Product Description

When Bodum took over a small clarinet factory in Normandy in 1982, it was not because of the fine orchestra clarinets they were producing but because of a relatively unknown coffee maker called the Chambord which they produced as well. The reason the French press coffee maker has become one of the most popular coffeemakers in the world is pure and simple, taste. The materials (glass and stainless steel) are completely taste-free so nothing comes between your ground coffee beans. This is exactly the reason why coffee tasters use this method to determine the quality of coffee beans. No paper filter not only means no waste, but that the coffee bean's essential oils go directly to your cup, delivering the flavor that is-lost on paper filters. Simplicity works best and is the reason why the Chambord's design has not changed a bit from its original drawing. Make taste, not waste.

From the Manufacturer

When Bodum took over a small clarinet factory in Normandy in 1982, it was not because of the fine orchestra clarinets they were producing. In addition to musical instruments, the factory also produced the coffee of a relatively unknown brewer called "The Chambord." Bodum combined the skills of these Normandy craftspeople with modern production. The result was a unique culinary tool, affordable to the many who loved the taste of what we now know as French press coffee.

Thanks to Bodum, and thanks to the increasing need for better coffee, the French press coffeemaker has become one of the most popular in the world. Yet the design has not strayed a bit from the original drawings, and Bodum still makes the Chambord with the same painstaking care and knowledge they gained from those Normandy craftspeople years ago. The ease of brewing and the delicious smell and taste of French-roasted dark coffee have remained unchanged.

Awards and Accolades

In 2004 the Bodum Chambord coffee press received the American Culinary Institute's award for best French press coffeemaker.

The American Culinary Institute judges food preparation products such as mixers, waffle makers, and electric teakettles. These products are judged on criteria important to consumers such as ease of use, safety, and the quality of the food produced. The institute also judges food preparation products used in restaurants and hotels, including institutional mixers, large-volume coffee machines, and food slicers.

Instructions for Use

1. Place pot on a dry, flat, nonslip surface. Hold handle firmly, then pull the plunger straight up and out of the pot.

2. For each 1.25-deciliter/4-ounce cup, put 1 rounded tablespoon or 1 Bodum scoop of coarse-ground coffee into the pot.


Caution: Use only coarse ground coffee. Fine grind can clog the filter and create high pressure. Place coffeemaker on a heatproof, nonslip surface.

3. Pour hot (not boiling) water into the pot. Leave a minimum of 2.5 centimeters/1 inch of space at the top. Stir the brew with a plastic spoon.

Caution: Metal spoons can scratch or chip the glass beaker and cause breakage.

4. Place the plunger unit on top of the pot. Turn lid to close off the pour spout opening. (Does not apply to the Brazil models.) Do not press down. Let the coffee brew for at least 4 minutes.

5. Hold the pot handle firmly, with the spout turned away from you, then using just the weight of your hand, apply slight pressure on top of the knob to lower the plunger straight down into the pot. Lowering the plunger slowly with minimal pressure produces best results. If the filter clogs or it becomes difficult to push down the plunger, you should remove the plunger from the pot, stir the brew, and then slowly plunge again.

WARNING: Using excessive force can cause scalding liquid to shoot out of the pot.

6. Turn the lid to open the pour spout and then pour coffee.

7. Unscrew the filter assembly and clean the plunger unit after each use. All parts are dishwasher-safe.

Safety Instructions

  • Not for stovetop use.
  • Check glass beaker for scratches, cracks, or chips. Do not use a pot that is scratched, chipped, or cracked. Install a replacement beaker before using the pot again.
  • Keep children away while using. Hot water is a hazard to small children!
  • Do not allow children to use this coffeemaker.
Scald Hazard
  • Excessive plunging force can cause scalding hot liquid to shoot out of pot.
  • Do not plunge with force.
  • Turn lid to close spout.
  • Use only coarse-ground coffee.

Company History

In 1944 Peter Bodum, the father of today's owner, Joergen Bodum, started Bodum in Copenhagen. Times were difficult at the end of World War II; there was hardly any trade and people were out of work. Peter Bodum managed to wholesale a very small variety of housewares products by Danish manufacturers.

After the war Peter Bodum got an import license for kitchen and tabletop products; he traveled all over Europe and ended up importing kitchen and housewares to Denmark. As in the rest of Europe in those days, a lack of products in Denmark meant a market existed for almost anything to be sold. He specialized in glassware from Eastern Europe.

In the '50s Peter Bodum started developing his own products. He collaborated with the Danish architect Kaas Klaeson for a range of coffee makers. At the time, industrial-design-type kitchen products were very rare. The first Bodum product to hit the market in 1958 was the Santos coffeemaker--based on a vacuum coffee brewing system. It became an instant sensation not only in Denmark but in all of Europe. Bodum still produces the original Santos design to this very day.

Bodum grew steadily during the '60s, but sadly, in 1967, at the age of only 57, Peter Bodum passed away. His wife managed the company until 1974, when she offered her 26-year-old son Joergen to join her in the management of the company. Joergen quickly brought on board Carsten Joergensen--then a teacher at the Danish School of Art in Copenhagen--and soon put him in charge of overall design for Bodum, including everything from products to corporate design, exhibitions, shops, buildings, catalogs, and advertising. It turned out to be a very long and fruitful collaboration. The two men began to fulfill Bodum's credo--"good design doesn't have to be expensive"--in lots of different ways.

In 1974 the first fruit of Joergen and Carsten's collaboration was introduced: the French coffee press Bistro. It was also the first incorporation of the new Bodum design language--beautiful simplicity and excellent materials for everyday life. Many more variations of coffee presses followed. Since 1974 Bodum has produced over 50 million French presses, taken the leap from "coffee" to "kitchen," and developed and produced a large variety of beautiful household and tabletop designs.

