A few weeks ago, I was asked to try out & review a French Press from Kitchen Supreme. The French Press is glass & chrome, and is good for tea and coffee. It comes with a coffee scoop, 4 extra filter screens, a Unique Spoon (bent to sit on the cup rim), and instructions. I actually picked up a box of Lipton Loose Leaf Tea from the grocery store to try out with this.
To start, placed a scoop & a half of tea in the French Press. I then heated up water in my tea kettle. I took it off the heat just before it started whistling so that it wasn’t boiling. I didn’t want to risk breaking the glass, so I let it sit for a minute or so before pouring it into the French Press. After pouring, I let it sit for a minute or so, then gently stirred everything. I then put the lid on with the press all the way up & let if sit for another few minutes before I slowly used the press.
It made about two large cups of tea, and the lid kept the heat in very well. It stayed warm for about 2 hours. The screen kept all of the loose tea filtered, and noting got through. As long as you press it down slowly, you should have any problem with it. I suggest using course ground coffee.
Overall, I really liked the French Press. It works great and makes a few cups at a time. It’s also very nice looking and will go with décor. It would defiantly make a great house warming, wedding, or birthday gift. It’s available on Amazon for $29.84 (+ shipping). You can get more info about it and Kitchen Supreme’s other products at their website.
