Product Description

Product Packaging: Frustration-Free Packaging

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.

Having recently retired and gotten increasingly disastisfied with the taste of the coffee from my enormous, expensive, stainless steel drip machine, I decided to treat myself to a Bodum 8 cup coffee press at long last. Like a previous reviewer, I wondered if it would be "precious" or too complicated to deal with...and if the taste of the coffee would really be worth the "bother."

I am extremely pleased with the ease of preparation and the taste of the coffee. I actually consider the brewing and clean-up LESS complicated than my big drip coffee maker--and it was supposedly "top of the line" from Starbucks. First and foremost, there are fewer parts to mess about with. I always had to dump the used coffee grinds out of the gold reusable cone (and I always had a tough time sliding the plastic collar back on to it), scrub the stainless steel container, remove the water tank and fill it with filtered water, put everything back togeher, always ground my own beans....and the coffee still never tasted smooth enough to suit me. Brewing with a French Press is no more fussy than making a pot of tea. And scraping out the used grounds from the glass carafe into the trash (or compost bin) with a plastic scraper is easier on my psyche than banging the gold filter on the side of the kitchen trash can to try to remove the sloppy, messy grounds--and then scrubbing the filter, the filter holder, etc. After disposing of the grounds from the glass container, all that's left to do is rinsing the glass carafe and mesh strainer with hot running water, which takes only a few minutes. I appreciate the warnings about the carafe's fragility from other reviewers...I suspected as much because it does seem delicate. But it will be worth the extra care.

The screen at the bottom of the plunger is attached to some sort of black plastic collar on the shaft. The collar gives the coffee a little plastic taste, and ultimately developed cracks from heat and age, and finally broke. Now, the whole thing is useless. Replacing the plunger would just subject me to the same bad taste and failure.

It has been replaced with a La Cafetiere. It is all metal, is lower priced, and has a lower price for a replacement carafe.

I love French press coffee and have been using Bodum presses for several years, but just noticed this morning that the glass container in the one I'm using now is cracked. This is the third press I've bought in less than a year, the other two also having cracked and eventually shattered containing hot coffee. I've taken the utmost care of the last two, being careful to wash them by hand and treating both very gingerly. I believe the cracks result from hot water expanding the glass. I've got friends whose Bodum presses have also cracked and shattered. Bodum needs to make their containers out of Pyrex or another stronger, heat resistant glass. A replacement glass container costs almost as much as the entire press. Too bad; either Bodum doesn't get it or they figure they can make greater profit off replacement containers. I'm not buying another; I'll be looking for a different press that's stronger and resistant to cracking and sudden failure from heat expansion and impact. Any suggestions?

So I have been using coffee presses since I lived in France in the 1990s. In the last year I have owned 3 of this exact same model. I don't drink coffee often, usually tea. So I use a coffee press once or twice a week. So that means in a year I am using it 50 to 100 times. To have 3 break in one year is really bad. When you first buy it the glass is glued or attached to the metal. But after a month or 2 it becomes unattached and while washing it the glass slips out and breaks. Bad design.

I have to figure out what brand I used to use that didn't do this.

Also don't try to to use the contact form on the Bodum site. I filled out the form 4 times in the last month and also found a sales@ email address as well as an admin@ email adress. After no response to the contact form I emailed and the most recent was Sept 30th. No response to 4 contact forms and 2 emails. I had a simple question as to how much it would cost to replace the glass. Turns out there is a .21 cent difference in buying a replacement glass from their site or buying a brand new one here on Amazon. Wow .21 cents.

Not impressed with the product. Not impressed with the customer service of the company. But I know I am not reviewing the company's customer service here on Amazon. The review is for the product but I thought you guys should know how unresponsive the company is.

I bought my first Bodum french press in 1981 and still have it along with another purchased in 2006. The only noticeable difference between the two was that they replaced the wood handle with a melamine like plastic; not a bad thing as the wood tended to loosen with use. Both units were made in Germany even though Bodum was, and is, a Danish company. After breaking the glass beaker in the newer one (my fault entirely) I was a little shocked to find the going price for a replacement was anywhere from $25 to $30. Instead, for less than $20 more, I ordered a brand new unit planning on having a "spare parts kit" for my originals.

Unfortunately, the unit I received was made in Portugal and just about everything about it had been cheapened in the seven years since I purchased my last one. The chromed brass frame is about half as thick as my first two (5.6 oz. vs. 10.55 oz.), they replaced the little wood top knob with a molded plastic ball, and the kitchy melamine handle is now a cheap feeling molded plastic that removes much of the bistro charm. But the worst "improvement" is a totally unnecessary plastic sheath that blocks off the lip of the beaker when depressing the plunger and then requires the user to turn the top to the "open" position. I can only presume this is some lame safety feature that their lawyers thought was a good idea because we were all too stupid to read the instructions. Like the frame, the new top weighs less than half what the original did and is now fitted with plastic grommets rather than the stainless steel nut and washer thereby adding another piece of soon to fail (and impossible to repair) cheap plastic that compromises the simple, hassle free charm of the original french press.
