    Gee whiz, no comments? I figured there'd be a lot who embrace the mid century stuff... This stuff is ready to go... some never used and some slightly used if ever.

    The iron is interesting, same with the waffle maker, but a percolator makes a truly terrible cup of Joe. Good luck I may take a stab at that iron.

    Well, I beg to differ on the percolator attack... IMO it's much better coffee. :coffee:French press is nice too, but drip... *yucky*

    The Universal Coffeematic percolators are about the best of the lot, and make truly excellent coffee. Vacuum pots and French Press do a somewhat better job, but a good automatic percolator will far outdo the pallid dishwater produced by most automatic drip coffeemakers.

    That is a really nice group of stuff, Forgotten Man, though it is a bit modern for my personal taste. It is not every day thhat one comes across new or nearly new appliances form the 1950's and early 1960's. they would be wonderful accessories in any ranch house kitchen.

    The percolator is the most damaging of all methods of brewing coffee. It just is. It's neat to watch/hear, and it brings back fond memories, but well, they suck. Now I'm saying that and I own two vintage units. But I don't use them. It's not right lol

    If you like it, it's fine. I was speaking from a technical, coffee-snob perspective. You can't deny the cool factor of those old percolators. I'm even tempted to buy another one of these!

    I'm certainly no coffee snob lol I buy the cheapest stuff I can find, make it strong, black, and potent.
