My Newest Gadget

So, I have a new little toy, er, tool in my kitchen, that I keep thinking deserves a word in blogland. This little thing is just great! Ladies, and gentlemen, (if any are reading), I give you the Faberware Stovetop Percolator.

Farberware Classic Yosemite 8-Cup Stainless Steel PercolatorNow those of you who know me well know that I am not a coffee drinker. I could be, but I choose not to be. With pregnancy and nursing being a big part of my life right now,  I decided that I don't want to torture myself. (I can drink it, I can't drink it, I can, I can't, I...) So why am I messing around with a percolator? Glad you asked. =)

I am learning to make herbal teas and healthy coffee alternatives. I recently learned that some teas, such as this one, are better made in a percolator rather than just letting them steep on the counter. Thus began my hunt for the best percolator, that didn't cost me a ton of money.

This little pot, was the best I found to meet my needs. It is an 8-Cup percolator that sits on the stove, has all stainless parts inside and has a sturdy, stainless steel body. It perks beautifully, and is only $21.99 on Amazon.com, which is where I got mine. That is a very nice price, at least in my book, and if you compare the other percolator prices, this one is an easy win. These are also part of the Amazon 4 for 3 promotion.

I am also pleased that this one sits on my stove instead of plugging in. I have more control this way and since I have a gas stove, it is more economical for me to perk on the stove than the counter anyway.

Now, just a word to the coffee drinkers. According to the reviews I read while researching, the percolator is a superior was to make coffee, as apposed to a drip coffee maker. Reviewer after review raved about the coffee made in this thing vs whatever thing they had been using.

Oh, and on the subject of stuff floating in the cup, rest at ease. I have never had floaties in my cup with this. Just fill the cup that holds the grounds/tea while it is on the counter, not over the pot.

Just had to share this with you! Oh, and these would make great Mother's Day gifts!

If you'd like to check out some great teas, head over to the BulkHerbStore.com and look at their teas.

Here is a link to the coffee alternative I have been enjoying, just in case you want to try some. =)
