Good at what it does
This lid is used for Chemex pots to keep the coffee from getting too strong when it is on the burner. I keep my coffee on a gas burner on low to keep it hot in the winter, and this top has made a difference in keeping the coffee tasting better longer. It is very sturdy and durable

It does its job
This item does exactly what you expect it to do. And, at this price point, I think it is well worth purchasing.

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.

Great Addition & How To Pour Using It...
This top catches the rising steam and returns it to the coffee pot so the coffee doesn't evaporate.

A note about how to use it. The very top of the stem is slightly concave. When you lift the pot, you can use a finger from the other hand to hold the lid in place. This two handed action actually gives you a better controlled balance for pouring. We have a very large hand-blown Chemex which is fairly heavy all on its own -- this way of pouring really helps when the pot is fuller as I don't have to be nearly as concerned about dropping the Chemex -- it's held firmly by both hands.

Careful
The other reviewers were correct in that the lid will fall out of the pot and splash into the cup it you forget to take it out before pouring. Only happened once, the noise it makes is enough to scare you into remembering the next time.

Okay, it is hardly necessary. It won't make your coffee better. However it may bring you a smile just 'cuz.

If you think of it as kitchen jewelry, it sparkles, is substantially made and, like other small stuff, it can play hide-and-seek with you in a cluttered kitchen.

If you know someone who loves their Chemex and pour over coffee, it's a perfect lagniappe.

Carol E on Jan 26, 2015
We plan to hold coffee on the stove on "warm" through a meal, and wished to minimize evaporation. On occasion, we may hold coffee in the refrigerator in the carafe, to be heated later.

There is another plastic top for the Chemex Coffee Maker but I try to avoid plastic. This glass one seems better and I think that glass may be a better heat container then plastic.

Can the Chemex be heated up on a gas stove?
A shopper on Dec 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I found some answers from Chemex homepage FAQ.
Please refer.

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.
do all lids fit the 5 cup chemex? does the glass top sit over the entire chemex or down closer to the coffee?
A shopper on Oct 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The lid sits on the smallest opening part where your hand picks it up. It's not secure, you have to hold it while you pour your cup of coffee or it will fall off and break. It is meant to diminish the heat from escaping after you've made coffee, but I've had guests over who don't see the clear top and start pouring with it still on, and with that, nearly breaking the thing. It's not a necessity, but it will fit all sizes of Chemex coffee makers.
How do you reheat the coffee?
Can the glass go right on top of a gas burner?
A shopper on Jun 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The glass Chemex carafe can never go on any heated surface. I have it on a silicone pot holder. The coffee, as it should be, is at its most optimum consumed immediately after making. I have on occasion gone for a second cup heating it in the microwave on low for 30-45 seconds making sure it doesn't scald and taste bitter, but know that it will never be as great as that first steaming cup straight from the Chemex fresh. If there's any leftover coffee, it's ok to cool completely and store it in an airtight container in the fridge for iced coffee the next day. It's decent that way too.
