This pot works. I bought the electric version because the burners on my stove are too large for a smaller pot. (Beware -- if you balance a small pot on a large burner, the handle will weaken and break off -- this happened to me and it was not pretty.) The coffee is delicious and the pot is easy to clean -- just dump out the grinds and rinse. In fact, this pot is just like my Mom's, albeit electrical. Although it's advertised for six cups of espresso, it's great for brewing the one, large cup that I prefer after dinner. In fact, if I didn't have my mother's ancient large espresso pot, I'd definitely buy an even larger version for company.
A word of advice: wash out the grinds and clean the pot right away, so that your pot does not deteriorate and your coffee become "bitter." Vinegar wash will not fix a pot whose finish has deteriorated; the only way to prevent such damage is to clean the pot immediately after each use.
The difference in the new electric moka model is that the base, which houses the electric switch, is now separate. I've been using this model daily for almost a year now, with absolutely no problems.
Stovetop models make a better "espresso type" coffee, producing some crema on top. I still use my stovetop moka pots at home because I have the leisure time to watch & listen for the brewing to finish.
The electric pot is kept at work, where I can enjoy wonderful coffee brewing right in my office, instead of the tasteless coffee brewed in the breakroom. Not having to worry about the coffee burning, if I have to step out while it's brewing, is a big advantage. The light turns green and the pot beeps distinctly for about 1 minute when the brewing is finished, then it shuts itself off. It brews coffee faster than my stovetop moka pots at home. Supposedly it will keep the coffee warm for about 20 minutes, but I pour mine immediately, so I've never tested that feature! It brews about 10oz. of strong, espresso-type coffee (with a small amount of crema), to which I add 6 oz. of milk heated in the microwave. Illy is the brand of coffee I use; they've just come out with a new product especially for moka coffee, ground a bit coarser.
I've no complaints about Bialetti's product! This wonderful electric moka pot has saved me the money that I used to squander daily at Starbucks.Read more ›
For those who dare: be sure to keep your coffeemaker very dry [it's best to store it disassembled], be careful never to add water above the escape valve [or it can blow], screw it together tightly and hold the coffeemaker not the handle when you twist. And for us, this made one large mug.
I'm giving it a 3 since it broke so soon [and believe me, I pampered the little pot]. The coffee tastes great!
