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

    submitted byRahul_Does - 1 year ago
  • A: As Bradshaw mentioned, try to keep the handle away from the heat source as it is plastic!

    submitted byPam D - 6 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.

Q: Is It dishwasher safe?

submitted by - 2 years ago

Q: Will this work on an induction stovetop

submitted by To be married - 5 years ago
  • A: The Bialetti website says it is NOT induction safe. :(

    submitted byjaneyq - 5 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.

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

submitted by Terri R - 5 years ago
  • A: It is very easy, it only takes about 4 minutes.

    submitted byCoffee lover - 5 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 - 3 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!

Big Disappointment - 4 months ago, Verified purchaser
I own a well used 2 cup Bialetti stovetop moka pot and when I purchased it sveral years ago, I thought it was made in Italy because that is what is stated on the front of the pot. Turns out, it was made in China! I Bought this 6 cup size because it is apparently the smallest you can purchase if you want a Bialetti moka pot made in Italy. As you will see in the photo, the seal has markings around it. I could have overlooked this because of course the pot was going to be washed before use, but the seal is not tight. If you look closely you can see the gaps. The top of the pot does not screw on well either. I don't know what type of coating is used for the bottom of the pot, but it is certainly shiny... The last pot I purchased and returned (different brand) had what appeared to be the same type of coating and that coating yielded an undrinkable beverage that tasted like there was chemical solevant leaching. To be fair I have not used this pot. It's a shame, but it really seems like this is no longer a well made brand of moka pots. Perhaps this one slipped through the quality test. I will be returning it for a refund without putting it to use.

This is literally the best purchase I’ve ever made! Been spending a disgusting amount of money on stupidly expensive iced lattes and decided I should just try to make my own. Bought this with low expectations/confidence (in myself, not the product) and omg… so easy and SO DELICIOUS! Be sure to run it through a clear cycle just water the first few times. VERY user friendly; only three pieces total. Whole process to brew takes maybe 5-7 minutes which I honestly found super impressive! It tastes the same if not better than the chain espresso drinks! Buy it !!!

Delicious Espresso

5 out of 5 stars
Would recommend
Tiffany - 8 months ago, Verified purchaser
It really is the most affordable way to make good tasting espresso. Simple to use and easy to clean. The big drawback is that you have to make the full 6 "cup" serving everytime. A typical americano cup of coffee needs two shots or "cups" with either steam milk or hot water, so this makes 3 servings, no less no more. You have to buy the size maker for the amount of espresso you wish to make. It is easy simple process that is foolproof if you're by your stove paying attention as it fills completely up when it reaches the correct pressure. "Cups" are in quoations because they are espresso cups of 1.5 ounces. This 6 cup espresso maker makes about 9 ounces with about 5 typical scoops of coffee espresso ground and pressed into the basket. I will buy a bigger one for parties.

Italy In A Cup

Mee_Reev - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
This is exactly like the one we got to use when in Italy. So happy I found one here! It is not 6 cups of coffee but it’s not supposed to be coffee. Since this is an espresso maker the servings are very strong and small. Adding boiled water to the finished product makes beautiful coffee when I want coffee, not espresso, which then can equal 6 large American cups of coffee. Otherwise, this makes amazing espresso to add to my lattes. So in love with my Bialetti! Takes me back to Italy each time I use it.

The first couple uses were fine. But now the espresso grounds are come through & it makes it tastes like old stale espresso. I use mine to make mock iced Starbucks drinks & as you can see from my photo, all the grounds at the bottom of my almost empty drink that I haven’t quite sucked up through my straw. Yuck!

Coaliecheyanne - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
This is not 6 cups. More like 1 cup if you’re lucky. Which is pointless for any more than one person drinking it. It is quick and easy but clean up sucks. It’s like a teeny tiny French press. Kinda useless but looks cool. Coffee tastes good(better than French press) so that’s a plus. Overall kinda disappointed in the capacity and the tediousness of it.
