This is a 5-cup stovetop coffee syphon, 22-ounce. For brewing and serving the perfect-cup of coffee. A wire grid is included for use on electric stoves, the grid is not required for gas stoves. Always use medium or medium high heat. Dishwasher and microwave safe. This is a great price for this style of coffee brewing.. Plus we always carry replacement parts. Directions for use; use a slightly finer grind of coffee. Drop the washable, reusable cloth covered filter into the infussion chamber with the chain hanging down into the glass syphon tube. Pull the chain down until you can hook it to the bottom of the siphon tube. Fill the bottom carafe to the 5 mark with hot water and place 5 measuring spoons of coffee in top chamber. This model works on gas and electric rangetops, and comes with a wire diffuser for use on electric coil burners. Use medium-high heat. It takes about 4 minutes to heat the water, all the water is siphoned to the top chamber and then allow 2 minutes to brew. Once you remove from the heat source, the coffee comes back down to the bottom carafe. Remove the top, placing it in its convertible lid/stand, and bring the pot to the table for serving.

The processes produces excellent, rich, mellow, full coffee, of a quality very like Chemex. (Flavor does depend on how good a coffee you use.)
To us, the advantage is that the coffee brews entirely in glass. There is no plastic aftertaste such as we detect in all kitchen automatic coffee; and there is no burned, watery metal aftertaste such as we detect in metal electric percolators.
Northwest Glass provides two cloth filters sewn around the stainless filter. We removed that and folded filter paper around the filter holder. Very few grounds seep into the coffee at all and easily catch in the last teaspoon. The kit includes a plastic stand that you use only to support the glass top while you add coffee. This can serve as a lid, too.
Cleaning is pretty easy. Even finely powdered Turkish coffee drops out into compost bin or garbage with the help of a spoon. Several of the stainless-steel filters disappeared into the compost owing to our carelessness; so we bought backups.
We use one of these in my office and it makes three for-to-five cup pots every morning. We have a K-cup machine sitting right next to the heating element in the kitchen that is only used out of disappointment when people come in to find the Yama carafe empty.
These last for years with three heating cycles daily, but the gasket in the neck and the top of the carafe does seem to expand after a period of time so that the seal breaks and water stays up in the mixing pot and doesn't flow back down into the carafe. We've used plumbers vinyl tape with limited success to repair and reseal the gasket, but the tape doesn't hold up well with our volume of use.
I get a new one every 18 month or so, and this latest one came in a new package with cardboard and paper surrounding the carafe instead of the bubble wrap from previous boxes, and the bottom tip of the tube from the top element was broken and the carafe has glass shards in it. I am not sure if the new packaging will stick, as the box does have a new design, but it didn't work this last order. I will return it and try for another.
Still this is not enough for complaint. The coffee that this pot produces is simply too good. If you invest in a metal mesh filter, you will get even more use out of it and the upper chamber will clear much faster.
