This coffee maker brews up to twelve cups of coffee at a cup-a-minute rate, which it then keeps at a constant, piping-hot serving temperature. An indicator light in the base announces when the coffee is ready. The inner fixtures--the filter basket and perk tube--are also made of stainless steel, rather than the more common (and less durable) aluminum. The power cord is removable to make storage simple.
Before cleaning the coffee maker, unplug the unit and allow it to cool completely. Wash the coffee maker with warm, sudsy water and dry it thoroughly; it is not immersible. To preserve the gloss of the stainless steel, do not use steel wool or harsh, abrasive cleansers. The perk spout and filter basket can be cleaned with a brush or pipe cleaner. If necessary, coffee stain remover can be used periodically on the interior surface. The coffee maker measures 10 by 5 by 13 inches (including handle, lid, and spout). Presto guarantees this product with a one-year limited warranty. A simple instruction sheet is enclosed.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the appropriate grind for this coffee maker?
I think a medium grind works best. Too fine a grind will plug the very small holes in the basket and affect the taste of the coffee and the performance of the percolator.
Is there an auto shut off
Put it on a timer. We did and it starts about 6:15 and shuts off at 10:00. Love it.
Do regular #4 basket paper filters fit, or some other size? (Thanks one and all for your replies.)
I use the 8-12 cup basket style filters. They fit just fine, but I do have to cut a slit in the center of the filter in order for it to fit over the percolating stem. It just takes a second to do with a pair of scissors. I cut a small X shape and thats all there is to it.
