Just bought an Electric santos Bodum $69 marked down from $159 - I know it is poly carbonate compared with the glass of the better ones and it holds only 750ml - apart from that are there any things I should watch out for? I read somewhere that the Electric power means that the bodum could get too hot?
Any tips anyone ?

My rational is that I have had a small Black & Decker Drip machine - in my office for 6 years now and its always made a good cup of coffee, so I reckon that together with my Kenwood Espresso machine, my stove top, my 4 French presses and now this one I should be covered for a few years to come.
