Has anyone found a food safe adhesive to reattach the steel collar that actually works? Thanks!
Do you mean better than the one CorningWare/Corningware used for many years that did not work and pots were recalled?
Since you do not give the model number I cannot check to see if your model was on the recall list but I remember the company stated due to the design of these pots they did not recommend repairing these models.
Since this was written in 1979 I feel sure there is a glue that may be safe to use. However, you may wish to read an article or two on the subject.
Here is basically what Consumer Products said about percolators:
"The cause of the separation problem has been traced to the epoxy sealant which was intended to fasten the handle/metal band assembly to the white glass-ceramic pot. This sealant can dry out and become brittle, causing the two parts to separate without warning.
So - are there glues made today that can safely hold these two pieces together? There are a lot of claims floating around but many buyers say some do not work and many do not say they are 'food grade' even if it says so on the website or advertisement.
Two component epoxy food grade adhesives seem to be recommended by several companies but this adhesive seems to be difficult to find other than in large quantities.
Hope you find a product that you feel will be safe to use.
You may want to go to ans Ace or True Value hardware store and ask them about this as they may have one that is certified to be safe for holding and maybe food grade also.
I can understand how you feel and I do not think anyone thought you were planning to sell but it's difficult to explore all aspects of something like this and so I try to not leave anything out because I think we would be remiss to not bring the problems out just in case someone reads this in the future and needs that information.
From your question I feel sure everyone thought your collar needed to be reglued to your coffee maker and that is the reason for all the comments about the different types of glue.
I'm sorry that no one answered your question correctly but if your coffee maker came apart (sometime in the future) wouldn't the answer be on how to reattach it? Perhaps there is another way other than regluing? I do not have any style of coffee maker in this brand anymore so I cannot remember just how the rim fit around the neck.
There are certain Epoxy's out there that are food safe, heat safe and durable . Found a few on Amazon- www.amazon.com/
Permabond has them. www.permabond.com/
