OXO's French Press – Uncommon Ground

"Coffee Culture" is booming, as evidenced by the number of specialty shops and blogs dedicated to teaching people everywhere the art of a great cup of coffee. Coffee purists believe that a French Press delivers the most satisfying cup for a couple of reasons:

  1. The downward pressure captures the coffee's rich, concentrated flavors
  2. The coffee grounds remain in direct contact with the brewing water, ensuring none of the essential oils are wasted

Still, a very common (and basic) pet peeve that even the most enthusiastic French Press-connoisseur voiced was its difficulty to clean. In typical OXO fashion, we devoted ourselves to correcting this issue with our very own French Press.

Fun Fact:

Food & Wine's senior recipe developer found she could use our Press to make a quick broth by steeping dried mushrooms in hot water and the pressing to pour out the liquid.

OXO French Press
Problems Identified
  • Unequivocally the biggest complaint about a French Press is the cleanup. The nitty gritty is that rinsing alone will not extract every last bit of coffee grounds. Further, dumping large amounts of coffee grounds down the sink can cause clogs in your drain.
  • Without a heat source, the temperature of coffee in a French Press declines faster than other methods of making coffee.
  • Dosage with a French Press can be tricky – too much and the coffee is too strong, too little and it is too weak.
The Process
  • Our first attempt at a cleaning solution for coffee grounds had a center rod that caused hot water to bubble to the top – a non-gratifying (and potentially dangerous) solution.
  • The development team explored a stainless steel housing to encase the glass carafe, primarily because it made the Press more table-friendly. What they discovered was that it actually kept the coffee warmer, longer.
  • Coffee Connoisseurs recommend a 17:1 ratio (that means 17 grams of water to every 1 gram of coffee grounds).
OXO French Press
OXO's Solutions
  • Our patent-pending silicone GroundsKeeper acts as a squeegee along the inside of the glass carafe, allowing you to swipe and dump coffee grounds into the garbage or Compost Bin in one easy step.
  • A sturdy stainless steel housing and glass carafe ensure the optimal brewing temperature and keep coffee warmer, longer.
  • Easy-to-read recommended measurement markings on the GroundsKeeper and carafe help deliver a delicious cup of coffee without all the guesswork.

The OXO Story:

In 1990, OXO staged a revolution (of sorts) by offering an easy-to-use, high-performing alternative to uncomfortable and ineffective kitchen gadgets. OXO's innovative take on the traditional Swivel Peeler, complete with its pudgy black handle, raised consumers' expectations of what could be expected from household products.

Today OXO offers over 800 products, each developed with a close (some might say "obsessive") attention to detail. Our goal is to deliver products that maximize comfort AND performance, illustrating our mission to create innovative consumer products that make everyday living easier.

Ever wonder what makes an OXO product an "OXO Product"?

OXO employees believe there are two rules that should guide product development: First, every new product must deliver a significant improvement over the status quo. Second, the functionality should never be sacrificed to make the product more attractive – above all it should work well.

I will be wary of all OXO products after this experience.
Jan W.
The plastic clip that holds the groundskeeper at the top of the carafe is a REALLY tight fit when it clips onto the glass.

I'm about to place an order for a second Bodum Brazil French press to replace this one.

While the press makes good coffee, I don't recommend buying one unless you're willing to replace it often. It seems one part of another is always breaking. I bought it because of the grounds keeper. But it gets suctioned to the bottom of the beaker making it almost impossible to get out. I cracked the beaker trying to get it out. I finally figured out if you slide a butter knife down the side it helps to break the seal. The crack in the beaker was small so I was able to keep using the press. However, the plunger broke this morning. Things keep breaking on it and at the point it totally unusable. So basically the whole thing broke within a matter of months of purchasing it. I will be purchasing a new french press, but never ever this one again. Invest your money else where. That all being said I gave it two stars instead of one because it does make a good cup of coffee, it's just not worth the hassle.

If you are standing at the store as I was, looking at the design of this product and reaaallly hoping that it works as intended but are skeptical because the grounds keeper seems to stick as you lift it out of the carafe, STOP wondering and buy the derned thing. Oh OXO! How I love your products' ergonomic slipless grips, design solutions, and seemless integration of form and function!

This is ultimately a regular french press but the primary funtion is overridden by the wonderful solution to the funky coffee sludge scraping problem inherent to all french presses - the grounds keeper. After enjoying your pot of coffee, you can remove the press and unsnap the grounds keeper from the rim of the carafe. You will not be able to automatically lift the keeper free so don't try to force it like you're opening a jar of pickles. It's vacuum sucked to the bottom. You need to break the seal. To do this, simply bend the grounds keeper arm over to the opposite carafe rim, hear the unsucking noise and now you can easily lift it out with the coffee sludge. The sludge slips easily into the trash can.

Be aware that the carafe housing is made of metal. It does not insulate heat... For all that is holy, please only pick this press up by the handle when it is filled with boiling water and steeping coffee grounds! Thus far, this is the only design flaw but if you follow the #1 kitchen rule and avoid grasping metal implements that have been in contact with a heat source with your naked hand, it's an easy work around.

I made a video of me using the groundskeeper and wanted to upload it but it was too big. Not going to fool with it, but if you want it, just comment on this review and I'll get an email from amazon. We'll go from there. But anyway good ol groundskeeper willie works great, gets everything really clean. Its definitely not "good idea bad product" but "good idea and you pulled it off whoever designed this must drink press"

A few other points to make:

1. The glass is nice and thick, thicker even than bodum presses, I think, and also has markings on it for making smaller amounts of coffee, which is nice
2. The base of the press is also very thick (not the carafe but the housing), which gives it a "hot pad" like feature
3. The "groundskeeper" is made of silicone, and so far this has not affected tasted at all (nor should it, I think)
4. Very easy to clean, groundskeeper aside. The gasket comes off the plunger, the filter is all one piece and unscrews from the shaft.
5. I mention this in the video, but the metal flange that attaches to the silicone disc to make the groundskeeper runs up along the inside of the carafe. It fits very flush and does not affect the seal.
6. The screen is about as fine as bodum presses I've used, so I get the same amount of crud in the bottom of my cup.
7. Take out the groundskeeper and it will function just like a normal press; i.e. it's not designed so that it will only work with the groundskeeper, which is great.

Overall a very well-made product. Just what I've come to expect from OXO. I am happy with it, although I did get it resale for half price. Big thumbs up.

I like the design but my plunger/filter piece has broken after owning this for less than a year. This was quite a pricey French press and I expected better from Oxo. I'm very disappointed. I'd give it a one but I did like it while it worked.

I had the smaller one of the pair.

I have a theory about making the OXO Good Grips French Press last longer - PULL THE PLUNGER UP using the GROUNDSKEEPER handle - DON'T pull the plunger up using the plunger handle. Yes I know the manual instructs this, but the metal rod to plastic filter connection is too fragile and will give out and eventually break. I know some have had trouble pulling up on the groundskeeper due to suction, but I've not had that problem with mine. The metal rod plunger to plastic screen attachment should last longer because I will only be giving it downward (careful) pressure instead of pushing and pulling it each morning to remove it for more coffee, or before cleaning. I give it 2 stars for durability, 5 stars for convenience, 5 stars for looks, and an overall score of 3 stars. OXO - if you're reading this - take everyone's advice and make the filter stainless steel, with a metal rod to metal filter connection. The complaints due to this persistent flaw will disappear.
