The Not So Good
100% Stainless Steel (no plastic!)
Double walled to keep coffee hot longer
The French Press holds 34 ounces of liquid. My husband and I have been using this French Press on the weekends when we are both at home and need more coffee. I also use this if I am having people over for a play date. I love the generous size and the double wall design that keeps the coffee hot for a longer period of time. While an electric coffee maker has a warming plate, the coffee can get a burned taste after a while.
One of the things my husband noted is that the top part that you press down is pointed. While most French Presses have a flat top that you would push down with your palm, Francois et Mimi French Press has a pointy top. I use my thumb and index finger to grab and push and the plunger goes down fairly easy. The handle on the side is very sturdy and easy to grab for pouring.
The 100% stainless steel, paired with a vintage design and functional features, Francois et Mimi French Press is a great addition to your kitchen. I would highly recommend this eco-friendly French Press. At the affordable price, this French Press would also make a great wedding or hostess gift.
