I had been using the brown unbleached paper filters, i liked the clean strong coffee i could get with the filters, but i wanted to make the move from non reusable paper coffee filters to something less wasteful.

This seemed like the best option based on great the reviews.

Here is why it is not comparable and not a good substitute:

The mesh is not fine enough. Water goes through twice or three times faster than through a paper coffee filter, so the coffee has lees time to infuse into the water.

The coffee you get with this filter is not "clean" as it is when using a paper filter but murky like with a french press, except not as rich as with a french press.

There is a lot more plastic on this than you can see in the image. The base of the filter is almost completely made of plastic.

I do not like hot liquids to come in contact with plastic, many studies have shown that plastics produce unhealthy chemicals especially when exposed to heat.

Because this is made of a combination of metal mesh and plastic on the bottom more water flows over the grounds and out the sides of the mesh when it is more full, once it gets closer to the plastic there is less mesh so the water flow is obstructed.

In a paper filter water travels down, but because of the design of this, water travels out to the sides, which means the water is flowing over a lot of the grounds rather than through them so the finer coffee grounds that release more flavor are less exposed to the water than the rougher grounds on top.

All of this adds up to less flavor extracted from the coffee and a more one dimensional watery kind of coffee.

A better design would have been to have a mesh screen at the bottom as well.

Descriptions claims its for use in ALL, not MOST #4 Cone filtered coffee makers. Not so. Doesn't fit my Gevalia coffee maker -- I can't even close the lid. Not worth paying to return it, so I guess I'll cut the top ring and handle off and make it fit or throw it out.

I was getting frustrated discarding paper filters after only getting one use out of them. A permanent filter seems more ecologically sound, and more practical in the long run. This particular one seems to be constructed just fine, and fits my ceramic Melitta perfectly. However, the coffee it "brews" is not quite the same as what I get from paper (using the white Melitta filters). Firstly, hot water runs through this much more quickly, so the end result is weaker. Secondly, it allows a fine grit to pass through which influences taste, not in a better way, and also makes the brewed coffee a little bit cloudy. The fast pass-through seems nice, especially since I do not much like to wait for the paper filter and always have to fiddle with the grounds to get all the water to make its way through. But apparently that bit of stalling allows for better "brewing". I have experimented with slightly clogging the Melitta hole, which helps, but is a hassle. Maybe there is a specific Melitta with a specific hole size intended for permanent filters, don't know. Anyway, this device such as it is is fine, but the concept is a bit unsuccessful. I'm willing to keep testing it for a while to see if I get to the brew I want, but I suspect I'll be going back to paper.

I bought the Medelco #4 cone permanent coffee filter as a substitute for a Braun UGSF4 filter. Unfortunately, it's not a really good substitute. Although the Medelco coffee filter will fit in a Braun coffee maker, it's not as tall and tapered as the Braun UGSF4. As a result, it doesn't concentrate the coffee as much when it is moving through the filter so you have to substantially increase the amount of ground coffee that you are using for the same strength of coffee. So while the Medelco is initially cheaper than the corresponding Braun filter, one would end up spending much more money in the long run because you would use more ground coffee. My advice is to search the net (including e-bay) to find a genuine Braun gold filter...even though it will likely be more expensive than the Medelco filter, you'll be much happier in the long run.

I purchased this because, after about 8 months or so, I started noticing tiny holes/tears forming in the bottom of the permanent filter that came from the factory with my Braun coffee maker. It seemed to allow some of the smaller coffee grounds to come through during brewing. This product partially solved the problem. However, a more general issue with these permanent filters is that, even when they are intact, they do not filter as many particulates from the coffee as a paper filter. If you grind your own beans as I do, and your grind is on the finer side, a certain amount of 'residue' is going to come through these filters that would be stopped by a paper filter. Just keep that in mind, and don't drink those last few drops!

I've been using this filter for about two weeks now. It is my first permanent filter, and I am very happy with its performance. It is solidly built, and with proper care should last quite a while. I debated on the high-end swiss gold filter, but thought the price was too high, so I figured I'd take a chance with this one with free shipping. I can't imagine how much better/different the swiss gold would be if any? I am using a fairly fine ground from a good, flat burr grinder, and have had no issues of grounds/sludge in my coffee. I also purchased a new Zojirushi coffee maker at the same time, so read my review on that as well if you're in the market for a good machine. This filter fits the Zoji perfectly.
