Product Description

Make way French presses! The Frieling Insulated French Press is a step-up from your average French press with it's double wall insulation. It keeps it's contents hot four times longer than your basic glass French press. Made of double wall stainless steel and an all steel mesh plunger mechanism, this coffee press will keep the drinks steaming hot and can also be used as a stylish pitcher for cold drinks such as water, milk, iced tea and juice.

The Frieling French Press comes in five sizes:

  • 1 or 2 cup = 8oz
  • 3 or 4 cup = 17oz
  • 5 or 6 cup = 23oz
  • 7 or 8 cup = 36oz
  • 8 or 9 cup = 44oz

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.

Pros
  • Hot, Hot, Hot - With a double wall feature and made of stainless steel, this press guarantees that your hot drinks will stay hotter four times longer than the average glass French press.
  • Take Your Pick - You won't be confined to just one size, since this press comes in four different sizes ranging from 1-8 cups.
Cons
  • Clean-Up - Clean up isn't always easy as many grounds and silt get stuck within the plunger filter, so make sure to carefully clean and rinse the filter after every use.

So, if I wanted to make coffee ahead and keep it hot for my housemate who wakes up an hour later, would this work for that? I have heard that coffee continues to brew even when you have pressed the plunger down in a french press.
annie on Aug 10, 2014
Best Answer: Hi Annie - The folks at Seattle Coffee Gear asked my to try to answer this question for you because I bought this press from them late last Fall.

In a nutshell I'd doubt it. The coffee would probably still be warm after an hour, but not hot (I think there are two walls to the press but it's not a true vacuum bottle). I don't know if the coffee continues to brew over time, or not. But my sense is that the fresher you drink your coffee the better.

Over time it loses some of it's brightness, and becomes a little acidic to my taste.

I've tried saving newly pressed coffee into a vacuum bottle (thermos here in the States, although that is a named brand as well) and while the coffee remains much hotter than if left in the press for more than a few minutes, the coffee quality still degrades.

Obviously YMMV, but the above is my experience. The metal press keeps my coffee hotter than my glass counterpart, but probably no more than 30 minutes, and even then with a slight taste degradation.

HTH,

R

How does it pour? I have a stainless pot that dribbles with every cup. I am very hesitant to buy if the Frieling Press dribbles, especially for the money.
presseeker on Aug 11, 2012
Best Answer: The Frieling Press pours very nicely and does not dribble.

good quality stainless steel is always, always a no-brainer

AND years down the road, when it is 'still' good quality stainless steel, but a bit grimy--- just give it a scrub with a good metal cleaner------NEW AGAIN, with some character !

I brew coffee in all styles. Like the rest of the world, I've used and enjoyed the Bodum products. The Frieling adds elegance & insulation. It's nice to brew a pot & slowly fill your cup & know the proper temperature is maintained. The appearance is beautiful & the brew is as expected from a French press. On all French press devices, I prefer darker roasted beans. (Posted on 9/17/2014)

I love this. I've used many different presses and this is by far the best. It is not that the coffee tastes better than in a glass press, but it definitely stays warmer and there is virtually no sediment. The polished finish shines up nicely and clean up is the easiest. I ordered the 36 oz because I like 3 nice size mugs of coffee (10-12 oz). (Posted on 5/30/2014)

I bought the 36oz and wish I would have waited for the 44oz to be in stock, however, I do love the one I have. I may have to order the 44oz eventually though. The coffee tastes SO much better made in the Frieling than any other coffee maker I have used, if you follow the easy directions that come with it. Easy cleanup, very durable, and aesthetically pleasing. (Posted on 4/29/2014)

When I order the 23 oz French press I figured I would be able to get 4 cups out of it. I am able to get 2.5 tops. This is probably cause I didn't account for the grounds taking up space but wish I would have gotten a larger size. (Posted on 12/10/2013)

I had two glass carafe french press coffee makers previously. Both glass carafes broke while cleaning. I needed something better that would not break. I bought this little unit. It makes just enough for two coffee mugs. I use it just for myself on the weekends. Works great! (Posted on 3/9/2013)
Some Frieling Tips and TricksReview by Carl May
Quality
Price

1) BREWS AT THE RIGHT TEMPERATURE: It is true that the Frieling will keep your brewing coffee hot: Between 195-205 degrees F during the ENTIRE brewing cycle, especially in the larger sizes ( the brew temp. highly recommended by the Specialty Coffee Association of America).

2) PRE-WARM YOUR FRIELING: To ensure you brew at higher temperatures, boil double the amount of water needed. When at the boil, fill your empty Frieling with off-boil water, pour it out, fill with coarsely ground coffee, then fill the Frieling to the desired amount. This is especially useful for the smaller Frieling sizes when temperature loss is greater than with the larger sizes.

3) EASY CLEAN-UP: Here is how to easily clean the plunger assembly's filter screens: After disposing of the grounds, rinse with hot tap water, fill again with hot tap water, then replace the lid and plunger. Holding the lid securely with one hand, rapidly push the plunger up and down several times...bottom to brim

The turbulence created should then dislodge coffee any particles caught in the screens and in the frame of the filter assembly. Works for me. I give it 4.5 stars for ease of cleaning,...using this method.

