According to the manufacturer’s own online store, the 8 cup French Press actually has an MSRP of $50, which makes this an even better value.
The information I was seeking, though, is not to be found. “8 cups” is a subjective measure, especially when one is talking about coffee. Do we know how many ounces this pot will hold?
“8 cups” shouldn’t be subjective, but you’re absolutely right… it was. I ordered the 3 cup version and found it only holds 12.7 oz.
It’s a tad upsetting, because a cup is an actual measure of volume (1 cup = 8 oz). I wish it would have been advertised differently. 12.7 oz is just a little over 1.5 cups, not the 3 cups I was expecting.
