I've been through about 15 Bodum presses over the years. They are cheap and functional, but the glass is so thin that they break easily. The stem that connects the screen to the top also breaks after a few months because the threads are plastic.
But then I ordered a Zzanggu
, and I will never. ever. buy another Bodum. The glass on this Zzanggu unit is twice as thick as a Bodum, it comes with extra screens, it has a copper metal frame that is easy to pull off for washing... this unit absolutely blows away a Bodum in all respects. I highly recommend it!
