Product Description

The CHAMBORD Coffeemaker is the Original French Press. 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 coffeemaker has become one of the most popular coffeemakers in the world is pure and simple- taste. The materials 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. 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. Simplicity works best and is the reason why the Chambord’s design has not changed a bit from its original drawing. This 8-cup model (1.0 l, 34 oz.) features a BPA-free, SAN plastic carafe which is shatter-resistant. Also available in 3 cup (0.35 l, 12 oz.), 4cup (0.6, 17oz.) and 12 cup (1.5 l, 51 oz.) size models.

I bought this for my son in college. Wish I had gotten this one for myself instead of the breakable glass model. (BTW, the inside pieces do not interchange. You cannot simply buy an unbreakable beaker to replace the breakable glass one - sigh.) If you want good coffee, this will be part of your equipment. Be aware presses use a four ounce cup, NOT the standard 8 ounce cup when you buy one. An "eight cup" press will not make 8 cups and certainly not 8 mugs.

I ordered this product but later replaced it with the glass version because the shatterproof model's plunger is "sticky", unlike the plunger used in the glass model.

Because the plunger's edge seal is silicone, it sticks to the carafe when you reverse its direction. This caused the plunger to lift the carafe out of its holder in the model I received. (Your mileage may vary.)

For me, the smooth mechanics of the glass version outweigh the shatterproof-ness of this model.

No qualms about this being Bodum or being a French Press - if you are ordering you probably already know plain & simple. However, this is the "shatterproof" beaker - I did not realize that would mean it's some grade of plastic - I probably should have thought more about it. Anyways, if you are wanting the original with the glass this is not it - just look a little further - and yes, the product is different - different feel and different taste to the coffee.

Let me first say that I don't typically write reviews for products. Most products I purchase work as advertised and I never feel compelled. This french-press, however, does warrant an exception. While it IS advertised as shatterproof, that would be correct if you dropped it, slammed it, or otherwise tried to break it intentionally. It is not made of glass, it is made of plastic, so shatterproof it IS. On the other hand, if you do what you're supposed to do with this shatterproof material, which would be to add coffee grounds and hot water to it, the container will crack and leak due to the temperature differential between room temperature and the hot water. This is junk and I will be contacting Bodum for a replacement carafe, hopefully made of GLASS. I would gladly sacrifice break-ability for something that held up to hot water being poured into it. 2 stars only because it's worked fine for the last 6 months since I purchased it. It's become cooler out due to the weather changing and it seems this plastic composite just can't hold up.

Calling Bodum to return or replace. Bottom already cracked! So much for their shatterproof claim. No better than glass. Extra money was a waste.

I bought this as a gift, based on the reputation of the brand, and some personal experience with other (cheaper) presses. I just visited the gift recipient, and got to see this press for the first time myself. How disappointing to see it in person! Overall it works fine, but the top & filter assembly is flimsy & cheap-feeling. The flask is nice with a good enough metal frame, but the top is cheap metallic-flash-coated plastic, and the fit of the lid is a little loose. It doesn't seal tight against the flask. The filter looks like a flimsy plastic assembly (maybe nylon?) - it may work OK, no idea about longevity, so neutral comments about that piece. However, the plunger is too long for the flask, and therefore when pushed all the way down flat against the grounds, it does not hold the top in place. That means during pouring you have to put your thumb on the (hot) lid, or else the lid will lift up about 1/4". This may not seem like such an issue, but that means the seal around the lid lifts up from the flask, and the coffee pours out the lip, but also around the lid near the lip, making an unruly waterfall of coffee, not a directed stream from the spout. Overall I am disappointed to see what I gave as a gift, having expected a higher quality item. I suppose this is the risk of buying a gift on line instead of directly from Macy's or some other retail establishment, where I could hold it in my hand before buying. If I could sneak it out of this house & return it I would. It just is not the quality object I had expected from this brand. It works, it's OK, so I cannot rate it any lower than "OK", but it definitely is a let-down from the nice glass-and-metal French press that I had expected, and I definitely cannot say "I love it". Functionally, my own 2 other cheaper French presses work better, even if they are not as elegant in appearance.

It may be shatterproof, but the hot water made hairline cracks on the plastic...I returned mine for a glass unit. I rather have a glass unit that may shatter, then a plastic unit for hot water. Besides that, its a Bodum, I use them everyday for rich coffee.

This "shatterproof" carafe cracked after 1 month. We were initially disappointed that it was plastic instead of glass, but got over it figuring it would hold up better than the glass ones. No such luck. A huge crack appeared this morning when I filled it with hot water.
