FCP-412 WASTE OF MONEY - Bring back the FCP-512

Pros:Nice-looking.

Cons:No auto-shutoff, noisy, doesn't pour evenly not worth the price.

The Bottom Line: Would not recommend the Farberware FCP-412.  Not up to Farberware's quality standards.  Noisy. Does not pour evenly.


I am a Farberware junkie....Have always loved Farberware's quality.  We have owned three of the FCP-512 cordless Millenium percolators and absolutely LOVED them.  We have one in our RV and the other two basically just wore out from heavy use, however served us well during it's lengthy life span!   We went to replace the last 512 with a new one the end of December 2009  and learned that they have been discontinued by Farberware and replaced with the FCP-412!  Paid $85.00 for it, so figured it would give us the wonderful service the 512 did!  Wrong!!!  It is a piece of junk to put it bluntly!!!  First of all, we miss the cordless convenience, the 412 is not cordless and we are not happy with that.  Secondly, the 512 had an auto shut-off, the 412 does not, so if you forget to unplug it, it will be on all day long!!!  Not good!   Thirdly, the 512 was so quiet..hardly knew it was brewing...the 412 sounds like the space shuttle is launching...loud and clatters terribly.    The lid fits so tight that it's often very difficult to remove, therefore a lot of stress is put on the knob to get a grip to pull it off.  I'm sure the knob will either break off or come loose with time...   Lastly, it does not pour easily.  It pours slowly and sporadically...by that I mean that while you're pouring a cup of coffee, it may start out slowly and then all of a sudden a big burst of coffee comes from the spout unexpectedly or vice versa...

In a nutshell, this percolator is not worth the $85.00 we paid for it!!  It is not worth $10.00 in my opinion!  I don't know what's happened to Farberware's quality, but if this percolator is representative of it, then I have lost faith in the company completely.  I wish Farberware would consider bringing back the 512....it was a wonderful percolator, coffee was delicious brewed in it, cordless feature was excellent, and the auto shut-off was a great safety feature.
