Nothing says camping quite like drip coffee from an old fashioned drip pot, not a percolator. I found a 64 year old beauty last week, a WestBend Lifetime 18-8 stainless steel 10 cup drip coffee pot. This thing looks as good as the day it was made. Wow what a score. No doubt I can pass this down to my grandkids. Also, made in the USA!

Classic! I am not sure about the real state it would take up in the cook box. A small problem to solve for sure.

Nice... mine isn't as fancy, but it does a good job.

The one I have is a Comet 4 cup circa sometime in tge '50s - '60s. Found it in a junk shop about 15 years ago for less than $1.
