It probably depends on how often and how much coffee you
drink. We recently got a Keurig that makes one cup at a time. It suits us well
because there is just the two of us, so a whole pot of coffee is often too
much. It's also really easy to make a cup of coffee because you pop a
pre-measured cup of grounds into the machine, press a button, and voila,
coffee--no measuring grounds, no filters, no clean-up. So choose a coffee machine as per your needs.
You have a China pot. Take the center screw out of the base, Pry it apart very slowley . The pot has 2 or 3 wires that go to thee main heating element. you will need a neddle nose pliers.Detach the wires on the main unit and you will be able to work on the base. Parts are available on eBay
I thoroughly cleaned my 4-cup percolator by brewing a couple of pots of plain white vinegar and scrubbing the build-up from the bottom of the pot (and running a couple of plain water brews through the pot after all the cleaning). The percolator now brews hot, strong coffee again!
I have the same problem with my Valira expresso coffee maker. If the manufacturer does not supply extra gaskets, as they should, when the coffee maker is purchased, forget about trying to purchase them. Instead, bring the broken seal to a hardware store and find material to use, using the old one as a template. Most hardware stores have assorted sizes of round gasket that can be adapted.
