Positive Product Points

Easy to use. Great for demonstration purposes. Useful timing feature.

Negative Product Points

The filter should have been designed better. The lid can be difficult to remove. The brewing time is not adjustable. The built-in heating plate is almost impossible to keep clean. The plastic is not as scratch resistant as promised.

Detailed Commentary

I really looked forward to buy this product. I loved that Bodum released a follow-up to the Santos. I bought it the first day it was for sale in Denmark. But I must say that I was disappointed. The brewing time is much shorter than I prefer. The coffee is acceptable, but nothing compared to other vacuum pots. Bodum should consider putting an adjustable brewing time on the unit. This would improve its usability many times. I have used this pot to introduce many people to vacuum brewing, as it can easily be taken anywhere, and the coffee is many times better than traditional drip machine coffee. I do no longer use the pot on a daily basis, it is now included in my collection.
