Positive Product Points

Low cost french press. Quality construction for the price. Can be placed in a microwave to heat the water.

Negative Product Points

This model does not have any metal/chrome parts except for the plunger. This may or may not be a problem.

Detailed Commentary

The Bodum Brazil line of french presses are an inexpensive way to experience this type of brewing method. Alot can be said about the french press, it surely does produce an excellent cup of coffee if fresh beans and water of sufficient temperature (approx 195-205 deg) are used. The instructions that come with the brewer say to use a coarse grind, but coarse compared to what? I have found that an even drip grind works fine, no more sediment than using a gold filter with an auto drip machine. The plunger and filter apparatus look to be of the same quality as Bodum's higher priced models (such as Chambord). The stock filter system does a decent job of eliminating sludge, but again an even grind is necessary. Do not try using a whirley-blade grinder for this brewer.

Since this brewer does not have any metal parts surrounding the glass it can be placed in the microwave to heat the water. I prefer to use an electric kettle for this.

Buying Experience

No problems purchasing from Target.
