Frieling French Presses Win 2017 Housewares Design Award. An independent panel of judges selected the Frieling French Presses as the winner for its superior design, appearance, function and originality. Frieling’s French Presses feature a patented dual filtration system combining a pre-filter and an exclusive super-fine screen for better coffee. The screen catches coffee grounds that may have passed through the pre-filter, eliminating bitter aftertaste and sediment in the cup. A stainless steel ring inside the coil prevents grounds from bypassing the filter. A tribute to simplicity, style and smart design, these models are double-wall insulated to retain heat up to four times longer than a glass press.

I had several wishes:
1) Made in USA or Europe
2) Quality of materials and product
3) Usability (easy to use and to clean)
After a quick search I realized that there was no ideal French Press coffee maker. However, I realized that I have several favorites and Frieling was the number 1 for me.
1) Frieling is a solid professional brand
2) Product had good reviews
3) Product looked solidly built.
Concerns that I had:
1) Made in China (I have nothing against China but I prefer products that are built in here or in Europe for, I assume, obvious reason)
- Nothing can be done about that. But again, Frieling is a solid brand and their French Presses looked not cheap.
2) Quality of Steel (Everyone should be concerned about it since you will eat/drink food that was made there and we consumed enough toxins as it is)
- I contacted Frieling about it and they answered me very quickly. Thank you, Frieling! Other companies are not that professional. For example, Cousinox ignored all my emails. However, the answer from Frieling was not what I wanted to hear. They told me they use either Chinese or Korean stainless steel from a big Korean manufacturer but they assured me that their 18/10 stainless steel was of high quality. I hoped for German, Russian or American 18/10 stainless steel but at least it was not a noname brand one from G*d knows where.
I thought hard about those two minuses, plus the product was not cheap. But at the end, I felt it was the best French Press I could find and I decided to buy Frieling Brushed 18/10 Stainless Steel French Press, 23-Ounce. I paid $79 for it, I see that now it is $59.
So, it has been two years and I love it and gave it 5 stars.
1) The coffee maker looks like new and is beautiful. I have used it at least 100 times, most likely more. I am glad I decided to get a brushed one. They always look like new for a long time since micro scratches are not noticeable and no finger prints.
2) It is made well. You can see it is not a $20 one.
3) It is very easy to clean. I have owned at least 4 different french presses before and always had issues. With this one, I just put a plunger under running water and that is it. Plus, all the parts are dishwasher safe. I usually hand wash it ones every two weeks. Put it in dishwasher at least 10 times too and had no issues whatsoever.
4) Makes good coffee - only remember about a 4 minute rule.
5) I purchased some parts (screens, plunger stick) but it looks like the original parts will last for years to come.
I am going to add some pictures too.
Good luck in your search for a perfect French Press maker and I hope it was useful for you!
The pot still looks like new. Never had to replace a single part. I always handwash so it's always available. Usually I drink coffee immediately after it's been brewed. Occasionally I have come to a half full pot after a few hours and observed the coffee was still warm.
If you're single and a coffee fiend (like I am), this will meet your needs. If your SO is a coffee fiend as well, get a larger version of this pot. If you're a couple of average coffee drinkers this size pot should meet your needs as well.
Advice for a good pot: Always grind your beans prior to brewing. Use a kitchen scale to measure as they are more accurate than scoops. For the perfect brew temperature every time, heat water in a kettle, take it off the heat when it whistles and then wait 45 seconds before you pour it over the coffee grounds. Put the plunger on the top. Press down after 4 minutes. Enjoy!
If the plunger ever becomes stuck it means too many fine grinds are clogging up the mesh. Grind coarser next time. To save your current pot, don't force the plunger. You won't break it, instead will end up with a mess in your kitchen and can be burned by the hot coffee. Take the plunger off the pot, rinse the mesh part off in the sink with some of the remaining hot water from the kettle (or very hot tap water) and then plunge again. Worked every time I had to do this.
This pot is also superb for making cold brew. Grind the beans like you'd normally do and place them in the pot. Now pour cold water in the pot. Put the plunger top on the pot but do not press down. Put it in your fridge for 24 hours. Take it out of your fridge and then plunge. You will have delicious cold brew coffee that's lower acid than traditional coffee.
You can also brew tea loose tea with this pot. I don't have much experience with this, but I've done it a few times and it works just like it does with coffee.
1) the stick "gasket" broke off the lid. I see this happening in other reviews. It happened to me too. Didn't expect this with normal use in year 1.
2) it's not great at keeping coffee hot. It's average to below average. Considering it advertises "double wall" I might consider this a failure.
As a point of comparison, I took my double wall water bottle, one of the most common models , typically $30 or so. I put hot coffee in it... This water bottle did much better at insulating and holding heat. A double wall should not result in the exterior of the container to get hot (or cold)... This frieling item gets hot... That's evidence of a failure to insulate. Loss of the heat traveling to warm the exterior. Failure.
Considering the price... A big failure. You really has one job.
The mesh filter fit snugly. However I had to bend a metal collar to prevent it from a scratching the inside.
Cleans up easily....
Overall it works as well as a $35 item... But I paid over $90.
Save your money get a cheaper one or find a better one.
