Buyer Beware! Knockoff filters, do not work well., 6/26/2014 6:37:44 PM

I bought these thinking that they were the original Braun filter cartridges for my coffee maker. It turned out that they are "no name" filters which look the same as the originals. However, every time you add water to the coffee maker with one of these filters installed, it floats up to the top of the water chamber and you have to stick your hand or a tool in the water and push it back down and hold it for a bit. Sometimes it will float up while coffee is being brewed which causes water to leak everywhere. In either case, it's hard to imagine that it is actually fulfilling its function since the water seems to go around, rather than through, the filter. I am disappointed by this poor quality product and wish I'd figured it out early enough to return them.
