I love this thing! I own a very large coffee travel mug and this size is perfect for that large mug.......to take me to and through my first hours of work/or it fills two large java mugs at home. French press is the way to go. I also own a coffee grinder and it has the ability to go from a very course grind (perfect for this press) or to an espresso grind.....for my cappuccino and auto drip machine. With the coarse ground I have NO grinds from this French press and I've been using it everyday since receiving it. I'm frugal, but I use the nation's number one tested whole bean for home: Eight O'clock coffee (according to Yahoo's survey) and just love the quality of my Cup of Joe. It's unbeatable in any coffee house in my opinion! My appliances: the grinder, auto-drip pot, and French press all sit on their own little tray on my kitchen counter and I must say... this French press totally classes up the place! The stainless steel compliments my kitchen nicely. And my coffee reminds me of the islands.... Jamaica, Hawaii, Bahamas........silky, rich, and very dark.
I was concerned the quality would be just so so . When I received the product I was excited to see the quality was VERY high end. The metal was durable and very well made.
It makes about 3 full cups¿. The screen is very well made so coffee grounds do not filter through when pressing the batch
Strongly recommend this product
bought this as a surprise for my husband, the coffee lover...he was so happy when he opened the gift, but more happy when he tasted the coffee...He has showed this off to several friends who have all enjoyed an excellent cup of coffee

I just got a smart energy meter and realized my Mr Coffee was using tons of electricity. This makes wonderful coffee (I heat the water in a few minutes in the microwave first, so still using a little energy!) and it stays warm a long time. I love it.
Very nice product. My husband wanted one that was stainless and glass only and no plastic. This one is very well made and and the only plastic on this product is on the inside of the lid, but no where that the boiling water touches. It makes a great cup of coffee and he and my son both are enjoying their cups of Joe very much!
Needed a new French Drip coffee maker and made my choice of this particular one based on the reviews which were mainly ëxcellant. Actually I was quite disappointed after my first use. The coffee maker does the job but the coffee was no better or worse than any other French Drip coffee maker I've used. But the reason why I only gave it an Average rating is because the lid with attached mechanism does not fit tightly (as it should) on to the glass vessal. This means one must be very, very careful when actually pouring or you'll end up with your freshly brewed French Drip coffee all over your kitchen counter.
