    MEH. IT WORKS

    It works however the metal easily bends when going into the glass container. I know it is supposed to do this however it is really annoying that it does not completely bend back. Also, there is a little black piece of plastic that is supposed to hold the top part of the lid to the metal stick which easily broke off...For the money though, it is worth it in my opinion

    I've been browsing for a french press for a while now and I found out that this was the best one for its price and it holds very well, dropped it once and thought it would break but no, surprisingly it was good! Love making my coffee with this. Tastes great and it's simple to clean. Overall great value and darn makes a good cup of coffee!

    The press is simple and straightforward to use. It does not take very long to make coffee. You do get some coffee grounds in the cup of coffee but, not a lot. Cleaning the press is a pain. There are no filters, lower compartment, or easy way to clean the canister. Grounds end up going down the drain and it takes a minute to get them all out of the canister.

    This French press works very well. When you are pouring you coffee the grounds stay at the bottom. No grounds in your coffee cup. This is what I have been looking for. I have recommended this particular French press to a number of my work associates. The best for your money!!!!!

    Bought this as a replacement for my previous Bodum french press that broke. Nothing different, still brews decent coffee, and easy to use. I was not happy with the way this item was shipped though. This item was not in a product box and there were already scratches on filter and metal pieces.

    I'm so happy that I purchased the French press coffee maker it works wonderfully and always taste fresh. I don't even use my old coffeemaker anymore. I always use my new French press coffee maker . I wish I would've bought it sooner before spending so much money on a electric coffee pot .

    Easy to use and simple to clean. I use cafe bustelo and then I filter any left over ground coffee in a filter net but only a tiny bit of it stays. Try other ground coffee brands if this is a deal breaker but for me that's okay. The coffee taste pretty good.

    Used this to make coffee in the morning and the coffee is great! Of course, you have to get the right kind of coffee and grind it coarser than you normally would for a drip coffee maker but the difference in taste is remarkable.

    I purchased this to save some money on my weekly coffee budget by cutting out trips to Dunkin' Donuts. This press is simple and easy to use. My only complaint is that sometimes the grounds can slip through the plunger.

    This is my favorite French Press. The style has changed slightly over the decades but it is still my favorite. Every 5-10 years, I accidentally drop it on the floor and it breaks. I go right back and buy another one.

    This French press is the real deal. I am more than satisfied with this purchase, every cup of coffee has been smoother than I ever remember coffee being before this French press came into my kitchen.

    I considered much fancier options, but after a little research, learned that a basic model like this one does just a good of job and is easier to store and clean

    Still getting the hang of using a French press. I have yet to experience the perfect cup but practice and technique makes perfect. Also, great for when you don't want to make a ton of coffee.

    Really useful for the days that you get tired of using those k-cups (and I still do!) and want a fuller/stronger brew...also excellent for the unusual blends that might not be available in k-cups.

    Comparing it to other french presses I have owned is is not as nice, the mesh and spring around the press are too loose and coffee grounds end up above the filter.

    I bought it because I live in a small apartment so it's great for space saving. It work pretty good the only thing that I do not like is that the press is not very sturdy.

    I bought 2 of them, because in case it breaks, I have another one. I realize that maybe I did not have to do that. The base is solid and it sits firm..

    This is my first French Press coffee maker. It is surprisingly easy to use and makes fresh tasting coffee. It is important to use medium coarse ground coffee.
