The price on this 8-cup model doesn't deviate by more that a couple of bucks amoung retailers, so I bought at Amazon and if I ever need parts, I can buy direct at Bodum's web site. As Bodum doesn't "outdate" their products every couple years like other mfg's, you should have piece of mind knowing that you'll not have to part with your french press if something tragic happens to it.
Enjoy excellent coffee.
First, let me say that a press makes fabulous coffee. The principle is simple. Put some freshly ground coffee in the glass beaker; add boiling water straight from the kettle, stir, wait a few minutes, then press the plunger to take all the grounds to the bottom of the carafe. You'll have a hot, rich, lovely brew. The typical drip coffee maker doesn't seem to get the water hot enough to bring out the full flavor of the beans; percolators keep boiling the coffee and can turn bitter; and home versions of espresso machines are very expensive. When you add the boiling water to good coffee in a press, watch the crema start to form and smell the glorious aroma. Perfection!
My only reservation about this model is that the Eileen frame, while absolutely beautiful, doesn't seem to hold the carafe as snugly as the Chambord model. Although the carafe doesn't seem in danger of slipping out of the frame while you're pouring, there is definitely extra room there. I'd also be careful with the plastic knob on top of the plunger. The clean up isn't difficult - everything comes apart and goes into the dishwasher. If something does break, Amazon carries standard Bodum replacement parts.
One more tip, if you want your coffee with milk served hot, just put a glass of milk in the microwave for a couple of minutes. That way can add all the milk you like without making the coffee cold. If you really want to go all the way, check out some of the milk frothers available on Amazon. It's an inexpensive gadget that turns skim and lowfat milk into a decadent, creamy foam.
Ahhhhh....life is good!

Remove glass carafe. Gently squeeze metal holder to make it slightly oval instead of round. Reinsert carafe.Published 2 months ago by Daniel
