You can boil water, right? This is a cone filter, but hugely improved: it holds the water in the cone until you set it on the cup, which then lets it flow through. This fixes the issue of limited brew time with most cone filters, like a cross between a french press and cone.
If you need multiple cups at once, this one is stellar. It preheats the water in a tank before pouring it over the grounds, which does away with the issue of a heating element being overwhelmed during brewing.
Also this is one of the best brewers currently, in some respects better than the Technivorm:
And top of the line cutting edge: you program in elevation, water temp, and pre-soak time. Sick!
