The Bialetti 6-cup espresso maker
I'd been searching and searching for a stainless steel espresso maker! I was excited when I found this one online just before the holidays and it arrived promptly! I appreciate the graceful lines of this Bialetti-6-cup and it brews excellent espresso! I don't go anywhere without it! In fact, I'll most likely purchase a second one specifically designated for travel! Thank you!

Beautiful and Functional Espresso Maker
I have owned the traditional Moka pot for years and wanted to move away from aluminum. The stainless steel Kitty by Bialetti not only brews a delicious espresso, it is also very stylish! Easy to use, easy to clean. Kudos to Bialetti for making a great pot.

Perfect!
I bought one as a gift - so easy to use, clean and delicious coffee - also stainless steel so no harmful material. Thank you!

Works Flawlessly
This Moka pot works flawlessly, and makes delicious espresso. I have had no problems with leaking. The pot can be filled with water just up to the bottom of the little safety valve, but not above it, or you will have leaks. It does leave some water in the pot after it is done making the espresso, to ensure the pot does not get too hot. Following the directions that accompany the pot helps. I use it on an electric burner, starting it on high, then once the coffee starts to bubble up to the upper pot, I turn it to medium-low, until done. Then take it off the heat. When I bought it, it had a sticker on the side saying it would work with induction heat, but have not tried it.

pretty!
What a nice larger version of the two-cup Bialetti i use daily when it's only me at home! This one has the same process and steams quickly and tightly. I bought it for the material -- stainless steel -- as well as for the design.

read that stainless steel espresso pots have better tasting espresso than aluminium
Amy M on Jun 3, 2015
Good Reviews, can't afford the expensive automatic machines so will give this a try!
Donna G on Jun 1, 2015
Good reviews; stainless steel; makes espresso for 6; most of all, because it is so much more environmentally friendly than the kinds that use individual disposable mini-cups.
Joyce G on Apr 12, 2015
Because this is stainless steel and I have heard from friends that the aluminum espresso stovetop makers are not as sturdy, durable, or reliable. In addition, I love the aesthetics of this espresso pot.
DENICE N on Apr 2, 2015
Nice design, stainless steel, good reviews re: flavor and cleaning. We have a Nespresso Citiz. Thought this would be a nice addition, especially with guests. Wanted to see it first, but it's not at my local Sur la Table store or anywhere else in my area. Trusting I'll like it because it's offered on their website.
Barb H on Feb 14, 2015
made of stainless steel; I already have a two-cup one and needed a larger capacity for guests.
Vicki S on Feb 10, 2015
Makes great coffee and looks great.
Fred S on Feb 3, 2015
Stainless steel instead of aluminum, but wish it was bigger
Kristine W on Jan 22, 2015
My new years resolution is to stop drinking bad coffee. I was given an expensive Keurig for Christmas a few years ago and it really does not make good coffee...but I feel bad for not using it (my bf gave it to me) so I've just dealt with it. I read a lot of good Amazon reviews on this little espresso maker so I thought it would give it a try!
Lea B on Jan 7, 2015
I go tired of my aeropress, though it served faithfully, and I loved the updated look of this Bialetti.
Stephanie A on Jan 6, 2015
I love my espresso! However, I recently learned that "aluminum" cooking products are detrimental to one's brain and may contribute to dementia. Therefore, I'm ordering this stainless steel espresso maker. Thank you!
Diane B on Dec 17, 2014
Sounds wonderful, great reviews. It is a gift for my husband.
JONI P on Dec 15, 2014
Already have one, makes the best coffee! Also, needs no filter so is the most efficient coffee maker. This style is sexy, and am giving as a gift.

will this espresso pot work on an induction stove top
A shopper on Nov 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This espresso pot is not induction compatible.
size

how many oz. of water does the bottom hold?
A shopper on Mar 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The bottom holds 16 fl oz.
Has anyone had the problem of leaking even though the top is screwed on tightly? I've had it about 3 years which doesn't seem long enough for the threading to give out.
roberta v on Jan 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have had this problem, too, on occasion. The best solution I have been able to find is not to fill the coffee filter all the way to the top - especially if the coffee is finely ground. If I fill it 3/4 of the way with coffee I do not get the leaking.
Can this be used to make regular coffee (not just espresso?)
A shopper on Feb 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: not really: Espresso is made a certain way, namely, by fast-'pressing' water up through the grounds. That's what this does, so it makes espresso (only)!
I bought the Kitty a few months ago. Worked great until three days ago when the safety valve spouted steam, and the coffee would not go into the
top part. I'm so disappointed. Tell me what I can do?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello-- I've been happy with both this espresso maker as well as a smaller one i've had now for years. With both, i have to be careful not to fill water past the hole (pressure valve) and to check that there are no grains of coffee on the gasket/ring. Also, i find i need to close the espresso maker tightly, not use a very fine grind... and be content, if possible, if all the water doesn't get use and thus less espresso is made than i would have liked.
Hope this helps.
Do you still not carry the replacement gaskets and filters for this pot?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't really know the answer to this question; Sur La Table should be able to answer this itself, i would think, but... I don;t know where the querier is located, but a few years ago i went to Cafe Trieste in the Bay Area to purchase replacement gaskets... Maybe other coffee-supply shops would carry them too.
I have used this for 3 weeks and now the steam is leaking out between the top,, where you screw it on.. and there are no instructions on how to put in a new filter plate.. also it shouldn't need a new filter plate this soon, but it seems loose.. I would like some feedback.. Ionly use for morning cup.. and am not sure why it is leaking and I need filter plate intallation instructions????
A shopper on Aug 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi-- try two things: fill with water only to slightly below the valve spot level and screw the top and bottom sections together quite tightly, especially the first few times you use the Bialetti.
Here's to some great espresso!
