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!

Hi and welcome.

Just a thought, that machine has gone above and beyond the call of duty over the years, why not treat yourself to a nice SS pot? The time is right as Christmas sales are all over the place. Any of the advertisers here are straight up coffee people and would be glad to take care of you. For example you might want to look at something like this.

Then there are some parts that may fit here but personally, I think you deserve a treat!
