I seem to be collecting coffee makers recently.
This is my latest indulgence.

Some useful information -

This will produce around 120 - 180ml of coffee.
It seems to be a bit variable but when there is a bit less the coffee tends to be better (the "bitters" come out at the end).

It stands a little under 18cm tall and is about 10cm wide at the base, however only about 9cm of the base is in contact with the hotplate and centre is recessed.

Mine is definitely magnetic and marked with an induction symbol. I don't have an induction hob so can't say any more than that.

Bialetti is an Italian company - but the pot is manufactured in India.

Generally the stainless-steel vessel is well put together and nicely finished; the parts fit closely together. The top and bottom screw easily together. The lid is a simple disk with a little section removed to assist pouring. My lid has a slight but noticeable twist, not functionally significant but a little irritating. The plastic fittings are sturdier than on other Bialetti coffee makers, though still not strong enough to use as grip or lever when tightening the reservoir to the flask.

Parts seem to be a lot easier to come by than for the expensive Alessi coffee makers I have purchased before.

In use the coffee maker burbles and hisses happily when the coffee is made, what more could you want! The coffee is - if not espresso pretty damn good.
The pot pours well and doesn't often dribble.

Note:
If you use the knob on the lid to open the lid and peak at the coffee it will dribble a little hot liquid onto the handle. If you open the lid while brewing it will spit little drops of coffee round your hob.

I have had Bialetti coffee pots for years and they are excellent. This new stainless steel version is far superior. It is easier to clean and nicer to use. It also seems to hold more than my previous 4 cup pot, and realistically fills a good mug for one. I read all the reviews before renewing my old pot and it still made me choose Bialetti and now they make it in stainless steel it does not get the residue in the bottom that the old ones did. Excellent purchase and would definitely recommend it. And it works fantastically on my cast iron range cooker hob.

5 Star....read on to find out why...

Ok, you may have seen mixed reviews for this product and I too saw those when deciding on purchasing this product. I was a little concerned by some comments about leaking sealed and quality build issues as it had been made in the far eastern countries however as I knew this brand well and having already got the larger version knew it was a pretty safe move to go for it as the large version was excellent quality in every way.

When it first arrived, we tried it out and sure enough, it worked ok but the seal was leaking like some customers have said. The seal felt very rough when tightening it and it just seemed nothing like its bigger brother which we already have and would expect better quality from Bialetti. I decided to return it and request a replacement because it should not leak and I knew the build quality should be higher. Also, coming from an Italian home, I expected better than this as we use these every day.

Amazon were as always very helpful and sent a replacement. This is where the amazement started. As soon as it arrived we noticed straightaway that the box itself was different. It looked more professional, photos on the box were in colour etc. where as I remember the old one having more blander artwork and photos in differnet tones of blue. We opened the box up and even the instructions looked better. As for the Espresso maker, it was a different item altogether. The seal itself was silicon not cheap rubber like the first one we received and when tightening the espresso maker, it was super smooth and did not leak one bit. The inside of the espresso maker had a superior finish/coating and the overall finish of the espresso maker was more polished.

So this straight away raised some questions.

I would like to point out to people that the 4 cup cannot be used on the induction hob as the base is not big enough. I purchassed the 4 cup and the 6 cup not from Amazon i admit but the descriptions for these products are the same as where i purchased mine from. The base of the 4 cup has no induction symbol neither has the box so i don't think Bialetti are to blame it's the sites that sell them. I emailed the site where i purchassed mine but they cannot be bothered to answer. the six cup works up to the point where the coffee has nearly all come up then it keeps flashing F. I have since purchassed another 6 cup in another make which has a slightly bigger base and that works perfectly so all you potential buyers of the 4 cup who have a induction hob please beware!

I have had mine for about two month now. Compared with the variety of aluminum ones I have had before it's much more difficult to use.
Firstly, apparently, to stop the scorching of the nicely polished, shiny steel exterior, it is designed to leave much more water at the bottom, as a coolant, even after the coffee has been made. This makes it somewhat difficult to tell, from sound alone, whether it has finished. The sound doesn't change, as it used to with my aluminum ones, and if you are not careful you can end up stewing the coffee; I open the lid to check on its progress now.
Secondly, as others have mentioned, it vents steam from the reservoir holding the finished coffee in only one place, directly onto the handle; no accidents as yet but I approach using the handle with caution. It also drips coffee from the handle, being lazy my cooker has a coffee stain which I periodically wipe clean (this too is mentioned by other reviewers).
Thirdly, I was puzzled at first how the amount of coffee it produces seemed to vary considerably. In an attempt to correct this, I began to monitor the amount of water I use, curiously this didn't affect the outcome, sometimes I would get a very concentrated coffee, and when I came to empty it I found a lot of the water still in the bottom chamber, no matter how long I let it bubble away for. At other times, it seemed that almost all of the water from the bottom had been used and on these occasions it produced a much better coffee. I took to tightening the seal with extra vigor, thinking pressure might be a factor, but this didn't affect the outcome either. After some time I hit upon changing the grind of my beans (I grind the fresh beans each time I make coffee). I found this was the cause of the variability in the quantity of coffee it makes.
