Topic: French Press Advice (13 msgs / 291 lines)
1) From: Bill S.
A question for the Frenchies on the list.. Does anyone have a clever way of
preventing the top and plunger from rolling around on the counter top (and
occasionally rolling to the floor), while the french press is apart and
being filled?
I'm surprised that the manufacturers haven't addressed this by now..
Thanks in advance,
Bill Shelton

3) From: James Hutchings
Well, this isn't all that clever, but I just have it straddle the narrow portion of countertop at the front of the sink -- like an H in profile -- so that the business end hangs over the sink.
Curious to hear other's (probably deeper) inspirations ...

How 'bout setting it down vertically instead of horizontally.

You could always set the press mesh side down...

I invert the plunger/top assemby and place it in the flatware cup of  
my dish drainer temporarily.

Hi, Bill.
I dangle mine over the edge of the sink with the screen at the bottom. 
Sometimes I just lay it down.

I guess I never thought much about this.  Mine doesn't seem to roll around 
much.  I can see how it would be a pain, especially if your counter isn't 
level.
You could:
Put the heavy end in a saucer.
Get your hammer and put a dent in the cap so it won't roll (not very 
elegant)
Put it on the floor....  (just kidding, but at least it wouldn't fall any 
farther)

Couldn't you rest it on the empty cup?

12) From: Sean Cary
I wash mine - immediately after I make the coffee and decant it to two cups
and the carafe...
Then I add water and pour the grinds in the garden or water a few
plants...scrub out the body and put it away.  All that before I have my
coffee...

"...rest it on the empty cup"
Maybe his counter top is not level, or there is a random local gravitational
singularity.
Or, his coffee shack is on a brand new sailboat with no mast headed for
Avalon Bay, Catalina, in six foot seas. The galley sink would be best.
