This size is good for one person. One of my favorite way to make stove top "espresso". The only reason I don't use mine as much is this is made out of aluminum which is linked to Alzheimer's. Just out of precaution I've switched to a stainless steel pot instead.
Not here to piss on the thread, and I am not a medical professional so do your own research if this is a concern for you.

Target has a very similar pot by Imusa for $5.49:

And a 6 cup stainless steel version for $14.29:

(5% off and free shipping with Red Card)

Bialetti seems to be the more well-known brand for these moka pots, but they don't actually seem to be especially well reviewed.

Also, be aware that "cups" for these is not the imperial cup unit. 3 cups is about the amount of a single small Italian espresso.

I want to emphasize that this is 3 2-oz cups, so a total of 6 oz. For reference, a standard measuring cup is 8 oz. This makes pseudo espresso so for those wanting to make lots of coffee, will either be disappointed or need to make an "americano", which is espresso + hot water.

I have the 6 cup version of this and enjoy using it through my rotation of coffee making. Great product, not a bad price. You need a very fine grind for this.

I don't fault anyone for having an abundance of caution, but I do feel the age of the internet has made everyone extremely afraid of everything while also rewarding perceived "self wokeness". As OP said, you can do your own research and make up your own mind. I prefer listening to the experts and reproducible studies.

I'll still be using my Bialetti.

I would only buy the largest size. We got rid of our smaller one and have a large one now - still barely makes two full (american) size cups of coffee after adding cream

They've been using aluminum ones everywhere in Europe for years and years, and recently they were overtaken by the ubiquitous aluminum capsules of the nespresso system. It seems to me if the alzheimer's-aluminum link was really a concern they would have seen a huge spikes in populations that use these stove-top espresso machines or the nespresso systems, but I don't think that's the case.
