May have found my perfect dripper

Recommended Posts

There are probably cheaper places to buy one of these, but for those in the Seattle area, I wandered down to "Science, Art and More..." on 65th and Roosevelt. I knew there must be some kind of vessel that would be the dripper I was looking for. And I found it!

 

At first I was a little hesitant, thinking I should pose as some chemistry student... until I saw two stacks of books underneath all the lab glassware, "The Distiller's Art", and "Making Your Own Corn Whiskey." I felt right at home.

 

So I picked up one of these. The 500 ml is a bit big, but the neck is big enough for ice cubes. It drips great, though my wife thinks a stopper might be in order, in case of overflow. I say, if you are overflowing this puppy, you may have already had too much absinthe! Time will tell how sturdy the glass nozzle part will be with repeated washings. But it has a nice balance in the hand when full, and, makes you feel like Mr. Science to boot.

 

I also found some other interesting, er, food items, there. Take it from me, you are going to want to order a bunch of these for stocking stuffers, or to make your own Chex Party Mix for Super Bowl Sunday!

Yes, I was looking at the separatory funnels, but it seemed the top might be tight to get ice cubes in. I may have to try one, though. A bit more expensive, but oh so chic.

I'm not sure how you're going to use it as a dripper, though.

 

He puts ice cubes and water through the top of the flask and dribbles through the side spout - the part that is horizontal if you hold the flask upright. At least that's my guess.

I would never guess :devil:

I was fortunate to acquire a 1000 ml separatory funnel from my chemist friend who works

in the lab next to mine. He found it among some dusty equipment, obsolete for his purposes.

He's such a nice guy! "Oh, you're going to need a ring stand with that - here you go."

 

I crush cubes in a plastic Ziplock bag with a rubber mallet and put them in the top.

 

It really works perfectly. The stopcock allows complete control from tiny drops to a steady stream.

 

Peace and Love!
