i have a ceramic stove top and was disappointed that i couldnt find an espresso maker (reasonably priced) i could use on it ...until this! i love it!! who cares if it becomes stained (how can the base become stained with coffee, it only contains water?) i cant image the italians losing sleep over it! use it, rinse it, use it again! thank you Lakeland, im a very happy bunny :-)

At last .....”
a perfect espresso at home ! Over many years and numerous experiments with a variety of machines all we've achieved is a cupboard-full of gear and many a packet of coffee thrown away. Now, with the Lagostina, we've achieved perfection from the very first attempt ! The secret ? Simple ! We followed the simple instructions ie 'place on a low light'. After 10 days of use ( at least once per day ) every cup has been perfect and THERE ISN'T A MARK ON THE BASE, LET ALONE THE SIDE. Clearly, the brand of coffee must suit your taste - but the critical thing is to read the instructions for the machine.

lagostina expresso maker”
Whilst I love the coffee that this expresso maker makes the finish on it has not lived up to my expectations. After only being used a few times the shine has disappeared and there are stains on it that will not come off I've even tried the steam cleaner but the coffee stains will not shift

Pleased purchaser of coffee maker.”

I have recently purchased this coffee maker to replace my old jaded coffee maker. Very pleased with the design and cleans well and have recommended this style to others. Best stove coffee maker I have purchased.

Much better quality than the rest of this kind...I've tried them all. Well engineered, absolutely reliable and feels like it will last for years. A larger one, please!

A note from the team: Thanks for your review. I've passed your suggestion for a larger version on to our buying team
by Mrs simpson
I've had mine for a few months and am very happy with it, it makes excellent coffee. Wouldn't mind having a bigger one. Also I wonder where I can get spare parts if needed (no need so far)?

I chose the Lagostina as a birthday present. It arrived very quickly and I liked its looks and performance. However, in a very short space of time, the base has become discoloured and has coffee stains on it which can't be removed. In my attempts to get them off, I have spoilt the shiny surface. Unfortunately, won't be leaving this out on the worktop and will not recommend.

Better than my old pot!”
by Ms MDermott
I bought this on impulse to replace my old pot and it is even better. It is very safe and easy to use as well as being very good looking(trust the Italians). It also makes the most superb espresso. Forget about the fancy electric machines, this is perfect.
