The french press is easy to use and makes really great coffee. I haven't used anything but this to make my coffee since it arrived. What a difference in taste! It may take a little extra time to make in the morning, but it's so worth it. I just wished that I ordered a larger french press.

I had never drank or used a french press or the cofee made from one. I was sold the first time I used it. You can see the oils that you are not getting when using filters. I personally get one large cup from this but the strength of the coffee is outstanding. I cannot drink more than one cup in a row and I need a lot to get me going in the morning. I am also able to drink my coffee black now because the flavors you get from using this along with using freshly ground beans is amazing. I am in coffee heaven!
I love coffee through a french press and as soon as I got this opened, I made myself a cup! Great quality, in fact, I thought it would not be as good a quality as it is. The decorative nature of the stainless steel makes it pretty enough to leave on the stove, counter or table. If you are looking for a French Press, get this one.

Item was exactly as described, that the only good thing I can say about this product. The glass did not fit properly, it was too slim and slid when you tried to pour the coffee also something (I've yet to figure out) prevented the press/filter from doing its' job, grounds were always in the coffee.
Excellent price, fast shipment, easy clean up - I really like this french press.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? excellent
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes, it did
I LOVE THE COFFEE, GREAT TASTE SO ON AND SO FORTH, HOWEVER THE DESIGN OF THIS PRODUCT IS SO SO SINCE THE SCREEN ON THE PRESS ALLOWS GRINDS TO ENTER THE FILTER REQUIRING A CLEANING TO REMOVE THESE UNWANTED REMINDERS. I WILL SAY THE INCORPORATION OF THE METAL SADDLE HELPS TO PREVENT THE MOST UNWANTED BREAKING OF THE GLASS. I WOULD PAY THE EXTRA $ FOR A BETTER USE AND CLEAN MODEL, ONE THAT DOES NOT NEED TO BE REASSEMBLED EACH TIME I USE IT. ALSO KEEP IN MIND THE SIZE OF A CUP IN THEIR MIND IS 6 OZ. AND IF U R LIKE MOST OF US , U MOST LIKELY DRINK FROM A BIGGER THAN NORMAL CUP SO KEEP IT IN MIND WHEN WHIPPING UP UR BREW. HAPPY COFFEE TIME....................
Looks great, works great, love the ceramic liner on the lid. My only quibble is I wish the screen assembly was just a wee bit larger in circumference. While it doesn't fall down into the coffee while brewing (as others have experienced) it seems like it could at any moment. My experience is largely with Bodum presses and the only reason I moved to this one is my bad habit of breaking them. The stainless surround should help with that. I also leave it out on display as it really is attractive!
Love this french press. easy to use and makes great coffee. Only drawback is you have to drink the coffee right away if you want it hot. I have a coffee server thermal pot I poor the coffee into to keep it hot so I don't have to slug it all down in one shot.
This is such a special coffee/tea press that I decided to get three of them for wedding gifts for some of my special coffee lovers. I love the design of the steaming cup! It's very inviting for that special touch of hospitality. I have already purchased 4 of the 3 cup presses and 2 of the 4 cup ones as friendship gifts and believe that I prefer the 4 cup press in that it does take less room in the cupboard. It's just an elegant gift and seems to make others happy when you bring it out "just for them" !
There's not one thing to dislike about this coffee press. It's simple to use, makes a great cup of coffee and it's nice to look at. I originally purchased this after receiving a gift of whole Kona beans. I wanted to finally experience a "real" cup of coffee (a family members words, not mine). After browsing a few others and reading their reviews, I decided on this one. I'm more then happy with my choice and am looking forward to taking it on our next camping trip as well.
This French Press is just what I was looking for. It makes a great cup of coffee. The 5 cup size is perfect if your coffee mug is a little larger and you just want to top off you first cup without having to make a new batch. The insert easily sllides out of the decorative stainless holder for cleaning. Had to guess at the right amount of coffee to use from the beginning - but once I got the portion right have had no issues except satisfaction since then.