In 1979, when he took over the company, Joergen Bodum decided to move to Switzerland in order to be more centrally located in Europe. He chose the Lucerne area, where Bodum's head office has been located since the early '80s.

In 1980 Bodum Switzerland and its design unit, Pi-Design, were founded. Then, in 1986, the opening of Bodum's first shop in London marked another milestone in the Bodum history. It was designed not only to be the perfect showcase for the large variety of Bodum products but to embody an even stronger presentation of Bodum as an international brand. Many more shops in many more cities all over the world followed: Paris, Copenhagen, Zurich, Lucerne, Tokyo, New York, Dallas, Okinawa, Auckland, and many more. To this day there are 52 Bodum stores worldwide.

With more and more of its own stores in place, Bodum continued broadening its collection of beautifully designed everyday life products--from kitchen to home. Today Bodum offers its customers everything from the latest coffee- and tea-making products to tabletop, kitchen, storage, textiles, bathroom, and home office products. Some stores also have a café where Bodum's own selection of coffees and teas are served.

The Bodum Group is, and always has been, a 100 percent family-owned business. Today the company operates in 14 different countries with over 700 employees worldwide. Bodum has holding companies in Denmark and Switzerland as well as 12 sales companies, 3 production companies, and a design company called Bodum Design Group, located in Switzerland.

Finally, a quality French Press that makes one full mug of coffee. The materials of the 17 oz Bodum Chambord are better than the plastic versions I've seen out there, although it does have a black plastic collar. Once I realized how well the collar worked to keep the coffee from splashing up when pressing, I was sold on it.

I have the 8 oz Chambord that I feel is just too small for a single cup of coffee. Nice for a little pick me up cup in the afternoon.
I also have an orange plastic Bodum 32 oz. which is perfect for 2 people
And a 48 oz black plastic (for 4 people)
When I serve coffee to guests, the large black does well for regular, the smaller orange press is good for decaf. But the overall quality is not great for everyday.

For my daily morning mug, this is it! I can't believe I didn't buy this sooner. It makes my morning ritual a perfect little taste of luxury.

I found the Bodum Chambord 4 Cup French Press to work just fine. Seems to be of good quality too. For those of you (like me) that like a nice big cup of coffee - I find this to really only be TWO cups... so if you are a heavy consumer of coffee - you might opt for a larger size.

Other than that - I'm very happy with the purchase.

I was thrilled to receive this little French Press for Christmas. The coffee was great and I loved the whole ritual of its production. This morning I noticed the carafe had cracked! It hadn't been dropped. I's only purpose is to hold boiling hot water. And it's only the Twelfth Day of Christmas! I['m very disappointed, especially because I threw out my electric coffee maker and don't know what I'll do for coffee in the morning. I will contact Bodum to see if they'll replace this at no charge. I used it 10 mornings.....and although the coffee was good, it wasn't $3.80 a pot good.

I have purchased two of these products (the second being the taller version) within a course of 4 months. Both times the glass beaker came unglued from the metal container. As a result, it always swiveled around and slipped out while pouring or pressing down the handle. The lid was also wobbly, and the press itself wasn't snug inside the beaker. The first time it broke, I was washing the beaker in the sink, grasping it tightly with my hand so it doesn't fall, when the beaker simply shattered in my fingers. I purchased a replacement (from Target), and within months I noticed a hairline crack in the glass container. I do not have a dishwasher, wash everything by hand, and specifically wash the french press last so as not to break it. The glass beaker finally shattered (into thousands of pieces) when it shifted while drying in the second compartment of the sink. I was at starbucks not too long ago and saw the recall sign for Bodum french presses bought at Starbucks. The reason - the glass beaker shatters, causing injury. I purchased an 8.99 french press from ikea, and have had no problems. The Ikea french press also has much sturdier construction.

Okay so this really only makes about two cups of coffee (otherwise I'd have given it a 5). That said, it does make good coffee providing you use coarsely ground coffee per the recommendation. And if you are using the coffee grinder in a grocery store, that means brushing out the dust from the previous user otherwise you'll have tiny coffee grounds in your cup the following morning.

We bought the french press because our Keurig machine was having electronics problems, and because of k-cup prices. Our first Keurig was replaced under warranty at 11 months, now the second one has issues. The french press is a bit slower but the coffee it makes is good enough that we are taking the Keurig off the counter as soon as we finish up our last few k-cups

I rarely make more than one cup of coffee at a time, however, this will allow me to make two 8 ounce cups if I so desire. The only problem I have been experiencing is I have trouble getting the water to the right temperature. The instructions say to use hot, not boiling, water. I need to find some easy way to measure the temperature so I can pull my kettle off the stove before the water boils. Next you need to pour the water over the coarsely ground coffee and stir and let it sit for "at least four minutes". Then you use the press, pour and drink. Guess what?
After 4 minutes of steeping, the liquid starts cooling off and the result is that your coffee is not piping hot the way I like it. Then I have to put it in the microwave for about 15 seconds. However, I must admit that the coffee tastes and smells pretty darn good.

The Bodum French press is elegant and makes a great cup of coffee. I like the results better than any other way of making coffee. But the one I bought had a loose screw holding the handle and metal frame tight around the glass. When I held it over the sink to wash it, the glass crashed down, shattering, and the screw went down the drain. I couldn't find the screw and it nearly wrecked my disposal. You can get a new glass carafe, but if you have to go to the hardware store for a new screw, it isn't worth the trouble. So, great machine, but a huge nuisance if they didn't assemble it properly.
