Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great for camping
The Bialetti Moka Pot gives you an easy way to make coffee on a camping trip. It's made using extremely durable aluminum, allowing it to take quite a beating. It can be heated using a portable gas stove, so you won't need a separate water heater, but you should avoid setting it on a campfire, since the coffee won't turn out so great due to the uneven heat distribution.
Pro Makes very strong tasting coffee
This coffee maker can produce coffee with an exceptionally strong taste, which surpasses coffee made by any drip coffee maker, but falls slightly short of a true espresso. This taste is achieved thanks to the pot's design and the way the coffee is brewed.
Pro Very easy to clean
This coffee maker has a very simple design and can be easily disassembled and cleaned. You should only clean it by hand since it will get damaged inside a dishwasher.
Con Have to be careful when using it on a cook top
The Bialetti Moka Pot's base is smaller than most burners found on kitchen cook tops. Because of this, the leftover heat causes the handle to get hot and can burn your hand, if you're not paying attention or aren't using a mitt.
