Hi! Do you own the "Neapolitan Coffee Maker 1-2 Cup Size - Stainless Steel - Made in Italy" you put on the list? Because being made of stainless steel is nicest compared to the classic Ilsa made of aluminum but the only three reviews of the one in this list are negative and regard the same issue: the inner container falls right to the bottom. I'll go for the aluminum one if you don't own it and can't confirm this and also that one could go into the Under $35 list.

I actually don't own the specific one mentioned in the holiday gift list - I bought one about 15 years ago, and to be honest, felt prey to the mantra that "they're all the same" so I picked a visually nice looking one. If there are problems with it though, I will have to try and find another flip to feature.

Thanks for pointing to the reviews, I didn't read them.

Mark
