Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

Dont know how to use stovetop coffee pot (corningware). To be used with heat dispering mat or directly over the gas range?

I have a corningware stove top percolator and I think it looks kind of retro and cool. It has the blue pattern on it. I am scared to use it until I know how it should be used. Can it go directly on the gas burner or does it require the use of a mat heat disperser? Would appreciate any help you could give me with this. Thanks carl

    Yes, I also have a stovetop coffee pot (corningware). I wonder if there is an old timer coffee lover who could provide some instructions? There is a stainless steel cilinder for the coffee grounds but I don't know if this needs a paper filter. The filters at the store are all cone shaped and I don't think that they have the hole in the middle for the stick. I vaguely recall someone using something like this as a kid.

    I don't know if you got your answer or not, but if not......

    Put water in the pot up to the stainless basket. Put coffee in the basket. Boil on top of the stove. The water will perk up the stem into the coffee. The longer the perk, the stronger the coffee. Good, old fashion coffee. Yum

This pot makes terrific coffee. It does not need either a filter and it can go directly oon the stove top (gas or electric). There used to be filters for these pots, but I don't think they are available anymore.

Just put water in the pot, add coffee to the basket, put on the stove and boil. The longer you let it perk, the stronger the coffee. Good coffee, sorry to see these go.

Just an after thought. If your pot has a stainless steel collar, it may have been recalled. The electric pots were because the collar would separate suddenly causing the pot to fall.

Can you put a Greek coffee maker on a glass top new coker


There are essentially two types of Coffee Maker, one where the water is heated by an immersion element (where the water is heated by electricity), and a Boiling Water Coffee maker, where you heat the pot on a stove top element either by gas or electric heat.

(If you hve one of the electric immersion ones, don't do what a famous comedy showed and place the coffee pot on the HOT SURFACE of the cooker.

While the first pot of coffee might get warm, the idea is to heat the water from the inside, then have the coffee brewed by the machine after.

Is there a MODEL or NAME on the BOTTOM of the maker?

Google or search for these things first and get back to this board if that does not help.

If I understand your question (sort of) , are you asking if a Metal pot can be placed on the top of an INDUCTION type cooktop, where the special rings Induce a current of electricity into the bottom of the fry-pan or Stock-type pot to boil water or fry items in oils.

I do not know if there is any special method used in Greece to make coffee. Please provide details, if you were not having a 'glass' cooktop.

After some research, a 'Greek' coffee maker or 'Bricki', is a stainless steel or copper pot used to boil the water and grinds together without any extra filtering.

So, the Original Poster needs to determine what the pot is made from (The type of metal), and the other part is what type of cooker element is underneath the 'glass' part of the stove.

The Test is if you turn on the element, and watch it, does it glow red underneath or not?

If it glows red, then the heating elements are embedded into the glass and the stove functions similar to a regular electric range.

If the 'glass' portion is black and does not glow red without a pot on the top of it, then it is an INDUCTION element, and the Inductor NEEDS a metal pot on top to induce a magnetic field to make the bottom of the pot warm up.

Based on the Size of the Pots shown in pictures, it may be too small to function in your particular cooker. A model of the cooker would help. The label is usually on the door frame to the oven or a logo or name near the contol knobs.

I have a small Gemco coffee pot with no directions. It says "do not use on stovetop",but does not say micro on it either. How do I use it? Pls. help.


I can't answer your question but clearly if there is any metal in the construction of the coffee pot it should not be heated in the microwave oven.

Ceramic coffee pots aren't intended to be heated in order to make the coffee. The coffee is either made in them by adding hot water or made in another utensil and poured into the coffee pot for serving and perhaps kept on a gentle hotplate in the meanwhile. Glass coffee pots are treated in a similar way.

Metal coffee pots and jugs can be used on the stovetop even though it isn't a good idea except for "cowboy coffee" when dry ground coffee is scorched in the jug before pouring on boiling water; steel is best for this.

I have used all manner of glass, ceramic and metal coffee pots and jugs on the stovetop but always using a heat diffuser - two layers of perforated steel with an airspace in between.

A coffee maker is a different thing and must be heated fairly vigorously. I find an old electric percolator is still the superior method of making coffee.

What is the advantage of gas range than gas stove?


There is much confusion about those terms, especially when used by suppliers / online webshops. A great indepth article about the issue can be found here: http://www.ebay.com/gds/What-s-the-Difference-Between-a-Stove-and-Range-/10000000177628290/g.html

Below is - imho - the most related paragraph:

'Many people use the terms oven, stove, and range interchangeably. However, buyers that plan to purchase a stove or a range should understand the purported meanings of each of these common words. First, the term stove technically refers only to the stovetop, which includes a number of burners (typically four to six) and is used for surface cooking such as boiling, frying, pan-searing, and other methods. The oven is an enclosed device that is used for baking, broiling, roasting, and other cooking methods. It employs concentrated heat within the enclosed area, which is usually delivered via heated coils in the top and the bottom of the stove. The term "range," as defined in Webster's Dictionary, actually refers to the combination of stovetop and oven into one kitchen appliance.'

Hope this helps :)

I have a 2003 Ford taurus. I keep on losing a lot of the coolant out of the resevoir cap. It percolates, then I lose it. I've replaced the cap twice. The first time it looked like the cap was...


When it is percolating, can you feel if the bottom radiator hose is hot and the top one cool? If so your thermostat could be bad. Are your cooling fans coming on at the right times and last but not least, do you have any water in your oil? That could be a bad head gasket and the percolating would be the exhaust gases bubbling back through the radiator.

The bulb on top of my Melitta Java perk Model #MEP-10 Percolator is broken and I would like to purchase another if I can.


Go to the hardware store and buy a porcelain or stainless steel cabinet knob that will fit over the hole in the percolator top. Discard the screw that comes with the knob and replace it with a shorter (maybe 3/8") stainless steel version (shorter because the top of the percolator is a lot thinner than a cabinet). Then, buy a couple of neoprene washers and a stainless steel fender washer. Prepare the percolator top by using a hammer and a small piece of wood or something to flatten out the metal around where the old percolator top used to fit. Now you can start putting things together--slip the fender washer over the screw, then one of the neoprene washers and put it through the hole in the percolator top from the inside. Then slip the other neoprene washer over the protruding screw and screw the cabinet knob down, sandwiching the whole assembly nice and tight. Finally, tape a dollar to the old plastic percolator top and throw it away so you can say you've thrown away something.

F2E1 on stove after cooking on temps of 425-450 for 20mins stove shuts off and can not restart even if power is turned off and then started. must wait for stove to cool down and then press cancel and stove...


Is the background cooling fan running? Also, look under the oven and if possible take off the kick panel and clean all the rubbish out to ensure the cooling fan can circulate air round. As a check, when you turn any part of the oven on ( Main/top/grill) the cooling fan will run and you will feel a cool draft of air coming out of the gap just above the top of the main oven door. If the fan is not running, this will cause the unit to overheat and the overheat thermostats to kick in, turning the oven off.
If the fan is not running, you will have to take the whole unit out to gain access to the back panel.
