Bodum Chambord French Press

Best overall

The Bodum brand is synonymous with a good coffee experience, and the Bodum Chambord French Press does not disappoint. Made of durable borosilicate glass and a BPA-free plastic handle and base, you get up to 12 ounces of tasty coffee. The plunger, made from stainless steel, has a mesh filter that extracts the aromatic oils from the fresh grounds. This elegant design is sure to complement any kitchen decor.

Frieling French Press Coffee Maker with Patented Dual Screen

Best high end

The patented, double-walled stainless steel Frieling French Press Coffee Maker comes with a 36-ounce capacity and measures at 10-inches high. The outside is kept at room temperature to prevent anyone from getting burned, and the inner vessel contains a pre-filter, super-fine mesh filter, and metal wire (to keep the plunger tight against the sidewall), so the grounds are kept separate from the brewed coffee. A mirror finish gives this French press a clean and simple, yet elegant, look.

Bodum Brazil French Press

Best on budget

There's no need to sacrifice any coffee quality because of budget concerns. The Bodum Brazil French Press satisfies both needs. The borosilicate glass does not absorb any oils for an unadulterated coffee taste. (The stainless steel plunger and mesh don't interfere with your coffee's taste either.) Brew up to 36 ounces of coffee and then take this press apart to wash it by hand or put it into the dishwasher to clean.

Ceramic French Press Coffee Maker

Ceramic and different

An unconventional French press, the Ceramic French Press Coffee maker is one-of-a-kind. It provides barista-level coffee but is designed to look like a classic German beer stein. With a capacity of 40 ounces, you can serve freshly-brewed coffee to a group or the whole family. This item fits a rustic farmhouse-style kitchen perfectly.

Espro Press P7 Stainless Steel French Press

Elegance and durability

Make 32 ounces of perfect coffee with the Espro P7 Stainless Steel French Press. It comes with a double-walled exterior and micro-filters that have twice the filtering power of other similar French presses. A double lip seal stops over-extraction and keeps the grit firmly separated to give a flavorful cup of coffee. The vacuum-insulated double walls will keep the coffee hot for long periods.

OXO 11181100 BREW Venture Travel French Press

Best for travel

Take the shatter-resistant OXO Venture Travel French Press with you for any outing. The convenient window shows how much of the 8-cup capacity remains while the innovative silicone gasket seal keeps the grounds at the bottom. The pouring spout also acts as a secondary filter, should any grounds escape. This BPA-free Tritan carafe is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.

SterlingPro French Press Coffee Maker

Best large and insulated

A trendy choice, the SterlingPro French Press, has been one of the first to use the innovative two-screen filtering system to give a granule-free cup of coffee. Built with a capacity of 36 ounces, the SterlingPro keeps the coffee hot even after two hours. The plunger stops at 1.5 inches from the bottom, which allows the grounds to release their flavor without damaging the screen.

A clean, aromatic cup of coffee can only be enjoyed from a French press

Taking very little counter space, and not requiring any pouring technique, the French press provides a rich and aromatic experience. Enjoy it thoroughly with the cultivated Bodum Chambord French Press, which not only gives the maximum flavor but looks good too. The borosilicate carafe will not absorb any oils, providing the richness of taste you deserve.

If you own a Bed and Breakfast or just dare to be different, why not create a rustic look with the Ceramic French Press Coffee Maker? Its unique German-inspired style offers a classic beer stein look. It will not only be a conversation piece but will provide great coffee too.

Make that next coffee cup an experience to be enjoyed.
