I use my Bodum coffee press everyday and I also love ice coffee! Imagine my delight when I discovered that Bodum made an ice coffee maker! I had to try it as soon as it arrived. I use one rounded cup of coursely ground coffee and fill with slightly warm water. Then I stir it until all the coffee is wet and begins to develop a creme layer. (I use a wooden skewer to stir - just a habit) Refrigerate for eight hours to overnight. It has a full rich flavor which stands up to the ice. I use a good dark roast bean that I grind myself. If you enjoy ice coffee this is the answer.

Does not work at all. I was skeptical and should not have purchased it. Coffee is totally watered down and tastes disgusting!

This is a great thing to make iced coffee. Easy to use, my only "issue" is I don't know how much coffee water to add. I wish the glass insert had marks as to how much water for scoop of coffee

I liked this and it worked quite well, except there was a mysterious minor leak every time I used it. I decided I must be filling it too full or somehow when I pushed the plunger down a bit so it would fit in the refrigerator, I was causing it to leak. BUT, yesterday as I pushed the plunger down after it had steeped all day, the side blew out! Drenched me with coffee. There must have been a hairline crack in it all along, and it finally gave way after I'd used it about 6-8 times. Thanks to Zappos, there's no worries in returning it. I think I'll try another one and hope that was just a flawed one. The plunger was very hard to push down, so I took one star off for comfort (may have had something to do with the blow out) and overall rating is down one star because I think the glass should be a bit thicker/stronger.

Just what I needed for iced coffee. I make iced coffee every 5-7 days and this makes it easy. I make it it extra strong, let it steep 8 hours or overnight, then pour into a pitcher and refill with water again just to get all the flavor and end up with 1/2 gal pitcher of coffee. I still strain it again with a paper towel because there will be grounds in the coffee. Also, grounds have gotten between the red frame and the glass carafe, which doesn't hurt anything but I didn't rate 5 stars because of that.
