Yes, you just need to get a pot that's made of the right stuff. Induction hobs only work with magnetic metals. If you can stick a magnet to your coffee pot, it will work. Traditional moka pots are made of aluminium, which is why they don't. I have one that looks like this: A quick search on Amazon should find you what you want, or enquire at your nearest ...

Shop for stainless pots with a magnet! If it sticks, they will work provided the base is big enough. I found a larger unbranded one (at Goodwill!) with a flared base that works perfectly with my portable induction cook plate. Start at 1500 watts and drop down to 300 as soon as the liquid begins to show up in the upper container, the drop even lower and ...

You can buy an induction adapter. A quick search easily shows a few models. Disclaimer: I have never tried one yet. Legacy gas around here.

You can actually get all-in-one moka pots that plug directly into the mains, e.g.: http://www.amazon.com/Delonghi-EMK6-Alicia-Electric-Espresso/dp/B00009W5F0 I've used one similar to this before, the results aren't bad!

I'm going to start by answering your last question first just for fun. In this site, it says that: Place the pot over a low flame. A low flame increases the brew time, which enhances the flavor. At a later step, you’ll want a slow trickle of espresso instead of a full-force fountain. You would want a nice, long brew time. The flavor will be enhanced ...

As far as my experience with Moka pots, I don't have them on the stove for long. Something that I got in that habit of doing when using moka pots is to boil the water before I put it in the Moka pot, then introducing it to heat, then removing shortly after it starts to percolate. Stumptown illustrates a similar method. As for the induction stove cycling to ...

If you want to stick with your pot and don't want to use an adapter you could also buy a single stove like this one: At least thats what my father uses. Its also nice because you can place it on the kitchen table so you don't have to get up once the coffee is ready. (Not to mention that this is a very handy device for keeping food/beverages warm and on the ...

I had the same problem, and found a simple way to solve it: you might have a pot or pan that actually works on the hob, right? so, just put this one, empty, over the cooktop and then the moka pot inside this pot or pan. It has been working for me so far : )

Doing a quick search, I found this product and it seems pretty nice. That shows me that small induction hobs does exists, so you'll find one easily.

Please allow me to confirm the size thing: i use an alessi 3 cup on a portable induction hob, and have used on one permanent one - the base is about 3 inches - Works beautifully. Have just tried on another built-in induction hob (whirlpool schott ceran) and nothing. Take aways: - the magnet test is good to show potential to be an induction pot - the "...
