Is My French Press Microwave Safe?
You might be wondering if your french press is microwave safe? Sometimes we take the time to carefully brew a beautiful cup of coffee, only to accidentally leave it on the counter to get cold.
If this happens, microwaving is an option. You’ll lose a lot of the bold, robust flavors and oils that you normally get when you brew a fresh cup in the french press, but most of the high quality should still remain in tact.
What you need to know if you’re going to microwave your french press coffee is that you have to pour the coffee into a microwave-safe cup or coffee server.
If you’re going to keep the coffee in the french press, keep the glass carafe separate. The plastic base at the french press can NOT be microwaved, so make sure you take this off.
The lid and plunger are normally metal, so you can NOT microwave this. It is important to note that the glass will get very, very hot, so we recommend using a different cup.
So, technically your entire french press is not microwave safe. It’s okay to reheat the brewed french press coffee in the mug or coffee server, but we recommend just sticking to a freshly brewed cup for the best flavor.
