Detailed Commentary

I have been using French Press Coffee makers for the past three years.  Previously, I had a Bodum Chambord (Nice quality made coffeemaker, but the glass is prone to falling out and breaking in the sink); and my current Bonjour (Purchased this as a backup because of it's low price); which I am using as a primary.  I purchased the brazil because I needed a backup to my Bonjour and because I wanted to try the new cool orange translucent color design.  Turns out it was a bad move.  This Bodum model is probably the absolute worst French press I have ever used.  The construction is very cheap looking and the plunger if very thin and flimsy.  It often leaks when pouring, and cleaning is a bit difficult if you leave it in the sink because coffee grinds get stuck under the glass, and you can see them through the cheap plastic translucent orange frame.  I always thought Bodum was the gold standard for French Press coffeemakers, but in my experience, the cheaper priced Bonjour is the best I have ever had.
