some sharp edges,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bialetti Elegance Venus Induction 4 Cup Stainless Steel Espresso Maker (Kitchen & Home)
I've been using a 6 cup Spanish Valira moka pot for over 20 years, but am fed up with fiddling about with the reducer plate to halve the brew size. Otherwise it's been great. I've got a Dualit m/c too, works well, but haven't touched it for a year because the moka pot is just so quick & easy.
The Bialetti is stainless throughout & looked like the ideal replacement as I do wonder about aluminium pots.
Only issue when received was the sharp burrs all round the top of the inner funnel. I'm sure the seal would be damaged if used in that condition so I carefully stoned them off.
Used twice and no leaks.
In my experience the coffee choice is what makes the difference with these pots. Illy is good, and Waitrose Monsooned Malabar is too.
