Fritted disc percolators are the kings of percolation power. There’s simply no other percolator that comes close to what a fritted disc can do. The number of bubbles, and therefore surface area of the bubbles, completely dwarfs all other percolators. Additionally, it has the durability & stackability advantages that all disc percolators have. However, there are two significant downsides that come with fritted disc percs. First, the microscopic holes create a lot of drag, making fritted discs far more difficult to draw through than other percolators. Second, all those little pores can easily get clogged, so you’ll have to clean it more regularly if you’re using it often. If you don’t mind the drag, and you regularly keep your glass clean anyways, then this could be the perc to end all percs.
If you place a high value on percolation power, don’t mind cleaning and drag, or you just want something different to add to your collection, this piece is perfect for you. It also comes with everything needed for both bowls and dabbing.
