    Need new carafe/beaker for French press

    Hello,

    I'm looking for a replacement carafe/beaker for a French press (photo attached), brand unknown. The carafe measures:

    15 cm tall
    9 cm top outside diameter (slight lip)
    8.6 cm (3-3/8") body outside diameter

    This last dimension is critical, because the carafe is a friction fit in the metal base.

    On the carafe is printed:

    PYREX

    For boiling water
    Caution
    refrain from flame [nice translation]

    It looks so much like a La Cafetiere “Wave” that I emailed the company's customer service in hopes it was an older model, but I haven't heard back, and none of the replacement beakers on the La Cafetiere website is the right diameter.

    Any help in locating a replacement will be very much appreciated.

    Hello George_Newman

    Welcome to the Coffee Forums!

    I'm not surprised that you're having a problem finding the replacement carafe, especially since you don't know for sure what brand it is.

    I thought I found it, but upon closer look, I'm not sure:
    8-Cup Replacement Glass

    That is an European gift & housewares product. Here is their website....
    La Pavoni espresso machines from EG&H
    they might be able to steer you in the right direction.

    Topher and Rose,

    Thanks for the tips. I've done some further poking around, and I think the press may be from Creative Cookware -- sure looks like it.

    I've emailed them to see if they can tell me the diameter of their replacement beaker, and if that checks out, I should be in business.

    Hey George, How does that French Press fair vs something like a Bodum?

    evanclosson...it is wee bit less expensive and not as well made. I used to sell them and the filters would pop free where they fold over on the top...not sure if that made sense...I just remember that they didn't last as long as bodums. I have had one of my bodums for over 15 years.

    Evan, the big difference is that if it were a Bodum I could find a replacement beaker easily <g>.

    Topher, I talked to EG&H, and the diameter of their 6-cup beaker is 3.5 inches, so it won't fit my press. Still hoping to hear something from Creative Cookware . . .

    It sounds like you may have to give up the search and go buy yourself a spankin' new French Press.

    There you go being all logical.

    It's not just a matter of making coffee. The pot belonged to my mother-in-law, who died in October; I'd like to get it fixed up for my daughter, her granddaughter.

    George,

    I'm sorry to hear about your Mother-In-Law. It's very nice of you to try to fix her French Press for your daughter.

    It may take some more time and searching, but I have a feeling you'll eventually find what you're looking for, especially since you're not in a hurry to fix it for making coffee.
