Modern design French press consists of a narrow cylindrical glass jug, equipped with a lid and a stainless plunger, which fits tightly in the cylinder glass beaker and which has a fine wire mesh acting as a filter. Coffee is brewed by placing the coffee and water together, leaving to brew for a few minutes, then depressing the plunger to trap the coffee grinds at the bottom of the glass jug. A French press requires coffee of a more coarse grind than that used for a drip brew coffee filter, such as produced by a burr mill grinder rather than the whirling blade variety, as a finer grind will seep through the press filter and into the coffee. Because the coffee grounds remain in direct contact with the brewing water and the grinds are filtered from the water via a mesh instead of a paper filter, coffee brewed with the French press captures more of the coffee's flavor and essential oils, which would become trapped in a traditional drip brew machine's paper filters. French pressed coffee is usually stronger and thicker and has more sediment than drip-brewed coffee.

Initial Review, Feb. 2015: Had for almost two months now and no issues at all, aside from the mesh screen falling off into the glass canister one morning (didn't realize that when I was rinsing it and letting the screen spin on the spindle under the water flow that by spinning it was unscrewing from the spindle...lesson learned).
I can't attest to how others--who have rated this poorly and say the glass cracks easily--have treated the press, but the directions do explicitly state not to use metal spoons in it, as this could break the glass. I have used this every day for two months, sometimes more than once, and have always only stirred the coffee before pressing with a plastic cocktail stirrer. It works great, cleans easily, and makes a cup of coffee that even I with my unsophisticated palate can tell tastes better than running it through a paper-filter brewer.
Received the new one, yay! But when I pulled it out I noticed the mesh filter was slightly bent in places... I honestly didn't think it'd be a big deal as it was supposed to be smushed against the sides of the pitcher. Well, those little bents meant that the coffee grinds could sneak on through, so I got a mouthful about halfway into the cup of coffee :( Not only that, but the metal attachment at the bottom of the plunger is bent so the entire plunger gets pushed down at a slight angle. I want to bend it into the correct position, but I fear I might break it since it's so flimsy already.
I'll probably put up with having half cups of coffee (also it does NOR make 6 cups!! 3 MAX) until it breaks completely, which won't be much longer, and actually splurge $10 more for a better one! :)
