The only thing I can see that may be a problem is the center hole of the screen does not have a center ring to prevent fraying from use. Bodium presses have a filter with a center metal ring to prevent fraying. Other than that I can see many years of use. Of course the glass/pyrex beaker can be broken. Just avoid banging it against other solid things. I have a Bodum I have had for 6 years with no breakage. But then breakage does happen.
I have owned 4-5 coffee presses of different sizes and manufacturers and thus far this 10 oz is perfect for brewing 1-2 cups of coffee. The coffee press produces the best tasting coffee. I have to experiment with different times and measures of coffee but once I have a good cup it is great from that point.
Biggest drawback is sediment in the cup. The sediment is part of the press process but slowly pushing the plunger down puts less pressure on the screen and thus less sediment getting past the screen.
After trying just about all methods of brewing coffee I think the Coffee press the best to brew coffee. I like espresso but then that is a more expensive a and different brewing process. Drip makers are just that. Drip Drip Drip
However, during the second use (note: used 2 tbsp of coffee ground for a french press) when pushing the mechanism down to strain. The metal mesh ripped and the coffee was full of grounds. I don't even understand how it happened.. freaking horrible, on the second use? Very frustrating to get one use out of this when it was over $15 in price. Stupid, just really frustrating.
