Chrome VITA Craft Vacuum Coffee Maker

1950’s coffee maker has a carafe base, lid for the carafe for use when serving, funnel pot, rubber gasket ( non dried- very clean) unused glass filter in original box and original operating instructions.

Stellar clean, I do doubt it was ever used. No dents, dings or stain. There is no indication as to how many cups it makes but it holds over 48 ounces in the lower pot area.


 On Google there are many short videos showing how to use a vacuum pot, even a Vita Craft like this..  Simply, the water is put in the pot, the vacuum top is inserted in the pot.  The coffee is placed in the vacuum with the glass filter.  Turn on the heat, the water bowls and like magic raises itself into the top. When the water stops flowing up, the heat is turned off and the water drips thru the coffee and into the pot.  Remove the vacuum top and put the lid on the pot.  I am told many coffee hounds find NO BETTER tasting coffee than some made in a vacuum maker

We do not wrap until sold to allow the ability to answer questions, take additional pics and combine wins to save you on shipping costs.


 Info in the shipping calculator is estimated

UPS rates are wholesale and we may be able to take $2 off if a commercial addy is used. PLEASE ask for details.



If it is incorrect, change it before we invoice you. UPS charges us a whopping $12.50 fee to correct and forward to you. We will bill your PAYPAL account for this fee should it apply.

<>DO NOT Place a bid until you have read & agree to the COMPLETE seller terms<>

<>Placing a bid is your acceptance of these terms<>

Do not pay from the First automated eBay invoice – instead we will send out a second invoice which will be the FINAL INVOICE.  Please pay from this FINAL INVOICE from SHERIDAN, as it will have exact shipping per wrapped package weight to your specific zip code. We will send you the lowest price choices that apply for your selection. We will search for the best carrier rates and bill accordingly unless you have made a special request.

If you do not have your invoice in 36 hours, please check your SPAM folder.  We send a final invoice to help prevent over/under payments.  The weight shown in the listing

is only an estimate as we pack well for shipping and that may add weight to the estimate. Package size is also factored into your actual shipping for those oversized parcels but the calculator does not allow for this extra charge the Post Office attaches. Our invoicing takes 24-72 hours so if you do not get an invoice within the first 24 hours do not despair, we have not forgotten anybody yet.  PAY PAL is the only approved payment plan.  Delivery confirmation and $.50 PER BOX/PACKAGE are added to your final invoice to help cover packing materials. Oversized boxes may have a $1.00 fee. We ship worldwide. ANYWHERE!  We use all carriers and levels of delivery.  If parcel post/1st class is LESS than the priority rate shown on the calculator, we will ship that way.  Before invoicing you, we search for the least costly shipping to your area unless you request a specific mode. Your shipping charges are never one rate to all states. Sellers billing this way are usually making money on your shipping. If you prepay before the final invoice and overpay, we refund over postage charges of $1.00 + and if your prepayment is not enough to cover postage you will be invoiced for the correct amount before the package is released. If a USPS Flat Rate box applies, we will use it. **OVERNIGHT FedEx delivery is available-ask for details.**  If your item is a RUSH, please drop us a note and we will place it at the top of the invoice list.  Payment is expected within 5 days of close of auction.  Please do not contact us on day 5 with future payment arrangements.  We are willing to work with you but we need to know right away if you need a special arrangement.  DO NOT wait until after you are invoiced and then ask for special packing or you may be re-invoiced to reflect additional weight/shipping changes to address your request.

As per Ebay Policy, your item will be insured for your protection regardless of cost, value or size.  If you wish insurance to be waived, let us know and that fee will be deducted from your invoice, lowering your shipping cost.  PA Residents add 6% tax on item cost.

Communication must go thru Ebay messaging and NOT thru our private

email. Email sent to our private email may go unnoticed for weeks.  We will combine your wins to save your shipping costs. Exceptions would be items that are fragile and large/heavy items that should not travel with fragile items. If a return is agreed upon, we do not pay for return postage for any reason.

INTERNATIONAL PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:  Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges.  These charges are the buyer's responsibility.  Please check with your Country's Customs Office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding /buying.  International shipping available ANYWHERE and may include up to a max of $5.00 fee added to the shipping costs. If insurance is not an option for your country, items will be shipped at your risk. So if you want FIRST CLASS where it may apply, there is NO tracking or insurance on the item, therefore it ships at your risk. If it is an option, your package will be insured by the sender, but it must travel at the upgraded service of Priority International. The Ebay calculator DOES NOT accurately calculate shipping charges or options so do not consider that your cost to send. Customs fees are not to be considered part of shipping costs and you should not consider customs fees when you enter your feedback.   You must wait for your final invoice to pay

PLEASE do not wait until the final day of auction to ask for a shipping quote/questions.  Your request may go unnoticed.  The post office is closed in USA on Sunday and we are not at the computer all day to address last moment concerns and may miss the chance to reply.
