Topic: New Electric Vac Pot (6 msgs / 147 lines)
1) From: Manny
I just found a new Electric Vac Pot at this website:http://store.coffeesiphons.com/brewers/JWI-CSE6.htmI have nothing to do with the above business, but was wondering if any
of you out there have one or have tried one? It looks very interesting,
Kind of like a combo between the Bodum eSantos and a Nicro vac pot. 
I love using my Bodum mini-eSantos every day. I find it very convinent
and quick in the morning, but the Plastic Construction makes me wonder
about its longevity. 
I know the last thing some of us need is another piece of coffee
equipment but I really like the look of this unit... so I may just
indulge. Wonder if it is something that Tom may consider carrying?
Cheers
Manny

Thanks for the link, Manny.
It looks like it might _possibly_ be my ideal travel vac-pot, but it
doesn't say anything about size, capacity, etc.  I've always been very
skeptical of marketers that list a product with absolutely no details
or specs beyond the rave "glossy" "description".  I guess it might be
worth an e-mail to find out, though...

Manny,
It looks like an upgrade (or should I say modernized) Sunbeam 30 series.
The Sunbeams cost in the neighborhood of $50.00 on E-Bay.  I would say it is
a little cheaper and better than a drip.  However, I doubt there is much of
a warranty on a Sunbeam anymore!  However, I have two of them and they get
used almost on a daily basis.

Les, 
I've turned into a bit of a Vac Pot nut over the last little while. I keep hunting for them at Junk Shops and Flea Markets. I've got a few of the older electrics, Sunbeam C30, C20, Westinghouse, Silex, Cory etc. I Love using the mini eSantos, the thing is so easy in the mornings. Tend to use the older ones more as display items as I love the design of them. Here's a link to a page I put with a bunch of loose pics I've snapped of my "Coffee Junk".http://members.rogers.com/m.machado/<Snip>

Good looking Pics!

I e-mailed the company and they told me the pot is just under 10"
tall, assembled, and has a base diameter of 4.5".  It makes 2-7 cups.
There is no adjustment on it for brew time/coffee strength, other than
the normal finer ground/stir more/use more coffee drill, all of which
was carefully explained in the response I got...
I think I'm going to order one for travelling, since it seems smaller
than any other I've seen.  If they'll ship it out fast, I'll even test
it this week...
