My old Chambord finally gave out, and I thought I was getting an identical replacement. I probably would have bought it anyway, but I do like this one less well for a couple of reasons.First, I find the locking top to be very fiddly. I also liked the old model’s metal frame, so that I could put it on the warming burner on our stove and keep it warm for a while. On this one I would be afraid of melting the plastic. Aside from those things, it still works to make a pretty good batch of coffee.