I was wondering how this expensive French press coffee maker compared with my very cheap $10 one. I just did the taste test, and the more expensive one from Freiling is the unequivical winner. The coffee is stronger, more robust, and doesn't include as much residue in the drink. The Frieling press is solid, heavy, and the parts seem to be precision-made. I can't see how this coffee press could have any more quality built into it - it is a perfect example of German engineering and design. It is a bit pricey, however. (Posted on 2/3/2013)
The Winning French Press Coffee MakerReview by Whole-Hearted

We love coffee at our house! I’m kinda finicky about it. My husband, Gary on the other hand, is willing to drink most anything labeled “coffee”. I like mine either steaming hot or ice cold. Gary, however, could drink coffee at any temperature! It’s difficult for me to swallow coffee that has been cooking half the day, while Gary will drink it if there’s nothing else available. I am thankful that we both like our coffee bold and black. We jokingly refer to weak coffee as, “church coffee” because our experience has been that most congregations make very diluted coffee.

I’m thinking Gary must get his love for coffee from his momma! This sweet, 90 year old lady prepares her drip coffee maker before bed so that all she has to do in the morning is push the button. However, “unable to wait” for the coffee to brew, she makes a cup of instant coffee using the boiling water mechanism at her sink so that she can be sipping while she’s waiting for the drip maker to complete its cycle!

A few years ago, we had the privilege of visiting a “house church” in Ireland. We learned quickly that the Irish tend to be very fond of coffee! In fact, the true Irishman drinks coffee with “a little sugar, a jigger of Irish whiskey, and a float of lightly whipped cream”! Without the Irish “additives,” we were introduced to French Press coffee! In our opinion, French Press coffee is unsurpassed and we’ve been somewhat dissatisfied with anything less since!

We’ve owned a number of coffee makers through the years: drip, percolator, espresso, etc. but never a French Press. I’ve spent a fair amount of time researching these coffee makers shortly after our return from Ireland, but never took the plunge to purchase one. Our drip maker is on its last leg, however so I’ve been back to researching French Presses. I nearly over-loaded with all the descriptions, reviews and consumer reports, yet all that homework helped to make a decision that we are not sorry for! I thought all you coffee connoisseurs out there might be interested in our conclusion.

In my search, I found everything from the “Rolex of French Presses” for home use priced at a walloping $3,000 (no kidding) to $4.50 fly-by-night models. With all these options, how did we make our final decision?

Things we were looking for:

• Pure, rich coffee flavor
• Non-toxic plastics, glass or metals
• Unbreakable
• Quality > Plunger seals often leak coffee grounds
• Durability > Plunging mechanism often bends
• Insulation for retaining heat
• Capacity for coffee drinking visitors
• Must also brew tea
• Availability of replacement parts
• Cost effectiveness > no need for expensive filters
• Easy to use and clean
• Quick > No time to waste for morning coffee!
• Non-electric > Must have coffee in a power outage!

The winning French Press coffee maker?
Drum roll…….
The Frieling!

This coffee maker meets our criteria with:

• insulated double-walls which retain heat four times longer than glass!
• an unbreakable, toxic free, 8/10 stainless-steel body inside and out!
• the ability to make French press coffee or tea and the bonus of a sleek looking carafe which doubles as a serving pitcher for any beverage!
• its 33-Ounce capacity to serve several guests!
• replacement parts available from Frieling!
• ease of simply pulling the plunger out of the carafe and washing both by hand or in the dishwasher! No parts to disassemble!
• no need for expensive filters!
• having no power cords! We can brew and serve right at the table even in a power outage!
• its durable and tightly sealed all-steel mesh plunger mechanism can be used with coarse coffee grounds or loose tea leaves without bending the plunger or having grounds seeping through!
• ease & speed of simply scooping ground coffee into the press, filling it with near boiling water, placing the lid/plunger unit on top and steeping for 4 minutes! Slowly press the plunger down and voila, coffee ready to serve!
• And we can’t be more satisfied with the pure, bold flavor!

Have a love for bold coffee flavor?
A French Press can’t be beat!

Have no idea where to start your search for a quality French Press without spending a fortune?

In our opinion, there’s no need to look any further than the Frieling Polished Stainless Steel French Press!

My husband and I camp every year in northern Maine where there is no electricity or water. We love coffee in the morning and tried various options over the years (perc, instant, none ....). We tried this french press this year. The coffee is FABULOUS. It was very easy to use and clean up. It kept the coffee very hot which is important when it's 30 degrees and no heat! We love it so much - we're going to use it at home. The coffee is so much better then our drip maker. Highly recommend. (Posted on 9/22/2012)

Coffee nerd wannabe here. Good-looking press, good weight, so you're never concerned about accidentally knocking it over. A simple rinse doesn't get the outside looking real good; the smooth outside surface attracts fingerprints and gunk (Posted on 5/31/2012)

This is the best press that I have used, to date. The fit between glass and filter screen is better (tighter) than Bodums which I have owned in the past, resulting in far less ground leakage into the coffee. Thermal properties of insulated double-walled caraffe are indeed nifty.

Cons: Prone to geekiness. I have found myself walking around with it a couple of hours after brewing, drinking directly from the spout.

Many positive comments at camp, still, no one managed to permanently 'borrow' it!

Pros:
Easy To Use, Quick Brewing, Easy To Clean, Great Taste

Cons:
