Makes great coffee, no plastic parts. It's a great press!

Summary: I love this ting. Makes great coffee, it's simple, looks great, and there's no plastic parts inside the beaker. The plunger is all metal and the beaker is glass. I'm super weary of heating plastic so this was a big concern for me.
Summary: This is one of those items that needs to be tested before it is reviewed. We've been using this french press for 5 months and it is great. It meets all our needs. 1) great size, 2) almost no sludge in the bottom of the coffee cup, 3) tough (it has survived me for 5 months!), 3) very easy to clean.
Summary: I am very pleased with this press. Since it is completely stainless without any plastic parts, I hope it will hold up for years. The rich flavor of pressed coffee is not to be experienced with a traditional drip coffee maker.
Summary: I found this product while searching for a a way to make coffee where the hot water and coffee do not come in contact with ANY plastic. The filter and plunger are made of stainless steel and the beaker is made of glass.
Elegant, practical, light, durable, awesome price... and makes wonderful coffee!

Summary: I've heard the hype about how good these things are, but I never used a coffee press before buying this. The coffee is so smooth and tasty! Make it as strong as I want, and it's just a dream... never bitter or overpowering! As for this model, I am very happy.
Summary: I know it is a coffee maker, but I primarily use it as a milk frother for cappuccinos and lattes. There are specialized milk frothers out there, but nothing beats the micro-bubbles that this beauty produces. It is fail-proof, provided the milk is the right temperature.
Summary: I bought an expresso maker that made sludgy coffee. I thought I'd try this, and it amde clear-tasting coffe in about 3 minutes more than the sludge-maker. I use it for loose-leaf tea also with the same excellent results.
Summary: I purchased this Coffee Press, after using this type of Coffee Pot when I lived in the UK. Unfortunately, the quality of the beaker is lacking. In approximately 6 months, 3 glass beakers have broken. I have cared for these carefully, rinsing out with hot water before use, to warm the pot.
