A coffee maker is a necessary staple in most homes today. Having the ability to brew a cup of hot, fresh coffee after waking up in the morning can save hundreds of dollars each year and many trips to the coffee shop. It can be ready in minutes with no driving necessary. A Farberware coffee maker can be a great choice when looking for a coffee maker to add to your home.

What Is a Farberware Coffee Maker?

Farberware is a brand that creates and sells small home appliances and other kitchen tools at affordable prices. They offer coffee percolators for their line in the coffee making market. Farberware coffee makers are known to perform well. They are long lasting and make quality coffee all while being able to be purchased at an affordable price. Farberware coffee makers are easy to find as they can be purchased online or from a number of different retail stores.

Product Specs  

Farberware coffee makers come in two different models: the Farberware 12-Cup Percolator and the Farberware Classic Stainless Steel Yosemite 8-Cup Coffee Percolator. The Farberware 12-Cup Percolator is an electric version of the coffee maker that works by plugging into an outlet, and the Farberware Classic Stainless Steel Yosemite 8-Cup Coffee Percolator works by being heated on top of a stove.

These products are both coffee percolators. The Farberware 12-Cup Percolator is a type of coffee maker that works by boiling hot water and allowing the coffee grounds to be continuously passed through by the hot water. This allows the coffee grounds to be heated to higher temperatures than other types of coffee making methods.

Coffee percolators allow for a rich and smooth tasting coffee that is arguably more flavorful than coffee made through other methods. Another great feature of these coffee percolators is that they are compact. They are used on the stove or by plugging into an outlet if they're the electric kind, and can then be stored in a cupboard so they do not take up any counter space like other types of coffee makers do.

Coffee percolators are also easy to use. They are simply used by adding coffee grounds and water and then boiling the water. The percolator itself can then be used to store the hot coffee on the stove or near where the coffee drinker is sitting. Its stainless steel design keeps the coffee hot and fresh, unlike typical glass coffee pots from other types of coffee making devices.

Farberware offers two sizes to choose from for its stove-top percolators. They have a smaller 8-cup option or a larger 12-cup option. This allows the user to have the size they desire for their coffee making needs.


Farberware coffee makers are available at a reasonable price. The smaller Farberware Classic Stainless Steel Yosemite 8-Cup Coffee Percolator is available for about $25 and the larger Farberware 12-Cup Percolator is available for about $35.

After looking into different options for devices that allow coffee makers to brew coffee in the comfort and convenience of their own home, it is clear that choosing the right coffee maker is an important task. We believe that the Farberware 12-Cup Percolator is a great choice. After reviewing this product alongside its competition, we feel comfortable ranking this Farberware coffee maker with 5 out of 5 stars.

The Farberware 12-Cup Percolator is set apart from its competition firstly because it is an affordable yet easy-to-use device. It comes at the low price of around $35. The user simply needs to add water and coffee and plug the device into an outlet. We like that it's electric because it doesn't require supervision like coffee that boils on the stove does. It is a device that can be turned on and walked away from. It also stands out because of its speed. Not many coffee makers can produce high-quality coffee in just one minute's time.

With that being said, the coffee this machine brews truly is high quality. The percolating method gives this device the ability to create coffee with a rich and smooth taste. Typically, this quality of coffee can only be found in a coffee shop or with an expensive at-home brewing device. With the Farberware 12-Cup Percolator, however, this great coffee quality can be achieved at home with an affordable device.

We also like its large cup capacity. This is a product that can be used on a daily basis for a family's morning coffee, but it can also be used in a larger group setting while entertaining guests or even in a kitchen at an office.

Overall, we believe that this Farberware coffee maker is a great choice for a device to brew at-home coffee. It is affordable, fast, easy to use, and produces high-quality coffee. We hope that our research and review will help to guide you in your decision-making process while searching for an at-home coffee maker.
