Now why did I get these again?

Ibrik? Mokapot? Percolater? Flip Drip? Cowboy Coffee? An old sock?

Actually they served their intended purpose well. Anyone want to guess what I used them for?

Hint: I only needed one, of no particular color.

Well if curiosity killed the cat, I guess you cats are all playing it safe so here's the answer.

I usually got a little leakage over the edge of my mug I was pressing into when I used the Aeropress with the stainless mesh s-filter. The gasket stops that from happening. Occasionally coffee can come out the 4 slots in the flange now but its avoidable if I am watching for it and stop pushing so hard if its about to happen.

*edit 4/18/17: There are 4 slots in the flange of an Aeropress, not 3 as I originally posted.

Nice one. How about something that will let me aeropress into a motel-room plastic cup without crush and splurt ? Tks !

hahaha you got me there! I remember one time we were staying at a motel and I had to make a quick side trip to a Rite-Aid and found a nice light green mug on clearance for a dollar when I forgot to bring a suitable mug to press into. Still got it.

This just popped up as I was perusing Amazon for something different.

They're currently $4.83 and Prime ($1.49 less than I paid for my color ones).
https://www.amazon.com/HIC-Silicone-Replacement-sized-Mouth-3-75-Inches/dp/B000HM621C/ref=pd_rhf_eeolp_s_cp_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B000HM621C&pd_rd_r=RQ4GKMZ36N3PBT9DNQGA&pd_rd_w=395KE&pd_rd_wg=v6c17&psc=1&refRID=RQ4GKMZ36N3PBT9DNQGA

I guess that's a standard size of canning jar gasket (2.75 inch ID is the critical dimension as to whether it will fit on an Aeropress). Might be really cheap if they are available in bulk at an old-fashioned hardware store that has canning supplies.

Oh well, I can rotate my color ones to show my mood.

It is nice to not have the little dribble stream of coffee go down the outside of my cup though. Saves a napkin nearly every time I have a cup of coffee.
