I ordered this item after having been unimpressed by the build quality of the various aluminium stove top espresso makers I had seen. I settled on the Stellar 'Art Deco' as it is made from stainless steel and I liked the idea of the wider base as I figured it would capture the heat from my gas stove burner more effectively as well as reducing sides overheating.

The quality of construction is marvellous, even better than I'd hoped; it is made from a very reassuringly heavy gauge of material throughout and everything fits together perfectly. It comes with a spare rubber seal and a tamping disc to pat down the coffee. It has a lifetime guarantee and if it didn't last a lifetime I'd be surprised. I read a review that suggested that the handle gets hot but have not found that to be the case.

The cup size delivered refers to the small espresso style cups (about 30 ml). I find that the six cup size makes a large mug, or two cups, of full flavoured latte.

This is not a cheap coffee maker but, it seems to me, it is good value.

This is a great little coffee pot and gives me the best coffee I have ever had. I use it with great delight every morning. It is easy to use, easy to take apart for washing, and does well on the small ring of my gas hob. The wide base is a good design for this purpose and for stability. For many years we used a similar, but far inferior pot made in aluminium, in our holiday caravan, but disposed of this because of the aluminium scare. We missed it greatly and longed to find a stainless steel model. Now at last we can again go back to wonderful coffee and without that aluminium taste.

I do have one small grumble - it should not be called a 6 Cup maker. Perhaps this is OK for very tiny doll's house sized cups. I find that this size model makes only one and a half mugs of coffee. With hot water and milk added I can make it do for two mugs. I couldn't use it when I have three or four friends for coffee. A very much bigger model would be needed. Therefore I have to say, do buy this wonderful little coffee maker if you are making coffee for one or possibly two every morning. Certainly do not buy the smaller model.

I have only given it 4 stars because of the confusing size-name

We used the Stellar Espresso Maker from the end of September 2013 when it arrived until the 15th. of December. I then reverted to the 20 year old Cafetière.

The pot was thoroughly cleaned before first use. Not thoroughly enough, the taste of the made coffee was awful and was discarded. Some black deposit was found under the rim of the thread on the inside of the base, probably cutting oil/suds. The next coffee still had a slightly odd taste but was drunk and neither my wife or I was ill.....

Subsequent brews continued to have something slightly odd in the smell and taste. A neighbour, a bit of a coffee enthusiast, was invited round to try a coffee from our new maker without telling him of our misgivings. He was polite but came clean when told what we thought; he thought it was dreadful.

The base was then filled with soapy water and boiled, followed by boiling diluted vinegar and rinsed. The base continued to have a definite smell of iron about it. On 'phoning Stellar its Chinese manufacture was admitted. I think that is the problem, nondescript steel. Stellar suggest that we return the pot to them to test. We haven't done that yet because it seemed only fair to give it time to make a half decent cup of coffee.

I cannot discover any more details about the materials used to make either the base or the top jug. The magnetic parts are the coffee container, the tamping disc and the base except for the screw thread. No one seems to know what the materials of the magnetic parts are, they're definitely not the preferred grade, 18/10 or 18/8 (304), for preparing and cooking food.

One of the companies that make good stainless cookware is WMF. We have a frying pan made by WMF in Germany.

Stellar seems to make the best espresso machines I reckon! I'm happy to be rid of the traditional aluminium octagonal shaped unit that I had before. Firstly it looks better on the stove top (although it has quickly discoloured on my gas hob.) And takes no time at all to clean. But best of all the coffee tastes great. I don't use my cafetiere any more! (After much experimentation, I think the best advice I have read is to always make the full capacity of espresso coffee that the machine can make. If you want Americano instead of Espresso, water it down after making it - I use cold water, then I can drink it quicker and don't have to boil the kettle!) A 6 size cup is about the right size for my two mugs of Americano coffee - if you are entertaining you'll need a larger one!

I treated us to this after a kitchen refit, our old expresso maker was still functional but did nt really look the part.
This does the job, and looks good whilst going it, if only the same could be said of its owner !

Just taken delivery and I have to say, this is a quality piece of kit. Very solid and beautiful to look at. The chamber for the water is quite large so the coffee doesn't come out too strong; my old pot with both coffee and water chambers full, produced terribly strong coffee that I'd have to water down. Although an espresso is supposed to be that strong I suppose. But with this, you have the option... just put less water in if super-strong coffee is your thing!
I'm very pleased and delivery only took about 24hrs!!! Amazing
Another reviewer said that the handle got hot... I didn't think so; not so much as to worry anyway.
Needless to say, the old Ali pot has been unceremoniously dumped in the bin... 'bout time too
