Topic: Swissgold vs Braun Gold Screen Filter (4 msgs / 65 lines)
1) From: Larry Williams
I have a Braun gold screen filter and am wondering if the Swissgold 
filter is any better?   I haven't used the Braun lately because I use a 
blade grinder and cannot control the size of the grind.

The big difference is Braun "gold toned" filter versus SwissGold "23k gold
plated" filter. Advantage being gold is non-reactive meaning no possibility
of flavor taint. But sounds like you don't need to worry about it until
getting a better grinder!:-)

Swissgold is gold plated.  Most the others are a stainless steel, or a 
nylon if you find it but mostly stainless.  and colored gold via 
whatever they use.
The stainless is not going to taint your coffee, however a cheap filter 
might be made of other less resistant metals that can.  Being gold it 
will be durable as well, and not wear out / rust / corrode as steel 
might over time.
If you can get a real nylon one that wold work just as well Id think if 
it was made well.  I wish I could find the nylon basket filters for my 
recycling.. AR takes its toll on stainless.
