I have had many french press and this one is the best so far. The metal part with the handle adjusts perfectly to the glass, so it does not get loose when you poor the coffee and does not twist either. There is a little circular spring that hold the metal mesh that keeps the coffee at the bottom, and the mesh is doubled, folded? at the edges against the glass, this way the coffee cannot escape and float at the surface like it does on cheapest designs. Plus the appearance is nice you can bring it to an informal table ...
I have had my French Press for several months now. I love the fact that I can make a fresh cup of coffee and takes only a couple of minutes. The coffee tastes wonderful. The French Press is so easy to clean. Now that I have experienced the French Press 3-cup Stainless Steel Coffee Maker, I would never go back to the a regular electric coffee maker again. I also know that I am saving electricity which is a major plus.
This is my first french press and it defiantly makes a difference in how coffee tastes. If you are looking at getting a french press, but not sure buy this one. This is a great starter and has introduced me to the french press and I will probably buy a larger one in the future, but it was worth the price.
I bought this for my brother for his birthday. He asked for a french press to replace the one he had. He called to say that this came right on time and it was perfect. It works great, makes wonderful coffee and is attractive enough to leave out.
What does the manufacturer mean by "3 cup"? A standard American cup is 8 fluid ounces, but I've seen 6oz, even 4 oz (by Bodum) listed as meaning "one cup" for various coffee makers and brands of coffee. To me "3 cup" should mean 24 fluid oz, but that doesn't tell me what the manufacturer has decided means one cup. Thanks.mayalcott on Sep 27, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us mayalcott. Numerous reviews on site say it makes 16 ounces of coffee. They also commented about it not making 3 cups or 24 ounces. I hope this helps.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 1, 2013
