AeroPress Coffee Maker
The AeroPress is made of three different plastics. The clear chamber
and plunger are made of copolyester. The hard black filter cap,
filter holder, funnel, and stirrer are made of polypropylene. The
rubber like seal on the end of the plunger is made of a thermoplastic
elastomer. All of these materials are FDA approved for use in
contact with food. None of these materials contain
bisphenol-A (BPA) or any phthalates, chemicals that have been in the
news lately because of possible health effects.
Aerobie has been shipping AeroPress coffee makers made of the materials
described above since August 1st, 2009. Prior to that date, the
clear chamber and plunger were made of a very special high humidity and
temperature resistant polycarbonate. Polycarbonate does not
contain phthalates but it does contain BPA. Even though the FDA
and other governmental agencies around the world approve polycarbonate
for use in contact with food, Aerobie had an independent lab test coffee
brewed in a well used AeroPress to determine how much, if any, BPA
leaches into coffee brewed in a polycarbonate AeroPress.
Absolutely none was detected. Given that result, one could ask
why they switched to using copolyester. The answer is simple.
The use of copolyester removes any perceived risk from BPA and it is
Aerobiefrequently gets asked if they plan to make a glass or stainless steel
AeroPress coffee maker. Interestingly, they also receive frequent
emails from consumers thanking them for not making the AeroPress of
glass. The guess is those people are tired of breaking glass coffee
carafes or glass coffee presses. The facts are that glass
is fragile, heavy, and expensive to manufacture with the tolerances
required for the AeroPress. People then ask how about stainless
steel. Unfortunately stainless steel is heavy, expensive, and
opaque and anyone that has used an AeroPress knows that transparency is
helpful when using an AeroPress coffee maker. therefore
no plans have been made to make a glass or stainless steel AeroPress coffee maker.
Even though there is no reason for concern, people who are nevertheless
concerned about using an AeroPress made of polycarbonate can take
advantage of Aerobie's spare parts policy. Just call the Aerobie
