Adding eclectic character to the kitchen stovetop, this Bialetti 06801 polished-aluminum coffee pot features a unique octagon shape that was first designed in Italy in 1933. The unit makes nine 2-ounce espresso cups of coffee in just four to five minutes and is extremely simple to use. Just fill the lower chamber with water and the top filter with fine-ground coffee. Then place the pot on the stove and heat until the water boils. Through a pressurizing process, espresso moves to the upper chamber of the pot, ready to be served. Other highlights include a flip-up top with an easy-grip knob, a stay-cool black plastic handle, and a side-pour spout. When finished using the unit, wash it by hand with warm soapy water and rinse clean. Made in Italy, the espresso maker measures 4 inches wide by 9 inches tall.
