on 23 December 2016
The base doesn't screw on easily, needing several attempts, and makes a loud grinding noise. I've had this one for just over a year and can't be bothered to use it. When I contacted customer services for advice they couldn't even be bothered to reply. This is so disappointing as the two cup I bought a couple of years ago was far superior and still great, which is why I opted for a larger one. Perhaps this six cup Bialetti Venus Induction Espresso Maker was made by a different manufacturer.
