The Bialetti Moka celebrates more than 80 years of classic design elegance and technological simplicity. From the early 1950s to the present day, Bialetti has manufactured over 200 million coffee makers.
In particular, the Moka Express has become iconic and has allowed millions of consumers to enjoy great Italian coffee. The Moka produces a rich, authentic espresso in just minutes. The aluminum pot features Bialetti’s distinctive eight-sided shape that allows it to diffuse heat perfectly to enhance the aroma of your coffee.
For the price, it absolutely cannot be beaten when it comes to a good espresso maker. The full pot yielded about six double-shots, so after just one use it has almost paid for itself. You will need to do some experimenting to get the espresso right for your taste, but when you do you will love the quality of the drink.
This stovetop espresso maker does a fine job of brewing espresso, but it does have a few flaws. The gasket does not seem to be operating properly and some water leaks from the reservoir part of the machine when the water is boiling. Also, the top part of the handle that attaches to the body is aluminum so it can get really hot.
It may take a little experimenting to get the perfect cup of espresso for your particular taste.
The espresso maker works fairly fast so you should have a cup of coffee in about 5 minutes.
When it comes to cleaning this espresso maker, never wash it with detergents, just rinse it under the tap.
Also, you should use filtered water and not water that has been chlorinated as you will get a much better tasting espresso.
This is a simple, uncomplicated espresso maker. There really is nothing that can break.
There is no maintenance and no worry about buying an extended warranty.
The good news is that you can reclaim your kitchen countertop for other appliances!
