The Body

Frieling French PressThe Frieling Polished Stainless Steel French press is one of the best sellers, but not only for its gorgeous looks. The Frieling French presses are made of double wall 18/10 stainless steel and are virtually unbreakable. These are built to stand the test of time.

The double wall insulation will also retain the heat 4 times longer as compared to a glass French press. It is still advisable to transfer the coffee that won’t go directly into your cup, into another insulated carafe to prevent further extraction. But if you are making cold drinks such as juice, then the double wall insulation will keep cold drinks cold without having a problem of over extraction.

When preparing coffee for any guests, the beautiful construction of the press can surely impress when you entertain. The Frieling stainless steel press has a mirror finish on the outside and brushed finish inside. The design of its handle also has good ergonomics and is perfectly balanced for easy pouring. The pot is really beautiful to look at and the picture doesn’t really capture its modern design.

The press can easily be dis-assembled for easy washing and is dishwasher safe. The product also comes with a 5 year warranty from manufacturing defects.

The Plunge

The plunger assembly has all metal construction which means that everything will stay together and aligned. This is also one of the buying decisions for consumers who do not want a press with plastic/silicon/steel filter system. Although you need to insert a bit more pressure when pressing down the plunger compared to the usual coffee presses.

The Taste

There are consumers who wanted to bring a French press when traveling and found the Frieling French press to be a good fit even for rough transport, thanks to its stainless steel construction. But what surprises them is the taste of the coffee. For first time French press users, it was one of the best coffees they have ever tasted. The coffee tasted significantly better, it offers a  fuller taste retaining the coffee’s natural oils. Even decaf coffee has more body and character. They also stressed that there is no metallic taste either, if it’s a concern.

Consumer Reviews

A consumer reported to have owned the Frieling French press for over 10 years and it is still working just fine. He also mentioned that he is using the press everyday and it always goes into the dishwasher for cleaning. So not much of a repeat business for Frieling (except the filter mechanism), but it proved how durable their products are. Another consumer enjoys bringing the press for traveling as it can withstand a good tumble in the backpack. So basically all positive reviews and Frieling’s product descriptions are true that this French press is extremely well made and the thickness combined with good craftsmanship are superb.


The Frieling Polished 18/10 French Press is our #1 pick for the best stainless steel French press coffeemakers. It is easy to use, easy to clean in the dishwasher or by hand, and makes excellent coffee. This may not be the cheapest, but the press is extremely well made and almost like a bulletproof. So you’ll eventually save money in the long run if you choose the Frieling Stainless Steel Press over glass coffee presses.
