This handy two in one machine will heat up water and pour it into your French press for a one stop brew shop in the comfort of your own kitchen. No need for separate kettles and no waiting until the water is heated and extra time to pour. All you need to do is fill the water tank, add coarsely ground coffee into the glass carafe of the French press and hit the on button. Brews 4 cups of coffee, equivalent to 17 ounces.
No filters needed, the coffee will start brewing the moment the water starts dripping into the carafe. With a shorter brew time, about 5 minutes, you'll be sipping on your favorite brew in no time. The electric press also doubles as an electric kettle heating water up to 185 degress.
How it Works
- First, you fill the water tank with fresh, cold water.
- Add ground coffee into the glass carafe and press the button. No filter needed.
- When all the hot water is in the glass carafe, you press down the plunger and your coffee is ready to be poured.
- The heating element will also keep your coffee nice and warm.
A Note About Coffee & Cups
Let us break it down for you: Although 8 ounces equals a cup in the baking world, a US cup of coffee is measured at 6 ounces and a European cup of coffee is measured at 4.25 ounces. This is why we sometimes list ounces to paint a more accurate picture of capacity.

- good for the priceReview by Tina

I bought it for my office and I'm very happy with it. Its small, has the water heater included and it makes the perfect amount of coffee for a few people. The good thing is that you can basically make only one cup, if you don't need more. Since you can't put the canister back on the heating plate, you should always plan ahead with the amount of coffee you will need....just as a hint to the previous review: its not good to keep coffee warmed up for a long time anyhow.
I was as well struggling a little bit with the special lid in the beginning, but you will figure it out after the second use, its really not that hard...I think a little common sense isn't to much to ask for.
I did burn myself the first time as well, but there is a big "ATTENTION: HOT STEAM" printed on that very spot. (Posted on 5/14/2014)

The little canister needs a special lid (not pictured anywhere online) for the water to brew, it was very frustrating to get the lid in the right place to stay attached, and then even harder to get the canister into the machine. It took about 7-8 minutes to brew a full canister. I was burned when I tried to remove the canister. Then when you take the canister out, stir, the non-standard plunger lid with the spout is also difficult to get onto the canister just right, you have to line it up just right and twist, but there's no graphic indicators of the right place to put it. Then after you plunge and pour your first cup, there's no way to put the canister back on the heating element to keep it warm without taking out the plunger and putting back on the brewer lid.
As far as coffee quality I was very unimpressed as well. I tried running it with a termometer submerged in the canister and the hot water temp coming out was at best 181. I believe that is far too low for proper coffee brewing. (Posted on 6/18/2012)
