CNET: Best French presses for 2021


Published in Science & Technology News

CNET TAKE: The Veken French press is very well equipped considering its reasonable price. It comes with various tools you won't see bundled with other French presses: a fancy wooden mixing spoon, a cleaning wand and a battery-powered milk frother for whipping up cafe-style drinks like lattes and cappuccinos.

We also like the elegant copper finish, which really sets it apart visually. Most importantly, the Veken brews outstandingly delicious cups of coffee.


The most durable

Frieling French Press


CNET TAKE: This striking model doesn't come cheap. What you get for its steep price is heavy stainless-steel construction that's designed to last. Out of all the French presses we used, this one felt the most durable by far. The stainless-steel carafe also has an insulated double wall that keep coffee hot for hours.

Coffee we brewed in the Frieling came out well extracted yet strong. So if money is no barrier, this is the French press for you.
