This model is for induction hobs. It's quick to make your morning hit of caffeine and it's easy to clean it. Have tried making coffee at very low heat and at medium heat and at medium-high heat and it doesn't seem to make any difference to the end result which method I use. The only thing to ensure is that you don't leave it on the hob after the water has been used as you could get some coffee grounds in the prepared coffee. It is well designed and the water container is raised in the centre of the base, which leaves a moat-like area round the outside which retains a little water, thus helping to prevent you burning the base because the water has gone.

The product is great - quick, strong (except the handle, which shouldn't break if used properly), easy to clean and makes great coffee. Here's my tips on getting the best results -
- Warm the base before adding water
- Use boiling water in the bottom
- Keep the lid down while brewing
- Clean without soap

I have found using cold water and not heating the base first means the water spends a long time getting hot - this entire time the water is mixing with the coffee and taking flavour - I personally find the coffee taste bitter and overdone using this method, by using already boiling water, and pre-warming the base for a few seconds, you not only get your coffee much faster (about 1 minute compared with 4 or 5 minutes), but the flavour is perfect. If you think about a proper espresso machine - it forces water through the coffee in around 20 - 25 seconds, by pre-boiling the water you are getting as close to this as you can - leaving it to heat up while mixing with the coffee is more like using this device as a cafetiere.
Keeping the lid down stops a large portion of coffee evaporating as it comes up, I have found the flavour is better as less concentrated.
I have also found using soap to clean this device detracts from the flavour of the coffee, no matter how well you rinse it after. So I just rinse it with water and no soap.

It's down to everyone's individual tastes, but this is how I use mine to get the best flavour out of my coffee.

The Bialetti stainless steel espresso stove top coffee makers are excellent quality - I also own a 4 cup in Australia. I would never use an aluminium one because I've seen how the internal stems gradually dissolve over time...into your coffee! I purchased this larger one for an extended stay with family in the UK. I was worried about this being able to work on an ordinary electric stove top as I have gas in Australia, but have discovered that it works fine. I've been using stove top coffee makers for years and have developed a 'method' for the coffee we like (I make strong coffee to which I add hot milk latte style). Bialetti advises putting the coffee in the funnel without pressing it down (tamping) but I have found that if you want a strong, rich brew tamping the coffee lightly helps. Use coffee that is roasted and ground specifically for espresso making (or if grinding yourself, do not grind too fine). Using boiling water from the kettle instead of cold improves flavour. Be careful though as the pot gets very hot - use a cloth or oven glove to screw the top back on to the boiler. Brew on a medium low heat and do not 'over brew' as the coffee will burn and taste bitter: remove from heat when you hear the 'gurgling' sound. Another thing to remember is to prime your new expresso maker by brewing coffee in it several times and discarding. In any case, flavour improves with use! For our type of coffee I have found that the 6 cup size will make about 3-4 mugs latte style whereas the 4 cup makes about 2-3.

A number of reviewers have rightly pointed out that the handles can come off.
Having bought the item, you quickly realise why. The temptation is to use the handle to hold the top half whilst unscrewing the bottom part. It simply isnt strong enough to allow this - especially if the plastic is weakened through the heat of prolonged use.
So long as you avoid the temptation to use the handle as a lever - just hold the two aluminium halves [not when its hot] - it is a perfectly good product and works very well and delivers buzzy strong coffee [hint dont fill the coffee container more than half way up or you'lll have problems sleeping!
Recommendation, unless you live alone and sip out of little espresso cups, go for a larger option. We have a 6-cup and it struggles to fill two coffee mugs - go 8 or 10 - size does matter!

when it arrived it had a small hole at the water tank . I send it back and they replaced it really fast . The second one is perfect and produces really good coffee. It is easy to use and really beautiful. The only thing that I would like to mention(and this is why I do not give 5 stars) is that is being produced in China. I think that this is something that should be mentioned in the product description. When you buy bialetti espresso maker and you pay for it you expect to be from Italy.

I would recommend this to anybody, it's very good quality, and it works great on a induction hob. Looks great, and easy to clean.

Had to replace not very old cafetiere as we changed to an induction hob. This model looks beautiful and is very efficient. Lovely cup of coffee from it. Definitely NOT 6 cups, however. More like 4 espressos or 2 breakfast cups. Otherwise great.
