Not a genuine LaCafetiere beaker
, 21 May 2008
This review is from: La Cafetiere Cup Glass Replacement Beaker Genuine Part, Size 3 (Kitchen & Home)
Given that the price (including postage) is less than half what you'd pay for a LaCafetiere 3-cup beaker anywhere else, it didn't come as a great surprise that this wasn't a genuine "LaCafetiere" beaker (which would be LaCafetiere part number C20103). The product-image (lifted from the LaCafetiere webpage) is somewhat misleading.
Instead, your £3 (including postage) buys what appears to be a plain "Pyrex"-branded 400ml tall-form laboratory-beaker, wrapped in bubble-wrap and supplied in brown corrugated-cardboard box. This is basically a functional replacement although my sample was fractionally undersized, making it a slightly loose fit in the chrome LaCafetiere body.
As a low-cost short-term fix to enable me to brew coffee, it does the job. But it's a bit disappointing really.
Aside from not having the LaCafetiere branding, I'd need to add a thin plastic shim between the beaker and the chrome frame to enable me to tighten it sufficiently to ensure the beaker doesn't slip out when pouring.
