A French press is a simple product, so it's the perfect opportunity to save money! One of the bestselling brands for high-end French presses is Bodum. So we set out to find a perfect, money-saving alternative that lets you make coffee and tea in style - all while saving you money. The winner is called Bruntmor French press. It's an excellent press that's almost identical to Bodum and even offers some extra features (e.g. double walled glass). In fact, both products are an even match. The Bodum and Bruntmor French presses are actually so similar, the question becomes: Can you even tell a difference? The answer is barely, except for the price.
The Bodum French press is a classic product from a well-known brand. This also means, though, that you pay a big-brand price. Because of that hefty price tag we find it hard to recommend it to you since you get virtually the same features from the Bruntmor press - at a low price. However, if you're set on getting the quintessential French press from Bodum, we get it. This is hands-down an excellent, yet expensive, product to own.
The Bruntmor French press is an excellent product. Not only is it very affordable, but it also features essentially the same specs as the pricey Bodum. Moreover, you get double-walled glass which keeps your beverages hot while keeping the French press cold to the touch. It's a great feature to have and lacking in the Bodum brand product. In short, we can recommend the Bruntmor to anybody. It's a great French press at an even better price.
