Let's start with the design. This French press has a glass carafe and a metal frame. Even though the box indicates it's dishwasher safe, I decided to wash this by hand. I just didn't want to risk breaking the glass (it's not that the glass is thin, it's just a better-be-safe-than-sorry move). There are "feet" on the bottom, so there's no wobbling, and the handle is solid. Inside, there's a fine mesh filter, so no coffee grounds escape. When you're ready to clean up, you can just wash off the filter, or disassemble the actual "press" portion and stick it in your dishwasher, making clean-up a breeze. This particular French press holds up to 32 ounces of coffee. If counting each cup as 4 ounces, you'll get 8 cups out of each brew.
But what about the actual coffee? How does it taste? I've had coffee brewed in both a traditional coffee maker and a percolator, and in comparison, this French press makes a very smooth brew. No grounds were present, either. I enjoyed making my cup of Joe this way, and I foresee making my coffee this way in the future.
Thank you, Lake House Products, for allowing me to review this French press. I received this product in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
