The Good: 

  • Sleek & beautiful
  • No breakable glass parts
  • Can keep coffee warm for longer
  • Can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher

The Bad:

  • Advertised capacity seems to be an over-estimate

Bottom Line:

  • One of the more expensive french presses on the market but has the ability to do more (i.e. keep your coffee hotter for longer), it looks fantastic and is far less fragile than glass presses.


Frieling Polished Stainless French Press

The Frieling Polished Stainless French Press is a double-walled stainless steel french press that can be used for both coffee and tea. The insulated double wall allows for your drinks to be kept hot for long after you brew them and if you decide to use it just as a regular jug it can be utilised to keep cold drinks cold too.

Although you can keep your coffee hot for longer in this press, it is not a thermos replacement and you should still seek to use all the coffee fairly quickly to remove it from the coffee grinds that will be sitting in the bottom.

It has an elegant mirror finish exterior which looks great on any kitchen worktop and has no breakable glass parts, meaning that it can give you many many years of great coffee.

The handle is stable and comfortable to use and the plunger mechanism can be used for coarse ground coffee and even loose tea.

The Frieling is a very long lasting coffee plunger and many users have reported using it happily for a number of years.


Who should buy this french press?

If you are someone who has been through one or two glass french presses in your time because you keep breaking them, or you find that one day they have a crack develop, then this stainless steel french press is definitely worth investing in. It will last you many many years and the coffee will be just as good as it was the day you bought it.

You should also purchase the Frieling if you don’t have much time to wash up, or if you just don’t like doing it, because the stainless steel construction of this press means that it can be dismantled and put in the dishwasher.

Although the press might seem a little expensive up front, it will save you money in the long run as you will not have to replace it as often as a glass alternative.

Over 330 customers have rated this press at 5 stars on Amazon, and it has an average rating of 4.5 stars. Read all of those customer reviews here.


In conclusion, the Frieling is an excellent addition to your kitchen even with its slightly higher price compared to other french presses on the market.

You should also check out the Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder which is a great grinder to complement this french press.
