The GSI Outdoors Enameled Enameled 12 cup Percolator is inspired by traditional Graniteware that blends old-fashioned charm and functionality into one sturdy package. The Enameled 12 cup Percolator is built from heavy-gauge steel with a classic speckled enamel finish. Every piece has been kiln-hardened twice at 1400F to stand up to scratches and chipping. Plus, three-ply construction maximizes heat distribution for even cooking.

The enamelware pot itself is very good and it pours well. The hinge for the top seems little flimsy, though, and the percolator basket and pipe are not of the same quality as the pot. I bought this for heating water at camp and not for making coffee, so it will suit my purposes just fine.
Percolator looks nice but is made a little cheaply. The latch to hold top to base just falls off. The inside basket is also made of real thin material. However I used an old basket I had and made some good coffee holding the top on when pouring. Also NO markings to show how much water to put in!
Love the enameled look and ease of cleanup. Not happy w/the stem and basket. For a 12 cup it seems the basket should be wider. The stem is very weak and bends at the base easily. I would like to see a change in the quality of the insides. This is the coffee producer. I fear how long this stem and basket will last. It does make great coffee and it is well worth the wait. However I do believe the size of the basket is a major cause of so much grounds spilling over into the coffee. The seams all appear to be very strong and I have no other complaints....just the small size and flimsy metal of stem and basket.
I have not bee able to get outside to use this pot---I call a BOILER---but its inside use on the stove has proved very satisfactory-----As soon as my wife permits I will travel to Tennessee and and fix some campfire cowboy coffee---I will remove the perculator stuff and make a bag with coffee and egg shells-----I hope to find some snow to melt as that makes the best coffee ---formy taste.
