4.0 out of 5 stars makes one coffee mug, December 10, 2012
This review is from: Primula Tempo Coffee Press 6 Cup - Black (Kitchen)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have another french press by a very reputable brand.
That one is a 10 cup size.
This one is 6 cup but actually the portion it makes just fills a large coffee travel mug.
The press filter fits the other one but the depth is not enough (the other one being bigger).
The plastic handle and housing holds it firmly. It's easy to press down and makes good coffee very quickly.
But the handle seems weak and not big enough to hold it securely.

My only 2 issues:
1. don't know if the glass container is made of temper proof glass. I know the other brand is. This one, feels kind of cheap. Constant afraid of breaking it when washing.
2. The filter, said by another reviewer, can rust. I haven't observed that situation. Will check in a few weeks and see if it rusts. If it does, DO NOT use. It could kill you.
I will update this in a few weeks if it rusts.

***********
Update after a few weeks of use
I am upgrading it to 4 stars because
1. The press is ver easy to use. The metal plate at the bottom is smaller thus allowing the mesh net to move down easier.
2. The glass vase and the housing are glued together so it is easy to pour coffee without worrying the vase slipping off while pouring.
However, this advantage may turn into disadvantage when cleaning.
3. The handle turns out to be very sturdy and easy to hold.
4. After testing it, the stainless steel mesh does rust, unlike the other review. I tried leaving it in water for a few days and see if there's any rusting, there is none.

I like the pricing, the quality is not bad. The size can be bigger and the glass should be just a bit thicker to get me peace of mind.
I recommend this product.
Mixing tip:
Make sure you stir the hot water and coffee mix thoroughly for about 4-5 min to get the full flavor of the grind.
Sometimes when busy, just leaving it without stirring for a while and then press it down before pouring, the flavor is too thin and lacking the rich texture.
And don't use boiling water to pour directly in. Make sure your rinse the vase with hot water to warm it up. Then wait a couple of minutes after the water boils, then pour into the vase with the ground coffee already at the bottom.
