Many people will argue that a French press coffee maker makes the best coffee because it allows for steeping. This fancy coffee product lets the grounds steep instead of the filter, which allows you to taste all the flavours your coffee has to offer.
One customer said she uses her french press every morning. “I love it! And my coffee is delicious and grind-free! So much easier than the little draining cup thing I was using with filters. SO much easier, best present I ever bought myself,” she wrote in her five-star review.
“I've been drinking instant coffee and finally decided to try a French press after hearing such great things. It is definitely worth the extra 5 minutes to make coffee in this,” another five-star review read. “The instructions are super easy, and the large size makes this super easy to clean. Great coffee every time!”

“It could be thicker. The rest is perfect; cover, infuser with a rim of rubber,” the customer added to their review.

Haven't used this cup to infuse tea yet so I can't speak for that, but I like the aesthetic of the cup. Overall I like it. It's also got a cute VAHDAM logo on the tea infuser.”

This kettle has a 4.4-star rating with over 3,000 reviews on Amazon.

I use this thing multiple times a day every day and it never fails me. I could not love it more,” a five-star review from a happy customer read.
Another happy shopper complimented to the kettle’s blue light. “I like the blue light all around the kettle. It helps to see if the water is boiling or not.”
