Re. press pot breakage

Postby wil » Mon Nov 20, 2006 7:14 pm

Hi
I can certainly recommend the Bodum Columbia press pot, as pictured in a latter post.
I'm using the 1.5ltr model currently.
Not only is it very durable and handsome, but I'm impressed with the mesh filter. It's Bodum's "polyfilter" and is a doddle to keep clean as it's an all in one design. No unscrewing and cleaning individual parts.

If you are interested, Id research carefully on the 'net' as I have noticed a vast array of prices for this model.

Regards
Wil

gargar? New Zealand? What am I missing here?

Anyway, those Freud things do look nice - but £50 for a cafetiere...

Gargar is not yet in New Zealand. Gargar is still making the streets of London safe (or unsafe according to which side of the street you are presently standing on).

Jon, don't worry because you don't know about Gargar. Be happy. Or you can learn as much about Gargar as anyone knows by reading this and this, but you may not want to waste your time. :roll:
