Royal Rochester Refurbished Coffee Percolator 4-8 Cup 1920s


1922 and Robeson merged with Rochester in upstate New York forming the Robeson-Rochester Manufacturing Co. Robeson made knives and Rochester was into pots and kettles. After the merger they started making more coffee pots with a lot of style and great metalworking. Then they added electricity to their engineering and started making very stylish and well engineered waffle irons and other home appliances. This coffee pot is one of their most stylish and well engineered. The user must unplug it to stop percolation since they did not have access to thermostats (they were not invented until 1929) but they developed a easy reset-able fuse link. You just turn it upside down and shake it downward! It suffers from poor chroming which is typical of the time frame but that doesn't affect any usefulness and its shape is very stylish.
It is made from copper, nickel plated and chrome plated. The handle is wood and the perk parts are aluminum. It is now in great usable condition and could be used daily if you like. It perks really quick due to the heat/pump design. The glass perk top is Pyrex, 8 faceted and easily shows the perk progress.
Model E346, D-25. 400 watts, 110 VAC. I include a brand new 6 foot cord, instructions for use and cleaning and a cleaning brush.
It is 9 3/4 inches tall, 9 3/4 inches spout to handle and 5 inches wide at widest point.

All items come with complete use and care instructions.
All items come with cords.
All cords are either new or old style that have been tested and refurbished.

What are materials

Waffle grids are cast aluminum.
Toasters are metal
Coffee pots vary and I always tell you the materials.

How will I keep it working and will it work?

Everything I sell is refurbished and in like new working order.
If something goes wrong, I will fix it so its like a lifetime (mine LOL) warranty.

Is it safe?

It will be as safe or safer than the original manufacturer when it was made. Many times it is safer since I remove and replace asbestos wiring and unsafe cords. Note: There are some items I no longer refurbish because they cannot be made safe. I check every item for stray voltage and many times it is too high so that unit is scrapped.

What does Restored and Rebuilt Mean?

It means its been re-wired with modern high heat resistant wire, thermostats re-set, gunk, grease, stains have been removed. Restored to original factory specifications. Cords and wiring safe. All components checked for safety. Everything back to very good to mint condition nothing less.
