A son-in-law has a French Press on his Christmas wish list. Would love your thoughts on brands, etc.

I've used an inexpensive Bodum for a long time. I'd recommend that brand for someone who may be trying out a French press for the first time, when there's no need to make an expensive investment. He might also need a coffee grinder to go with? I like Krups' inexpensive, basic one which works for grinding spices as well.
We like this one very much: Bodum 1308-16 Columbia 8-Cup Stainless-Steel Thermal Press Pothttp://amzn.com/B00005YY9X...It comes in 2 or 3 sizes. We have the 8 cup and the 12 cup. No issue with breakage of the carafe as we have had with glass pots.

I have the Freiling 36 oz stainless and love it. It's double walled so your coffee (or tea) stays hot longer, it's well made also. I used to have glass and broke it, this is unbreakable which for me is a good thing.
Yes. Always Bodum. The best by far. And the insulated carafe is always a nice choice, if you are going for the bigger size. It really does make a nice warm cup of coffee.

I am too in the Bodum camp... Served me for many years, and they also sell replacement glass, if anything happens to it.

Yep, I'm happy with my Bodum too.
Thanks everyone! I went with a Bodum stainless on sale at Macy's plus an extra 25% off with a promo code. PLUS I went through ebates and will get another 6% off in a rebate check.
