we traveled. Voila - enter the Presto 02822 6-cup Electric Coffee Percolator!

The Presto 02822 6-cup Electric Coffee Percolator brews 2-6 cups of delicious coffee in less than 5 minutes and there’s no guessing if it’s ready because the “ready to serve” indicator light alerts you when it’s COFFEE TIME! It even keeps it warm, so your second (or third) cup is just as hot and delicious as your first.

Percolator Coffee vs. Coffee Pods

Because each member of our family tends to drink 2 (or more) cups of coffee each and every day, our Keurig coffee pod expenses were out of control. Sure, coffee pods are super convenient, but can get so expensive when you want 2, 3 or 4 cups of coffee a day!

And when brewing coffee with a Keurig, there's the wait. When family comes to visit, or a neighbor stops by for coffee, you can only "brew" one cup of coffee at a time. By the time the fourth family member gets their coffee pod coffee, the others are done, or worse yet, want more! Keurig coffee just didn't fit our coffee needs (or our coffee budget).

Perfect for Home or for Use While You Travel

Perhaps one of the best features of the Presto 02822 6-cup Electric Coffee Percolator is that it is so portable.

Since we travel a lot, we love the fact that we no longer have to imbibe in the mediocre hotel room coffee. No siree! Having yummy coffee in your hotel room, just like you have it at home, makes it more like…more like…well…home.

Also, it can be used to boil water for tea, oatmeal, or even instant soup or noodles. Now I know what you’re thinking, the last thing you say to your honey when you’re on vacation is “hey…let’s have Cup-O-Noodles for dinner.” But you know, as well as I do, that there have been many a time you come back from site seeing only to discover there are no restaurants open. Hmm. What to do? Ramen noodles start sounding pretty darn good….

Additional Pros and Cons of the Presto 02822 6-cup Electric Coffee Maker

Ok, there are a couple more things I should mention, there’s a stay cool handle and a cool to the touch knob, meaning hassle free pouring. Also, the electrical cord is detachable (another thing that makes it easier to pack). And because it is stainless steel, it cleans up beautifully. If there was one thing I would say I would improve, it would be to make the electrical cord longer, but I suppose that is more of a safety issue.

Finally, we recently moved into a VERY small apartment. Because the Presto 02822 6-cup Electric Coffee Percolator is compact, it clearly fit in well with our new digs. Plus, it's easily put away when not in use. Winner, winner!
