French Press Review-The Big Bodum

Just popping in. As of 2011, I really do like the Big Bodum. It is worth getting. If you are new to french presses, there will be a few things to get used to, but the flavor is much richer.

Old post below, maybe it will still be helpful. I hope to rewrite it within a reasonable time.


I have had a small french press for years and liked it very well. Due to this, I figured bigger would be better so I can easily share with my husband without having to make one mug at a time. I came across a sale and purchased a 12 cup (4 regular mugs) Bodum french press. My original was Bodum so I wanted to stick to the brand since I liked it very much.

  • Brand: Bodum
  • Model: Chambord
  • Size: 12 cup. 1.5L/51 oz.
