I'll stick with my traditional glass press for now.

Negative Product Points
The poor lid material quality would probably melt in the dishwasher. Also, the method by which the lid is secured to the pot is awkward at best. One-piece screen construction is difficult to get clean easily. Plastic is not my favorite taste in my cup of coffee. The rubber gasket can cause stuttering when pressed, allowing mud to pass into the coffee.
I purchased this item based on this review. First off I agree whole-heartedly about the problem with the lid, although I wouldn't call it minor. Secondly, cleaning the press is not as simple as stated, due to the fact that the screen is all one piece. Even after intense rinsing much debris remains. Also I wouldn't trust the presses thin plastic lid not to warp or melt in the dishwasher. Additionally, I found that this press's screen doesn't seal as tightly as a standard press due to the rubber gasket edge (no way to bend the screen open for a better seal). This gasket also causes the plunger to stick and stutter as it is pressed, resulting in more small sediment (mud) in the cup. Lastly, I personally dislike using plastic containers for beverage preparation, especially hot beverages. I find plastic alters the taste. Would you drink your favorite hot coffee from a cheap plastic mug? Then why would you prepare it in plastic? My suggestion? Use a good standard glass press and make smaller pots more frequently if you want your coffee to stay hot all day. Remember, just because coffee is kept warm doesn't mean it's kept fresh.
I had problems ordering from Bodum on line due to their malfunctioning server. Finally, after 3 days of attempts, my order went through.
