Q: 1st attempt out of the box and the handle started on fire. The base had water, the flame wasn't high enough to meet the edges. I'm saddened that this little pot died so tragically! I'll try again with another. Anyone else experience this?

submitted by PeachyHans - 5 years ago
  • A: I think the key is to place the base of the moka pot off the center of the burner rather than in the center of the burner. And also, place turn the handle to the outermost aspect of the burner top so it doesn't melt or get too hot.

    submitted byPartyof5 - 3 years ago
  • A: Wrap a good deal of aluminium foil on the handle to reflect the heat.

    submitted byRahul_Does - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi PeachyHans, I am sorry to hear about your first experience with the Moka. The handle is plastic and should not be exposed to high heat source. Please make sure you place the whole base on the stove, over a medium flame (heat source) and make sure the handle is pointed away for the flame, or to the side of the burner. please contact our customer service department with your experience. 800-421-6290

  • A: As Bradshaw mentioned, try to keep the handle away from the heat source as it is plastic!

    submitted byPam D - 8 years ago
  • A: I use mine on a gas stove - but I see no reason why it wouldn't work on an electric stove...my assumption is as long as water is brought to a boil - it will work.

  • A: Yes, you can use it on an electric stove top.

Q: Is It dishwasher safe?

submitted by Alejandro - 4 years ago
  • A: Wash/rinse it by hand with hot or warm water. I recalled in another web site NOT to use dish detergent. Confirm my comment with the included instructions.

    submitted byPostino - 2 years ago

Q: Will this work on an induction stovetop

submitted by To be married - 6 years ago
  • A: I use it on an induction stovetop. It works well. Need to be careful not to drag the pot across the burner, though, so you don't scratch the glass.

    submitted byjaneyq - 6 years ago
  • A: The Bialetti website says it is NOT induction safe. :(

Q: Assuming I can make iced lattes easily with this unit?

submitted by Terri R - 7 years ago
  • A: It is very easy, it only takes about 4 minutes.

    submitted byCoffee lover - 7 years ago
  • A: It basically just makes hot espresso and then you can decide what to do with it after; if you want to throw it over ice and milk and make a latte.

Q: The instructions say, on the first use to make 3 cups of coffee and dump it out/don't drink it.. Seems like a waste of coffee. Does this really need to be done?

submitted by dereerised - 4 years ago
  • A: Yes, part or the moka is the “seasoning” of flavor, these 3 batches help start this. Also, as these items are shipped and moved before getting to you these 3 cup will help clean the insides. Please follow these steps. Hope this helps!

Q: Does it work to only make 1 or 2 espresso cups or do you have to fill it with water as shown in the video to get it to work properly?

submitted by NYRookie - 4 years ago
  • A: Thank you for your question. For the Bialetti Moka to work properly you will need to fill the water up to the valve as shown in the video. This will yield you 1 large mug of espresso or 6 espresso sized cups. If you have additional questions please reach out to a member of our team and they would be happy to help you. We can be reached Monday-Friday 9AM-5PM PST at 1-800-421-6290. Hope this helped!

I received a brand new fresh moka pot. It had metal shavings and machine oil inside. Must be washed several times, boil fresh water without coffee to clean. Take it apart completely. Make 3 pots of coffee throw them all out, wash completely then use the pot. I think they all have metal shavings stuck in oil if the pot is brand new.

Item had water damage inside it's retail box, and a closure tab was torn. Product delivery was delayed twice — with no notification, despite the app being right here — and was passed between UPS and USPS for no functional reason provided by anyone involved! Two day delivery became five, but I was still charged as if everything was fine. I might as well have ordered from Amazon, at this point! Kind of takes a lot away from the experience when you're sending a gift, like this was intended to be.

After trying a neighbor's 3-cup bialetti, we invested in a 6-cup Bialetti so there was enough for two of us. It's important to remember the a cup is equal to 2 oz, so depending on how much you drink, buy a Bialetti that adds up to your cup size. It makes great coffee that's stronger than drip coffee but not as concentrated as espresso. It takes a little practice to brew a good cup. If you watch a video or two, it'll happen pretty quickly. The key things to know: 1) fill the water only to the bottom of the tank valve, the valve should be exposed to air, 2) fill the coffee grounds loosely and level it off to be flat, do not pack it down, 3) use medium heat, and 4) never walk away from your moka pot while its heating on the stove. One last note, this is NOT diswasher safe. All you need to do is rinse the parts once its cooled. You can brush or rub with a sponge every so often to remove build up but don't use soap as it can tarnish aluminum over time.

The coffee actually tastes better. You have to use espresso ground, and I found it tastes better with this than in keurig, although I still use my keurig when I just want coffee. We bought a small electric burner so I didn't have to use the stove each time. The size 1 is basically a single shot of espresso and the 9 makes 14 oz. It's huge. The 3 would be good for small cups and the 6 should be good for larger mugs. I included a photo of a 1 and a 9.

Favorite way to make coffee. Easy to use, saves space, no need to buy filters and doesn’t require a plug since you use it straight on your stove. However, you do need to pay attention to it so you don’t burn your coffee. Pro tip: set a timer!

Missing part

1 out of 5 stars
jakethedog - 9 months ago, Verified purchaser
I've used other moka pots in the past (which have worked perfectly! I love them) but this one didn't work at all. It seemed like the design was just a little different from the other sized mokas I had used in the past, so I kept assuming it was my error. I've tried off and on for months to get this one to work, and finally did some research - turns out the one I received was in fact missing a critical gasket seal. I can't tell if I should be disappointed in target or Bialetti - did I receive a returned product or did Bialetti goof? Either way, I've wasted a lot of time, energy, and fresh coffee grounds on this product for it to continue to fail me. A huge bummer.

This is, by far, the easiest way I've found to make a delicious espresso drink at home. It's easy to use, easy to clean, and I can take it with me when I camp or travel anywhere that has a stove top. I'm kind of a coffee snob and have tried using an espresso machine (too long to clean), French press (not quite right for espresso), and an AeroPress, and have found this to be a far better option.

I love our Bialetti Espresso Maker! It makes delicious espresso. It is easy to use and zero waste. I just watched a few videos online regarding how to use it. It’s pretty basic and straightforward. For anyone complaining about the handle melting or getting hot, you are 1) using too big of a burner and 2) using too high of heat. I use the smallest burner on my gas stove, and I keep the flame at medium-low. It takes 10-15 minutes to finish brewing. I plan on buying a larger pot in the future, the 9 or even 12 cup maker. Delicious!

I opened this product and knew exactly what to do. Simple instructions and fast/efficient for one person use. The outside of the product gets extremely hot after heating so be careful when touching. You will have to wait until it cools down to make additional coffee. Otherwise, 10/10!
