Bodum Shatterproof French Press


| /

When Bodum took over a small clarinet factory in Normandy in 1982, it wasn't because of the fine orchestra clarinets they were producing but because of a relatively unknown coffee maker called the Chambord which they, by coincidence, produced as well.

Bodum combined the skills of these Normandy craftsmen with modern production, and the price of the goods as a result became affordable to many people who loved the taste of coffee brewed in this unique coffee maker, later known as the French press coffee brewer.

Thanks to Bodum, and thanks to the increasing need for better coffee, the French press coffee maker became one of the most popular coffeemakers in the world. The design has not changed a bit from the original drawings, and Bodum still makes the Chambord with the same painstaking care and knowledge learned from those proud craftsmen in windy Normandy.

The Brazil design offers a softer finish with its wrap-around plastic barriers that can help further protect your french press. 

Bodum 'shatter-proof' French Presses are now being manufactured with SAN (Styrene-Acrylonitrile) or PP (Polypropylene), as both plastics are identified as food safe by the FDA. The Chambord French Press in Chrome is available in three size models: 3 cup (0.35L/12oz), 4 cup (0.5L/17oz), and 8 cup (1.0L/34oz).

Double Wall Chambord 8 cup is made of Polycarbonate

Please note: this product is made of plastic, not glass.

It is highly recommended that only plastic filters be used with these.
