Fantastic Coffee Maker,
This review is from: Coffee Master 5-Cup Syphon / Vacuum Glass Coffee Maker
After breaking my old Chemex paper filter maker I decided to check out this one due to the cheap pricing. It comes with step-by-step instructions making it easy to figure out. This method is much quicker than my old paper filter and the coffee is hotter and generally better; as the material filter removes less from the coffee.
The only negatives are the need for methylated spirits to fuel the burner and slightly fiddly cleaning. This is not too bad as spirits are fairly cheap and I no longer need to buy paper filters.
There's more cleaning than in a filter paper coffee maker, but the coffee from this coffee maker is certainly worth it.

Do you get some meths included with the item ? And can you not just use a gas stove hub on low look at this video http://goo.gl/f7ujq

Sorry for the late reply. You are right with both of your comments. Gas stove top flames work just as well, and saves you buying the meths. I've been using the Aeropress coffee maker a lot these days; if you have not used it or heard of it before, I really recommend it. Extremely fast, almost no mess, and, if I dare say so, possibly a better cup of coffee. The filter papers are incredibly cheap as well.
