5 Years and Counting
I have had my Bodum 32 oz French Press for over 5 years now and I look forward to using it every morning. Drip Coffee just can't hold a candle to this baby. It consistently produces the deepest, most aromatic coffee without ever burning the beans! It also makes great loose leaf teas.

Though the press has help up very well over the past 5 years, I think it's about time for me to replace the mesh filter, but aside from that, there is no real noticable wear to my french press

This is the only coffee maker you will ever need!
I don't know why I waited so long to get a French press, but I am glad I have one now. It has put to shame my old countertop drip coffee maker-I have throw it out as a matter of fact. The taste is beyond comparison. I have yet to experience a bad cup of coffee with my Bodum French Press. I have brewed all types of beans from the darkest roast to the light milds and the verdict is the same. Excellent! So you can keep your fancy digital Robot coffee maker contraptions, I will be the guy with Bodum enjoying my superior cup of coffee. Those machines are pretty to look at- so you got that going for you. Enjoy

Morning Bliss!
All other coffee preparations fail to compare to the rich and perfectly balanced French Press! I have tried all other types but this is the only one for me! Make sure to coarse grind your beans and let steep for the 4 minutes, stir and press

Great French Press!
Received this french press as a wedding shower gift, and have been hugely impressed. We were looking for something to use when making coffee for one person or during a power outage. The 32 oz. press makes enough coffee for 3-4 cups. It's easy to clean and use. The overall result is wonderful. Much better cup of coffee than our drip maker produces, with less fuss and effort! I would highly recommend this product. I doubt we'll use it every day since we drink a lot of coffee, but it's perfect for weekends or after dinner coffee

Best Coffee Ever
It's simple, it's cheap (for a coffee machine), and it makes one of the best cups of coffee ever. All you need is a decent coffee grinder (Bodum makes a good one for about $100-150, which means you can buy both for about the same price as a crappy drip machine), and you're good to go. Forever. My only complaint is that this french press does not come in a multi-gallon size.

The beaker broke after using for a month
We were very excited about our French Press purchase and happy with the coffee till the glass beaker started developing cracks after only a month of use. We were super careful about how we handled it but one day while making coffee we noticed one crack and after a few weeks another new one which has made it unusable.

Excellent, 1-Liter french press
The "8-cup" is 32 oz. and it is enough coffee for 2 people who drink a large cup each in the morning. Very nice looking and works well.

The Bodum French Press is the very best on the market. I've owned and used several of them. They're sturdy and the glass keeps the heat in while brewing. Best cup of coffee!!

French press coffee is the best
Tracey W on Jul 31, 2016
We recently re-discovered the beauty and convenience of French Press coffee. Unfortunately, the Bodum we had (15 years old at least!!) finally gave out - we broke the beaker - and I decided to start fresh with a new, updated version. I'm also very excited about the size options and we are looking forward to receiving our 8 cup version soon!

It is big and from a trusted brand with easy to replace parts.
Edward S on Apr 17, 2016
My daughter does not have more than a 0e-cup filter and there will be many of us at her house. I have never had a french press. I thought it possible that my daughter might not really want a bigger coffeepot and if that is the case, I would bring it home for myself.

