To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First of all, this product is more beautiful in person than it looks in the images. It really blew me away how aesthetically pleasing it was when I saw it for the first time. Apart from that, it functions as it should and filters coarse ground coffee with no issues. The only thing to take note of is to be careful when pouring out coffee or when washing as the glass portion of the french press is removable from the metal body. Also common sense stuff like letting it cool down before washing with cold water to avoid cracking of the glass. Best to hold on to the lid while pouring out coffee to eliminate the risk of the glass decanter sliding out of the metal frame and cracking/causing scalding due to the hot liquid.
Bodum makes awesome coffee makers. I had no qualms about buying from this brand again. My only little small niggle is how easily the beaker (carafe) slides out from the frame, but I suppose that's to prevent any grass cracking from thermal expansion.
The solution is to keep a thumb on the lid when pouring out lovely coffee just to avoid any surprises.
