Bialetti Venus Induction Stove-top Coffee Maker
Quality product delivering quality coffee
I have come back to using a stove top coffee pot while working away from home, there is little doubt this is the best way to enjoy fresh coffee. I selected this pot for two reasons, the quality of the manufactiure and materiels and its style, so good that I have bought two. I cannot rate this highly enough, being stainless steel it retains its looks and delivers fresh coffee every time. Very highly recommended if you want to treat yourself to a coffee pot that will last many years.

Stylish and practical.
This stove-top pot gets the best from ground coffee. Some reviews have commented that hot liquid can escape from the lid and onto the handle. The way to avoid this is to moderate the heat and not boil the water too violently. With a medium heat it works perfectly.

We used our traditional stove top bialetti continously until we switched to an induction hob and then missed it terribly. The induction Bialetti is great. The coffee is really good and it looks very stylish. Not sure what people are talking about when they say it leaks etc. It doesn't. The only thing is that the small one is quite smal- really only makes enough for 2 people. I would have bought a bigger one!

Not at all as I expected. Bialetti coffee pot
I bought this product in March and, as I am used to using expresso coffee makers of this type, I thought it would serve my purpose very well. However after trying it over and over again on a low heat and medium, I found it didn't function at all. Most of the water just remained in the bottom half and in fact the coffee pot itself turned brown through over heating simply because the water refused to come up through the coffee. By the way, yes I did use the correct kind of coffee especially for this type of machine.
However, I took the coffee pot back to John Lewis in Southampton, where I had bought it, and the sales assistant gave me a complete refund. She did offer me another identical product but I thought I would rather buy one in Italy.

We have found this absolutely fine. Just don't overfill.
I am buying a second for my son- He has the smaller one but uses this when visiting and prefers ours as it's bigger

Okay but poor design
Whilst it looks well designed there appears to be a small flaw in this and that is the gap at the top of the handle. It does allow steam and (if you put a little too much water in the base) hot water down the handle. I can live with it but would not buy another one. I would go and check the design out in the shop first.

Bialetti meets expectations
The previous review gave me cause to pause before buying this product but now, having bought it and tried it out many times, I am very satisfied with it. It makes very good coffee and does not leak at all! Also, I am pleased that I took the plunge and replaced my old aluminium one because of the health issues concerning aluminium. No need to worry with stainless steel!
