5.0 out of 5 stars Quality coffee maker, December 27, 2010
This review is from: Hario VDC-02W V60 Ceramic Coffee Dripper, White (Kitchen)
This is a well thought out product. I've had many drip coffee makers over 3 1/2 decades and this is the best. It has a very large hole in the bottom and substantial ridges on the sides so clogging is unlikely if if used properly (Melitta filters can clog as they restrict flow and coffee ground too fine can be a problem as well). It has a wide base so I use it on top of my 4 cup coffee carafe. Warm the dripper under the tap before using, then time the water flow for 3 to 5 minutes and use a fork to make sure all the grounds are wet when beginning. Pour in the middle, only washing down the coffee stuck to the walls periodically using as little water on the sides as possible. I like this dripper because I can use a standard coffee filter. The Chemex filters are very expensive. Whatever you do, consider ridding yourself of plastic coffee makers with teflon warming plates--these products are carcinogenic.

Can you post a picture of the inside of this filter, by any chance? I was wondering the depth of the ridges, and if they went all the way to the top. Thanks.

Hi, the ridges are over 1/8" wide & deep, a little thicker at the bottom of the cone and go all the way to the top. The opening at the bottom of the cone is almost 1" (from side to side). Hope that helps.

I use a similar melitta porcelain filter, because i don't like the look of a hulking coffee pot taking over my kitchen counter. but--are they really carcinogenic? why? I'd like to know so i could tell other people. thank you.

Chemicals in plastics have become suspect in the last several years. Bisphenol A (BPA) is suspect as a cancer causing agent, but other plastics are now becoming suspect as well. The triangle imbedded in plastic with a 3 or 6 are considered the most dangerous by many experts. What concerns me as much is the teflon plate on coffeemakers, particularly when very hot. If I inhale it, it seems to stay with me. I think the Chemex is a great alternative, but I also think porcelain might be a better option as well. I don't think we have all the information about porcelain, but I would hope the glass Chemex would be inert as glass is a very natural product. Plastics are so soft that chemical leaching should be of high concern, let alone that I can clearly taste the difference between the Chemex and coffee made with a plastic coffeemaker.
