I just cannot recommend this pot enough! Get yourself one if you've ever thought about it.
Positive Product Points
Ease of use. Price. Indestrucability. End product.
Negative Product Points
I have been using this pot every day for about six months and could not be more pleased with the results. Having never before used a press pot I was astounded by the difference in taste and quality when compared to my various drip makers.
It's very easy to clean up, you can stir the heck out of your grounds prior to steeping with no worry of cracking the pot. I have the Chambord version that I use only for company who want to see the process take place otherwise it's always the Columbia.
As I roast and grind all of my own coffee I am enjoying coffee more now than in the previous forty years I have been drinking it.
Purchaased off the Bay without any problem and at a great price.
Three Month Followup
Same as my initial review.
One Year Followup
My 1 year followup would appear to be redundant as I would reiterate everything I said in my initial review. The stainless model is bullet proof and I will never be without one.
