Use the original Stovetop Espresso Maker to produce rich Italian Espresso in your own home. The 6-cup capacity makes it easy to enjoy your morning espresso without over brewing. This beautiful Kitty espresso maker features a very practical and contemporary design. Excluding the heat resistant bakelite handle, this stylish stovetop espresso maker is completely made of stainless steel (including inner parts such as funnel & filter plate). The ergonomically designed handle has an extra wide reach creating more distance between the body of the maker and your hand for safer handling while still allowing you to comfortably open and close the lid with the same hand. Kitty is suitable for use on gas, electric as well as ceramic stove tops.
