Avoiding hazards and damage with a french press



Handle your french coffee press gently and with proper care and caution, in order to avoid damage to the pot and hazards to yourself or others.

Here's a list of "don'ts" to avoid when using the french press.


Things to Avoid When Using a French Press


  • Don't fill it up to the top, leave some space
  • Don't place the coffee press on a wet or non-stable surface
  • Don't use fine grind, it can clog the filter; use a coarse grind
  • Don't push down the plunger with force
  • Don't stir with a metal spoon or use any abrasive material - it can cause the pot to crack
  • Don't place the frenchpress on the stove top
  • Don't use a french press pot with cracks or scracthes
  • Don't place it within reach of children
  • Don't touch the pot after pouring in the boiled water - it's HOT!
