French press coffee is a fabulous way to really taste coffee. No paper filter barriers, just great taste. Good Grips takes it up a notch with the innovative grounds lifter that captures brewed coffee grounds to remove them after you enjoy your brew. The glass carafe is encased in stainless steel, with a non-slip soft handle and plunger for easy (and comfort) of use. The 8c capacity is perfect for two big mugs or four smaller ones. The glass carafe is tempered borosilicate and is heat resistant. We recommend hand washing. Also available in smaller 4c version.
