6-cup Italian Bialetti Espresso Maker
It is hands down the best espresso maker I've ever owned. It's simple to use and is way cheaper than buying espresso at a coffee shop. The two biggest pros are the quality of the espresso - if you measure it right, it makes a great cup - and the simplicity of it.
You just put it on the stove and wait till steam comes rushing out the top. Two cons would be the clean-up: if you don't remove the used coffee grounds from the cup it can become moldy and hard-to-clean very quickly. Also, the size might be an issue for some. It says it's a 6-cup, but I usually can only fill three small cups with espresso.
Other than that, I can't think of a bad thing to say about it. I've had mine for three years and have had no problems with it. Out of a five...I would give it a five :). Really great investment. The parts will probably outlive you while still producing better espresso than Starbucks.Pros
