Lin Phillips (quality: 8.8) 01.20.2002 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: This a good introduction to vacuum brewing for neophytes who are intimidated by the more traditional alcohol fueled apparatus.
Tarik Ghbeish (quality: 8.8) 04.22.2002 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: For good or ill, this makes a pretty good pot of coffee and despite fears, it has performed well for me under light and heavy use.
Michael Harmon (quality: 8.5) 06.20.2004 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: One man's quest to a hassle-free cleaning of the Bodum vac pot.
Karl Keyes (quality: 8.5) 10.05.2005 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: I'd buy it again, but think Bodum should seriously think about re-designing the length of the dip tube.  It definitely works better with that 1/4" removed.
Jim Pellegrini (quality: 8.3) 02.08.2002 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Good first vac pot, provided you can use or stand to throw away the massive quantities it produces.
Damian Smith (quality: 8.3) 11.28.2003 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: Makes a great cup of coffee! Worth the money! Easier than French Press! Fun to watch!
Bongo BCBeanBoy (quality: 8.0) 12.24.2001 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Try the Nirvana Utopia Buckmeister Barista Vacuumer Pretentious Name Mark One, you‘ll like it.
Robert Cantor (quality: 7.8) 12.23.2001 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: makes the best tasting coffee of any brewer and the easiest vac pot to use.  Get it!

Howard Sheppard (quality: 7.7) 07.08.2002 Rating: 8.2

David Greene (quality: 7.5) 09.19.2002 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: You won't regret this purchase.
Chris Staley (quality: 7.5) 11.19.2008 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: A good quality daily use vac pot with several quirks - get around them, and you'll be happy
Eric Evans (quality: 7.3) 05.10.2001 Rating: 4.4
Bottom Line: Great idea but design needs an overhaul. Poor reliability, especially considering the price of $169.00
Irene and Lubos Palounek (quality: 7.3) 08.07.2001 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Makes excellent coffee. This unit and a good espresso machine (and freshly roasted beans and a conical burr mill) is all a coffee lover needs.
Stewart Bryant (quality: 7.3) 12.05.2003 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Coffee that is hot, regret it you will not, much better than a drip, and you will love the trip!
