I've had my two-cup Frieling press pot since 2007 and it's still as functional and gorgeous as it was when I got it. It's thermal, which means the water stays at the right temperature during the entire brewing process and stays hot well after I've pressed. It's durable; my pot shows almost no wear despite using it three or four times a week for the past seven years (with an exception: the finish has some very minor scratches from the nylon scrubbing pad I usually use and the spider below the filter had to be replaced -- an inexpensive purchase from Frieling themselves -- because I accidentally stripped out the threads. My fault.)
I'll definitely get another when (IF) this one ever wears out (but really, I have a hard time imagining that ever happening.) And I'll likely get a second one in a larger capacity for when I have people over.
Get this pot. It's more expensive but it's the best press pot you can buy.
I bought from Frieling directly, via their Web site. I'm pretty sure they have them at other vendors but I like buying from the manufacturer. They ship quickly and I got what I ordered (both times I ordered from them, actually.) I'll buy from them again.
