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.
It's really nice to not have to worry about breaking the glass now, but this coffee press isn't as nice as our glass one was. This one is entirely made of plastic. The plunger, the handle, the lid, are all made of cheap plastic. Our major complaint is that the plunger, being a different style than in the glass carafes, always allows ground to get into our coffee. I don't know why it's doing that but our old one didn't do that and it had an entirely metal plunger.
If I could find a press with a shatterproof carafe and a metal plunger I would be happy. Why, oh why, can't Bodum make a glass carafe that doesn't break when you look at it wrong?? I much prefer the glass if it wasn't so fragile.
Cons: Glued slighty off-kilter (The leaning tower of Ethiopian Mordecafe!), lid doesn't fit snugly.
Overall, we love this press. We almost love it more BECAUSE of it's flaws. When we grind our beans too fine, we have no problem plunging it nice and smoothly. It forgives our flaws, so we forgives its flaws. I have used many different models in my decade working in coffee houses, and wouldn't say this is the nicest press in the world, but it sure does the trick! Due to the low price, this will get purchased by a lot of beginners. I think that you will be quite happy with your purchase!
I would recommend this model for beginners, for backpacking, and for anyone looking to get a solid press for a low price!
In addition to the the total failure of the device in less than a year, the quality of the filter is much worse than the one found on the glass chambord model. Instead of having the nice three piece unit that can be taken apart and cleaned, this one includes a single plastic piece.
If you are looking for a french press and you think you can avoid dropping it, or banging it against things, buy a glass model, because this thing is was a piece of junk for me.
