These three french presses are all of the larger variety (making 2-3 mugs) as opposed to the single-mug types that are popular amongst office workers. The Bodum is the best selling from what we have seen but the Thermos and the Frieling are also very well liked perhaps for their alternative sleek design with the stainless/chrome appearance.

Lets take a quick look at some of the features of each:
