What I didn’t like, was the fire burner that came with it. It seemed to be catering the aesthetic side of things rather than the practical. So I opted out and bought a gas burner which I have also reviewed on my profile ( like my name to check it out).
The glass is top notch, withstands extreme heat. But having said that, I had knocked over the top bit by accident whilst it was stood in that plastic holder and fell on the floor and smashed ( my fault).
I got fed up with having to clean, rinse and store the cloth filter in cold water in the ridge ( manufacturers recommendation to keep it clean and fresh). So I ended up buying paper filters which are so much more convenient. Although you have to buy a separate metal filter holder for that. ( can be found on o.f.f.i.c.i.a.l w.e.b s.i.t.e )
Overall, I’m very pleased with this syphon and now take a ZEN like pleasure from brewing a cuppa every morning. Happy days☕️
