I've been a barista for almost 4 years now, and I have tried everything brewing method under the sun and consider myself quite the coffee aficionado. The V60 really is amazing, the hype in the community is certainly not unwarranted; when done properly it produces a great, clean and crisp cup of coffee. This particular set is totally fine, there's a lot of discourse over the ceramic and plastic cone, but honestly, I have both on a regular basis and I notice virtually no difference, especially if you're just brewing it at home for yourself or friends/family. Bottom line: fantastic coffee, I look forward to evolving my collection of Hario products.
This Hario pour over set is well built. It doesn't take up too much space. I keep mine at the office, so I can make coffee quickly on breaks. The pot will sap less heat out of your coffee if you preheat the pot with hot water before you make your coffee. Just rinse it in hot water when you are rinsing the paper filter. The set comes with a small pack of filters to get you started. The plastic filter cone is easy to clean and sturdy so far.
I bought the Hario v60 pour over coffee set as I had just started making coffee and didn't know much but a week and more has passed and I think this product will stay with me for a long time. I'd recommend it to any people starting out when it comes to making coffee or as a gift for anyone as it comes with everything you require except the coffee grounds.
