Many coffee-lovers swear by the French press method for brewing the most aromatic, flavorful coffee. Chef'sChoice takes it to the next level with this German-engineered 8-cup cordless electric version. A single heat-resistant glass carafe is used for boiling, brewing, and serving. The solid-state heating element, with no exposed coils, boils water faster than stove or microwave, and the single-pot system means brewing occurs at optimum temperature for maximum flavor - there's no cool-down from transferring boiling water to a cold carafe. When coffee is ready, just lift the carafe from the power source for cord-free serving. Safety features include a Lid Lock system for easy pouring, a cool-grip handle with convenient on-off switch, automatic power shutoff when water reaches a full boil, and double boil-dry safety mechanism. Has easy-clean stainless steel filters and cord storage in the base. Can also be used for brewing tea. Comes with an extra lid for use as a hot pot. 1,500 watts. 7 1/2" W (including handle) x 5 3/4" Dia. x 11 3/8" H. Imported.
