Posted Wed Oct 16, 2013, 2:04pm Subject: Size Matters...(Frieling French Presses)
I really want to get a french press--and the Frielings look like they are built to be indestructible (all stainless, no plastic).
The problem is I can't figure out what size to get. I typically make at least an 8 oz cup each day, but like to often fill a 12-15 oz thermos to take out with me.
The second smallest model (called on some of Frieling's pages the "16 oz" and others the "17-22 oz") looks like it could do the trick, but I'm concerned that I'll be doing something wrong by often filling it to 8 out of the stated 22 oz capacity. The 8 oz model is called an 8-11 oz model on some pages, but I'm a little worried that this model might be too small if its max is really only 8 oz.

Not at all. :) As long as you got the coffee to water measured out and the grind to your liking your all good. I have an 8 cup that I usually just use for 3-4 8 oz cups. If your using a 16 oz cup go with a min 2 cup press. PS: I know the Frieling's are SS but unless you are storing the breed coffee in the press itself a glass press will do. Most are built with Pyrex so they are pretty durable. I prefer glass. Prettier. I have no issue with heat retention ever.
