Bodum’s french presses have always been of the MOST popular ever among the world. Actually, everything Bodum makes is known to be of the best quality in addition to beautiful and simple design.
So since Bodum happens to have the most popular french presses, and many people seem to have a lot of questions about them, we’re dedicating this post to answering these questions to help you buy the best Bodum french press for you.

How Does a Bodum French Press Work?
French press is by far the easiest and quickest way to brew a cup of coffee. How it works:
When you press the mess filter down, it presses the coffee ground down, stops it from steeping, and brings the coffee up. And that’s it! Watch the following video to see the method in action:
What Sizes Are The Bodum French Press? What Is The Largest Bodum French Press?
Lucky for us, Bodum makes french presses in all sorts of sizes, materials and colors. Bodum’s french presses are usually available in these sizes:
Colors and material of the french press depends on the model/collection of the french press, which will get to in a bit…
Is Bodum French Press Dishwasher Safe/Microwave Safe?
All Bodum french press pots are dishwasher safe. Is it Microwave safe, though? Firstly, I’m not quite sure why you want to microwave a french press. Re-heating coffee that way only leads to terrible tasting brew… now I got that out of the way. The glass beaker of the press can be safely microwaved, you’ll have to take it out of the plastic or metal part of the press. That is not recommended though, it is much easier to simply make another batch of coffee.
Here are the top rated Bodum French Press Pots. We’d recommend you get a 34oz 8-cup pot which allows you to make more or less cups easily in case you’re having coffee on your own or with someone. However, all french press pots you’ll see are available in different sizes.
Bodum Brazil 8-Cup French Press Coffee Maker:
Bodum Columbia 8-Cup Stainless-Steel Thermal Press Pot
Torn between two french presses? Here’s a quick comparison between Bodum and other brands. Actually, we’ll start off by comparing two Bodum models then we’ll get into other brands:
Bodum BRAZIL vs. CHAMBORD French Press:
Bodum French Press vs. Sowden Softbrew:
A comparison between these two is not even valid, as they’re not the same:
Bodum vs Mr Coffee French Press:
The Mr. Coffee press might be cheaper than Bodum’s but you’ll be giving up on a lot of quality. The glass of the Mr Coffee press is not as good or durable as Bodum’s. And many customers have reported that the filter, which doesn’t seem to have a mesh, falls apart rather quickly after a few uses. We certainly do NOT recommend Mr. Coffee’s press just to save a few bucks. The Bodum press, for slightly more, should last you long years without any issues.
Frieling vs Bodum Thermo French Press:
Now this is a truly fair comparison between two similar products. Both are of great quality, here’s what they have in common:
It is a fair competition between these two, they’re also about the same price. I’d prefer the Bodum pot for it’s Twist Shut lid, which is safer. But the design of the Frieling pot makes it great for other uses as a pitcher for milk or juice. However, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend that so flavors don’t mix later on.
