I was very disappointed in the glass version (FPCH32). Product is very flimsy and even started showing rust on the metal bands after only one week of use. I would recommended purchasing a different version.
The glass is so thin that I broke my French press when I washed it for the first use! I ended up throwing it away! I am so disappointed! I have one of the smaller French press and it works just fine even I wash it many times. Therefore I would not recommend this brand to anyone who is looking for a French press.
Great great packing quality filter etc
I temper pot first with boiling water several minutes
Drain then add coffee
I like strong coffee: 2 heaping Tablespoons for each 12 oz approx.
I add coffee into empty pot after pre heating.
Then 3 cups extremely hot water.
Then lower filter n top down into pot; making sure pouring area is over spout. then steep 4 min
