Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has now replaced my coffee maker I am over 50 years old and have never owned one of these~ it has replaced my old coffee maker and I will never purchase another Mr. Coffee~ this makes coffee that is comparable to Starbucks~ What a savings! I will be purchasing others for my daughters to enlighten them to the alternative of purchasing expensive coffee drinks outside the home~ I would recommend this product to any and all coffee drinkers~try it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Little Press Makes Delishious Gourmet Coffee I Love my new Monet French Press!!! I have been mulling this purchase around for a few months now. Prices, sizes, materials used, the handle design etc. were my deciding factors. After much research it was a no brainer for me. The Monet is well made and does exactly what it's supposed to! I have read these crazy horror stories and frankly I was worried about ANY French press! I jumped in and am tickled that I did. Also every movie I have seen with Juliet Binoche etc., has THIS model of French Press in them. I figure the French must know what they are doing, duh, French press....so this HAD to be the ONE! It's easy to use and clean. It is not this delicate lil' test tube folks have made it out to be. I'm a lady but not always that coordinated. I do handle it with relative care and I do wash the glass bottom in the dishwasher, (bottom rack) taking care not to let anything else hit it. It has turned out just fine. I wash the press assembly in the sink. I HATE for my coffee to taste like soap! I use VERY little and I only clean the press itself on occasion. I do pour boiling water over it an let it air dry. My roommate loves it so I make about 4 pots a day since I have had it now about a month. I've touched the spout of it to my cup a bit harder than I wanted and no problem. I've rinsed it and hit the faucet a bit and no problem. If you don't man handle the thing I'd say you're good to go. The size is what strikes you as weird. Why so small??? Well, I find that it is for a good reason. If you're a coffee lover and self proclaimed connoisseur as I am, one pot is plenty! I make it almost as strong as I would a 10 cup drip maker. It is then strong but not overwhelming. You get to savor the flavor like never before no matter what brand of coffee maker you have. I've had many different brands in my lifetime-57yrs. The French press is for the purist. It is smooth not bitter. I prefer Columbian or at least a Kona blend. Real Kona costs so much and the Monet press makes the cheapest coffee taste great! I won't use name the brands, but the 2 most popular are gross to me. I will however buy the eight o'clock beans in the Columbian and it tastes gourmet! I have a grinder, but it's best to make it courser than drip coffee for the press. I MILL it at the supermarket not to the coarsest setting, but just passed drip. It sorta like an instant coffee granule size you are looking for. If it's too fine the press won't press down so easily. Too coarse & you are wasting money having to use more. NOW, this press has a fine mesh at the top in the lid so that when you pour, it has that second chance to catch any big stuff. I don't have any big stuff. I guess I am MILLING it properly.Turn the lid the other way and it is a solid plastic piece so the heat will not escape through the pour spout. It's cute and it's mighty. I can't believe it's taken me all these years to get one. Wow, I didn't imagine what I was missing. I asked in the Q & A before I bought this as to what the glass was made of. Read it. It is a special process that allows the glass to heat evenly. I suppose it helps not crack the thing when you pour boiling water in. I put HOT tap water in mine while waiting for my electric pot to boil. I don't want to take any chances of the sharp thermal changes to crack it. I also heat my cup so my coffee stays hotter longer. I say BUY this. Don't be afraid. I get 2 1/2 LARGE mugs out of my 8 cup Monet. I will be buying some demitasse cups so I can actually have 8 four ounce cups, lol. Then I can have my little friends over for an old fashioned, pinkies up...."tea" party! Oh yeah, you can also do loose teas. I like lavender with a little chamomile and spearmint. YUM. Enjoy your press. I am! It's my Christmas present to me ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I purchased this after the carafe broke on my old french press (of another brand). I was going to buy that same brand again, but this was far more affordable & I actually like it better, as far as design & functionality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love press coffee For the price of this press I should not have to hold the top when pouring the coffee. As a result several times I have had to clean up the spill. It finally sunk in and I routinely hold the top when pouring.
