Subject: Repairing DeLonghi Caffe Nero
 

Hello everyone.  A few months ago I got a Caffe Nero machine from my local thrift shop for $10.  It was more disgusting than you can possibly imagine so I had to take everything apart in order to clean it out very thoroughly.  The actual espresso maker didn't work either due to a nasty clog that I managed to fix as well.  From then until recently everything has been working fine.

Yesterday I was taking apart and cleaning the little steam nozzle that I froth my milk with like I do every day, and it somehow cracked.  Now all of the steam comes out of the top of the nozzle and I'm not able to froth anything.  I already know what I need to do to fix it.  Somehow I have to repair that crack.  Since it's an area that comes into contact with the hot steam, I was wondering if anyone here could suggest a durable, food grade material to seal the crack.  My first thought was something like JB-Weld or possibly an epoxy but I'm not sure if I'd poison myself, or worse make my lattes taste like crap.  Here are some pictures in case my lack of knowing the terms for these parts has left any ambiguity.

This is what it looks like together:

That part twists off for cleaning though, and I've circled the crack on the interior piece:

Thanks in advance

I'm guessing this forum is dead.  For the sake of posterity, I figured out that the part I wanted was only $1.83 when I googled it.  Problem solved.
