KONA French Press

Best Overall French Press Coffee Maker

Why people love it
  • Easy to clean
  • Works great
  • Makes delicious coffee

The protective shell on this French press coffee maker keeps it safe from cracking. It’s also dishwasher-safe and has a stainless steel filter screen infuser.

The glass beaker can’t be removed from the holder and it only comes with one set of screens.


There are reasons why this is the best French press on our list. It’s a standard size – at 34 ounces and the stainless steel filter screen does the job perfectly. You won’t get any grounds in your cup as long as you care for your screen properly. That said, you’re going to be very happy that the entire unit can be cleaned in the dishwasher.

The carafe is glass, but it has a resilient plastic shell around it that reduces the pressure all around and prevents chips and cracks. You can get replacement filter screens if you need. But, the main reason we love it is that it works efficiently, saves time on clean-up, and you can get it all at a remarkable price. We’re not the only ones; this is at or near the top of several lists on Amazon. Good, right?

Volume? This has a 34-ounce capacity and it’s a one-size-fits-all French press. There aren’t any other sizes available in the same range with the same features.

Dishwasher-safe? Yes, yes, yes! We love that this entire unit can go in the dishwasher.

Can you get replacement parts? You can get replacement screens if you need them, but you probably won’t need to replace the unit for a long time. Made from glass and plastic, this baby is durable.

Will it break the bank? With a MSRP under $40, this is hardly the most expensive French press on the market. Of course, it’s not the cheapest either. In fact, we believe this is one of the best value-for-money French presses you can get, especially given its resilience.
