I had a drip coffeemaker which brewed 14 cups of coffee, and I used the Melitta Cone Filters for my coffee. I loved those filters. They were big enough so they held as much coffee as I wanted to put in, and I do like mine strong. I have nothing bad to say about these. They are thick, and, also, you can fold the tabs in to make them even stronger and fit into the cone better. Unfortunately, my coffeemaker died on me and I had to run to to get another right away (can't be without my coffee). I ended up buying a Mr. Coffee 12 Cup Coffeemaker that had the basket type filter, which I wasn't too pleased about, since I had just stocked up on the Melitta filters. I noticed that the basket filter seemed really small, even though it said "fits most 8-12 cup coffeemakers". I do have grounds coming through because of it. I like the Melitta Cone Filters so much better, and I will not be settling for the basket machine next time I need one! I do recommend these for sure.
