Pros: This plunger was fairly light. The capacity of the beaker was large – it could take up to six cups. The fine wire mesh strainer was very efficient and retained most of the granules well.
Cons: The beaker was not a secure fit and felt loose against its casing, so it tipped forward while pouring and could slip out and break. The wire mesh couldn’t be screwed apart making it tricky to clean. The stainless steel knob heated up while in use, making it difficult to lift. We found that the metal scrapes against the sides when the shaft is lifted or pressed down. The handle didn’t feel very sturdy and the lid had no filter, as in some of the others.
