Didn't know there was plastic inside
on February 7, 2013
The steel lid contains a plastic thing inside, it will touch your coffee when you go to pour it unless you lift the lid up a bit. We specifically bought this french press because it seemingly had no plastic in it besides the handle (and a reasonable price of course). (Picture is posted) Works fine so far but would be better if the screen press reached a little lower. Lastly, the steel ring at the top is very flexible, it wasn't a perfect circle when we took the glass out but we were able to bend it back in shape. (it could be helpful in gripping the glass??) Good size though, two servings for me. Oh yeah, but like others have said, the screen only goes down to an inch above the bottom. Mmmm, silty...
ALSO!! Not stainless inside, the metal inside turns black, -can be scratched off but that's pretty scary.
Made in China, if you're wondering.
