Chambord is a true original – the classic Plunger coffee maker designed in the fifties. Bodum still produce it with the same painstaking craftsmanship they used way back with the original. The frame and lid, made of steel, undergo several chrome plating processes to obtain a durable shiny surface that will last for many years of intense use. The only difference in the production process since the fifties is Bodum’s commitment to the highest standards of environmentally correct manufacturing, which is especially important during the chrome plating process. The black Chambord Polypropylene handle comes in a matte finish that not only gives a comfortable grip while serving but adds to the classic quality of the design. The Plunger (also known as a French Press) system has always been a great simple way of brewing your cup of coffee.
