Posted Thu May 2, 2013, 11:55pm Subject: Broke my second Hario Woodneck... alternative stands?
...So today I dropped my $40 woodneck while washing it in the sink and it shattered into millions of small pieces, and this is the second time I've broken it.
I've currently got a 3rd Hario woodneck drip pot sitting in my amazon basket ready to be checked out, but I'm sick of breaking these fragile glasses, and was wondering if anyone here has come up with an alternative stand to keep the cloth filter still while pouring. I've seen videos online with people just holding the wooden handle while pouring, but I don't trust my hands to be that steady to keep the grinds still.
Anyone got DIY examples, or other small, sturdy (and relatively cheap/equivalent) holders or stands for the Hario cloth filters?

If I were ever to break my Chemex, I would just continue to use the filters in one of my cones. I have a big ceramic cone and a couple of plastic ones. I would drip into one of my glass teapots or coffee pots or directly into a big cup if I'm not brewing for anyone else.
