Terribly fragile, cheaply made product!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 20oz French Coffee Press (Kitchen)
I realized this French press was cheaply made when I first opened the box; the carafe was wedged into a poorly-fitting metal base, and when the two came apart, I saw that the base was even thinner than the walls of an average aluminum soda can.
The lid is too large to fit into the top of the carafe; before I even had a chance to use it, I wiggled the lid into place and left it on my desk for an hour or so; when I came back, the carafe had shattered from the pressure of the lid. I didn't even get to use it *once*.
This product is horribly designed, cheaply made, and too fragile to be safe for use (what if it had been full of boiling water when the lid busted the carafe open?). Do yourself a favor and spend the extra $6 on a decent quality French press, and leave this made-in-China POS right where it sits.
