Buy an antique graniteware coffee pot to add to your collection. The restored and refinished enamel of some of these coffee pots shine with a deep luster that ensures they will look beautiful on display in your home.
These coffee pots are enameled metal and are designed to sit directly on the stovetop or in the campfire to boil coffee.
The more modern versions have been created based on the original concept with additional features such as a percolator giving you an added option from the traditional straight brewed coffee.
The traditional boiler coffee pots have been made to be used on campfires as well as on indoor stovetops and gas rings. If you are looking for one for use when you go camping and you expect to place the pot directly in the fire, you should try to get one that has a wire handle at the top. (The example above is the GSI Outdoors 36 Cup Coffee Boiler).
This will allow you to more easily pick the coffee pot out of the fire. This wire handle also gives you the option of hanging the pot over the fire rather than sitting in it.
Considerations When Buying a Camp Fire Coffee Pot
If you are expressly looking for a graniteware coffee pot for use when you go camping you might want to consider the following factors:
- A coffee pot with a plastic handle will not work
- Buy a straight coffee boiler pot rather than a percolator
- Look for a larger pot so that you can boil water for uses other than making coffee. When you're out camping there will be other occasions apart from making a coffee where a decent amount of hot water will be needed
Making Coffee Using A Graniteware Percolator Coffee Pot
Using a graniteware percolator coffee pot to make coffee is simplicity itself and can be done in just a few simple steps:
- Add water to the pot so that it fills to the point just below the basket
- Put the basket and stem into the pot
- Add the coffee to the basket at the rate of 2 tablespoons of coffee for each cup of water
- Leave the pot on the heat until the water boils and then turn off the heat. (Move the pot to the edge of the fire if you’re making coffee on a campfire)
- Allow the coffee to percolate for between 5 to 10 minutes.
- Remove the basket from the pot and discard the coffee grounds.
- Your coffee is ready to be enjoyed.
Possible Problems With A Graniteware Coffee Pot
When looking to buy a graniteware coffee pot, there are a few possible problem areas that should be viewed closely. Although these pots are fairly simple pieces of equipment they are provided by a range of manufacturers and are also available at a variety of price points. Clearly some pots are made to be more robust than others so it pays to look for obvious points where a problem may be found.
- Look for chips in the enamel. One of the common complaints that people have about their new enamel coffee pot is the existence of chips in the surface, sometimes quite deep ones. Not only is this an aesthetic issue but it will also affect the performance of the pot and allow rust to set it.
- The seam must be watertight. This might appear to be an obvious factor for a coffee pot, but the underlying material is steel and there is a seam running down the side of the pot that can sometimes leak. This is clearly going to be a problem and should be identified early and the pot sent back for a replacement.
- The basket and stem of a percolator should be made of sturdy material. These are the “moving parts” of the pot and are going to come in for some wear and tear as the basket is filled with coffee and then removed and emptied. Some baskets are made of thin and flimsy metal and have a tendency to wear and prone to failure.
- Lightweight, thin metal coffee pots are not as robust. The older vintage enamel coffee pots (if you can find them) were made from thick sheets of metal and designed to last virtually forever. If you are looking for a pot that will give you a higher than average life you should concentrate on one that is heavier.
