Mailbag: Repairing an Electric Coffee Percolator

I have an old electric percolator and I think I fried something. I made the brilliant move of plugging it in with no water in it. And,left it like that for an hour. The electricity moves thru the cord fine, and into the pot. But, I can’t get it to do anything from there. There are no fuses. I’m not sure what else to check out. Thanks

12 Cup Stainless Steel Coffee PercolatorIf you really like percolated coffee, take this opportunity to “recycle” your broken, plug-in percolator and get a spiffy, stainless steel, stovetop percolator. Works with gas or electric stoves and you can even take it camping!

Nissan Stainless Steel Coffee PressWhen I’m not swilling a cold, frosty brewski, I’m slurping a mug of hot Green Mountain Breakfast Blend coffee, perfectly brewed in my Nissan coffee press. The coffee press brewing method is vastly superior to the percolating technique because there is no risk of scalding the brew causing undesirable oxidation of the fats which give properly brewed coffee its nose-tickling aroma and buttery texture. Try it once and you’ll never go back to percolated coffee.
