Customer Review

23 November 2020
I've had my old Bialetti Moka 9 cup pot (that I bought from a Bialetti shop in Milan) for about 4 years before replacing it with this one (12 cup) in May 2020. After 1 use, the circular treading at the bottom melted away and I've not used it since because I was afraid that I'd be ingesting aluminum.

This is how it looks like now. I know the aluminum pots do not like water and they should be kept dry (which I try to), but my previous moka pot was mostly stained (with water marks or coffee) but never melted. Feels like the materials used may be of lower quality than before.

I don't think I'll ever get another aluminum percolator given this experience though. If anything, I'll probably look at stainless steel percolators instead in the future, just to be safe.
