Synopsis: Make great tasting coffee with the Bodum French Press. Step by Step instructions as indicated in the user manual.
User Instructions for Bodum French Presses
 


1. Place pot on a dry, flat, non-slip surface. Hold handle firmly, then pull the plunger unit straight up and out of the pot.

2. For each 1.25 dl, 4 oz cup, put 1 rounded tablespoon or 1 BODUM scoop of coarse ground coffee into the pot. CAUTION: Use only coarse ground coffee. Fine grind can clog the filter and create high pressure. Place coffee maker on a heat proof, non-slip surface.

3. Pour hot (not boiling) water into the pot. Leave a minimum of 2.5 cm, 1 inch of space at the top. Stir the brew with a plastic spoon. CAUTION: Metal spoons can scratch or chip the glass beaker and cause breakage.

4. Place the plunger unit on top of the pot. Turn the lid to close off the pour spout opening (does not apply to the Brazil models). Do not press down. Let the coffee brew for at least 4 minutes.

5. Hold the pot handle firmly with the spout turned away from you, then using just the weight of your hand, apply slight pressure on top of the knob to lower the plunger straight down into the pot. Lowering the plunger slowly with minimal pressure produces best results. If the filter clogs or it becomes difficult to push down the plunger you should remove the plunger from the pot, stir the brew and then slowly plunge again. WARNING: Using excessive force can cause scalding liquid to shoot out of the pot.

6. Turn the lid to open the pour spout and then pour coffee.

7. Unscrew the filter assembly and clean the plunger unit after each use. All parts are dishwasher safe.

8. Scald Hazard:
Excessive plunging force can cause scalding hot liquid to shoot out of pot.
Do not plunge with force.
Turn lid to close spout.
Use only coarse ground coffee.

Safety Instructions:
Not for stove top use.
Check glass beaker for scratches, cracks or chips. Do not use a pot which is scratched, chipped or cracked. Install a replacement beaker before using the pot again.
Keep children away while using. Hot water is a hazard to small children!
Do not allow children to use this coffee maker.

Thank you so much for your instructions. My mistress was sick of drinking coffee grounds. Coarse ground only, got it! Although a really fine grind can lend a Turkish coffee vibe.

Does anyone know how to remove the glass pitcher part of the french press? The glass broke on mine, but I think I can buy just a replacement one and keep the other parts. But I can't seem to get it unstuck from the base. Thanks!

Hi Jo,

Though we are not Bodum and have no say in any manufacturer's packaging or instructions, we appreciate the feedback and are glad you are enjoying this fantastic brewer. We will have to write our own additional text on this page some time soon to at least be able to help the customers who find their way here.

Sincerely,
Espresso Planet

Hello Bodum - the Instructions in the stainless steel coffee plunger I bought today, only refer to the glass version. Whilst I am fully aware of how to use a plunger coffee maker, first time users may find themselves confused. I suggest you ensure instructions for the stainless steel model are enclosed in the packaging. That said, I love the style and design! Many thanks, Jo
