This is an espresso maker which brews vertically ... upwards. Vacuum technology in action! Ultimately low tech, though: add water, add grounds, put it on the heat and at some point later you have a nice tasty pot of espresso.
The Stainless version of their moka pots has been out of stock for a while but is now back in stock with a free pair of Turino espresso glasses ($23.99 value) while quantities last. The deal price in the subject comes from using the WELCOME25 code from signing up for their newsletter, that gets you 25% off your first purchase, the regular price of the 10oz pot is $84.99, $69.99 for the 6oz if a smaller version is preferred. Other users have confirmed that you can get either the free glasses or use the 25% off code. Amazon.ca has the 10oz at $83.99 if you'd rather save $1 instead of 25% off or the free glasses. If you decide to buy directly from Grosche check out their open box section, they have some deals on other items as well including a French Press with milk frother for about $14 after the 25% off, the discount covers your entire first cart so go big.
Grosche also has a retail store in downtown Guelph of all places if you wanted to check it out in person (Coffee & Tea Boutique), it's more of a tea (100s)/coffee(10s) place but they should sell the hardware catalogue items as well.
This stainless steel version of the pot IS COMPATIBLE with induction cooktops, it was basically designed for 'em.
I used their aluminum 9oz version for a few weeks, I liked it and the espresso it brewed well enough but my main issue was that it took 25 minutes to brew a pot on my electric coil stove. This is fine when you can plan ahead a bit for when you want a coffee but that turned out to be a weakness of mine, I was just going to the Keurig machine for immediate gratification until I started cold brewing. Yes, I replaced 25 minute lead time with 24 hours, yet somehow it's still working out.
The aluminum versions are cheaper (both Grosche as well as other brands, Amazon.ca has a bunch for comparison) but don't work with induction and aren't dishwasher-safe, the stainless version is both.
Also, as per the website (I have no idea what some of these are), "you can also use it as a Greca coffee maker, a cuban coffee maker, a stovetop espresso machine, or a Italian style coffee percolator." Can the aluminum ones make that claim? I don't know!
There are also cheaper stainless steel moka pots on Amazon.ca than even the sale price here but the Grosche has 4.5/5 stars, those ones do not and most are only 6 cup, only a few get to 9 and none that I can see go to 10. I'd prefer that it went to 11 but you can't have everything.

(the Grosche pot indicated in the #3 spot is aluminum but the steel ones are in the same listing)
If you decide to buy one and it leaks while brewing, just screw it together tighter, it has a rubber gasket but it does require a solid join. Screw it in tighter and it should be fine.
EDIT: I should probably also mention that every purchase from Grosche provides 50+ days of fresh drinking water for those in need in case that moves any of you dealaholics:
