Bottom Line: If you own a Rancilio Silvia, definitely get the 4 or 8 cup model of this device. Even if you already own a press pot!
Positive Product Points

Pyrex branded glass, fairly rare size (4 cup model, bigger than the smaller bodums), rubber base, stainless steel is cool.

Negative Product Points

Wire mesh filter is not fitted well. Can't remove glass from base.

Detailed Commentary

Bought from Ikea in Canada for $19.50. These are apparently limited items, available in 4 and 8 cup models.

Even though I already own 4 press pots, I bought this one for two reasons - 1, the stainless steel used in it matches my Rancilio Silvia espresso machine perfectly (it's the same brushed satin finish stainless steel), and the 4 cup size is perfect for brewing two mugs of coffee for me and my wife or guest.

I do believe this device keeps coffee warmer for longer when compared to the typical bodum. I believe the combination of the thick Pyrex glass and the added stainless steel, which encompasses roughly 1/6th of the entire device, does the job. But like any press pot, they cool down relatively fast.

Brewing is like all other press pots - simple, does the job, produces full flavored "crunchy coffee", ie coffee with a bit of sludge. I feel the fit of the filter part of the plunger is a bit low quality, but it still doesn't let whole grinds pass through to the cup, so Bob's Yer Uncle.
