I look ridiculous too because the water pot gets heavy so I'm using one arm with elbow on table to support the other arm that is doing the dripping.

Curious = is there a better way with this thing? Am I completely missing something?



We're here five more months so if I have to I'll go buy a new coffee maker, but they are kind of expensive around here so I'd prefer that there is some revelation or trick that I'm not getting.


Thanks in advance for the help!
Either buy an inexpensive brand new one and take it when you move again. Or, go to a second-hand resale shop and get a perfectly good one for probably less than $10. Many people are always 'upgrading' their coffee pots.

Then you bring it to a boil and the grounds are steeped into the water kinda like a tea bag in a cup. That is why the cannister fits inside the pot.

After probably 10min of boiling the coffee is made. you remove and toss the grounds and pour your cup of coffee

And that is going to fix the OPs problem how ??

**** NO, but you will have a heck of a mess when the glass pot shatters on the stove ! and you get 2nd or 3d degree burns. Duhhh.

Or, you could just boil water, add the coffee to the water, steep, and strain it through the infuser with or without a filter depending on how fine it is.

Not on an electric. The glass will explode all over.

You can buy a metal 'coil' to put as a buffer between your stove and pot, pr there are porous double-walled metal plates for this purpose. I think, under ten bucks. But then you're approaching the cost/hassle borderline.

The coffee pot in the picture is not a percolator that can be placed on a stove burner. I don't know what it is, but it is not a percolator.


This might be something unique to the location in which it is found (Thailand). It might be helpful to ask a local how to use it.

Does the metal piece sit on the bottom of the carafe or does it fit into the top opening? Could it be a pour over?

Looks like making sun tea or hot fresh tea is an option also


Does not appear to be stove top friendly like I thought last nite
You mean like the several people who have already explained that it was a tea infuser upthread?
