READ FIRST. Only buy 6 cup model.So a lot of people who bought this complained about the quality and discoloration of the aluminum, unfortunately these claims are valid but only on certain models and heres why.The models which brew 3 and 9 cups are not made in Italy, this is where the quality of the Moka Pot decreases and you are left with an inferior product which causes all the problems down the road.In the photo I provided you will notice that the model which brews 6 cups has a badge on the front of the box stating "made in italy" and the others do not. I've bought all the other models which brew more or less than 6 cups and noticed they did not have it. After several uses the ones that brew 3 and 9 cups deteriorated and had issues.So in short, only buy the one that brews 6 cups since that one is actually made in italy and well built. Hope this helps. Took me a while to figure this out. 3I love love love itIf I could give this more than 5 stars I would. I love espresso drinks from coffee shops, I used to drink just regular coffee but when I quit smoking the taste changed just enough that I didn't like it anymore. Mexican mochas on the other hand I still found palatable. But they're about 5 bucks a pop at my local coffee shop. I also didn't want to spend 150$+ on an espresso machine, they seem prone to breaking and judging by the reviews never really work right. So I settled on this, figuring I would try it and if it didn't make what I wanted I'd only be out about 30 bucks.It makes delicious coffee. Put some full city roast in their and fire it up and what comes out is espresso. From my readings I've gathered that its not actually espresso, as the Moka pot doesn't make enough pressure for it to be real espresso. But its playing the part convincingly, I can't tell the difference between what comes out of this and a shot of espresso. Its paid for itself a dozen times over at this point. Absolutely one of the best purchases I've ever made. I couldn't be happier.Pros- Excellent coffee- Cheaper than buying espresso from coffee shops- Tastes like coffee from espresso shopsCons- A bit time consuming (although I've grown to like the ritual of it)- Can be a bit finnicky to get the coffee to brew right- Time consuming to do a deep clean (a quick rinse is usually enough though)If you're on the fence, buy it. You won't regret it. 5Coffee maker smells terrible and every pot burns.When I got my Bialetti 6 cup pot, it had an extremely powerful chemical smell. I believe the chemical smell is from the manufacturing processes but that is something that should be taken care of prior to selling it to consumers. The instructions tell you that you need to clean it and make a few pots of coffee, which are then thrown out, before you make a pot that you drink. I did this and the chemical taste/smell did not go away. I really wanted this product to work for me so I did some research online and found that if you clean the pot in a vinegar solution then allow it to sit in the vinegar solution for 30 minutes it takes the smell away. I tried that and it worked...sort of. The vinegar solution took all of the smell out of the metal parts but the rubber gasket still had a strong chemical smell. Again I really wanted this to work for me so I bought a new rubber gasket. I was relieved when I got the new gasket and it did not smell of anything. I was now free to make my coffee. Pot after pot resulted in the same burned coffee taste. I tried pre-boiling the water so the pot didn't sit on the stove as long, different ground coarseness, wetting the grounds, lower stovetop temperatures, higher stovetop temperatures. It doesn't matter, every pot is burnt. Not happy with this product at all. 1Coffee it makes is good if you don't mind aluminum flakes and particles in itWhen I first began using the Moka pot, the finished coffee had some small aluminum particles floating in it (smaller than a grain of sand). I thought this was just because it came from the factory and the Moka pot needed to be broken in. However, after I rinsed and dried the pot after use, I found that there were large flaking pieces of Aluminum coming from the inside of the top half of the pot (see picture near the right side of the hole edge). Underneath these flaking pieces, the material appears to be raw aluminum, which I do not want to come into contact with coffee that I planned to drink.I am disappointed that this happened, because the coffee that it made was actually quite good when brewed correctly. I will not purchase another unless I am able to inspect it myself before purchase (for example going to a store to look; I will not purchase this online). 1disappointed in a brand I used to loveI lived in Europe for 12 years and used this pot every morning before my run to make perfect espresso. Unfortunately my original pot was lost in the move back to the states and the new one I bought from Amazon was not at all the same. The coffee has a metallic taste and the pot has not been able to stop shedding a residue that not only tastes awful but coats my fingers when handling it. you can see the dark material on one of the photos as it stained my finger. Not sure whats up but suspect a knockoff or material change. As you can see this item does not have the Bialetti logo or configuration. 2My number 1 method for making coffeeLove my Bialetti !This is my preferred method of making coffee these days and it is great with milk, added water or straight up. Here are some tips after using it for a few months.1 - Use cold water, don't take a short cut with warmer water.2 - Small flame is best, take your time.3 - Grind the coffee slightly coarser than an espresso grind. Too coarse and the water will pass through too quickly. Use freshly ground beans. (A ceramic burr hand grinder is cheap and works great)4 - Tamping - definitely do not tamp with 30 pounds of pressure and a twist...but do pack it in a bit with your thumb or the palm of your hand. The trick is to achieve an oozing of the coffee through the top, not a gushing flow. Experiment but be careful not to tamp too hard. The grind also plays a factor here.5 - keep lid open while brewing. This way you can monitor the process (set a timer for 5-6 minutes or just stick around)and see when coffee is ready.6 - Enjoy. You have just made amazing coffee! 