Coffee Presses

Quine Apr 15, 2007 12:07 PM

oops Oh well, I was just washing out our Bodem coffee press and heard a *dink* and sure enough there is a crack in the top edge. And it is not yet a year old. So time for a new one.

Recommendations?

    >>> Recommendations?

    Be more careful next time?

          Someone brought this insulated, stainless-steel Bodum press to
          the ski cabin this past winter and it worked well. The insulation wasn't
          great, but the coffee was the same as you'd get from a glass press:

            Was the insulation better than in the glass press though? I keep waiting for my glass carafe to break so that I can buy a stainless steel one!

              Yes, the insulation is much better than glass. Half an hour
              later, coffee was still warm enough to drink without a trip through
              the microwave. In the meanwhile, you might do better just
              getting a thermos to hold the glass-pressed coffee.

        Quine, you can find a replacement for your broken glass carafe
        and look at many other models at

        Good compay, and they have so much stuff.

          I replace a broken glass carafe for my 12 cup Chambord press pot at Sweetmarias. No need to replace the whole thing.

            TY all. I ordered a new glass from Bodum's. Will be way more careful, but I am a natural klutz.

              Next time order it from Amazon, it's cheaper than getting it directly from Bodum. I also broke my first french press within a year of getting it, but the replacement beaker has lasted a good 3 or 4 years since then..

          We have a Frieling - stainless steel and insulated. We've had it for about 5 years now and couldn't be happier. I especially like that there is no glass carafe to break. It's nice to look at too! :-) We bought ours on Amazon.
