The County Line Kitchen is an old-style mason jar sporting a screw-on plastic lid with a flip cap for pouring. You can also choose a lid with or without a handle or a typical mason jar lid. The brewer can fit easily inside a refrigerator door bin or lay on its side when the filter is removed.

The Aquach, although glass with a stainless steel filter, is not as versatile as the county Line Kitchen. It can only brew standing up and does not fit the door bin of a small refrigerator. 

With its insertable stainless steel neck, you don’t have to worry about water overflow when brewing, and the stopper fits well. However, the County Line Kitchen has a better filter design which produces a stronger and higher-quality brew.
