Bought this to keep on board (nonbreakable) for good coffee without power (propane stove). Great coffee! A pain to clean, but that is true of all french presses. I did not give full marks due to plastic has clouded a bit already (2 weeks of continuous use). Harder plastic would not do this. (I did not use any abrasive sponges etc. I think it is the coffee grounds.) Anyway, in a fairly short amount of time, it is not as pretty. Otherwise, good product.
