Finum Brewing Basket Given the delicate tissue structure that makes up the filter, the product may be used for fine teas and coffee alike. The combination of high quality plastic and stainless steel allow the user to have an aromatic enjoyable experience while the tea lid maintains the tea warmer for a longer period of time. Once the brew is complete, the lid can simply be flipped over and used as a drip tray for the used tea filter.
Top Customer Reviews
I also tried coffee. I wasn't so impressed by this. There's a lot of coffee bean silt at the bottom and foamy residue at the top. I'll stick with paper filter for now even though I'm not thrilled by the idea of throwing away disposable paper each time. I thought about deducting one star from this but since I didn't buy it for the coffee, I left it.
Over all, it's an excellent product, design, material and built-wise. I brewed tea and coffee then tea again one after another but smell of coffee didn't seem to stay on it. Between each time, all I had to do was rinse it with water, no soap.
Now the detailed dimension I wanted to know before I bought it but I couldn't find.
Height to the underside of the top rim(this decides if the basket sits on the bottom of the cup or the top of the cup): 73mm
Foot print: 47mm in diameter, quickly tapered(about 45 degree angle) to 52mm(bottom of the mesh cylinder).
Top of the mesh cylinder: 57mm in diameter
Above the mesh cylinder but underside of the rim(this decides the minimum diameter of the cup when the basket sits on top of the cup): 62mm in diameter.
This means, if you have a cup little smaller than 62mm inside diameter at the top, the basket may not go down all the way but maybe partly goes in the cup. Under 57mm, you probably won't get a good result.
Far end of the handle to the opposite: 98mm
Length of each handle: 18mm
This means, if you have a cup between 62mm and 80mm in diameter at the top, the basket sits on the top without positioning. Between 80mm and 98mm, you'll need careful positioning of the basket or the basket will fall in the cup. Above 98mm, it'll always fall, unless the basket sits on the bottom of the cup.

It irks me about this thing, though, that both the medium and the large sizes have the same diameter. The problem for me is that I like stainless steel for my travel mugs. Since I drink both coffee and tea, stainless steel mugs let me use just one mug for both types of drinks, without worrying about stains or odor transfer. Most modern travel mugs, though, are tapered so that they fit in vehicle cup holders, and double walled stainless steel means there is air between the outer wall and the inner wall. Because of this, the large basket won't fit in smaller (12oz to 16oz) mugs of this type. Attached is a photo of this problem with my 12oz Planetary Design mug.
As you can see, the basket does go partway into the mug, but it doesn't go far enough. This means that my tea is only submerged in just a little bit of water, which defeats the purpose of using the basket instead of an infuser. Unfortunately, the medium model is too short and the large model is too wide to accommodate this style of mug (or any tall mug, since you'd have to add too much water to a necessarily wide diameter mug to get the best submergence--too much water for proper brewing of a regular amount of tea).
So the medium model isn't tall enough and the large model is too wide for use with smaller stainless steel mugs like this. Rot. I'll still give it four stars for build quality, but I have to knock a star for the poor fit in narrower containers.
