Positive Product Points

The Frieling Staninless Steel THERMAL French Press 20-fl.-oz 8"  Why? Simply its Duarabliity, Thermal - Ability and then Aesthetics.

Negative Product Points

Wished it had a pop off duarable screen to clean and spoon or spatula to take out the coffee grounds. Unscrewing the screen off each use is combersome.

Detailed Commentary

Is probably so far the best coffee press I have owned and have recommended to many others and will have it in my caffe in the new year and may focus most on using this as my primary serving of American Coffee. I say this only due to my time spent in Europe and they consider coffee to be espresso. It truely does keep the coffee very warm for at least an hour however by this time coffee should be already had. I am one to not want to buy twice and after the first time I broke my glass craft in the commonly made french press I was annoyed. I ended up just buying another one which then broke. I gave up until this caught my eye. There is a pleasure in seeing the coffee with the light brown foam when first poured thru the glass but the practicality of the Stainless Steel Frieling far out weighs the need to see it. The pour of the coffee once steeped the correct time is small direct and controlled. The after drip or splashing back is very minimal.

The base seperates the transference of heat fairly well. The heavy duty handle is comfortable and easily gripped and cool to the touch. The shine of the pot is pleasant but wish it was scratchless. When searching out products for commercial use it is so important not to have to replace product and this will be the press I will use in the new year when operating my caffee in Bellingham, WA.

Buying Experience

Buying from Williams - Sonoma has always been pleasant so...Far. wish one was in Bellingham, WA.
