Great press, except for the easily breakable beaker
on July 17, 2017
In the last three years since I've discovered this french press, I've been through four replacements. I LOVE this french press - it gets the job done and is a good price. I like that the lid has the "grated" pour spout and the filter components are high quality. However, I'm only rating this product three stars because of the glass beaker, which breaks very easily. My beakers have broken from trying to remove the plastic cage for cleaning, from having a plate bump into one, and two have broken simply from falling over in the sink. To buy a replacement beaker costs just as much as the french press itself. After the last press broke, I moved to a different brand, Primula, which I found at Macy's. It doesn't filter out all the grounds but boy, does the glass hold up!
I would buy this product again if the quality/thickness of the glass was improved, or if the price of the replacement beaker was lowered.
