Vintage Stainless Steel Drip 6 Cup Coffee Pot Bakelite Handles

American Stainless Kitchen Company Thermalloy Pluramelt Stainless

I offer a retro stainless steel drip coffee pot from the American Stainless Kitchen Company. Marked as Thermalloy Pluramelt Stainless Steel 18-8. The drip coffee pot concept is from the 1940's/1950's era prior to electric perc pots. The way this works is that the water gets boiled in a separate kettle (the bottom of pot) grounds are placed in the top resevoir between the piece wtih the stem and the screen, and when the boiling water is added to the top, it drips through the coffee down to the lower pot. For a great tasting cup of coffee, just serve in the base after it is done dripping. The lid fits both the top and bottom. Simple concept.... great coffee. No electric needed! The knob on the lid and the two side handles are bakelite.
MEASUREMENTS: 11-1/2" when entirely assembled.
CONDITION: A great find. Nice condition. All pieces are present. Some light surface scratches, interior and exterior but still attractive, shining and will probably outlast every other coffee perking mechanism you currently have! Somewhat of a brushed stainless look. None of the bakelite is chipped or cracked. The only thing to mention is that it appears the stem that covers the grounds on top of the screen, appears to have had the post rewelded.  Just guessing here.  Still is sturdy, works fine and lifts the piece off of the grinds, which is its' purpose. They knew how to make things in the first part of this century!
