I want to replace my current cheap hand-me-down French press. I originally was planning on buying a Bodum (4 cup/17 oz.), given that it seems to be THE staple press every gets, but then I saw the Frieling. Is it worth the extra bucks? If it's worth it, I'll definitely drop the extra cash, but given that it's 50% more, I want to know WHY it's so much better. I've heard it retains heat better, but the coffee won't be sitting in it given that it'll be one mugful just for me.
