Hi

Is there any advantage to glass vs ceramic vs Stainless? It seems that the stainless and ceramic models elevate the filter a bit from the bottom by slight elevations. Any advantage to this over the glass?

Thanks

Jay

I highly doubt that the slight difference in elevation will make any difference in the drainage. I have the 185 glass and there is more than enough space between the holes and the filter.

In the 185, I see no difference between the three. There is a raised bubble/bump in the glass version, but it is not as pronounced as the ridges in the ceramic or metal versions. Personally, I would go with the metal because of durability. I own a glass 185 and a glass and stainless steel 155. I love the glass, but love how sturdy the stainless steel is. As far as advantages or disadvantages between the three, there are none.
