The Bialetti 06968 4-Cup Venus combines beauty and elegance in a tastefully designed stovetop espresso maker. Bialetti's legacy of quality and reliability lives on in this coffee maker crafted in high-quality 18/10 stainless steel (including the inner parts such as funnel and filter plate) with ergonomic, heat-resistant handle, and lid. Produces 4 cups of rich, authentic Italian espresso in just 4-5 minutes. Note that max boiler capacity is slightly greater than the final output. Some water will be left in the boiler after brewing.
