Posted Mon Jun 3, 2013, 5:56pm Subject: Chemex manufacturing quality control lacking?
Today I purchased two 6 cup Chemex brewers. The ones with the glass handle. Same merchant. Sealed boxes. When I took them out of the box, one was 110 grams lighter than the other. The cone portion seemed ever so slightly thinner. The handle seemed thinner.
The halfway point at the bottom of the bubble was also not the same. Water weight differed by 15 grams between them, measured to the bottom of the bubble.
If these are machine manufactured, should they be identical? Should I contact Chemex?
