The Bialetti Moka Induction produces very strong coffee. In our taste test we found it made bitter coffee, but not too overwhelming that we found it unpleasant.

This can probably be attributed to the coffee basket being surprisingly deep compared to the small water chamber, which explains the very strong and bitter coffee – the ratio of coffee is high. However, this isn't a downside if you like strong coffee or if you add milk to alleviate the bitterness.

Usability and cleaning

The Moka Induction is easy to clean, and with so few parts there's no worry of losing any of them. Make sure to rinse the parts well, and try to clean the inside surfaces by removing the gasket and filter as frequently as possible. This will prevent old coffee affecting the taste of your future brews.

Good usability features

  • The handle is made of silicone and is comfortable to hold. Double-check the specification before purchasing the Moka Induction, as some version have a plastic handle instead of the silicone one.
  • The function of the rubber ring on the outside is not really explained. We think it's supposed to provide better grip when unscrewing the chambers. It seems like Bialetti don't sell versions of the Moka Induction with this rubber ring anymore.

Minor usability issues

  • There's nothing to indicate how much you should fill the lower chamber with water. We always recommend filling up to the safety valve but not covering it.
  • The fit for the screw was bad, as it screeched when screwing or unscrewing. This is probably because of bad machining on the thread. It could be a one off with our unit, and the screeching might go away after some use, but there's no assurance that will happen.

The look of the Moka Induction is slightly unusual when compared to other mainstream moka pots. From the prominent red colour to the strange lid handle. We thought the red to be somewhat overwhelming, potentially clashing with the aesthetic of many kitchens. But the Moka Induction does come in other colours, including a more neutral black.

The lid handle is also weirdly like a Barbara Hepworth sculpture for some reason, so if you're into that kind of thing, this is you're moka pot!

Sustainability and repairability

Like with every other Bialetti moka pot, acquiring replacement parts is easy. They are readily available on their site or on other online stores like Amazon or Ebay. Gaskets can also be sourced at local homeware and hardware shops.
