Can I Put My French Press in the Dishwasher?
The french press is a favored coffee maker by many, but it can be one of the messiest to clean. Although it is recommended that you only lightly clean your press after every use, it’s helpful to wash it in the dishwasher every now and then.
Washing your fresh press in the dishwasher will help you remove the grimy buildup that is caused by the coffee oils over time. It is hard to get rid of these oils by just rinsing your press, so the force of the dishwasher is helpful in removing the buildup and getting your french press back to a sparkly clean state.
Usually all of the components of a french press are dishwasher safe, but make sure to take the pieces apart before you put them in.
