I live in an area that sometimes can be without electricity. That can cause a problem if you don't have alternative means of making coffee. Hence the Bialetti Venus Espresso machine is awesome.... will work on electric burners and also on campfires! LOL Makes a great cup of espresso. Brew Performance Mmmmm! Can use any type of coffee; espresso, columbian, himaylan, etc! I bought it because I made Israeli coffee! Have had it for years and it's still held up! Doesn't take too long to brew. Nice aromas.....ah! Ease of Cleaning Very much so! Comes apart, clean and the put it back together.... simple! Mirror Stainless finish leaves it nice and shiny. I haven't even had to replace the gasket as of yet. Ease of Use Cleans easily! Coffee in one compartment, water in the other... heat.... that's it! Design Love the modern design. Functional! It's the old fashion idea in a modern design! Durability Stainless Steel? The best!!!! Even if it drops, it's still okay! Nothing that can break!
