Summary: The Bodum Electric Vacuum was my favorite until they stopped making them, so I tried this and it really is more of a pain than it is worth usually. I knew what I was buying but until you try a thing for a while you really don't know. Now I do.

Summary: oh man is this a ton of fun and makes awesome coffee. it is a weekend treat since this is essentially a hand wash item. it's safe for the dishwasher but I can't really figure out how to put it in there.
Summary: this thing is nuts! the trick for us was leaving it on the hot stove for 4 minutes after most of the water moved to the upper chamber. that is the "brewing time". because the water is boiling and its now top heavy, it bounces and rocks in an alarming way. but its fine, that's just how it does.

Summary: Not as durable under sustained use as I'd hoped. Contrary to what you might expect the glass is fine, even over a gas range on high (though minor manufacturing defects might mean that your mileage will vary), but the spring-loaded filter starts letting significant amount of grounds through after a...
Summary: This thing is awesome! I cant tell you how much of a difference there is using this and how much better coffee tastes. You cant make a bad pot with this thing. Not having a filter allows all the oils in the coffee bean to stay in your brew and man is it delicious!
