I own and use three other stove-top espresso makers; a 9-cup Bialetti, a 9-cup Forever, a 6-cup Forever, in addition to the 9-cup Cuisaid. The Cuisaid is the least well-made of the three brands and produces the least flavorful coffee. Even though I've "broken it in" by using it a number of times and have allowed a nice build-up of oils, it is still inferior to the Bialetti and Forever brands. For the money, it gets the job done but my advice is to spend a few extra bucks and get the Forever brand. If you're a real coffee aficionado, fork out the money and go with the Bialetti. The Bialetti and Forever brands are made in Italy and the Cuisaid is a Chinese knock-off. I'm not sure what metal is used in the Cuisaid brand but side by side tests on the stove show that it heats in the same amount of time as the other, better brands.

I have several French presses, an electric percolator, a Zojirushi electric drip maker with a thermal carafe, a Chemex, and more than one stove top espresso maker. (I even have a pricey Krups pump espresso maker which I never use because it's a pain to maintain and takes up a lot of space.) I love coffee and go on jags. I'll make French Press everyday for a few weeks, get tired of it and switch to coffee with chickory in my percolator for a while, and then switch to espresso. I probably use a stovetop espresso maker more than anything else.

I bought this one because I needed a larger one for entertaining. It works perfectly, but it is definitely cheaply made. If you want a largish stove top espresso maker for daily use, I'd buy a better one, perhaps even a stainless steel one. But, this one will make as good a pot of espresso as any stovetop maker out there. I expect this one will last me many years for occasional use.

I have a 2 cup and a 4 cup. I use one of them on the days I'm in an espresso mood. So, I bought more expensive models. One's a Bialetti and one I bought in Italy and have never seen for sale in the USA. I use them regularly and they have held up well over the years.

Here are a couple of tips for using this type of espresso maker:

1. Don't just turn the stove on high and blast away. Use a more moderate heat. It takes a few moments longer, but you're less likely to boil the coffee in the top which will make it bitter.

2. Never, ever put an aluminum espresso maker in the dishwasher. In fact, just wash it out with plain water and don't use any soap on it all. Don't use any abrasive cleaning utensil or steel wool. Aluminum is soft, it will discolor and pit - especially when it comes in contact with dishwasher detergent.

I have a standard electric expresso machine which I use daily. I was looking for a machine that I could bring with me when I travel. I am lucky enough to have some co-workers who are cubano and she was able to advise me on various machines. Since I will not be using eveyday, this is the product she recommended. It is a good sturdy espresso maker and will make enough for a nice strong cup. I have used multiple times since receiving it to make sure I would make the coffee correctly. The machine had no leaks and the handle remained cool to touch. For the value, I would recommend.

I bought this as an experiment to change the pace of typical drip-coffee makers. It's something to get used to as it's not made for multiple cups of coffee (1-2?). So far, it operates as describes and produces a pretty concentrated blend of coffee. Not bad for the price.

Coffee was good, I made my usual 16oz or so coffee, and only put in the grounds for regular strength. Better than my drip coffee, and maybe a bit better than the keurig.
I like basic perculators just fine, but this was better in that the coffee only goes through the grounds once. it was a bit fiddly with the bottom to screw on, and you need to watch and take it off the heat when finished as you don't want to have to use the valve. I found washing to be a bit of a chore and the metals are not smoothly honed a bit rough but the screw tight area was made well.

Big complaint is the handle. I put this on the gas stove and when the handle got too hot had 3 ft flames. Then the handle also was melting off onto the stove. I think the handle dripped when it got way too hot, and then hit the gas flame and started to burn tall flames that engulfed the rest of the handle. I was glad that i had 10 ft clear over the pot. Stove clean up was easy when the mess cooled,but it took me a minute to figure out how to extinguish burning plastic. As this is intended for stove top use, including gas ranges,I was disappointed. Yes it was my mistake for letting very high heat go up the side, but not an unforeseen user error, actually kind of expected every so often.

This would have rated 3.5 stars if no large fire had occurred. The great price compensated for the rough machine milling on the inside base and the basic design makes great coffee. The 9 "cup" aka 16oz size is the largest but I would have wanted it twice as big so I could make 2 extra large cups at a time without washing or reloading the grounds.

A lot of people don't even know what a stove-top espresso maker is! I've had one for many years - my parents bought it in Italy back in the day. Hard to find gaskets for it. So it was easier (and cheaper) just to buy a whole new espresso maker.

This does the trick - it brews fantastic espresso and is easy to clean and store. I have a lot of dinner parties, so the 9-cupper is great for me. If you are making espresso for yourself and perhaps one other, you may want to consider getting a smaller version.
