I use a plate too. Sorta funny: my weekend morning ritual means 
starting toast, water is ready, rinse our paper filter in CCD (highly 
recommended, see my recent youtube videos on this ; 
http://www.youtube.com/sweetmarias )start brew, cover with plate, 
stir at 1 minute, toast finishes, butter and put on plate on top of 
CCD, then at 4 minutes, remove plate and toast, stir and drain CCD! 
Multifuntion plate!

Seriously, the new shipment due in a few weeks comes with a top. I am 
unclear on whether they changed the wavy rim on the ccd, but still we 
did NOT want the top to snap on, just to lay on top ... we were 
afraid a tight fit could lead to accidents. I am out of the loop on 
this though - maria has handled most of it, including some better 
English language text for the box!
