This review is from: Rainbow Cafetiere 3 Cup Red (Kitchen & Home)
I bought one of these at a big discount. I wasn't drinking much coffee at the time and already had a small cafetiere, but my kitchen has a red theme, so it'd look good and I might find an alternative use for it.
Tried it with my usual brand of coffee and it was delicious - far better than using the same coffee in my other cafetiere. Perhaps that's because the metal sleeve keeps the water hotter for longer? It makes one big mug of coffee, to serve 3 they'd have to be very small cups. I'm now drinking a lot more coffee!
I didn't give 5 stars because the leaflet says the metal part should only be wiped with a damp cloth, while the glass is dishwasher safe. But the glass is such a tight fit that it's not practical to keep removing the glass to wash it, I wasn't convinced it would come out without breaking. That said, I've been washing the whole thing with a soft sponge with no ill effects on the finish.
I'd happily have paid full price for it as a coffee maker.
