Subject: Cloth Filter for Siphon Pot question
 

In previous posts, I've seen the recommendation of storing siphon pot cloth filters in the refrigerator in water. [The reason is to not dry out the residual coffee particles, and to prevent bacterial contamination, both causing significant odor transfer to the cup].

I'm fine with storing the filter in the refrigerator, but my question is:  Can I store the entire assembly (filter, metal frame, spring, ball chain, and hook) submerged in water?  This makes me think that the metal components will rust and corrode.  But removing the cloth filter each and every time seems completely onerous.

Any recommendations?

Thanks!

You can't really remove the cloth part of the filter each time, as you need to tie it on very tight to the filter assembly. That is at least my understanding.

I have the same question. Did you ever find out any more info on whether it's ok to store the whole thing in water?

Mine has done fine in water.  I usually place the filter with parts into a small container with hot water and a pinch of oxy-clean. I let it sit for a day, then rinse it out, and place it in the fridge with fresh water.  Never had a problem.  I am looking forward to other's insight on this.

Same here. I don't take the assembly apart until it's time to retire the cloth part of the filter. I do that frequently anyway.
