The One Quart Synthetic Maple Syrup Cone and stand is a great starter set for hobbyists! Maple Syrup Synthetic Cones are used during the last step of producing maple syrup: pour your boiled syrup through the cone to sift any debris from the syrup. Made of polyester felt, this cone is durable and reusable, featuring one seam and three slits at the top for mounting to the stand. Align and fit the filter to the tabs on the stand, place stand in a bowl or container to collect all of that wonderful syrup! The stand features a removable, perforated cone, tapered and sized wooden pestle and handle. The perforated cone adds stability and structure for your maple syrup filter without obstructing the flow of the syrup. Easily remove the cone by pulling down on the tabs of the stand. The perforated cone is made of tin plated steel and measures 7 inches in diameter. The cone sits in a stable stainless-steel stand that measure 8.5 inches tall. The wooden pestle included is tapered and sized to fit perfectly into the cone.
