This is a great product if you like freshly brewed coffee. I recently picked mine up in my local charity shop, unused and still in its box for the bargain price of £4.50. The version I have is marketed as being able to make 8 cups of coffee, in reality this means that you get 4 mugs or 8 espresso cups of coffee. It currently retails for anyway from £16-30, depending if you are willing to shop around.
The coffee maker comes in three pieces, basically a glass jug made from borosilicate glass, a plunger and filter/lid/plunger, which are all attached and a metal holder for the jug. They are all dishwasher safe, including the nylon filter.
I looked on the Bodum website and you can purchase the jug and other components separately if you smash the jug or the filter needs changing. The jug holds 0.35 litres.
The coffee maker is easy to use, all you have to do is remove the lid and filer, add coarse grained coffee (for the best results) the amount will depend on how strong you like your coffee, I use a tabl spoon per mug, add hot water then push the plunger to the top of the water/coffee level and wait for a while and then push the plunger to the bottom of the jug slowly and then your coffee will be ready to drink.
The plunger has a very smooth action and the lid has a great grid filter to make sure your coffee is very smooth and does not contains lots of coffee grounds, as can happen with other coffee makers I have used in the past.
The whole thing is very easy to clean as the jug comes out of the metal holder and the filter is easily clean with a bit of swishing in hot soapy water.
Overall this is a fab product, it is easy to clean, looks good and produces lovely smooth coffee, any time of day. I would have been happy to pay full price for this item. I definitely recommend to those of you who love a freshly brewed coffee.
Summary: Best coffee maker I have ever used.