5Don't bother with a generic, spend the extra few dollars Having purchased, or received as gifts, several moka pots over the years, I finally bought a Bialetti. Seeing them in "mart" stores they were always overpriced, but the price here on Amazon was perfect. I was also able to get a genuine Italian one and not some outsourced version. After doing some reading, genuine Bialetti is made in Italy...nowhere else. The "three-cup" version is perfect as my daily morning dose.Regarding function, when compared to others I have owned. The handle is sturdier, this was the reason for replacing my older one which had the handle break off. The handle on this model is longer towards the body and made of a different composite. My old one lasted about 2-years and the handle just fell off one morning while preparing coffee. Just glad it wasn't full of hot coffee!The pour is smooth, no slow pouring off an inferior molded lip. Since I drink 3-shots every morning, I don't want to sit and pour slowly like I am filling demitasse cups. My older one's pour spout looked exactly the same, but if you pour too fast it would run down the side.No leaking on back hinge. Older generic one leaked on the back once the coffee boiled up. This one does not and the lid actually has a "snap" like closure when pushed down. Not loose, a very secure lid.The weight of this one is a bit less than my older non-Bialetti, but it is still just as durable. My older one would leave about 1oz or more of water in the base after each brew, and this caused pitting/buildup even though I used filtered water. The Bialetti probably has about 1/4oz of water left in the bottom, meaning more is being pushed up into the basket. Regarding the basket, one of my pots baskets were so thin it actually bent when tamping out the grounds! The Bialetti basket it stamped "made in Italy" and very sturdy. Nice to see Country pride!Overall - after having several stainless and generic (similar in style) pots, I like the fact that Bialetti sells parts. Replacement gaskets and handles are available on Amazon and direct from Bialetti, allowing me to repair the pot instead of replacing it. The gasket is the biggest bonus, as most gaskets don't last over two years and finding an exact match for a generic pot was impossible.Coffee - I find Lavazza, Bustello and La Llave to be good in these pots. When you first get your pot just run a couple pots through of any generic coffee - don't' wash the pot! This allows it to get cleaned via boiling coffee and "seasons" the pot. Never wash the inside of the pot, seasoning helps to obtain the best possible cup.Brew - When you are ready to make your first pot fill the water to the line, which is just below the pressure purge valve. Bottled or filtered water is best. Then fill the coffee basket with grounds, don't pack them in, just heap it on top then use the straight edge of a spoon or scoop to level off the top. Then tap the basket bottom on the counter twice to get the grounds to settle. Do not tamp the grounds as you would do in an espresso machine!!! Drop the basket into the base, screw the top on until it's a bit over snug, then place on heat. I brew mine on the lowest heat possible, it will eventually boil due to the confined environment and I don't have to worry about a poor cup. If you heat it with high heat, the water will boil too fast and cause a rush through the grounds leading to a weaker cup or a "burnt" taste as the water was too hot. Moka pots take time to brew, but well worth the wait. 5How to make a great coffee!I purchased the 6-Cup Bialetti Espresso maker. I found that the 3 cup Bialetti Espresso maker I purchased several months ago was too small. The 6 cup maker brews two mugs of coffee which is about 10 ounces each (I dilute the espresso to make coffee "Americano") or 12oz of espresso. I add some cream or milk to get the perfect cup of coffee. The coffee maker is easy to use as follows:1) Rinse it out with plain water before the first use and after each subsequent use. DO NOT ever put it in the dishwasher! It will cause the aluminum to turn gray.2) Make a weak brew of coffee and discard. This will "season" the brewer.3) Fill the filter with ground coffee and level off, do not tamp it down.4) Fill the reservoir with cold tap water and put the filter in. Then just screw on the upper half and put it on the stove.5) Use a medium to low heat (do not use high heat as it may burn the handle, damage the rubber seal and the high heat would produce a less than desirable coffee) under the brewer and close the lid. It will take about 6 to 8 minutes for the water to begin to boil.6) When the water in the reservoir starts to boil the steam will propel it up through the ground coffee and into the upper reservoir. There will be a gurgling sound. Turn the heat down to low and wait for the water to fill the upper reservoir.7) When the sound gets loud it means the bottom reservoir is empty and then turn off the heat. Can also check this by carefully opening the top and watching for when the top reservoir is full.8) Be carful pouring the coffee - it is really hot! Enjoy!I have found that just about any medium ground quality coffee will make good coffee in this pot. Just be sure the beans are fresh.The machine should be rinsed with plain water after each use (I use a paper towel to wipe it down). No need to use soap and never put it in the dishwasher. The only part of the brewer that may need replacing is the rubber gasket. Other than that, this is an easy to use brewer that requires minimal maintenance. 5***BEWARE!!! I received a FAKE one!!!***Words alone can not describe how disappointed I am with this product (so yay, congratulations! You left me no choice but to write my first amazon review!). I was so so so soooooo excited to use this to make my own espresso but the minute I opened the package and started observing the product, I realized that this may not be a real Bialetti. The first big giveaway was the product stamp on the bottom where it s supposed to say..idk, fully spelled out words and a complete logo?! So I started Googling, went to official website, looked at everyone else pictures, and I am heartbroken to say that what I received is not a real one. The top lid s emboss isn t identical to the real ones. The quality is horrible, itty bitty sand-like metal pieces are falling out, the cut isn t smooth, very rough, and had scratches. I m just sad. Definitely returning this and going to get it from the official website or William Sonoma where I can actually trust.UPDATE: I found one more reason why I believe this is fake. The made in Italy text is a different text from the one shown in the box. The font shown in print is a lot thinner and more sophisticated looking than the one printed on the actual product. 1Steel + Aluminum combination caused corrosion almost immediatelyI used it for 2 weeks and followed the directions but it quickly corroded. I have a family member in the metal treatment business and he said the following of this product:"We looked at it under 10-30x magnification and the whole inside is covered with corrosion pits - little crevices, holes, and fissures that will hold onto bacteria. I would advise you not to use this again...There is a stainless steel stud and nut going right through the side of the little aluminum carafe, so that is a classic set up for what is called galvanic corrosion." 1
