Posted Thu Dec 19, 2013, 8:23am Subject: Bialetti MokaExpress (Al): Move to stainless guts?
The funnel in my well-worn 6c. Bialetti corroded through to the point a piece broke off the bottom yesterday.
I see some conflicting reports that one can use the stainless 6c. funnel (there is a difference of 1/16" in diameter), but I don't know how well that would seal. I'd love to replace the filter plate with a stainless one, too, given how the aluminum filter crumbled. I'm already using a silicone gasket.
Any help, especially with specific part numbers or links, is greatly appreciated!
