The Able Heat Lid

The Able Heat Lid

We usually shake our heads at little aftermarket gimmicks. This could have easily been one...but it's not. The good folks at Able put a lot of thought into what could have been just a silly rubber plug. By itself, your Chemex brewer makes a great cup of coffee that stays hot "long enough" and Chemex already makes a glass lid that keeps in the heat. So what's so good about the Able Heat Lid?

 

First of all, it retains heat better than the glass lid and (of course) better than an uncovered Chemex. Our test results below gave us good reason to offer the Able lid. On top of that, it stays plugged in while pouring and is easily removed with no effort. Oh yeah, it's made in the USA! Want one? Click here.
