I've made many French Press Coffee brews and highly recommend. One really needs to pour and drink the coffee immediately after pressing for best flavor. Not sure of the point of having an insulated press as any coffee left in the press will get stronger as it reacts with the grounds and develop a bitter undesirable taste.

sadly, most don't realize they should decant the pressed coffee after 4-5 minutes.

I bought this a couple months ago to replace a glass carafe, 10-year-old Bodum Brazil (it was the same price then, so if you're on the fence, you can probably wait a while and get another shot at this price). It's an upgrade.

Pros for the Mueller:

- It's very solidly built (the Bodum lasted a long time, obviously, but the carafe ultimately broke when it took a tumble off the drying rack. No worries with that on the Mueller).

- Less sludge at the bottom of my cup than with the Bodum.

- The coffee stays warmer for longer, especially if you prime the carafe with hot water before adding your coffee.

Pros for the Bodum:

- You can see how much coffee is left. With two people drinking, that can be important!

- No metal-on-metal rubbing sound. This hasn't been a big issue for me, but it drives my wife crazy.

Even:

- Cleaning. The Bodum would get grounds between the carafe and the frame that were near impossible to get out. But I found I could clean the plunging apparatus without taking it apart. The plunger on the Mueller gets grounds stuck between the mesh and the other parts, and I find I have to take it completely apart if I want to be sure I got rid of all of them. Cleaning the carafe, though, is a breeze.

- Flavor. I don't notice too much difference - if any - in the taste of the coffee. I was modestly worried about a metal taste with the Mueller, but it hasn't been an issue.

Overall, if I were buying a new one again, I'd opt for the Mueller, if only for the piece of mind that it's not going to shatter.

I have a different opinion having owned a double wall stainless Bodum for several years. If you leave it unplunged, it gets stronger and eventually bitter. After pressing, I have enjoyed it a long time after. Even the next day it isn't bitter but it is a bit stale.

Fresh coarse ground beans *are* critical. A burr grinder helps reduce the powder. I really like the Bodum screen; it is fine enough to minimize the dust but allows the oils through readily. I have no experience with the one in this deal but it looks like a copy of mine.
Good luck.

I just voted down. This is not a slick deal at all unless you are in it for the bonus coffee canister or the box with flag of Austria. The two stainless 34oz press below have been selling under $20 for quite some time as per camel. This is just pure marketing at work; mislead into thinking it has something to do with Austria or Germany, marked up and then "discounted."

Nothing wrong with a stainless steel French press but this is normal price; not a slick deal.

I decant after brewing, however I think that decanting being necessary is more urban legend and voodoo, than based in facts.

The grounds pressed on the bottom, with the fine mesh screen on top, probably allows for very, very minimal coffee ground contact in the amount of time, one might finish the coffee.

Have had this for about a year after my glass one broke. Works great for cold brews which is easier on the stomach and can be stored in the fridge cold then heated vs. hot brewed which isn't so forgiving when stored & reheated later.

My mom is Austrian, and you are 100% correct.

Designed and engineered in Germany can mean anything including a guy drawing it out on the back of a napkin while sitting in a coffee shop in Düsseldorf airport waiting for a flight to return to Shanghai.

I bought after seeing it was a Cam Cam low. I'll make 28 pots and decide if I want to keep it.

Both yours are slightly more expensive due to the 5% coupon on this deal.

So it's not a SUPER slick deal,. but it IS cheaper than normal by a little bit.



Anyway we've got 2 presses like these (used only for tea)

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JE36GLQ


The first one I bought in 2016... and it's built like a tank. At the time reviews were significantly better than similar, cheaper, models.


The second (allegedly same) item I bought in early 2019...and it turned out to be the same cheaper Chinese model in both this deal and your original links.

All clearly made in the same place with the same parts with different brand names etched on.


It still works fine, but it's definitely noticeably lighter and cheaper construction in general versus the 2016 version... thinner steel, often have to tighten down the filter bits, etc...

Yeah, it definitely muddies the waters in terms of getting authentic reviews. I took them up on their $10 for an amazon gift-card offer for a review (this is Slickdeals afterall, so my final purchase price was $8.97), though I did include a disclaimer about my incentives to review.

i'd agree... most "coffee snob" procedural refinements
and pricey specialty equipment only gets you past that
last 10% towards coffee perfection.

personally i press decant simply out of consistency,
since i do make coffee for other people and don't
want each batch to seem different.
