OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker
Enjoy smooth, low-acid hot or iced coffee without leaving the comfort of your kitchen.
14 Cups of Cold Brew from One Carafe
The OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker delivers smooth, low-acid coffee in just a few simple steps. Add your favorite coffee grounds to the Brewing Container and fill the Rainmaker top with water. You’re done for 12 to 24 hours! When you’re ready to enjoy a hot or iced cold-brew beverage, flip the Brew-Release Switch to begin the draining process. Mix the concentrate with ice and water for iced coffee or hot water for hot coffee. Seal the glass carafe with the included stopper to store leftover cold-brew concentrate for up to two weeks.
4 Simple Steps
Fill the Brewing Container with coarse ground coffee.
Add cold water to the Rainmaker top in a circular motion. Stir grounds further if desired.
Allow grounds to steep for 12 - 24 hours.
Press the Brew-Release switch down to drain concentrate. Dilute concentrate with desired amount of hot or cold water, ice and/or milk.
The cold-brew process makes smoother, less bitter and less acidic hot or iced coffee. Steeping the grounds in cold water releases only the most aromatic flavors. Plus the concentrate created from the cold-brew process stays fresh longer than regular coffee.
The OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker brings the cold-brew process to your kitchen, offering smooth, low-acid coffee without a trip to the cafe. Just add coffee grounds to the Brewing Container and fill the Rainmaker top with water. The Rainmaker ensures that water is distributed evenly over the coffee grounds. Let the mixture steep for 12 - 24 hours. When you’re ready to enjoy, the Brew-Release Switch allows for easy control of the draining process. The stainless steel ultra-fine mesh filter can be removed for quick cleanup.
Once the concentrate is prepared, mix with ice and water for iced coffee or hot water for hot coffee. Milk can also be added. Tea-lover? The OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker will steep and strain your favorite tea into sealable, glass carafe.
For best results, use coarse ground coffee. Finer grounds may prevent the OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker from draining properly.

If you are new to cold brewing and trying to decide whether to try it, I will say that it makes the best coffee, in my opinion. It brings out a lot of flavor, without the bitterness. The biggest con to cold brew in general, is when you forget to make it...
Things that are better on this vs the Toddy:
This one has a valve instead of a cork to drain the coffee, which is not only easier in general; but, I usually get the first cup early in the morning, and then let it brew a few more hours for my wife to drain when she gets up. With the Toddy, I have to pull the cork, get what I want, then reinsert the cork, leaving a few ounces on the counter and my scale to clean up. This one, I can just close the valve, with no mess. Another benefit is that there is no separate cork to be lost.
I like the mesh filter better than the felt ones of the Toddy, and I like how it is held in place, so my kids cannot loose it when they dump the grinds into the compost. It also never needs replaced. We are using the paper filters which are as good as the felt one of the Toddy at keeping the grit out.
I like the stand this one has better than balancing the brewer on the carafe to drain it.
The directions for this one are way easier. You could really make the coffee either way, with either maker. While this one's directions are easier, the Toddy's method drains quicker.
Things that are not as good:
This does not make as much as the Toddy does at a time. Following the directions, we get 24 oz of concentrate (10 oz coffee grinds and 40 oz water). But, there is a lot of head space in this one to increase the amount you make if you do not use the rainmaker. As long as you stick with the 1 ounce coffee grinds to 4 ounce water, you can make more or less. With my last batch I did 12 oz of coffee grinds with 48 oz water; which is what the current directions with the Toddy calls for (28 oz of concentrate); but believe I could do 14 oz of coffee and 56 oz of water if I fill it to the brim (33 oz concentrate). With the Toddy, we followed the old directions and used 16 oz of coffee grinds and 64 oz water (38 oz concentrate). In conclusion, the Toddy can make 2 1/2 more servings than this one can. I doubt anyone will find this math as interesting as I do, but though I should include it for completeness.
This brewer drains slower, but I am pretty sure it is due to stiring the coffee/water mixture, per the directions. When I stired the mixture in the Toddy it took longer to drain also. So, I guess regardless of which brewer you use, if you want quick draining, use Toddy's method; and if you want fewer steps in making it, use this one's method. I can live with the longer draining, because we have always just leave it sitting on the counter for a few hours until we remember it is there anyway.
The paper filter has to be replaced with each brew versus the felt filter of the Toddy's needing replaced every... however long it lasts. I do not know which would be cheaper in the long run, but the paper filter is optional. I have been using the paper filters, but will try my next batch without it, to see how much of a difference it makes.
If I think of anything else I will update this.
I love coffee, however, though I have my likes/dislikes and I know a lousy cup when I taste it - I am not a coffee snob. So if you are, ignore me! If you aren't then read on! :-)
My boyfriend and I had made a pot of coffee every day or so for years. Since we mostly prefer cold coffee - except on those rare nippy SW cold days - we had been brewing it and pouring it into a pitcher that we cooled and then chilled in the fridge. Our old Cuisinart coffeemaker has a mesh reusable filter and it finally came apart at the seams by the plastic at the bottom, and would blow coffee out into basket. When I went to look for a new filter (which I did find, btw) I was poking around looking at coffeemakers in general. It ended up leading me to Cold Brewing, which I started to read about in greater detail. When I discovered that cold brewed coffee was less acidic, I was sold. I love my coffee but both my boyfriend and I can get terribly acidy tummies from time to time. Myself, especially when I am stressed at work or something.
