Does the job and looks the part but.....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: WM Bartleet & Sons Coffee Filter Cone (Kitchen & Home)
I have an ancient plastic cone with stains that won't come out and now there is a crack so time for a replacement!
First this was heavier than expected (rightly or wrongly I associate the word 'porcelain' with fine delicate china). Anyone with arthritis in their hands or who is prone to dropping things might be better with plastic.
Anyway - being sad I compared the two with identical amounts of coffee/hot water.
The old plastic one has 4 holes and the porcelain one has 3. I found the new one actually drains a bit slower but there isn't much in it.
Flavour wise I use pretty strong coffee anyway and didn't notice any appreciable difference.
The big difference was that the plastic brew was hotter - so I recommend warming the porcelain cone before use.
For looks/hygiene - and possibly health? - I prefer the new one.
But for practicality I prefer plastic.
