Here are the Best 8-Cup French Press Coffee Makers
Bodum Chambord 8 cup French Press Coffee Maker, 34 ozThe Bodum Chambord is a perennial favorite with French press advocates due to it’s quality construction and performance in both brewing and filtering coffee.
The value is here for sure and it’s our favorite 8-cup french press because it’s price justifies it’s place in this list.
If you are looking for a basic medium sized french press that will serve two to three people at once then this will be a great choice that won’t cost you too much.
THE ESPRO PRESS – 10 Cup / 32 oz Stainless Steel French PressUnlike the Bodum featured above this french press is actually at the very tippy top of our favorites list – we really think it’s the best french press you can buy due to it’s build quality, thermal insulation, and extremely fine filtration plunger.
To sum it up if you want french press coffee with no sediment in it brewed to absolute perfection every time you will get better results from this coffee press than any other model.
You will have to pay up for that however so don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Frieling Brushed Stainless Steel French Press, 36-OunceThe Frieling is a close second in our book to the Espro Press line of french presses. It is similar in every way except the press plunger isn’t quite so robust even though it uses a double micro-fine filter screen to all but eliminate the mud that can form on the bottom of your cup.
This press is also well insulated so it will give you excellent temperature control while you brew and the price is a bit lower than the Espro Press despite it’s still top-shelf pricing.
Even still it’s more affordable and just about as good of a model as you can buy anywhere. It’s a best seller among our customers. Check it out for yourself!

- Our 34oz French press coffee makers range in price from $10.00 to $100.00.
- 34oz French press options come with a handle and a detachable, plunging top, which make for easy holding and pouring. This feature also allows for fast and efficient washing.
- French press coffee makers maintain the handle at a regulated temperature so you won’t burn yourself when pouring.
- All options come with a built-in, 3-piece filtering system, which means – no paper filter.
- For the material, you can select from glass, stainless or brushed steel, or BPA-free plastic.
Glass: glass provides transparency so you can see how much coffee you have, and it makes cleaning up easier. Glass is more likely to shatter than stainless steel or plastic, but they are heat resistant so you can pour extremely hot water in the carafe for coffee brewing.
Stainless or brushed steel: stainless steel or brushed steel provide better insulation (keeping beverages hot or cold longer) than other materials, and does not stain as easily. However, many of these coffee makers require hand washing, so please check the product description if you prefer it to be dishwasher safe.
Plastic: plastic insulated French press coffee makers are lightweight, designed to be shatter-resistant, and usually can go in a dishwasher; however, they may stain and scratch easier as opposed to stainless steel ones. If you’re worried about the type of plastic, make sure the coffee maker you’re buying is “BPA-free plastic.”