So, I poked around Amazon looking at cold brew systems - reading reviews, checking prices, looking at what you had to buy to use them and keep them up each day. I ended up settling on this unit because of the reviews, the no-need for a paper filter (more on this later) and the price! I happened to get a unit from Amazon Warehouse Deals. I love them, because 9 times out of 10 I get something for a FANTASTIC deal and there is maybe a scratch on it or the box was torn up at most. I've returned a couple things that somehow got through Amazon QC, but that's fine. It was an easy process. That said I got this guy for another ~25% off, and it was a great way to start - especially when compared to the cost of a new mechanical, traditional drip coffeemaker!
The past few weeks I've been playing with it. And here is what I've got so far, especially for other cold brew newbies like me:
- You will need to get a coffee grinder or have ready access to fresh ground COARSE ground coffee. Your regular drip ground coffee won't drain well and will cling to too much of your concentrate when it's done brewing. I got this one and it works great! I will be reviewing it soon: KitchenAid BCG111ES Blade Coffee Grinder - Espresso
-You probably want to use filtered water if you don't already. This is going to sit in water for 12-24 hours, rather than just burst through in a flash like your drip maker does. I use a common Brita.
- Be prepared! Make this ahead of time! It does take 12-24 hours to brew. I have done 18 - 24 hours and that range works great for my tastes. I love the stronger flavor, personally.
- Consider getting another "carafe". I brew my coffee, then drain into the provided carafe because it fits the whole system properly, but the glass - however sturdy they claim it to be - feels too thin for my liking and we have too many klutzes in our house. I put mine in a thick glass pitcher for the fridge. I happen to think that for an OXO product this should have: a rubberized grippy bottom and a rubber grip at the neck (in OXO grippy black of course!). Why this isn't the case is beyond me but maybe they can update in a future model. I would buy that separate if they made it.
Time to make coffee! Here is how I've begun to do it:
- Grind your coffee! Yum, this is fun especially if you've never done it before. It smells amazing! and the coffee made with it is pretty amazing, too! Make sure you grind it very coarsely. I have a method I use with the suggested Kitchenaid grinder I cited above and I will share that in that product's review.
- Remove the rain shield.
- Put about 3.5 cups of coarse coffee (to taste - you may like more or less!) into the reservoir. If you just ground it, let it sit for a few minutes before you add water.
- Double check the switch in the middle of the unit is UP. But to be safe I leave the carafe under the unit while brewing.
- Replace the rain shield (or the sieve like lid, whatever you want to call it)
- Add 5 cups (again, to taste) of filtered water, let it sit a moment, then stir the mixture thoroughly.
- Wait 18-24 hours.
- Replace carafe if you didn't leave it under while brewing as I do, and flip the switch down.
- Wait 10-30 minutes (may be more or less depending on your grind coarseness) for the brew to drain. Maybe gently wiggle the unit a little to assure it all drains out.
- Remove reservoir - covering bottom so you don't drip concentrate on the way to the sink - and do what you do with grounds. We save ours for the roses! :-)
- I immediately rinse and wash everything - by hand - and set to dry.
- Pour about 2oz of the concentrate in your favorite glass, add your cream and/or sugar to taste if desired, fill remaining part of glass with ice, water, milk (again, as desired), stir and enjoy the smoothest iced coffee you've ever had!
Side thoughts and suggestions:
If you see my attached picture (it's not much to look at that isn't already shown in the product page but) you can see I keep mine on a small dish towel. This is actually a pretty stiff towel, as it is backed in a plastic mesh for scrubbing dishes, so I use it to slide the unit under the cabinets while brewing or storing, and out when I am making or harvesting a batch of coffee.
The lid for the carafe - I used it once. Since I don't use the carafe in the fridge, I don't need to lid the coffee in the carafe with the lid. I first used it once for measuring as suggested, but now I can easily eyeball how much concentrate is enough for me, as can my boyfriend. I will keep this, but it's more of "just in case", as I find the carafe a semi poor design for storing the concentrate, and I don't need it for measurement purposes.
Paper filters - it comes with them. I've used them a couple times, and I find it just makes the brew drain too slowly. I didn't find that there was much sediment in the coffee, so I don't find them useful or necessary. This is also subjective, and perhaps objective depending on your grounds, so you may prefer the extra filter for your brew, and find it worth purchasing in the future.
Bottom line: I am in love with this thing! It's a bit more of a process and a wait than my old drip machine, but the brewed concentrate is so much smoother on the tongue and easier on the tummy. It's also made coffee making an enjoyable event. I've spent time hunting for different whole beans, smelling them, grinding them... I also suspect I will continue to play with types of coffee, how I grind it, ratios, etc. It is actually a bit FUN. And the coffee made in the process is fantastic. At this price, whether or not you get a discount for an Amazon Warehouse purchase, I think it's a bargain. And that is even counting the cost of the little coffee grinder I picked up.
If you have questions or suggestions, please leave a comment! Thanks and hope this review helps! :-)
UPDATE 12/29/2016: Nothing in particular to say except that it has been about half a year since I got this machine. It still works great, nothing is broken or wonky and it was a bargain for how much it gets used and the yummy smooth coffee it makes. Still the only thing I dislike is the carafe. Oxo - Make the neck more indented and/or covered in your Oxo rubber-grippy stuff! And the bottom, too! I would never put this thing in my fridge. It would get smashed to bits.
UPDATE 03/23/2018: Time flies - and I am due for an update. It's pretty simple - It still works great. Looks almost new. Nothing broken or worn out. This was a great deal and barring dropping it I suspect it will be worry free for years to come. It also rocks cause it doesn't use power which means there is no electrical component to go on any sort of "fritz". It also makes it low impact and maybe even something you could take camping (surely without the awful carafe!) or use in a tiny home, etc. I am pleased with this item and very glad I got it some years ago. Good luck to you, too! :-)
