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

Bugehoobies, Amazon
16 March 2014
  • 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. Cleanup is easy, each morning I just rinse everything and put it back together, once a week I give it a full wash. Definitely makes great coffee.

Passes the test of time

Tom Matthews, Amazon
20 October 2013
  • 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. I'm pretty sure you can also order an extra plunger if this one goes bad. Highly recommended.

Superior Coffee with the LaCafetiere Press

RA, Amazon
18 July 2013
  • 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. You'll retire your drip, or give it to a thrift after using a good french press such as this one by LaCafetiere. An older review stated they were made in the UK. Not so anymore - the box had "Made in China".

Great product that makes great coffee

MommyR, Amazon
9 March 2013
  • 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. There is no plastic except for the handle, but since this does not come in contact with the water or coffee, it is a nonissue for me. The stainless steel parts seem to be good quaility and the plunger/filter is fairly sturdy when assembled.

Elegant, practical, light, durable, awesome price... and makes wonderful coffee!

jadoba, Amazon
4 March 2013
  • 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. The beaker is dishwashable, and so is the filter. It all comes apart, which is good for cleaning. I love it. And it costs less than a premium drip-brew maker.

I use it as a milk frother for cappuccino

allodds, Amazon
4 April 2011
  • 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. My cappuccinos turn out commercial quality or better, without the fancy machines. Several friends have bought this for milk frothing, after experiencing it at my home.

Better than the expensive expresso maker

Mjski "Mjski", Amazon
8 April 2010
  • 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.

3 Glass Beakers Later

Jane L "Jane L", Amazon
24 March 2010
  • 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. The last beaker I bought, I heard a cracking noise as I poured a cup of coffee. When I removed beaker from frame/cage a piece broke away.
