Anyone having a problem with the Bodum site? Everytime I try to check-out, the site crashes.

On the Bodum site it says that this is an 8 cup, 34 fluid ounce, 1 liter French press.

34/8 = 4.25, so unless you drink coffee from a thimble, you may find that this makes less then 8 cups at once.

The site has NO information about the product makeup... such as, any plastic parts? Is the strainer metal?

for people having issues, try creating an account first, login and then try to buy it.

also, you should be logged in when you apply the code. i noticed that i applied the code, then logged in and the code had been removed (7.95 shipping charge appeared). i logged in and then applied the code and the free ground shipping was offered.

Cool thing #1)Ordered this on a Thursday a couple weeks ago and it was in front of my door on Friday.

Cool thing #2) Put water in container (without plunger thingy) and put it in microwave

Cool thing #3) I'm one person and it makes a better "8cup" amount for me than my regular drip pot did. I have about 2 1/2 regular american cups worth.

Cool thing #4) don't care for the supplied coffee glasses for coffee, but they are a nice glass for iced drinks.

Cool thing #5) Worth the $20

I love this press. I use it every chance I get. The wife is a little more impatient than me, but I am a firm believer that this method of coffee brewing is far superior to a drip. Really great deal if you're looking at making the switch from drip to press, I think.

I recently bought one of these at this price, I gotta, say, it's well worth it!

It works great, easy to use, and makes great coffee!

Tastes better than the burnt coffee from a coffee maker, and I think it's easier to clean too.

@thorsteinveblen: In my experience, coffee "cups" (in terms of coffee maker capacity) is usually only 5 ounces. I can't comprehend how they can get away with using a different value for a term already used for a specific amount of volume but that seems to be the norm. But, even if we use cup=5 oz. they are still wrong.

I have a bodum french press and it works great for tea and coffee.

I bought this set last week and I really like it!. The cups are a little unusual for drinking coffee, but the red sleeve keeps it from getting too hot and it makes a cute set sitting on the table together. I've always liked a press for making my coffee and it's good for using loose teas too.

@ddfossett: As someone who has this product to hand, can you tell me where the box says that it's made? Bodum has factories all over, I'm just curious.

@frodohideki: When this deal popped-up two weeks ago, I went through this. It kept telling me that it was declined due to insufficient funds, which I knew wasn't true. Tried three times (had an account) and eventually fraud prevention called me. The guy told me to just grab a pre-paid card somewhere and use that.

Still haven't, but seeing this come up again makes me wanna.

@blyng: Got it to work. It seemed I was actually charged twice and had to call in to cancel the duplicate order.

@thorsteinveblen: The coffee industry standard for measuring the capacity of a coffee maker is 5oz per cup. So 4.25oz per cup is a little small. I’ve read that Braun coffee makers sizes are based on 4.2oz per cup. But at least these guys tell you the actual size up front, which most brands will not do.

@erictreesh: My Krups Moka Brew is the same way: It was billed as an 8 cup coffee pot, but it's really a 6 cup pot. They even show two different meters for the capacity on the carafe. Fairly certain it's a European vs. American thing.

The cup is not a universal measurement. In the US it commonly refers to one half of a US pint, but every country can have its own accepted standard for the term "cup"

Just had to get a new press after my bodum cracked when I poured hot water into it. This is apparently a very common problem judging by amazon reviews I checked out in an attempt to figure out if I could fix it. It also always pressed a little difficult compared to a glass one and consistently left some grounds that I haven't had happen with the new glass one. Just thought I'd share my experience with the product.
