Bodum EILEEN 8-Cup French Press Coffee Maker
Someone is complaining above that the glass beaker is not made of Pyrex and cannot have boiling water or metal utensils in it. No Bodum glass beakers are ever made of Pyrex. And since you add boiling water to it, I am not sure where that complaint is coming from. Maybe the fact that you cannot boil water in it directly on the stove? Again, this is not part of the Bodum concept for any of their coffee presses. Nor is it wise to use metal utensils in any Bodum glass beaker. The point of this product is that the metal holder protects the beaker from breakage in a nice way. And it is a lot nicer than the plastic Bodum designs. I can say from two years of experience using one of these that this is a great product. I am ordering one right now because my housemate, who owns our Eileen, is moving out, so I need one of my own. If you want to make coffee on the stove and use metal utensils in the container, try one of those aluminum espresso things that screw together. This is not it, but it is not supposed to be.

I was a bit disappointed that the glass is not Pyrex, and that you have to be careful not to use metal utensils or boiling water in the Bodum Eileen French Press. It does make great coffee according to the person who received the gift, though.

My drip coffee maker conked out and since I'm the only one in our house who drinks coffee regularly I decided to switch to a coffee press because I had heard it made a superior cup of coffee compared to a drip coffeemaker. Well, it's true. I didn't know coffee could taste so good. The first time I used my coffee press there was a lot of sludge/coffee grounds getting in the coffee and after doing a bit of research online I learned it was because of my blade coffee grinder not making a consistent grind - even though I tried to make it coarse it would also make some finer and the finer dust wasn't being filtered through the press. So then I researched ceramic burr coffee grinders which produce a more consistent grind (coarse for the french press). But burr grinders can run upwards of a lot and more. The cheapest were a moderate price and didn't have very good reviews. Then I found the Hario Manual Ceramic burr Coffee grinder for less and figured what the heck I'd give it a shot. That thing works beautifully. It takes 3 or 4 minutes of spinning the handle to grind enough coffee for the french press but I do it while the water is heating. Its easy to the point of almost effortless. I've been using it for about a month and it still works as great as it did the first day. And now I can also properly grind coffee for my espresso machine too. The Hario grinder can be adjusted down to grind fine "Turkish" coffee on up to coarse for a French Press. Using the burr grinder which sort of scrapes and crushes the beans (vs. a blade grinder that cuts them at high speeds) also makes the coffee taste better. I bought the Bodum 12 cup French Press which actually holds 4 cups of water/coffee. I get about 2 large "cups" of coffee out of it. It does start to cool pretty rapidly, but I drink it all within an hour. Any longer than that and you'll want to pour it into a thermos or something. I'm concerned about breaking the glass, so looked into buying a replacement. But it costs almost as much as buying a whole new press. Maybe I'll just buy a back-up press one of these days, because as we all know, no matter how careful you think you are, accidents can happen and I don't want to be without my fantastic coffee - ever. The only reasons I gave the press 4 instead of 5 stars is that the replacement parts seem a bit too pricey and I wish I could get a bigger one. I've looked around but haven't seen any bigger than the 12 cup, so if I have company over I'm going to be making and re-making coffee continually to keep up with the demand. A bigger one would be nice.
