The wooden holder adds a nice touch to the origami dripper. I dont necessarily need to use it each time I pour, but it certainly makes my dripper look more complete. As usual, really happy to buy from Kurasu.
Perfect match for the turquoise dripper, lovely combo.
OK. 5 Stars because it is of good quality and does what it says. It is also priced right. Is it necessary? Not really but I would still get it again.
Can be used with any other cone shaped dripper without a dedicated base. It weighs slightly lighter than I would want it to be but it does the job.
This is a nice piece - fits into cups and pitchers very well. Not too big or too small. If exclusively being used with the origami dripper, it needs ridges or some design that will allow for the dripper to stay level. It's hard to get an even flow of water through the coffee without constant adjustment.
