Aluminum Attachment to Glass Percolator Top I would not have ordered one of these glass percolator tops, let alone two (which I did), had the description mentioned that there was an aluminum attachment that had to be used with the glass top. I ordered two of these glass tops at the same time as two Farberware coffee pots because Amazon recommended this product to go along with the Farberware coffee pots, which have plastic percolator tops and I know from past experience that such tops crack and break over time. When the two glass tops arrived from Goodman's, I immediately recognized them as being the same thing that I bought at Ace Hardware, but returned because of the aluminum attachment that goes inside the coffee pot lid to secure the glass top. On the actual product description that came with the tops, this aluminum ring was described as a "metal piece." On line, the Fitz-All percolator top is described as having a noncorroding aluminum ring. Both of the stove top percolators, which I ordered from Amazon at the same time are described as being stainless steel or I would not have ordered them either. I do not want my coffee perked with anything aluminum. If the glass top had to have a metal ring to enable it to be secured to the coffee pot lid, the ring should have been stainless steel--not aluminum, corroding or noncorroding. Unless you like aluminum (which may not be good for your health), don't order this top. ...more info
Better than the original The glass percolator top fits better and stays cleaner than the original top that came with my coffee percolator....more info
"FITS WHEN IT WANTS TOO." THE ADJUSTER PLATE STEEL IS VERY SOFT AND THIS NULLIFYS THE ABILITY OF THE WELL MADE CLEAR GLASS PERCOLATOR TOP TO KEEP ITS SEAT. ANOTHER PRODUCT OFFERED BY THE U.S.OF A. THAT WILL DEFINITELY KEEP THE RECESSION GOING.
P.S. ISN'T THIS THE REASON WE NEED FEEDBACK....more info
bad purchase Seller said his glass percolator tops fit all Farberware percolators. This is not true. I have 2 and they don't fit either one of my lids....more info
Improves on the Percolator's Function and Looks I previously purchased the Farberware "Yosemite" stove top percolator from Amazon. One of the percolator's reviewers mentioned purchasing this glass top because the plastic one that came with the percolator eventually wore loose due to screwing it back on and off (probably for washing underneath the plastic ring that the top fits onto). So, I purchased this item. I know, the shipping costs exceed the price of the item since at this writing, it has to be purchased from a third party seller on Amazon. However, it turned out to be well worth it for the following reasons:
l. The glass top fits flush with the metal lid of the percolator and is secured firmly underneath the lid with a metal ring that has a drain hole. Accordingly, you do not have to continually remove the top when washing the percolator. This eliminated having to take off the original plastic top and and its ring to clean underneath (which was a pain because this required several tries to catch the screw of the plastic top correctly).
2. The glass top has a concave groove around its circumference which enables one to easily remove the percolator lid. In essence, it doubles as a handle for the percolator's lid. The original plastic top was no more than a nub that often required you to remove the percolator lid by prying it off around its edges with your nails.
3. Lastly, for the fashion conscious, it does make the percolator look better. A touch of class never hurts anything. The original top and its plastic ring made it look cheap.
Hope this helps my fellow Amazon purchasers to decide whether or not to buy this top....more info
Just what I needed This fit my Faberware stove-top percolator perfectly. Thank you Amazon and Goodman's for finding the old stock of these glass replacement tops and making them available to us. I love my stove-top percolator for camping. The glass replacement top is necessary because the screw threads on the original Faberware plastic top become stripped with regular use....more info
A must have! I bought this because the plastic top that came with my Faberware stovetop percolator wore out after a year of use. I haven't used this one more than a few days, but it already seems to be a far more superior product that the plastic version. It comes with a metal fixture that keeps it snug and I'd say it should last. Just to be safe I'll keep it out of the dishwasher.
If you have a percolator and think the top is about to go, be safe and get this before it's too late. You do not want to go back to drip coffee from a plastic machine. GROSS! If you've never tried percolator coffee, do yourself a favor and give it a taste. You don't know what your missing!...more info

Disappointingly fragile It does the job, but at $8 (with shipping) it is far too expensive. Worse, the glass is too thin to hold up to normal wear and tear. Mine broke off in my hand after only a few months. The old ones were made of such thick glass they were virtually unbreakable--they eroded away like a piece of geology but didn't break.
However, I really like my Farberware Yosemite pot and its chintzy plastic dome was no longer serviceable. So, I ordered 3 of these tops (a lifetime supply, I thought) along with something else from the same merchant to cut per-unit shipping costs. The first of these shattered in mid-perk the first time I used it! Maybe the remaining two will last longer. (Or, maybe I'll die young.)
The directions say, "DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN" Apparently, "tight enough to stay on" is too much. If they put a penny's worth more glass in these things, they'd be fine.
replacement top This was just a glass replacement top for the coffee pot I bought as a gift for a friend. I am assuming she is happy with it, because she had no complants. ...more info
glass top for coffee percolators DO NOT purchase this item (as I did) for a Presto electric coffee percolator. It DOES NOT FIT. As it is inexpensive, it is not worth the postage to return it for a credit. Amazon advertized this item with electric coffee percolators with the caveat -- it fits MOST machines....more info
Clear glass percolator top I was so happy to finally be able to find a top to fit my percolator. Although a little larger than the top that broke, the fitting that came with the top was adjustable and I was ale to fit it on my pot....more info
