Specifically:

The spire in the knock off funnels is often too tall and causes restriction of airflow.
Unknown glazes have given rise to rumors of unsafe products. No confirmation though. Just rumors thus far.
And the clay that is used in the Tangiers funnel absorbs and distributes heat better than whatever they use for the knock offs.
Some of them are thin cast ceramic also and thus the bottom opening is very large resulting in a difficult fit on many hookahs.

Yes, the opening is very annoying. I tried today actually to put my chinese phunnel on my friends hookah and it wasn't sitting straight at all. Just make life easier and buy a Tangiers Phunnel.

For a couple dollars more, the quality is so much better, its just not comparable. I would be a Tangiers bowl (small preferably) and call it a day.
