Great for our RV travel.

We’re big fans of the previous French Press design, and were happy to be able to purchase one through the grab bag. If there was a problem with this one, we couldn’t find it – it arrived in perfect condition – not one scratch, ding or even a logo!

I LOVE my french press! No worries about breaking glass, coffee remains hot for hours (and I like it hot!), and is easy to use and clean. My first experience with Planetary Design was at a coffee shop. I ended up buying one for myself and my kids who also are enjoying it. I’m just about to buy a larger model for when we have friends over. Very pleased at these purchases!
Purchased the medium size and I am very pleased with it. I purchased via the grab bag and got a very nice bright blue!!
Love it! It keeps our coffee hot for a long time, longer than other thermal french presses we tried. Very well made and no coffee grinds have made it pass the screens and into our cups.
We have used our original Planetary pot for over 10 years on our sailboat which we liveaboard half the year. We wanted a larger pot for our house. The Bru stop design definitely reduces the fine grind in the cup. Since I wasn’t sure the grab bag would have the Bru stop, I ordered a spare which fits on my original pot too. I did receive a pot with the bru stop feature. There is a design for a coffee business on our pot but we don’t mind it….its silver on a black matte pot. Love the grab bag price!
Excellent product. Noting that the pour spout does not close, is always open. The outer lid seal will wear out after about 4 years. Easy to disassemble and clean. Stays hot enough for about 45 minutes. I use it on a racing sailboat, 32 to 96 hour races and in the Pacific Cup to Hawaii. Slightly wide base is more stable at sea.

Hi Jim, thanks for your feedback. Wondering if this is the older model prior to adding the double insulation — when you first make coffee is it hot to the touch? We can get you a replacement for the outer lid seal if you’d like. FYI our redesigned BaseCamp presses have lids that snap shut – might be good for sailing!
Makes an excellent “cup a joe”. I chose the 48oz size basically for car camping, I had been using a 12 cup percolator on a camp stove, but the coffee seemed a little thin, and it took forever to percolate. This press has definitely fixed those issues, we’re talking a full bodied cup of coffee in 5 minutes of steeping. Cleans up easily, has good heat retention, I may add a 32oz for convenience in the kitchen at home. It’s a winner. Nuthin’ better than a really good cup of coffee in the great outdoors.

Just ordered a 20oz press. The handle on my 15(?) year old previous one just broke. I have two others, all floor models purchased at Coffee Fest when I used to work in the industry. They are my absolute favorite and I love the 20oz for daily personal use!

We have been using your 32 ounce French press pot for five years, since my husband bought it for me for Christmas. I actually think it might be the reason he is now a coffee connoisseur! We just bought a second one, larger, so he can make his gourmet coffee every morning for some friends who are coming to visit for a week.

This is an excellent item. mine came without any damage and i even got a color i like. It keeps the coffee hot till i finish drinking it, sometimes over an hour. Thanks again for another good product. I enjoy drinking a fresh cup of coffee using the press design and my home roasted coffee.
I think this is the best Thermal french press on the market. I’m a little sad that it only appears to be available as a grab bag item. I assume that means they are no longer making it.
Grab one while you can. It’s a great deal and a fantastic press. Every positive thing the other reviewers have said is accurate.

Holy buckets am I happy with my purchase! I’ve used a glass french press before, but the coffee always gets cold before I can finish it. Today is my first day using my new insulated press and I’m an immediate convert. I’ll be buying another one of these for my summer place. It kept my coffee hot all morning long so I could enjoy it at my leisure. Totally worth it!

This is my first order from this site, so naturally I ordered a grab bag item (mostly because the concept intrigued me!) I was delightfully surprised when I received a beautiful red press with zero blemishes or problems! It even has a silhouette image of a monk drinking coffee on the side, which I think is amazing!! I’ve already used it to make coffee a handful of times and it is perfect! No drips. No escaped grounds. No muss. No fuss. Just a perfect cup of brew!! Will definitely be ordering again!!

I have both the medium size and large size of this French press. I am AMAZED at how long the coffee stays hot! I used to use a regular glass French press and then a thermos type bottle to put it in to keep it hot (and it did not do a very good job). Now I only have to use and wash one item each morning for coffee. I HIGHLY recommend this awesome French press. And Planetary Design’s customer service is perfect!

We have used the BruTrek french press for over 20 years- we love being able to order replacement parts. We use them every day to keep coffee and tea warm after it’s brewed….durable and practical!! highly recommend!

I love this French press! Am so glad that I read reviews of different options for use on. Sailboat. This was recommended by a long-haul sailor and I see why. It makes a LOT of coffee (and actually I think I’ll buy a smaller one for the boat to use this at home…). But best of all, no grit, and the ingenious stopper keeps the coffee from over brewing. Great for camping and outdoors activities where good coffee is expected! Also, I ordered from the grab bag and was delighted. I received a flawless stainless steel coffee pot… just what I wanted! Can’t wait to try other planetary design products. (No, really. I’m not a paid shill. I promise.)
We absolutely love the BruTrek french presses- we have one for tea and one for coffee; you can drink your wintertime beverage of choice hot to the last drop! Great design that keeps improving through the years…the thermal feature has improved over the 20 years we have been using this French press!!
We have enjoyed coffee out of the Bru- Trek French press when we were lucky enough to be with the in laws! We finally bit the bullet and bought one for ourselves…. good design and love the brew stop addition! A good start to a day is good coffee from the top to the bottom of the pot!
We’ve had a 32 oz press now for 6 years. It’s awesome. Made well and made so it can be repaired. Well done! Now we’re going to enjoy the 48oz press since we entertain often. Thanks Planetary Design!
I used a 20 oz Planetary Design press while staying at a friend’s house last summer. The coffee was so fabulous! I wasn’t able to replicate that experience at home, and generally find French Press coffee “meh.” I stayed there again a few weeks ago and took a picture of the bottom of her press so I could purchase one. We discussed the history of her BruTrek press, how she acquired the first one as a promotional item at The Roasterie in Kansas City MO, and how her husband had accidentally sat it too close to a heat source, which melted some imported parts, causing her to seek an immediate replacement. I didn’t find one at The Roasterie on my way home from my stay, but I did place an online order with Planetary Design (and ordered a couple of extras for gifts) after returning home. I now have a 20 oz BruTrek to call my own and am deliriously happy drinking coffee prepared with this incredible little item as I type. This press is amazingly simple to use, and cleanup is equally simple. I generally rinse the press assembly in the sink, then take the container outside with a container of water, dump the coffee grounds on my plants (for nutrients), then just rinse the grounds out to leave with the plants while I’m outside. The 20 oz press will make for a fabulous camping item, too! I’m really happy my foodie friend led me to this purchase and the fabulous coffee I’m now making at home!
