Not perfect, but not bad for the money.

Restorm, Amazon
1 August 2014
  • Summary: If you're very, very careful, this will make a decent espresso. My only two complaints are: 1) It would be a lot more portable without the separate base (just have the heating element inside the bottom of the pot); 2) The little strainer that goes on top of the coffee is VERY flimsy. If you don't put in the perfect amount of coffee (not enough), it bends when the top is screwed on. This allows water to bypass it, which makes weak coffee containing lots of grounds.

Great value and coffee

Bill, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this to use at my office as my old Gaggia espresso machine (of 10 years) had died and wanted to try something different. Have only had for a few days, but the quality of the coffee produced is very good. it is simple to use, and you have great coffee 5 minutes later. Have made both 6 cup and 3 cup capacity with same result. The quality of the machine seems good and I will add to this review once I have used it a while.

Two years and going strong!

LNM, Amazon

  • Summary: We have had this coffee maker for two years now and it is wonderful! Before purchasing we read the reviews and so have been careful not to push against the plastic handle when opening, and we have had no leaks, no problems at all. We recommend the item to friends regularly.

Handy little gadget

Miss KK, Amazon
16 March 2014
  • Summary: It's convenient, since it has an automatic switch off function and I can turn it on and not worry about it getting burnt. The 3 cup/6 cup option is also really nice, but I find myself wondering if I should have just gotten a small stovetop moka for a cheaper price and more suitable for a 3 cup brew.

Filter holes too large

LIttleroot, Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: I ordered wit this the "Lavazza Caffe Espresso Ground Coffee in 8-Ounce Cans" and the grind looks about right but I think the holes in the filter of this espresso maker are too large as I get a lot of grounds/powder in my cup.

I love it - great if you like stovetop coffee

Alec Mclure, Amazon
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Used to use a Bialetti stovetop espresso pot. Loved it - but then things got really busy in the morning (we got a puppy) and a couple of times I let it burn down - ruined the pot. Also, before that I had let the coffee boil too many times - which didn't make for great coffee. I love that I can set this the night before - turn it on when things get busy in the morningand don't have to worry about it burning out if I get distracted and forget it's going.
