I had the pleasure of using on of these to make my morning mug of coffee while on holiday last summer. Makes one large mug of very strong coffee. I've been watching the price for it to drop below £20 before buying, and it just has. This is the lowest price it's been since the exchange rate with the Euro was rather more in our favour a few years back, so if you were thinking of buying one, now is the time to hit the button.

Yes, I know it's another Italian product. It's just a coincidence, honest.

I just amended the price because it's gone up by 5p to £20.

Looks like that one is lower than it's been for quite a while too. I'm still on old fashioned gas, so the traditional design one will do for me.
Great price - was just about to post this but you beat me to it. Have some heat!
Great price!
Thanks, OP. Been thinking about trying one of these for a while. Hopefully you've just made Sunday morning a bit nicer for me!

You can place this one in any induction pan you already own. Pan on the hob, Moka pot in the dry pan. Would help with overspill too, I'd imagine.

I have a gas hob, which can melt the handle on these, and just stick it in a dry frying pan, no need to pay extra for a special one.

CamelCamelCamel suggests this hasn't been below £25 for the past 6 months

the italians apparently dont wash theirs due to the slightly metallic taste. Just rinse. Over time the oils build up and seasons the inside for the best cup of coffee you'll ever drink in your life. Had mine for 20 years.Change the filters occasionally (ebay) Amazing bit of kit. Forget those stupid pod things.
I don't think it's any wonder that it makes a strong cup of coffee when you've got 6 espressos in it.
Got one of these last year after seeing people using them on campsites. One of our most used kitchen gadgets - easy to clean, unlike the coffee machine we bought a few years ago. And much better quality than the ones I've seen in Sainsbury for instance. Heat added for the great price.

Got mine today. I was reading a few sites and followed their instructions. Basically get some cheap coffee and go through about 5-6 cycles and chuck the coffee away, just to remove the metallic taste and start to get a build up of coffee. Already tasting really good with Lavazza coffee

I've been 'brewing' and throwing away coffee to season mine, which arrived today, but it's bringing tears to my eyes to see that coffee go down the sink
