Large Capacity Thermos Nissan insulated coffee press. Remove the plunger, add coffee & hot water, let steep a minute or two, insert the plunger, plunge and pour! The fine stainless mesh screen on the plunger seperates the liquids from the coffee grounds - or tea leaves leaving you with a fantastic cup of brew. Stainless steel inner liner and outer body for durability. Hot 3 hours, Cold 6 hours
Although the filter screens on the Nissan Press seldomly needs replacing, we have found that the nylon framed, stainless replacement screens for our Bodum Columbia 8 cup press fits these units perfectly. As a matter of fact, we think they are actually nicer than the original screen that comes with the Nissan press! The Bodum filter fits a little loose for the 1st inch or so on this press, as the inner diamteter of the press has a slight taper for approximately the 1st inch. UPDATE: May 16 2009 - unfortunately, the Bodum 8 cup screens have been discontinued from the manufacturer, and are no longer available! Either way, the Nissan Press is a nice unit, and will provide a long life of excellent coffee production.
As with all insulated beverage containers, we highly recommend pre-heating these units by filling them with hot water - or cold water, and leaving them sit for a minute or so before storing your beverage. This will greatly increase the amount of time your beverage will hold its temperature. Thermos TherMax™ vacuum insulation virtually eliminates temperature change by creating an airless vacuum space between two unbreakable stainless steel walls. The result is an insulation layer that performs better than almost all other insulation methods, excluding glass lined containers, which are for the most part, not suited for more rugged environments. Thermos TherMax™, Superior insulated containers that keep whats hot, hot, and whats cold, cold!
All of the double wall stainless steel lined thermos vacuumware you will find at BaldMountainCoffee.com, are top of the line units. We do not carry products that are insulated with foam. Although Thermos does manufacture other, less expensive lines of products that do not include their TherMax™ technology, we carry only only Nissan Thermos products that DO include TherMax™ technology, as we feel they are far superior to what else is offered.
