The Dolce & Gabbana X Bialetti moka pot is a collaboration between the fashion house Dolce and Gabbana and Bialetti, known for their high-quality moka pots. Unlike previous collaborations, this moka pot is affordable and stylish, featuring a vibrant red pattern inspired by the colors and landscapes of Sicily.
As a barista, I was excited to try this moka pot and it did not disappoint. It not only looks stunning but also brews great coffee. The dimensions of the pot are 6.3 x 4.7 x 8.5 inches and it weighs 32.5 oz. It has a capacity of either 3 or 6 cups and is made of aluminum and thermoplastic. The pot is compatible with gas, electric, and glass ceramic stovetops, as well as induction with an induction plate.
The unboxing experience is impressive, with the moka pot coming in a beautiful box with premium tissue paper. The design features Sicilian Cart motifs, creating a distinct Dolce & Gabbana aesthetic. However, before using the moka pot, it’s important to rinse it and run coffee through it to remove any aluminum flakes from the manufacturing process.
This moka pot is perfect for those who value both aesthetics and coffee flavors. It is easy to use and brews a strong and smooth cup of coffee. The handle is heat resistant, allowing for easy pouring. However, the moka pot is not suitable for induction stovetops without a special converter.
Cleaning the moka pot is simple, although hand washing is recommended to preserve its appearance. The pot is small and compact for storage, making it a great addition to any kitchen countertop.
Overall, the Dolce & Gabbana X Bialetti moka pot offers both style and functionality. While it may not make better coffee than a regular Bialetti moka pot, its striking design is sure to appeal to coffee enthusiasts who appreciate the finer details.
