Cleanup was easy.

Never place the handle over the stoves burner as it will melt or at a minimum get too hot to safely handle.

All my attempts to contact Primula via phone and email have gone unresponded to.

Beware of this product! It's not Primula but Emporio espresso coffee maker which is nothing like Primula.

When I inquired this matter to the specialty Gourmet Goodies, they said these are the Primula units but they ran out of boxes at this busy time and used the Emporio boxes instead. If it says Emporio on the unit, then it's Emprio. It looks different and never brew any espresso. I couln't even return it because refunds will not be issued in used condition. I only tried to brew once which was unsuccesful. When I learned that I couldn't get any money back, I tried again with no luck.

Just bought this and it works great. You put water in the bottom, add coffee to the filter/funnel. As steam builds, it forces water up through the funnel and then through the coffee and you get this lovely espresso. My only warning (and this applies to all brands of stovetop espresso makers of this type) is that you have to stay close by as the coffee brews. Once all the water has boiled off, you have to turn off the heat or move the pot off or else you will have a nasty mess.

I purchased this Primula 6 cup espresso maker from Macys for what I believed was a great deal at $20. I've never owned a stovetop espresso maker before, so I don't have much of a benchmark for performance, but this took about 10-12 minutes to make espresso on medium heat, and to me the espresso seemed great. If you crank it up to high, it goes much faster but the coffee seems burnt.

However, after about a month the handle of this just snapped off as I lifted the coffee maker. Luckily it was empty of super hot java (thus lighter than normal), and cooled, but if it had been otherwise this could have caused some bad burns.

Not work the savings in the end, when I will end up having to pay more money to repurchase a better stovetop espresso maker.

I have contacted Primula about the issue. Thus far no response but I will update if any is received.

I purchased this "espresso" pot yesterday at a local supermarket along with some Bustelo espresso coffee. I purchased it understanding that it would not make "espresso" per-se as many today understand it, but something similar. This is because the limitation of the device is that it is essentially a specialized percolator rather than a piston or pump-driven device. I washed and rinsed it and ran a pot of plain water through it. This morning I opened the Bustelo, tamped slightly and made my first pot. I drank it straight and unsweetened, and made a hazelnut flavored latte for my wife. Both were very good. The espresso was smooth and flavorful, with just the right amount of bitterness. It was lacking "crema," though had I bothered to pour from a greater height , some semblance of crema may have formed. The latte was made with whole milk, which had been heated then frothed with an Aerolatte. It was sweetened with sugar and a splash of hazelnut syrup. While I did not sample it, my wife found it to be very good. Having the Aerolatte out led me to experiment with my second cup. A brief agitation led to a more attractive presentation of the espresso, and had no negative impact on the flavor. Cleanup was easy. All-in-all I find this to be excellent value, creating a product that is similar, though not identical, to the usual coffee-shop cup. It stands on its own merits.

I've been using this espresso maker to brew regular coffee. It's works great as long as the top is closed (hot coffee explodes out the tip on the inside).

You can not beat this appliance. It makes the smoothest full flavored coffee. It is fast and easy to use. I have had my coffee maker for over 5 years. I look forward to its wonderful coffee every morning.

Fortunately I was afforded the opportunity to examine this pot prior to purchase. Maybe the one I looked at was the exception, but the quality was terrible! The lid would not open all the way due to metal left after the pot was formed blocking the hinge, the safety valve was in crooked and had machining scars all around it. Not impressed.

I did purchase, and recommend, a Forever Moka pot. This is made in Italy and is advertised as 'Commercial Quality'. I have now owned this pot for almost a year, no staining, the silicone seal works great and best of all; it makes a killer cup of caffe. This pot does cost more but the quality is outstanding.

For care; always rinse with cold water only, no harsh soaps. I only rub the coffee out with my bare hand and running cold water. The pot still looks brand new. Never place the handle over the stoves burner as it will melt or at a minimum get too hot to safely handle. And last, but not least, do not over torque the base onto the top; after the seal contacts, turn the top just slightly more.
