What experts liked
Have been favorably compared to the more expensive french presses.
- BestReviews
If you want the same taste that the Chambord offers for almost half the price, we recommend the Bodum Brazil.
- New York Times Wirecutter
One thing that is very hard to argue with about the Bodum Brazil is the price.
- Know Your Grinder
All parts are dishwasher safe.
- The Spruce Eats
What experts didn't like
Certain pouring angles will introduce grounds into the brew.
- BestReviews
To be honest, this is not what you would call the most “durable” of materials, as it ships at 1.2 pounds and weighs practically nothing.

From The Manufacturer

The BRAZIL French Press coffee maker, designed in the early 80's, was our first coffee maker and quickly became a symbol of what BODUM stands for. Attractive and functional design at an affordable price! The BRAZIL has a heat resistant, borosilicate glass beaker (the standard for all BODUM French press plungers) and a BPA-free polypropylene handle and base, which make the Brazil easy to use and easy to clean. Brewing coffee in the BRAZIL is one of life's great pleasures. It brews an excellent cup of coffee in the greenest way possible, just add coarsely ground coffee powder and hot water, wait 4 minutes and then slowly push down the plunger - done! Environmentally friendly, as no paper filters or plastic capsules are needed. Dishwasher safe. Made in Europe.
