SterlingPro French Press Review Summary

The stainless steel SterlingPro French Coffee Press makes joe that tastes just as delicious as the glass version. However, this model is much stronger and resistant to damage. It’s ideal for those who are hesitant about the delicacy of a glass French press.

Yes, you can have both — French press coffee that tastes fabulous from a coffee maker that is practically impervious to damage. The stainless steel construction makes this device resistant to most wear and tear. You won’t have any worries of stains or rust with this coffee maker, plus it will keep your java nice and hot.

The generous one-liter capacity is actually the smallest size in this brand, making it ideal for someone who likes more than a single cup of a morning. Bigger sizes are also available if you’re in a multi-person household.

One of my favorite aspects of a French press is customizing the coffee to my exact preferences. Feel free to use different coffee beans, add more grounds, or adjust the steeping time to create your own perfect blend.

SterlingPro manufactures affordable French presses and prides itself on making sure no sediment makes it into your cup of joe.


  • Not fragile like a glass French press
  • The inside stays hot with the outside stays cool
  • Sleek, modern design
  • Holds more liquid than many other models


    • Not the classic design that some people love

    Features and Benefits of the SterlingPro French Press

    There are many reasons why this SterlingPro coffee maker is a great French press. Let’s take a closer look at this model’s awesome features.

    Stainless Steel Everything

    The SterlingPro French Coffee Press is comprised entirely of stainless steel. This offers a few advantages over a classic glass and chrome version. For starters, it’s practically indestructible. There’s no worry about the glass cracking or shattering. If you’re accident-prone, you understand how important this is.

    Stainless steel also resists wear and tear and is resistant to stains, rust, and scratches. The smooth design of this coffee maker will look fabulous for as long as you own it.

    In addition, the double-walled stainless steel construction insulates and keeps your beverage hot while the exterior stays cool to the touch. You’ll enjoy piping hot java without burning your hand to pour it.

    Double-Screen Filters

    No one likes to find sediment in the bottom of their coffee mug, and no one wants to drink it either. The SterlingPro French Press uses two double-screen filters to trap all the coffee grounds and ensure that doesn’t happen. 

    A bonus to the double-screen filters is that you can use finer coffee grinds. Most French press manufacturers recommend coarsely-ground coffee only. Finely-ground coffee can escape the filter, ending up at the bottom of your coffee cup. A double-filter solves that issue. It’s your drink, so use whatever grind level you want!

    Dishwasher Safe

    Parts from some French presses may go in the dishwasher safely, but washing by hand is recommended because glass carafes are simply more fragile than stainless steel. But every part of the SterlingPro French Press can go in the dishwasher, so if you don’t feel like scrubbing, you don’t have to.

    Ounce Markings Inside

    The SterlingPro has ounce measurement markings inside. Trust me, once you’ve tried to figure out exactly how much coffee you’re making or the right coffee to water ratio, you’ll appreciate this. It’s one of those thoughtful design touches that makes a big difference. Measurement markings make life a little easier.

    Large Size

    SterlingPro’s French Coffee Press is one of the larger coffee makers we’ve reviewed. The one-liter carafe (approximately 35 ounces) is actually the brand’s smallest size. It’s also available in 1.5-liter and 1.75-liter sizes. If you drink more than a single cup of java, or you’re making coffee for more than one person, you’ll recognize the value in size.

    What Do Users Say About the SterlingPro French Coffee Press?

    If you couldn’t already tell, I’m a fan of the robust SterlingPro French Press. It’s sturdy, nice to look at, plus it makes a great mug of joe. However, to keep this review from appearing biased, I looked at what other users think about this model.

    People are in love with this coffee maker. They adore the construction quality, along with its simplicity. It doesn’t hurt that the resulting brew is delicious, too. Users also report their beverages stay nice and hot (or cold, whichever is your preference).

    Reviewers like that they don’t have to handle this device with kid gloves. In fact, many people who own this model previously owned glass French presses, which met an untimely demise.

    There are some very minor faults with this coffee maker. A few people complain that water can get trapped in the lid, which could lead to mold developing or alter the coffee’s taste. Some people have been displeased by the amount of liquid this model holds. However, that’s an individual preference.

    Alternatives To The SterlingPro French Press

    I believe the SterlingPro French Press is a great product. However, that’s just me, and it may not be the perfect choice for some. Keeping that in mind, I’ve researched some alternatives which may better suit your needs.

    The KONA French Press is made with borosilicate glass, not stainless steel. This model is resistant to thermal shock, and the carafe is encased in a protective sleeve. Kona’s French press holds 34 ounces, the largest size of this particular model, but it does come in a smaller size.

    Classic French press design with modern flair

    Borosilicate glass is heat-resistant and thicker than regular glass

    OXO Venture’s French Press has a shatterproof Tritan plastic carafe — great if you’re accident-prone but don’t want stainless steel. The non-slip rubber knob and handle give additional stability. Unlike the SterlingPro French Press, the OXO Venture French Press offers secondary filtration through its spout as you pour.

    Budget-friendly price, cheaper than the SterlingPro French Press

    The Bonjour Ami-Matin French Press is another model featuring a Tritan plastic carafe. While the device is plastic, not stainless steel, it’s made with BPA-free materials. A patented lid design filters sediment before it makes it into your cup.

    Portable, great size for travel


    SterlingPro’s French Press is everything it proclaims to be. An affordable price tag and a built to last design make this coffee maker popular. I’d say that it proves it’s possible to brew delicious French press coffee without worrying about the device’s delicacy, something that puts a lot of buyers off traditional presses.

    This French press is stainless steel, through and through, with a double-walled design to keep your beverage hot while making sure you don’t burn your fingers. It’s sturdy enough to stow in a backpack to take camping.

    The double-screen filter system guarantees no sediment finds its way into your mug of hot goodness. Thanks to these filters, you can also use a finer grind of coffee beans for brewing, if that’s your preference. Most other models require coarsely ground coffee.

    When you’re finished with this French press, just put all pieces in the dishwasher for easy cleanup. It’s only fair that the cleaning process is as simple as the brewing process, after all.
