Maybe I'm being unfair with this low rating but I think something is amiss in fulfillment of this item....
on September 5, 2013
When I received this item, I was a bit puzzled as it had 4 holes and a sticker on the bottom that said "HIC China". Some research shows that what I received was actually the HIC Porcelain Filter Cone which is available through Amazon for $2 or $3 less than this item. What I received looks well make and I feel it will do a good enough job but looking at other recent reviews of the Cilio Cone, I think others are also receiving the wrong item as they are describing a cup made in China with 4 holes instead of 1 hole. Maybe they just haven't figured out yet they were sent the wrong item. I feel bad about the one star rating but I think it important to grab perspective buyer's attention that they may not get what they are ordering. The HIC brand may well be fine but order it on it's page and save $2 or $3.
EDIT to add: The box this holder was packed in was marked with the brand Cillo but the sticker on the holder itself said "HIC".
