    I had a laugh Nice Andy. The scarey part is that if they were here Id buy then just to add one to my collection. A microwave Moka pot, I love it. I had a laugh

    I actually bought one of these for my neice a few years ago when she went off to uni and it actaully makes a fair cup of coffee.
    At least as good as a Moka Pot anyway.

    Re: Cheap Espresso machine on ebay...

    At work, we bought a great big box of these on Ebay from some auctionbrokers lot. They are surprisingly well made; the only problem is that they dont seem to work very well. When the water boils and goes up the tube, it doesnt all leave the bottom chamber. So the thing is left with half the water at the top and half still in the bottom. On a conventional pot, you could leave it on the heat and finish the job, but in the microwave, I suspect it would melt down first...

    Bit of a novelty though, putting a moka pot in the microwave.... ::)
