Makes a decent coffee, until the inferior parts it uses break.
on 6 July 2012
This appeared to be a decent cafetiere, but after about 20 or so uses the shoulder nut (which keeps the filter at the bottom of the plunger), started to slide up the plunger, making it unusable. Bodum use a plastic shoulder nut, which gets threaded very easily. If you want to buy a replacement, it costs £4.55 plus £8 (!) shipping direct from Bodum. Tellingly, the replacement is metal. Why not use a metal nut in the first place? I found Bodum themeselves very unhelpful when I challenged them on this and asked for a replacement.
