I've read complaints about this filter's solid plastic bottom. I found that this is actually better than a wire-mesh bottom because water doesn't pass through as quickly, resulting in a stronger brew. I have tried one all BF215 8-12 cup Permanent Basket-style Coffee Filter and it is exactly similar to this one except for its wire-mesh bottom. The resulting brew is very bland because water passes through the sides and the bottom too fast.
On weekends my husband and I brew 10-12 cups of coffee and we've never experienced an overflow. As mentioned by another reviewer, those having that problem probably need to decalcify their coffeemakers.
Tip: This filter sells at Target for only $5.99.
It makes a slightly stronger brew because the filter allows more oils through and in the longer run, one saves buying paper filters. Its greener to use it, since its less paper and trash for land fills.
It has a flat plastic sealed bottom, so the coffee is forced to strain to the sides, slowing the transit of hot water through the grinds like that of a paper filter.
Cleaning. You'll use water, time and effort rinsing this filter, after tapping out the grinds.
Less grinds. The filter is smaller than the removable cup so it has less volume as a paper filter. Using 4 measures of ground coffee cause my grinds to overflow past the plastic filter and into my coffee pot.
To clean it easier, I leave the grounds in the filter to dry out. I tap the inverted filter directly on a trash can or plate, and nearly all comes off as a lump or flakes out. You can wash off the rest. Its not any more a problem that cleaning a french press.
this filter is magnificent, and much better than the cheaper ones which my friends have gotten and had metallic tasting coffee.
I was trying paper filters, but they kept collapsing, and I would get lots of coffee grounds in my coffee. The manufacturer said if the paper filter's wall collapses, just wet it down. I tried that as well, but they just wouldn't stay up. It got mighty frustrating, especially after losing a few pots of coffee because there was so much coffee grounds in the pot.
I then bought this filter, and put in the usual number of scoops. The coffee tasted remarkably better using this permanent filter, than a paper filter. I really could tell the difference. It was much more full-bodied. Drinking coffee using a paper filter made the coffee taste flat. I heard many people say the paper filters don't let the coffee oils pass through, but the permanent filters will, and I'm convinced that's why my coffee tastes so much better now.
I really would recommend this filter. Some people don't like that the bottom is plastic, and the walls are mesh, but I like that design. It just gives it more stability.
