Fans of the original will scratch their heads and say, Why bother? Bialetti's classic Moka Express stovetop espresso maker, a fixture in Italian kitchens since it was invented in 1933, has just been joined by a revamped new model. Dama—which means "lady" in Italian—has a more rounded, contemporary shape and is easier to handle, thanks to the heat-resistant polycarbonate plastic handle. But it works exactly the same way: After hot water is boiled in the base, it percolates up through a filter basket filled with ground coffee to create a deliciously dark brew ($30; 800-421-6290).
