Contemporary look and practical design
on March 2, 2007
I wanted a coffee press or a 'plunger,' as they call it in Australia, as a backup for our regular drip coffee maker. Living in a rural area, we tend to lose power several times each winter, and vowed not to chew the grinds in 'camp coffee' every time. Of all the models, I chose this one for it's attractive, whimsical design, and protection over the glass beaker. The body exterior is rubber and clear plastic, which protects the removable and replaceable glass vessel within. The handle is sturdy. The plastic top cover feels a bit flimsy, but seems fine, since it doesn't do any hard labor. The plunger itself works as well as any other I've used (belonging to others). A bonus that I didn't expect, is the extra insulation the outer skin provides, keeping the coffee hot for a lot longer than a naked glass pot.
