After a few years we learned that the ridges on the plunger were causing scratches on the inside of the AeroPress chamber. The scratches were not deep enough to affect performance but they were unsightly and the ridges provided no benefit so we eliminated them.
- previous post: I have had my areopress for three years. I took several months off from using it and began using it again on a daily basis a couple months ago. It worked great for few weeks, but recently it has become impossible to press down the plunger no matter how hard or gently I press. Do I need a new seal or a whole new plunger? – From Julia S.
