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.

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!
January 9, 2015
I bought one as a gift - so easy to use, clean and delicious coffee - also stainless steel so no harmful material. Thank you!
May 10, 2015
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.

I like to use this for travel. I little bigger capacity would be nice, but I prefer the Stainless Steel versus the Aluminum Bialetti.

Replacing aluminum Bialetti
CONNIE P on May 21, 2017
I have a older version and just wanted to upgrade. Was very satisfied with the old one so decided to stick with Bialetti.
TAMMIE M on May 21, 2017
The state of my beloved Bialetti Moka required an upgrade. This looked like a nice upgrade and hopefully I won't melt the handle on this one.
KYRA J C on Mar 2, 2017
I wanted to try this because of the smooth shape, quality and handle. It seems like the handle is far enough away from the body of the pot that you won't get a steam burn when taking it off the burner, like I usually do with the Moka Express. Looks elegant too.
Amelia H on Feb 24, 2017
Birthday gift for my husband who loves the idea of a stainless steel espresso maker.

I have an induction range. While the older aluminum Bialetti works well, I'd rather not need the induction disc to make expresso.

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
stainless steel!

will this espresso pot work on an induction stove top
A shopper on Nov 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will.

how many oz. of water does the bottom hold?
A shopper on Mar 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The bottom holds 16 fl oz.
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)!
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.
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.
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!
What kind of coffee do you recommend?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We use Bustelo Espresso ground coffee.
It's perfect. Love the pot.
Where is the Bialetti Espresso maker
A shopper on Oct 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's made in Italy.
Will this work with induction?
Lisa O on Sep 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yes it will work as long as you have a very small burner to set it on
Does the stainless steel bialetti come in a 1 or 2 cup size?
A shopper on Sep 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This Bialetti makes about 1 1/2 mugs of coffee. When they say 6 cup, they are talking about tiny espresso cups which aren't 8 oz. I love, love, love my Bialetti. I've owned about 4 over 25 years and purchased them for everyone I know. It makes the best coffee on the planet. I grind the coffee at the store "fine". I put 1 heaping, and one flat T of coffee into the thing on the bottom. It makes the perfect large mug of coffee. I also heat some milk and make it an au lait. Bialetti does make smaller espresso makers if that's what you're interested in.
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.
Where do you find replacement gaskets and filter for the Bialetti Kitty 6 cup Espresso maker? Thank you
A shopper on Jul 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We only carry these replacements for the Moka Express Espresso. I would advise you contact the manufacturer directly for replacements for your product.
