    I have ordered one of these. Gone cheap to see if I get on with it. Can always buy a better one in future.

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    I like that. An attractive alternative to the usual "waisted" shape.

    edit:Just checked our espresso cups and they're 100ml, where the description above says 50ml. ?? Whatever. We don't use the espresso cups much though, mainly using the pot to make our "normal brew which is a large coffee cup of coffee, about 2/3 full of coffee & topped up with hot frothed up milk.

    Mine will be served in proper sized cups with hot milk. I don't have a frother. All I need to do now is experiment with different coffee brands/types. I doubt my usual cafetiere ones will have the right flavour.

    We have a cheapo battery operated whisk thingy to froth the hot milk. Works a lot better than the one that looks like a percolator (and takes up too much room).

    That's a good idea. I see Ikea have them for a quid. My campervan is really going up market!

    The surprising thing about this thread is no one has mentioned stainless steel, while the aluminium ones are made of food grade ali stainless is easier to clean.

    I have been using this now for a couple of weeks and get on with it really well. It is not the best made product, thin metal, the lid is slightly askew and I had to put in a longer screw to hold the knob on. But for less than a tenner including postage I won't complain.
    I find I am using this more than my Dulce Gusto machine so I will probably buy a better quality one for the kitchen and leave this one in the campervan all the time.
