Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: BonJour Coffee Unbreakable Plastic French Press, 12.7-Ounce, Ami-Matin(tm), Green (Kitchen)
I purchased this after breaking two of the Bodum presses (they shatter easily). It's an improvement over the other Bonjour plastic press which received low reviews for not being durable. I like it much better than the Bodum. Both of the Bodum (3 cup) presses leaked a little from the bottom when pouring. This is perfect for ONE delicious mug of coffee,and I like the fact that I could order it in a color other than black.
Note- ignore "3 cups" It's 12 ounces and actually a little less since you can't fill it to the top or you won't be able to press.

One complaint of the Bonjour v. the Bodum is that the Bonjour has some type of plastic part in the plunger while the Bodum is metal. I just broke my Bodum beaker and I'm considering my alternatives to replace it. Does this Bonjour have plastic in the plunger, and has it been a problem? I saw a reference in a post to a "petite" Bonjour that is all metal. Thanks.

The base of the plunger is a hard plastic with a metal screen and a rubber like outer ring which is like a gasket. It hasn't been a problem yet and I do use it daily. I have noticed that there are more grounds lately than the Bodum in the last sip poured; but that could be do to my coffee grind, rather than a design flaw. It's a negligible amount that's avoided by not pouring the last tablespoon. So far I am very satisfied with it.

My first experience with a French press and was 1 surprised at the small yield, not 3 cups which doesn't bother me 2 not sure how to clean this. I've always heard that coffee grounds are bad for garbage disposals and with the grounds packed into the bottom it will be difficult to clean and not get grounds into the sink. Any tips for removing the grounds?

I no longer use a French Press, but when I did, I put a sheet of paper towel in the sink and dumped the grounds on it. Then all I had to do was pick it up at the corners and throw it in the garbage can.
