The Brazil French Press coffee maker, designed in the early 80's, was our first coffee maker and quickly became a symbol of what Bodum stands for. Attractive and functional design at an affordable price. The Brazil has a heat resistant, SAN - shatterproof beaker and a polypropylene handle and base, which make the Brazil easy to use and easy to clean. The 3-part stainless steel plunger has a fine mesh filter, which allows for a premium extraction of your coffee’s aromatic oils and subtle flavors. A mesh filter allows this flavor to be delivered direct to your cup and not absorbed by a paper filter. Plus, no paper filter means no waste. The patented safety lid prevents the splashing of liquids while pressing. All parts are dishwasher safe. This 8-cup coffeemaker is (1.0 l, 34oz.) in size and is also available in 3-cup (0.35 l, 12 oz) size model.

As for the plunger; it's plastic mesh, and I thought I wouldn't like it. But it's much easier to clean than the layered metal screen in the press I had previously. And it makes a better seal so grounds do not migrate around.
From a klutzy guy, I'd say it's more than worth the $$ to keep from breaking the glass carafes.
UPDATE 09-15-11 De-rated to 3 stars.
After 1 year of use (mostly on the weekends) the polycarbonate has developed multiple hairline cracks all over it. Maybe this was from putting it the dishwasher, but who knows? When you plunge it, hot coffee shoots out of the cracks all over the place. I ended up replacing it with another glass one. If I was going to spend the extra money for a shatterproof press, you'd think it would last longer than 1 year with occasional use. I loved this thing and now I'm pretty disappointed.
One note I'll throw in - I never put mine through a dishwasher, and the only scratches it shows are from poor packing on my part when other items would rub against the carafe. I've recommended it to LOTS of people!
The plastic guide inside the lid was broken out of the box, so the lid flopped on the rod, but that doesn't really affect the function of it, so I didn't knock it off for that. You have the screen up against the lid when you put it into the pot anyway, and after that, the pot stabilizes it.
I used it every day for a year and a half, then left that job and didn't use it for a while. About two months ago I dug it out when I needed to make some coffee, and noticed silver lines up the carafe. When I poured in the water, it made crackling sounds. The third time after I used it, I noticed coffee oozing out through the cracks as I pushed the plunger.
I wanted to love this. I've always liked Bodum devices. This one's plunger worked pretty well, not letting much in the way of grounds out around the edge and it was pretty easy to clean. The pot was big enough to get my giant paws into so I always hand-washed it, but after two years it's worn out.
If you don't mind replacing it every 10-16 months as others have mentioned, it's a good pot and shatter proof. If you can buy just the carafe and wrestle the old one out of the frame, it may be worth it. But for me, I'm going to go back to my older glass Bodum one, and see if I can use the lid from this one. (The one that broke lived at work, the one I'm going back to stayed home.)
1. It's shatterproof
2. It's microwavable
3. It makes 3 cups... if your version of a cup of coffee measures 4 measly ounces. Otherwise, plan on it making one good sized mug of coffee.
1. it's made of plastic
2. The plunger is no longer able to be dismantled for thorough cleaning.
I bought this to replace the prior version, which used a glass carafe which shattered when it slipped out of my hands during dishwashing and landed on the kitchen floor. When I saw that the new model was shatterproof, I immediately jumped on it... and was disappointed to find out it's shatterproof because its made out of plastic and not some magical shatterproof glass. I used to simply fill the glass version of this press with water and pop it into the microwave to heat up the water. Now with it being all plastic, I'm not sure I want to be microwaving this plastic part despite all this ballyhoo about being BPA free and the such. So now there's an extra step in the morning where the water gets microwaved in another container before being poured into this press. Still makes a good mug of coffee.
If you wanted a decent item to cold brew or didn't drink hot beverages on the daily, this would probably work for you. Otherwise, stick with glass and just be careful.
