Awful Company


The press makes good coffee and keeps it warm for a good period of time. The body of the carafe is durable, but the plastic filter/screen inside is not. The seal around the edge comes undone, and Bodun refused to warranty the part. Their customer...

A great french press


Cooks Illustrated recommended this and I am very pleased I tried it. I have always liked french press coffee but it get cold so quickly in a traditional carafe. This solves that problem. Highly recommend.

Works and looks great


I have been using a Bodum press for years now. Press coffee is great tasting and doesn't need an electrical outlet in my tiny kitchen. The glass beaker in my old Bodum press would break occasionally and I'd have to order a replacement at
