I was at a local thrift store yesterday. I found this what looked like a =
drip pot, I looked it over and at just 1 dollar I bought it and took it =
home . After a through cleaning, I took a good look at it. It has a =
typical glass carafe and a hard plastic Basket that sits on top of the =
carafe, and the basket has screened filter basket the attaches to the =
large plastic basket. the latter has a screen a small round about the =
size of a quarter and at the other side the side that the permafilter =
attaches to is a metal bulb like think that has a two holes, 
As it turns out you put the ground coffee in the permafilter. attach it =
to Water chamber ( the plastic Basket) and sit the unit on top of the =
carafe and pure hot water in it and it drips through into the =
permafilter and ground coffee, It has a slow extraction much slower then =
other drip pots. I have to experiment with amounts and grind to get the =
right finished product. I thought it was nice and have never seen such a =
pot, Have any of the list members come across one of these manual pour =
Amana pots. By the way it has metal strip in the bottom of the water =
basket that is only activate with hot water, it will not drip if you put =
cold water in it. It never ceased to amaze me at what you can find =
browsing the thrift store.

I think what you stumbled upon is a microwave coffee brewer - Amana was a BIG name in microwaves 15-20 years ago.  You'd put cold water up top, nuke it until the water got hot, and the thermostatically controled valve would open and let the water into the grounds, all automatically.
