The Basic collection includes water carafes with practical CloseUp stoppers from design agency Köhler & Wilms. The tilt mechanism opens and closes automatically when pouring and an integrated strainer holds back ice cubes and pieces of fruit. The glass carafes with matching water glasses are available in three different sizes for 0.75 to 1.5 litres, with or without handle and in fine polished Cromargan® 18/10 rust-free stainless steel. All carafes can be cleaned in the dishwasher and fit into the drinks compartment of any standard refrigerator. Those wanting to cool their water at the table can place the carafes in cooling rings, specially designed by WMF for the Basic collection.
