Beautiful and Functional,
This review is from: A di Alessi Espresso Coffee Maker, 3 Cups (ARS09/3) (Kitchen & Home)
This is a beautifully made Italian product that we have used many times and love it.
We have not experienced any of the problems stated below. The handle barely gets warm (we use medium to low heat as recommended). Because the handle is made of metal it won't wear like plastic or wood.
There is no need to use the thumb lever when pouring, or ever really, so that is not a problem.
We have had a number of espresso makers and this one is the best. It is easy to pour, clean and the quality is unbeatable.
The coffee is wonderful. We just ordered a smaller size of the same design.
