Topic: Cory Vac Pot (4 msgs / 61 lines)
1) From: Laura Micucci
I saw thishttp://baharris.org/coffee/Vintage/CoryCustom.jpgpot at a thrift
store yesterday for $20.  Anyone know if it's worth it?  I have a cory
gasketless and I love it.  I was wondering how the electric ones work.  I
will be giving it to a friend (once I try it out of course).

Laura,
I see the electric vac pots at the thrift stores every once and awhile
but they are usually under $20. With price aside, the main issue of
the electric versions of these older vac pots is that the heating
coils remain warm even after the coffee travels back down from the
top. And some models appear to only have an on off switch while others
you can adjust temperature on. I prefer an adjustable temperature as I
find with my stove top vac pots that I am able to experiment with
grind, temperature, and "gurgling" time between coffees.
This model does look nice, but I would probably wait to find a stove
top or alcohol lamp version. But I cannot write it off completely, for
all I know, it still makes amazing coffee. I just find I enjoy manual
coffee brewing methods more than automatic ones!

Laura,
Check the seal on the upper bowl - if it is plaible and not cracked, then
the vacpot is worth more like $30-40 - buy it now....  $20 is still a
reasonable price to buy it - no shipping, etc.