How many cups will a 12oz Bodum Chambord French press make? A 17oz?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2011
BEST ANSWER: No brewing method extracts more flavor from the precious bean than the French press. Easy to use, it offers an intensely aromatic cup of java. These pots have a heat-resistant borosilicate glass container held by a chrome-plated frame.This comes in severa sizes 12 oz, 17oz, 32oz or 48oz. The twelve ounce will make 2 6oz cups of coffee, The 17 oz will make approximately 3 5.5-6oz cups of coffee, the 32oz will make about 6 5oz cups of coffee and the 48 oz will make 8 6oz cups of coffee. It goes by the standard European measurement for a cup of coffee which is 5-6oz instead of the 8oz American Standard
Where is the Bodum Chambord French Presses manufactured?
Lucille P on Oct 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: According to the box it is designed in Switzerland and made in Portugal. I use mine at least 2 times a day for bulk herb teas. Good purchase!
Glass carafe molded too small? It slips out of the holder when pouring hot coffee and the plunger sticks especially when hot. Anyone else, too? Sep 2014
pj c on Aug 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I haven't seen any reviews from others having this problem. It sounds like yours might be defective. Feel free to return it for a refund or replacement.
Is this a good choice to buy for making cold brewed coffee?
A shopper on Aug 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We make cold brew in ours all the time... Or at least our version... make it hot then serve over ice. (probably makes some coffee lovers freak out!)
What country is the French press made in?
Mary T on Nov 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Portugal.
Can you use this to brew loose tea too?
A shopper on Nov 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The press has a fine screen. As long as the tea isn't powered, it would work. Note that the press does not push all the way to the bottom of the beaker (carafe). Be sure to check the slide of the plunger before using it. If it sticks or requires any exertion then the glass beaker has a flaw that narrows the size. It should slide easily. Good luck.
Is the french press made of stainless steel or aluminum?
A shopper on Dec 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Chrome plated
The sizes listed on the website are per cup, but don't indicate the size per cup. What are the ounces for each?
A shopper on Dec 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The basic assumption is that a cup is 5-6 oz.

The twelve ounce will make 2 6oz cups of coffee, The 17 oz will make approximately 3 5.5-6oz cups of coffee, the 32oz will make about 6 5oz cups of coffee and the 48 oz will make 8 6oz cups of coffee. It goes by the standard European measurement for a cup of coffee which is 5-6oz instead of the 8oz American Standard
In which country is the French press coffee maker made?
Mary T on Nov 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is produced in Portugal.
how do I make coffee in this ?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 1. Place press on flat table or counter top.

2. Add coffee grounds. Course grounds only. Fine grounds may clog presses filter.

3. Pour in hot water. NOT boiling. Boiling burns the coffee, leaves a bad taste & could damage the glass.

4. Stir a few times to mix water & grounds throughly. PLASTIC spoon only. Carelessly clanking a metal spoon around inside could scratch or crack the press after repeated uses.

5. Put lid on & rotate to lock. DO NOT press plunger down just yet.

6. Let sit about 4 minutes for wonderful flavor.

7. Press plunger down slowly. Do not slam down, hot coffee may splurt out.

8. Pour into cup, kick back & enjoy.
How much coffee shall I use to how much water. If I want to make three cups, what is the ratio of coffee to water?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: For details check YouTube for users making coffee. Note that if you use fine grind it will be more like Turkish as this uses a screen.
From the Bodum website:
Instructions for Use
1 Place pot on a dry, flat, non-slip surface.
Hold handle firmly. Turn the lid counter
clockwise to unlock, then pull the plunger unit
straight up and out of the pot.
2 For each cup (1.25 dl or 4 oz), put 1 rounded
tbsp or 1 BODUM® scoop of coarse ground
coffee into the pot. CAUTION: Use only coarse
ground coffee. Fine grind can clog the filter
and create high pressure. Place coffee maker
on a heat proof, non-slip surface.
3 Pour hot (not boiling) water into the pot.
Leave a minimum of 2,5 cm/1 inch of space
at the top. Stir the brew with a plastic spoon.
CAUTION: Metal spoons can scratch or chip
the glass beaker and cause breakage.
4 Place the plunger unit on top of the press.
Turn the lid clockwise to gently snap into the
lock. Do not press down.
Let the coffee brew for at least 4 min.
5 Hold the pot handle firmly with the spout
turned away from you, then using just the
weight of your hand, apply slight pressure on
top of the knob to lower the plunger straight
down into the pot. Lowering the plunger slowly
with minimal pressure produces best results.
If the filter clogs or it becomes difficult to
push down the plunger you should remove
the plunger from the pot, stir the brew and
then slowly plunge again. WARNING: Using
excessive force can cause scalding liquid
to shoot out of the pot.
6 Assure lid is in locked position before
pouring. Press the lever on the locking lid to
open the spout and then pour the coffee.
7 Cleaning – Unscrew the filter assembly
and clean the plunger unit after each use.
All parts are dishwasher safe.
