5. I'd never get a stovetop percolator...

I've left pots on the stove boiling dry too many times, and it's inexcusable for a coffeepot.

I do like percolators, but if I get another one it will be electric. I have an induction teapot that boils water in half the time my stovetop teapot does, and use it with a "single-serve" drip filter holder or a French press. The stove top one whistles loudly, which reduces the chances of boiling out, and the induction pot just shuts off when the water comes to a boil.

All this is admittedly a bit of a pain in the ass, and I'm always tempted to pull my programmable electric drip pot out of storage.
