This cone has three holes in the bottom, a feature which I have come to see doesn't make much difference. Apparently, how fine the coffee is ground determines the flow rate more than the number of holes. Once the coffee is through the filter paper, it is going to flow at a steady rate through one hole or three.
This cone is a little heavy, but I feel that it will last a long time. The handle is nice and thick.
I bought this item after trying the more expensive Frieling/Cilo and having bad luck with two of them. (You can see my review on that item's page.)
Using a cone of any type seems to make better coffee than the many drip machines I've tried over the years. You can control the temperature and flow of the water exactly the way you want.
UPDATE: Have had this now over two months, using it twice every day. Love it. Good, solid, well balanced, and very handy.
- Weight and thickness: the HIC is significantly heavier and thicker than the Frieling Cilio. I like the lighter weight of the other one.
- Number of drain holes: HIC has three, Frieling Cilio has one larger one. No noticeable difference in draining time.
- Outer diameter of bottom rim: this is the ring that helps keeps the filter holder in place on your carafe. Frieling Cilio has a smaller diameter (2 7/16") vs. HIC (2 3/4"). My carafe opening diameter is also 2 3/4" which makes the HIC very awkward and unsteady. Your carafe needs to have a larger diameter opening than the bottom rim on the filter holder.
Small differences, but they add up. I like the Frieling Cilio much better and feel it's worth the extra cost.
One note- This is a No. 1 size cone, but No. 1 filters are not readily available at my local grocery store (Houston, TX area). No. 2 and 4 are regularly in stock, however, so I picked up some No. 2 filters and they work just fine. This actually might be better because the No. 1 cone is so small and the NO. 2 filter stands up a little higher which keeps the grounds in the cone as you pour the water in.
This little cone is the perfect solution. It doesn't stain, rinses out quickly and cleanly, and best of all, it's NOT PLASTIC! It's heavy and sturdy and feels like a real coffee maker. It looks classy in the kitchen. It's inexpensive. What more could you want? Besides a butler or maid to make the coffee for you, I mean. If you gotta do it yourself, use this. It's a great investment in your happiness and well-being.
I use the Number 2 filters with it; the Number 1's felt a bit small to me even though they fit. I'm a bit sloppy and make very strong coffee so the Number 2 filters make me feel more secure.
