The 9090 isn't just the first stove top espresso coffee maker in history: it was also first object for the kitchen after the 1930s, the first of many Compasso d'Oro awards (1979), first object to be inducted into the Permanent Design Collection at the New York MOMA, and of course it's the best-loved Alessi coffee maker bar none, as well as first "amphibious object", i.e. it is for kitchen use, but with its high design quality it can also be brought directly to the table.

First time out steam is pouring from the base literally filling my kitchen and there’s a little leakage of actual coffee too !
The whole point of this is you don’t have to screw on the base , which is where most machines have leakage problems if you don’t tighten it enough .
It just looks so far removed from the shiny ornament it’s been to date , it’s
Opening the machine it’s only half full?
I cannot tell you how disappointed I am with this product .
Tried getting a number /contact for Alessi but can’t find anything for advice .
Insult to injury was the added vat only levied right at the end which made it more expensive than I imagined .
Coffee als tastes a little bitter .
We have a belling induction oven / hob and the 9090/06 will heat on any of the ring sizes so I wouldn't be surprised if the 9090/3 works on the smallest hob size (if you're thinking of going for the smaller 3 cup model).
UPDATE: MAY 2020. Was looking through my Amazon history and thought it worth updating this review. My Alessi is now 6 years old (!) and still used almost everyday. Amazingly, no spare parts have needed to be “swapped-in” and the taste is the same as day 1. Still using the 3 cup limiter (only fished out of the bin a handful of times!) on an induction hob at heat level 5 or 6/9. Bought for £100, approx. 2000 uses, £0.05 per (big) cup. Buy quality, buy once.
Here the steam coming out consistently from the bottom part, so a lot of steam is lost and the coffee doesn't come out propretly
I am very happy with this product
