Ikea Trivsel moka pot - as good as Bialetti?

sobriquet | Dec 26, 200803:26 PM     13

Does anyone have a Trivsel stovetop espresso pot? I have a Bialetti Moka 3-cup and want to get a larger one so I can take coffee with me in the morning. I'm thrilled with the quality of the coffee out of it, but I'm considering getting a stainless steel one so I can leave it dirty until I get home at night without worrying about the aluminum. I've tried using my french press the last few days and the coffee just isn't nearly as good.

The Bialetti Musa is ~$45, but the Ikea Trivsel (also in 6-cup) is ~$20. They look very similar and was wondering if anyone has some insight. Thanks!
