Many of the people who purchase a Bodum Chambord French press know that they’re paying somewhat more for that French press, compared to other similarly sized models. That said, the extra amount that is paid isn’t an issue because they end up with a product that uses sturdy and premium materials, that has a classy finish and that is designed to last. Since the Chambord is somewhat pricey, it makes sense to take the necessary steps to ensure that it will last a long time. This is one reason it is important to confirm whether this particular product is, in fact, dishwasher safe.
The short answer to this question is that, yes, the Bodum Chambord French press can be used in the dishwasher. See this popular review by Aaron Contorer for more on putting this press in the dishwasher.
This applies to all the parts of this product. This is a big deal because it makes it much more convenient to properly maintain and clean this French press. You’re not forced to wash certain parts by hand.
To go into greater detail, the Chambord is a product whose parts are made of various materials. The transparent portions of this French press are made of borosilicate glass. The advantages of this kind of glass are that it is quite strong and it can handle swings in temperature quite well. Because of these characteristics, you don’t have to worry about the glass on the Chambord becoming translucent, unclear or otherwise discolored over time. The glass will hold up well to constant use, and this also applies to regular cycles in the dishwasher.
Other parts of the Bodum Chambord are made of stainless steel. Just like the glass, the steel is also a very strong material. Steel is used for the body of the French press. It is also used for other parts such as the coffee filter. Again, the stainless steel will be alright to clean in the dishwasher.
Some of the other parts of the Chambord, such as the handle, are made of polypropylene. This plastic is another very sturdy material. It will not deform or change in shape, even after constant use and exposure to temperature swings. The polypropylene surface is also fairly impervious to water, and is BPA free. Like the other materials mentioned above, these plastic portions of the Chambord are also safe to place and clean in a dishwasher.
The takeaway from all this is that the Bodum Chambord is a product which doesn’t just focus on providing a good coffee preparation experience. It has also been designed and constructed in such a way that even the more mundane aspects of owning it, such as cleaning the product, still offer a pleasant and convenient experience.
Since all the parts of this French press are dishwasher safe, you don’t have to identify which parts to put in the dishwasher, and which ones to clean in some other way. After you have disassembled the French press, you can put all the parts in the same dishwasher, and not have to worry about this causing any problems. For some people who are considering the Chambord, this added convenience is something that they should also take into consideration.
