How to Use an Old Pyrex Glass Coffee Maker

The Pyrex Glass Coffee Maker is a classic way to make coffee and a great find for vintage enthusiasts. Making coffee with a Pyrex can be a rewarding experience, plus you get to enjoy that classic vintage style. If you’re lucky enough to find a Pyrex coffee maker, here are some tips for using it.


  • 1 Pyrex glass coffee maker
  • 12 oz. coffee grounds of your choice
  • 3 quarts cold water


  1. Take out your Pyrex coffee maker and make sure it is clean. Pour in the coffee grounds.
  2. Fill the Pyrex with cold water. Don’t fill it too much, just enough to get the grounds moist. Make sure that all the grounds are covered.
  3. Put the lid on the Pyrex and make sure it is securely in place.
  4. Place the Pyrex on the heat source. It is important that you keep a close eye on the Pyrex because the glass can shatter if it gets too hot. Turn the heat down to medium-low.
  5. Allow the Pyrex to percolate for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Once the coffee is done percolating turn off the heat and allow it to cool for a few minutes.
  7. Carefully pour the coffee into your cup and enjoy the classic taste of Pyrex-brewed coffee.


  • Always make sure that the lid is secure on the Pyrex before you place it on the heat source.
  • Be sure not to overfill the Pyrex, as this can cause the glass to crack or shatter.
  • Keep a close eye on the percolation process and adjust the heat source accordingly to prevent the glass from breaking.

Using a classic Pyrex Glass Coffee Maker is an enjoyable way to make great-tasting coffee. With just a few simple steps you can make an excellent cup of coffee with your Pyrex. Enjoy your cup of vintage-style coffee!
