I have a Yama, Hario, Bodum (electric and manual), and all of them allow a place to put the funnel portion when you are done. The manual ones let you use the plastic top in which to rest it. The electric ones have a holder that slides out of the bottom... No real need to buy anything extra A. <Snip>

I'm not sure if I am behind the power curve here or if this is something you just can't find in the states but While I was in Lisbon I saw A LOT of vacum brewers most were small and almost all have the cloth filters but what peaked my interest was that they sell what looks like a 1 foot tall candle stick holder that holds the top of the brewer after you are done. They go for about $20.00 maybe I just missed them around here but I thought that they were a really easy answer to what do you do with the top of the brewer after you are done making the coffee.
