Topic: Norelco 10 (2 msgs / 50 lines)
1) From: MSMB
I found an old Norelco 10 in my office and I brought it home with me to try
out.  It certainly gets the water hot enough.  In fact it is the hottest I
have had; more so than my Melitta Clarity, my Presto Scandinavian and pour
over drip.  I am not sure I have all of the pieces though.  There is a
basket that takes Dixie cup style filters.  I am pretty sure that the basket
is original since it fits perfectly.  There is no cover over the basket,
however, but unless that is supposed to somehow disperse the water I don't
see that it matters.  The area for the coffee in the basket is rather small.
So even though there is no dispersion that I can see, the water fills the
basket in a single flow and covers the coffee.  Ultimately, it seems to make
pretty good coffee. I am just curious if I am missing a lid (there is also
no lid for the carafe after the coffee is made) or if with a lid going uot
to the very top of the device and fitting in securely it sprays the water
over the coffee.
Also, is the Norelco 12 the same thing, only bigger?  There is something I
have seen called a Norelco 12 Dial a Brew that looks to be the same?  Anyone
know?

My brothers and sisters and I get together in the summer at the family
home in Wisconsin, and while there still use my mother's old Norelco
drip coffee maker from the 1970s. I tried to find a photo of it using
Google Images but no luck (it was interesting though that the search
words "norelco drip coffee" in Google Images turned up "Hot Surf
Chick" standing next to her surfboard...).
Anyway, it's a really good drip coffee machine, still gets very hot. I
don't know the model number etc. The basket fits right into the top of
the carafe. There is a lid, and it does disperse the water, which then
just gravity feeds through the holes in the lid. You can adjust the
grind to slow the "drip" down enough that the grinds steep in the
water.
