KitchenAid's Precision Press coffee maker sports a built-in scale for accuracy$150 is a lot of money to pay for a French Press, but with an integrated digital scale and timer KitchenAid feels its new Precision Press coffee maker is worth the extra expense.
Let's check out the Kitchen Aid precision prep coffee maker. This machine may look like your standard French press coffee machine, but it actually has a little secret. It has A scale built right in. And with that scale you can measure and weigh exactly how much coffee grounds you're going to add and brew with, as well as the water volume that you're putting into the kettle. Despite all its high-tech gadgetry, its scale and LCD screen, This machine is essentially a basic french press. It has a lid with a plunger that plunges the filter into the grounds, and that will separate the coffee liquid from the grounds and create that delicious french press coffee that people love so much. It's not as convenient as you might expect. If you're not fast enough, the scale, as well as the timer, will time out, zero out your weighed values Then you're gonna have to start from scratch, all over again. Also, just like any french press, you're gonna have to grind your own coffee, and you're gonna have to boil your own water, or at least have a kettle that has the exact temperature that you want to brew it. It doesn't actually heat your water for you. Priced at 150 dollars, this is expensive. Especially when you can buy a stainless steel french press for anywhere between 80 to 100 bucks. And even lower if you want to lower the volume Volume of coffee you want to make. This device may sound convenient, but I have to tell you, you're probably better off just buying a regular kitchen scale and an ordinary French press. And you're gonna have the same results. [MUSIC]
