Product Description

Product Description

An instant success, the Young Press has brought out the “kid” in many coffee lovers. Originally designed to add a younger, “hip” look to the Bodum assortment of coffee makers, the Young Press has stolen the hearts of coffee lovers from all age groups. The design is unique. We have taken our durable, heat-resistant borosilicate glass beaker and surrounded it with a santoprene (similar to a rubber or hard wetsuit type feel) frame. The frame has built in polycarbonate windows so that you can still see the brewing process.

Amazon.com

A hip little vessel with a time-tested design, the Young press from Bodum makes great coffee without paper filters, power cords, or complicated procedures. The stylish black and red design nests a borosilicate glass beaker inside a hard rubber frame with polycarbonate windows to show off coffee colors. Just add hot water and grounds, wait a few minutes, and plunge the filter. A fine screen presses the grounds to the bottom while leaving the beans' oil in the brew, so coffee is easy to pour and delicious to drink. Meanwhile, you avoid the extra step, cost, and waste of paper filters. Safe in the dishwasher, the press holds 34 ounces. Replacement beakers are available separately should breakage occur. --Emily Bedard

From the Manufacturer

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 coffee maker 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 coffeemakers. 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.

I wanted a coffee press or a 'plunger,' as they call it in Australia, as a backup for our regular drip coffee maker. Living in a rural area, we tend to lose power several times each winter, and vowed not to chew the grinds in 'camp coffee' every time. Of all the models, I chose this one for it's attractive, whimsical design, and protection over the glass beaker. The body exterior is rubber and clear plastic, which protects the removable and replaceable glass vessel within. The handle is sturdy. The plastic top cover feels a bit flimsy, but seems fine, since it doesn't do any hard labor. The plunger itself works as well as any other I've used (belonging to others). A bonus that I didn't expect, is the extra insulation the outer skin provides, keeping the coffee hot for a lot longer than a naked glass pot.

I have Bodum's double walled cups and I wanted to get their double walled tea pot, but that sucker is $60! So I hunted around and finally found this. Even though they don't advertise it as double walled, that's what it is.

You have a removable glass beaker inside and a plastic polycarbonate outer shell. There's a few millimeters of space between the two and that's enough to insulate the inside and keep the outside cool. I use this to brew tea and the double wall keeps the tea inside nice and very hot.

The wide mouth makes this easy to clean as well. And at $20, for Bodum quality, it's a steal, just wonderful!

3.5 year update: It's now 2011 and I guess everything has gone up. It's no longer $20. I think back in 2007 it was $30 with $10 off to make it $20. I still have this and I still use it whenever I need to make more than 2-3 cups of tea.

It still works great and I haven't broken it in the wash yet!

But please, please read the instructions if you aren't familiar with "press" coffee making. They're clear and touch on all the possible pitfalls for the newbie.

Then, enjoy a really well-designed, well-made French press. Another reviewer has mentioned its most outstanding design characteristics. It's attractive, a tad more rugged than most, and most important: it makes great coffee.

This product works well, is easy to clean and keeps the hot coffee hot longer because of an outer plastic container which also protects the glass interior from breakage. The only problem is that it should not be considered an 8 cup coffee maker (maybe in France) but only about 3 average sized cups was all I got from it. I allow the coffee to steep in hot water about 5 minutes and then the 3 cups are ready.

Seriously, although this is my first french press its amazing. I did a s*** ton of research before I bought this one and I'm glad I did.

Advantages:
-- Great construction
-- The plastic insulates the coffee so the second cup doesnt get cold.
-- I dropped it, it didnt break (may have gotten lucky, but still, I wouldnt want to drop those others)
-- Even though its insulated you can see the sexy through the clear plastic
-- The coffee is good, you wont realize how much better until you try it (compared to kerig/traditional)
-- Seriously, why are you still reading, buy it.

Disadvantages:
-- none that I can think of yet (will update if something comes up)

Even if this is your French Press (or maybe especially if it is) this is great. Im younger (20s) and my friends make fun of me for french pressing my coffee, until they try it. Everything has a quality about it and it was well designed. Appreciate the Design, Appreciate the coffee, Appreciate the process and drink up the worlds most widely used psychoactive drug (caffeine).

I have used the above press numerous times by now and am very satisfied with it. The rubber cover makes it easier to manage and less likely to break (which happened to my previous one) and the coffee comes out just right.

There are many reasons to get this Bodum coffee press. 1. the best priced 8 cup bodum there is. 2. Coffee presses give you 'virgin' coffee flavor. 3. the carafe is nesteled in and protected by the durable frame that is made of santoprene - a hard rubber like material. The windows are made of clear polycarbonate. If you were ever afriad you'd break your Chambord style press, as I have been many times, get the Young Press instead.

Update: May 2013

Well, my roommate broke the glass carafe while I was away AND threw the entire thing in the trash. OMG. Silly woman. So...while I have not yet replaced this one (and I will at some point in the near future), I have to reiterate what an outstanding buy this was. Start to finish, this one was in use for about 5 1/2 years. Oh, I originally bought this in Hawaii and when I moved back to Colorado it made the trip via USPS over the big blue waters just fine (when most of my other glassware did not).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Update: Dec 2011

I've had this press now for nearly 3 years. Couldn't be happier with the product. Have not replaced the mesh screen either. No need to as it's still in great shape. Cannot recommend this product highly enough or any other Bodum product I've owned or bought as gifts.

Guess I am drinking more coffee now because a roommate broke the Kenya 17oz press about 2 years ago and never bothered to replace it. This also keeps my coffee hotter for longer than the others. The bubbles help with insulation. No more problems with fogging after resetting the panels the first time.

~~~~~~~~
August 2008

I've had mine now for 6 months (Jan 2008) and couldn't be happier. I too had a bit of fogging between the glass and the plastic...I just took it apart and reset the plastic panels. And yes, water gets between the glass and plastic...but honestly folks doesn't anyone turn this upside down to dry? It's really a non issue if you do.

I love the look and feel of this product. It's sturdy, comfortable in my rather small hands, keeps my coffee hotter, longer than other French presses.

I am reigning klutz supreme and I haven't broken it yet!

I will note that this size is a bit large for me living alone...I rarely use it to capacity, so I'm ordering the 17 oz Kenya press for weekday mornings.
