Always impresses my friends! Always impresses me with its coffee!!!

Negative Product Points

Filter clogs up sometimes, I have to put it back on the stove, ruin the coffee, and send the water back up the pipe to fix. Hard to seperate

Detailed Commentary

I bought this thing after reading about how people loved vacuum Bodums online. I love good coffee, and this makes great coffee.

I did break it early on, when it exploded after the filter got clogged. No injuries <grin>. The place I bought it from, Spaces Kitchen Store, replaced it because it was only a few weeks old.

I now watch the filter making sure it doesn't clog. The coffee from this is very good. My friends love it, and everyone gathers around the stove when I brew a pot. The bottom plastic thing that easily slipps on and off is perfect for bringing the pot to the table after brewing. I make coffee in this every day and I really recommend it if you want a cheap vacuum coffee maker, at least compared to the other prices I have seen.

I paid $75 for this, but it was the delux set with the stove, stands, brush and stuff. The stove is neat, but takes too long to boil the water, so I use my kitchen stove.
