I find that I have no suction problems when the saucer is either dry or filled with water. When it is just slightly wet is when the suction occurs. Rather easily, too, I'm afraid.
If other TCers want to "experiment" with this gaiwan's suction, I'd recommend filling the saucer with water, then pouring it out. That seems to leave the right amount of water for suction to occur (for my gaiwan).
I'm not sure if my gaiwan is a defect, but I don't really feel entitled to a refund. The gaiwan is lovely in every other way besides the base problems previously discussed.
