GAT Winner Collection Stove Top Espresso Coffee Pot - Review

Just look at this wonderfully curvy and cute 2 person Stove Top Espresso Coffee Pot from the Italian maestros G.A.T.

 
This is a must have for any Espresso coffee lover.  You can enjoy Espresso in just a few minutes and in the comfort of your own home.  

Available in eye-catching colours Orange, Purple, Green and Blue.
Suitable for use on all hob types, excluding induction.
The G.A.T. 'Winner Collection' Espresso Pots are available in four sizes – 2/4/6/10 cups. 


Having kindly been sent this lovely orange 2 person size coffee pot to review, I can confirm they are in a word, brilliant!  
The boiler part has a non-stick lining for quick and convenient use and cleaning.  

How to use it:
Just add water to the base part and add ground espresso coffee to the inner filter.

Screw the top part on and place on the stove top to percolate.  Perfect, expert espresso in a matter of minutes.

How does it work?
As the water heats up it's forced upwards through the filter and emerges (fully filtered) into the top part ready to pour.  How do you know it's ready?  A faint whistling and bubbling noise can be heard whilst the coffee is rising and stops when it's done.

One thing I must point out, the very first time I used it nothing happened. 
The coffee never appeared, but common sense told me the water had evaporated away to slowly.  All my fault, I just didn't have the heat high enough.  If you look at my picture you'll see I have the flame quite high under the coffee pot.  

Perfect -  it worked in a few minutes. 
Because of the small size of the 2 cup maker the handle does get quite hot, but as long as you're careful this isn't a problem.

All in All:
Fantastically cute, makes perfect espresso coffee in minutes and is very easy to clean.  The makers suggest you wash in a mixture of hot water and bicarbonate of soda - I did, and it shines up nicely like new.
I love all the colours available too, but being addicted to all things orange - orange was the way to go for me!

Thank you to Pam, Gilberts and Top Gourmet for sending me this to review.
All opinions and thoughts are my own.  I was not required to write a positive review.  I only ever post reviews on products I like the look of, and therefore would buy myself.
