The handle does feel a little weak as it is not attached at the bottom but I carry it full from my water heater/cooler to my room/office everyday and have yet to feel the urge to grab the bottom, post fear time mentioned above, lol.... It seem to be good, not super strong but it is safe and functional thus far.
I have been using regular ground Folgers and get some minimal grounds but when I use whole bean and my grinder, set to course, I get no grounds but a nice clean cup of coffee.
All in all.... for the price, I would recommend this to anyone as it is a great little product. Buy with confidence, this is a great product! :)

Still using every day and it is still going strong..... not a single problem, no cracks, no breaks, no anything! I would recommend this product to ANYONE... I do not know where any bad reviews could come from as this is a great product, been using it everyday, several times a day for the last 5 months. :)
The only drawback I've found so far is that the top overhangs the carafe, so with its smallish spout if you attempt to pour too fast coffee dribbles down the side. A little patience solves this problem, but I'm not patient by nature.
17 MAY 2014 UPDATE: After a few days I discovered a simple solution to the dribbling problem: by just using my thumb to pull back on the lid (in a motion similar to using one of those syrup dispensers they have at most pancake restaurants) it enlarges the area above the spout enough to prevent dribbling. The handle is perfectly positioned to facilitate this, so it's already become a habit and no more dribbles!
This press has done the trick perfectly! I've been able to brew a single cup for myself or up to three (decently sized) cups for myself and my friends. Just throw in some boiling water, a few heaping tablespoons of grounds (I had to experiment to find the right amount for each person's preferences), and press down about 2-3 minutes later.
The press cleans up relatively easily, though the glass definitely shows water stains. The only reason for the 1 star loss is the filter - it has almost separated from the plunger on me a time or two, usually because a few grounds have made their way in between it and the plunger and gotten stuck. This was remedied fairly easily with some vigorous rinsing, but can still be annoying (those brews tend to have a few grounds in them at the end).
The wonderful thing about presses in general, as opposed to standard coffee filters, is that the oils from the beans, which give coffee a smooth, rich taste, are not caught in the paper filter and discarded. I find I'm able to brew and enjoy both extremely strong coffee for big caffeine boosts, and much lighter brews for flavor and still be satisfied with the outcome, regardless.

I enjoyed this french press until the container cracked while washing. Is it possible to order a replacement part (the plunger is intact).
So much better than a hulking appliance on my counter. It has held up well after months and is the perfect solution for the coffee lover who values using space wisely.Published 18 months ago by Karissa
Wow, took me a while to realize that mine never came with the plastic base. So without it, it doesn't sit totally flush and steady.Published 19 months ago by chrispartida
