Glass container. Check. Stainless steel filter and plunger. Check. Nylon enclosures. Check. Why pay 3 times more for the same product?

A friend recommended I try a French Press and based on the reviews and not wanting to spend a lot, I got this one. Wow! This thing is perfect. Extremely simply to use. Sturdy construction. Works like a charm. GREAT coffee. I will never go back to the pot, and don't waste your money buying more expensive Presses. This one rocks!

I bought this skeptical of the very low price compared to others - as of this time, it's $10 when other coffee presses of this type are going for $20-40. Note that the "cup" of coffee referred to is 4oz, so if you're like me the 6 cups is actually about 24 oz or one cup (ok 2, but I don't have just one).

The glass has already sustained a drop, the pieces come apart easily to clean, and...and it's only $10! I'm buying another for my partner - I highly recommend this for the price. No downside detected yet.

I bought one of these, I cannot complain about the price or the quality of the coffee. But it is pretty cheaply made. First, I had to spend a bit of time bending the strainer assembly so it was on the plunger straight and did not bind or let coffee grounds get past the screen. OK, no biggie. But then one day, while washing it of course, the glass carafe slipped out of the plastic frame and landed in the sink with a crash. S#!t, among other expletives as I recall. So I bought a Bonjour Hugo 8 cup "unbreakable" press, which has it's own demons but will not break into a thousand pieces if I drop it in the sink. I did keep the strainer assembly out of the Primula though, thinking it might come in handy for something one of these days. Maybe sooner than I expect given the track record of the strainers in the Bonjour press failing.

So buy one but be mindful that the glass carafe is NOT held in the plastic frame very securely and will slip out if you invert it while holding it by the handle.

This is a good solid coffee press. It makes coffee. It seperates the coffee from the grounds. It is big enough for me to fill up my 24oz travel mug in the morning and still have a little left for the missus. Simply effective. Easy to clean. If you want something more from a coffee press you don't understand coffee presses. It makes coffe or tea depending on what you put into it.

After drinking more bad coffee than should be allowed at the advertising agency I work (those disposable plastic thingies) I sprung for this coffee press and haven't looked back since. Not my first press but the others broke too often, this one seems a lot more durable and makes two large cups of coffee (not sure where the 6 comes from). I get my coffee ground for filters since I like it strong and just wait a little longer for the "mud" to settle. For those unaccustomed to the heavier texture of the coffee from a press it takes some getting used to but I gotta say, this stuff rocks!

I use this press every morning - faster than the drip coffee pot, which makes too much coffee anyway. :) The carafe broke a couple weeks after I got it, but I emailed the company and they responded (over the weekend!), saying they'd send me a replacement at no charge. Great customer service, and a great coffee press.

I must confer with the other reviews. It has everything you pay [...] bucks for...but its [...] bucks.
Seriously there is no reason to buy a more expensive one... and a french press is a must have for the real coffee lovers.

I got mine 3 months ago. loved it. but dropped it in the sink today and the glass broke. its a bummer but no big deal cuz i'll just buy another one for cheaper than the replacement glasses go for.

All french presses are not created equal. I had a similar size Bodum-brand press for over 10 years that I finally broke (the glass). That one was on sale, and I didn't want to pay a lot for a new one. The glass used for the Primula press is quite thin and easily breakable. I've had this for less than 4 months & the pour-spout cracked off when I hit it against my coffee mug. It wasn't a "smash" or "crash", just a tad more pressure than a "tap". Spend the $ ... go with a Bodum product.

This is a very easy to use french press (coffee press, same thing) and it is very easy to clean. It comes with instructions that include little pictures.

It makes absolutely AMAZING coffee, if you've never had french press coffee you don't know what you are missing! I personally don't like coffee, but I will drink and enjoy french press coffee.

I chose this particular french press because Primula also makes a teapot set (that includes four small mugs and an infuser) that matches this french press. I already had the teapot and mugs so I thought it would be nifty to have the french press match.
