Summary: Great looking press! Stainless steel so it won't break like my glass one did. Insulated, keeps liquid hot for a longer time. I had a Bodum glass press which I really liked, but the fragile glass broke very easily. It too was insulated, but this stainless steel one is better at keeping things hot. The only thing which could be improved is the plunger which is harder to push down as compared to my glass press. But it is not that bothersome. Altogether, an excellent item!
Summary: I bought this because it was the biggest I could find. By far the BEST!! coffee pot I have ever had. Absolutely no complaints. The only coffee pot I will ever use again. My Mom is going to buy one after seeing mine. Well worth the price! My highest compliments-- from a coffee lover!!
Summary: Bought this after going thru countless Bodum glass presses( glass broke). Highly recommended by my sister in law - and we love it. It presses well, keeps coffee warm and is easy to clean. Well worth the price!
Great French Press! We will never worry about it breaking.

Summary: We love fresh roasted beans and French brewed coffee. This seemed to be the best product for the cost. I have had glass French presses. Glass presses do not keep the coffee hot and break easily. We treated the plastic ring with a vinegar solution and have had no residual after taste. It is a nice design and ease to serve. This is an excellent product and I will never worry about about the pitcher breaking.
Great looking and larger capacity than avg coffee press
5 March 2012
Summary: We prefer coffee from a press and the one we had was smaller capacity and wasn't enough for our morning fix. We bought this 12 cup Bodum press and it is great. I love the design. We moved away from glass presses years ago because we kept breaking them. I think it keeps the coffee plenty warm but it's not like a real thermal carafe/thermos-- if it sits out for a hour the coffee will not be hot.
Summary: I've used French press pots to make coffee for over 12 years, love the coffee made this way, and wanted a larger pot than was available when I purchased my last one. This pot is it! I can now make only 1 or 2 pots in the morning rather than 5 or 6 smaller pots. I love this pot! The double-walled steel keeps the coffee hot for a couple of hours while I go about my morning routine.
