Up Your Coffee Game with the Crofton Stainless Steel French Press From Aldi

This post is an open thread and contains affiliate links

Most people who enjoy a daily cup, or two, of home-brewed coffee use a traditional coffee maker. But if you want to get fancy about it, you can try making coffee with a French press. A French press consists of a cylinder-shaped pot with a plunger and mesh filter, and you press down on the coffee, with the result being a filtered brew. It makes for an especially rich coffee.

Aldi has sold several types of French presses throughout the years. I’ve seen a glass French press with bamboo lid as well as a traditional French press.

The latest French press model to show up in the middle aisle is a stainless steel version.

What We Know:

Crofton Stainless Steel French Press

The Crofton Stainless Steel French Press (Product Code: 710970) is an Aldi Find, so it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store receives one shipment, and after that sells out, it’s gone unless Aldi decides to bring it back at a later time. Aldi does not offer online ordering if this is sold out at your local store.

This is scheduled to arrive in Aldi stores on January 31st, 2024.

The Crofton Stainless Steel French Press cost $14.99 at the time of publication. That’s less than most other stainless steel French presses on Amazon.

Here’s more information on the Aldi French press:

  • Features a 34-ounce capacity
  • Makes up to 8 cups
  • Offers durable construction with 304 stainless steel interior
  • Features 3-layered stainless steel filter structure
  • Filter screen is easy to disassemble and clean
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Sleek and classic design
  • Available in silver or black

This is sold under the Crofton brand. That’s not a company. Rather, it’s the private label Aldi uses for various kitchen products.

What We Don’t Know:

  1. I was lucky enough to get the coffee press Aldi in January. I chose the Stainless Steel one. I had a plastic one for six years from Starbucks and was worried about plastics leeching into my body more recently. Its mid February and Im so in love with this coffee press! Nice robust true flavor, easy to use, easy to take care of and well made. Every single piece comes apart and can be washed. No hidden places for bacteria growth (Im somewhat of a clean freak lol!) And the top part is completely sealed steel so there are no chances of leaking into unreachable areas. Its even sealed where the slot is that the stem goes into. This thing is a total winner in my book! I never thought it would be possible to find one sooo perfect in every way. Its incredibly well made. Worth way more than what Aldi sells them for. If you can find one, GET IT!! Ohh, and I preferred the steel one because incase the black color was to peel off. I went to Aldi’s last week and noticed they still had some left! So check your nearest Aldi’s!

  2. I bought one because I’m currently in an extended stay hotel. Problem is I’ve never used one before so I don’t have a clue what to do to make coffee.

  3. I’m just wondering if it would be safe to use on a fire during camping. I can’t find any information about whether or not it is insulated although it does seem to have a double wall, I don’t know if that’s sealed or if it’ll be safe to use on a fire.

  4. I am enjoying my new French Press, especially that it is stainless steel and will not break easily.
    My only comment is that it should not be advertised as making up to 8 cups, as it holds 33,82 oz. A cup is not 4 ounces, unless you are using an espresso cup.
