For the most part, the Bodum Chambord functions just like any other French press. But there’s just something about how each component of this product comes together, to produce such a delightful coffee taste, one that is not too bitter and not too sweet. To get a better picture of how it all works so well, let’s go over the product piece by piece, and from top to bottom.

First there’s the plunger. The plunger is made from stainless steel, which helps it last longer and prevent any corrosion that could potentially affect the brew’s flavor. When the recommended brewing time is met, usually around 4 minutes, the plunger is simply pushed down. Burns is also prevented thanks to its heat-resistant knob.

Next comes the safety lid. The one found in this Bodum french press has a close and open safety position, so splashes and spills are never an issue. After the safety lid, there’s the spiral plate, which is responsible for keeping the filter mesh in place and minimize any by-pass of coffee grounds. This results in a more refined brew, while also getting the most out of the coffee bean’s flavor.

As for the mesh, it serves as a divider between the coffee grounds and the water, and separates the two after the brewing is done. What holds this fundamental part of the main object is the cross plate. And together with the spiral plate, all these three components make up the product’s innovative 3-part stainless steel filter system- a system that is integral to Bodum’s success.

Now on to the body of the Chambord french press. Just as mentioned above, the glass beaker of this Bodum is made from borosilicate glass. This type of glass material is ultra-light, yet strong at the same time. It’s also highly resistant to heat and is dishwasher-friendly.

Finally, what secures the body is the metal frame, along with a handle. And it’s not just any ordinary steel frame either, it is made of chrome-plated, durable stainless steel, which protect the glass beaker from potential cracks and scratches. As for the handle, its heat-resistant plastic material prevents you from unintentionally getting singed.
