Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Frieling Brushed Stainless Steel French Press, 36-Ounce (Kitchen)
I've been a fan of French-press brewed coffee for years. But after going through umpteen glass carafes due to breakage, I started looking for alternatives. I've tried using plastic carafe types, but the plunger assemblies always leave something to be desired for in quality, I haven't found one that isn't cheap and flimsy. Hesitated before purchasing this because of the price, but after having it for a few weeks, I'm extremely happy with it. The quality of the press is top notch. I really like the brushed stainless steel finish, it's very forgiving of finger prints (unlike polished stainless steel). The pluger is robust, durable, and serviceable. Very easy clean-up, I just dump the grounds, rinse, and give it a quick wipe-down with a paper towel.
Update: 1+ year later and the press still looks as good as the day I got it. The filter screen is still in excellent condition which has not been the case on other presses I have had after extended use.
Update #2: 2+ years later and everything I said in my 1st update is still true.
