Are you sure it's a 'Bodum'?....
on 4 May 2012
Before you order this beaker on Amazon from a Market Place seller, consider two things:
A) Are you REALLY going to get a Bodum beaker? I ordered here from one of the Market Place sellers, & they sent me a 'La Cafetiere' glass because they were 'out of stock' of the Bodum glass, & thought it better to send me something different rather than cancel my order (their words, not mine).... Any seller worth their salt should know the Cafetiere glass does NOT fit the Bodum holders (La Cafetiere's beaker is slightly larger in diameter). AND they should've asked me first! Fortunately the Seller refunded me & don't want the beaker back (hence I'm not 'naming & shaming'), so I'm not out of pocket, but... What a waste of time... & glass!
B) I just went to Bodum's website, & the beaker is £14 from them direct, including shipping! I wish I'd checked this out before all the faff with the marketplace seller, hence me sharing my experience with you.
For the record, I use Amazon a lot, & generally everything's great, but not so this time. If it's a Marketplace seller, don't assume they're the cheapest, & be sure to at least check elsewhere before buying.
