4.0 out of 5 stars Not terrible but also not great..., 6 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Le'Xpress Italian Style Three Cup Espresso Maker (Kitchen & Home)
First of all, the maxim "you get what you pay for" definitely springs to mind. Many reviewers are saying that this caffettiera is "cheap and nasty" to look at. They are right. It looks a tad tacky too when you get up close and personal with it.

However, looks aside, this coffee maker makes an excellent espresso. It works just as well as the Bialetti caffetteria, and the only reason why I bought this was because I accidentally destroyed my Bialetti one day when I forgot to put water in it. Mine works fine on a standard gas stove, so I'm not sure why others with a gas stove are having issues. It also seems to percolate twice as fast as my late Bialetti, without compromising taste - not sure what's going on, but I'm not complaining.

I rate this item 4/5 - it loses one star for its tacky looks. But it makes a great espresso so I'm definitely happy; and since most of my friends have never even used one of these things before, they all think it's an attractive item!
