We only use the Stainless Steel Filter Holder(including the 1 and 2 coffee spouts) in the entire Home Pro range (Dream One / Pid, Steel) and Professional (Bar, Baby T, Barista T, Big Dream) range.
We stopped using brass and chrome on this key component. The advantages are multiple:
–Health. Stainless steel is the food material par excellence. Even with the use of low lead brass, there are metal migrations in the beverage. We also remove the chrome, which ends up in the cup. The traditional chrome-plated brass filter holder is black on the inside in a few weeks, while the stainless steel one is unalterable over time.
Quality of material. Stainless steel is a much harder material than brass. Its lifespan is much longer.
–Cleaning. Much easier to clean and more resistant.
