So I just bought a new french press

... after my current one cracked. I have no idea what happen - I just make my coffee as usual (I'm using a quite coarse grind) and when I plunged the filter it just cracked itseld near the spout. I'm not even pushing it down as hard as when I'm still using a fine ground.

It was a cheap press but I never had any problem with it, not even with near boiling water. But well, now I bought a Bodum just to be sure it won't happen again.

So, anyway. Is there any special care one should take for their press? I'm sure I don't want the same thing happen to my new press.

Get a vaccum coffee maker instead. Better coffee and it's more fun to watch.

Well I did intend to get a vacuum, but not in the near future - I heard the one which is being electrically operated is quite difficult to clean, and I'm not much a fan of those burner on the non-electric model. But I would definitely get one if I have the budget - I'm still looking for a grinder at the moment.

Yeah, French presses do that. It's quite common.

I've been quite intrigued with the coffee vacuum since it was brought up in the last coffee thread. Right now I'm using a french press at work because I'm afraid someone at my place of employment might mistake a coffee vacuum as a bong.....



Not only that, but the seem expensive as all get out.....

If they last you a few years, then it's money well-spent since they are so cheap.

I use a stainless steel French press from Nissan/Thermos. It cost a little more, but I don't know how hard I'd have to press on that bad-boy to shatter it!

Well it's only lasted for less than a year. I am interested with the Bodum Columbia I saw the other day - but stainless steel tends to change the coffee flavor a bit:
