Ardent Infusion Press Review – Straining Accessory for the FX 

By Cheri Sicard

The Ardent Infusion Press is a nifty little accessory for their FX Decarboxylator and Infuser (my personal favorite cannabis cooking gadget).

The Infusion Press makes it super quick, easy, and neat to drain and strain your cannabis infusions like marijuana butter, cannaoil, etc.

How the Ardent Infusion Press Works

The Infusion Press works much in the same way a French press coffee maker does.  When you push the plunger down, it separates the plant material (or coffee in the case of a French Press) from the liquid. 

So, after you have used the FX to perfectly decarboxylate your cannabis, then make an infusion with it, the Ardent Infusion Press lets you drain and strain it within seconds.  

Watch the Infusion Press video demo at the top of this page to see just how easy it is.  No colanders, no cheesecloth, no mess!

What's the Downside of the Ardent Infusion Press?

If I had any complaints at all about this accessory, it’s the fact that at $55.00, it is a bit pricey.  But if you make a lot of infusions and/or money is no object, you cannot beat the convenience it offers.

If you need a lower priced alternative, you could alternately use a French Press coffee maker.  Granted, it won’t be perfectly sized to fit the FX, so you will have a little more cleanup, but it’s not bad.  Simply pour the entire contents of your infusion, plant matter and liquid butter, oil (or whatever) into the French Press, plunge, and pour!

    • Good question. I wish I had thought of that when I shot the video. No. It does not work with the sleeve. Personally, I usually infuse in the FX without the optional silicone sleeve. Unlike the Nova where you NEED the sleeve for more volume and easy cleanup, the FX canister is washable, so I don’t see a need for the sleeve. I am going to do a video on the sleeve coming up and will be sure to include this question. Thanks!

  • My Ardent Infusion Press isn’t working at all. There is no resistance when pushing the plunger down. It drops down in the container. There is no seal.
