      STONEWARE

      Quality Performance

      Le Creuset stoneware is perfectly suited to baking pies, quiches, casseroles and more. It heats evenly, to prevent hot spots and cook food in a uniform fashion. The result is a golden brown crust with fully cooked ingredients throughout.


      Superior Finish

      The smooth, impermeable glaze resists staining and easily releases foods, making cleanup a breeze.


      Versatile

      Stoneware is safe for the oven, broiler and microwave. And because it resists stains and odors, it’s ideal for storing foods in the refrigerator or freezer.

      This is the cutest thing ever and quite functional for coffee service for one. I purchased this as soon as it came out. Already have the larger French Press and for a long time I wished that LC offered a smaller version too. It's as if Le Creuset read my mind. It works great – same as the larger size (comes completely apart for cleaning, keeps coffee hotter than glass models, matches other LC pieces, is sturdy) I'm using the Cherry press, with the matching cappuccino cups w/ saucer and the teaspoon on the Tray. See pic. The presentation is a beautiful way to start any day. Consider adding a "new" product section to your website so that frequent visitor customers can quickly find new items too big. Also, all of your creamer sugar sets are too big. Something the size of the syrup pitcher would work well with the smaller press. Only con is that it's a little pricey for the size (thus only 4 stars), but if you love Le Creuset and sometimes have coffee hour by yourself, you've gotta get one.

      Can not replace filter screen without going through a warranty claim. Filter cost less then the postage need to return the item. Once the item is out of warranty guess they want you to replace it with a complete new press. Doesn't make sense based on how durable the press is made.

        Comments about Le Creuset French Press:

        Love that the filter easily disassembles for cleaning. I do this every single day and have not encountered problems and have been able to clean it well - better than glass competitive models. It also remains hot for a while and I sometimes keep it warmer via a candle set up (but not close to the pot). I do wish that there was a maximum fill line as I sometimes use too much water and get grinds in my coffee. But since that's user error I did not deduct any stars. It's beautiful and easy to use

          Comments about Le Creuset French Press:

          I've had another french press [glass] that didn't hold the heat. If I didn't drink all the coffee immediately, the second cup was barely warm. This can be pre-heated, but I find it's hot enough for me without that extra step. I'd given up on french press coffee and had been using a standard coffee pot that was mostly plastic. The water reservoir was difficult to clean and I was concerned about all the plastic. I was reconsidering french press when I spotted this gem. It's easy to use, [I have an electric water kettle] and the coffee stays hot longer. It also frees up counter space, I store it in a cabinet. I find it easier to clean than the glass one, the press loosens easily and the grounds are easily dislodged. I've even used it for brewing loose tea. The only down-side I can think of is if you were making coffee for a crowd.

            Comments about Le Creuset French Press:

            In spite of other comments to the contrary, you can disassemble the screen assembly although it isn't as easy I would prefer. Basically the rod is treaded at the top to a ball and the bottom to the screen assembly. If you can grip the rod or the top ball (hopefully without it unthreading as well) you can unthread the filter assembly from the rod for better cleaning. Actually, I believe this press is more durable those which are glass. Cleaning the press is very easy once you are able to disassemble the screen.

              I love the fact that it does not take up counter space , prefect for people who don't like coffee but have friends that do, it's very impressive and simple to use . Love the cheery colors. Bought this for my husband for Christmas. We will be using it on our RV when traveling cross country!
              I had glass French press in the past that cracked, boy what a mess!

                I have had my press for a week now and I have never had better coffee. I saw this and was so excited, I had to have it. It was the best impulsive purchase ever! It looks beautiful on my counter. It keeps the coffee warmer longer, when pressing the plunger, it's very smooth; no splattering. I can't say anything bad about it. it is made very well and very beautiful. I will never buy another press again, with this, I am set for life.

                    For the weight of this product the handle feels really small and like it might break , I have small hands so I don't thing that's the issue. I think it needs a larger thicker handle my coffee cups handle is bigger than this , otherwise love it .

                      Be certain to fill with water an inch or so BELOW the spout order to prevent coffee grounds from floating over the filter.

                        I received this as a Christmas gift from a friend! I have been wanting a French press for a long time but had a hard time finding one that would retain the heat so that I could enjoy two or three cups of coffee in the morning. This one may retain a little longer than glass but still not long. I wish it could be warmed on low on a burner. I received it in truffle to go with my kitchen but would have loved it in the purple!!

                        Some say coffee prepared in a French press is the way every cup should be savored. Coarsely ground coffee beans are steeped in boiling water, and then filtered away by plunging the mesh sieve through the press. Direct contact between the beans and the water means a stronger flavor. Loose tea leaves can also be steeped in a French press.
