However, my major quibble is that the glass top just rests on the Chemex (as you imagine it would), and I bought this because I didn't think that would be too annoying. And it isn't a huge deal. But in reality, we can forget that the lid is there before we pour. And especially if you have guests, they won't realize that when they go to pour that this thing will just slide off the top.
For me its enough of an inconvenience to look at buying one of the rubber stoppers I've seen on amazon. Aesthetically, the glass on glass is far preferable to the rubber (and aesthetics, in my view, are a very significant consideration in respect to your choice), but I think I'll get a white rubber stopper and see if it functions well and doesn't tarnish the beauty of the Chemex in a significant way.
Questions & Answers
Q | Can I heat a Chemex coffeemaker on the stove?
A | Because the Chemex is glass, it should not be placed directly on the range of a stove with exposed c
oils. It may be placed on a glass covered stove range. For exposed coils utilize the Chemex wire grid.
Q | Can I put the coffeemaker on the range?
A | It is not recommended because the coffeemaker can break on direct heat. Utilize the Chemex wire grid on low heat setting. Also, if the range is a glass top model, the brewer is safe on it without a grid-low heat setting.
Can the glass go right on top of a gas burner?
