MILANO Stovetop Espresso Maker Silver-6 Cups
The Best Stovetop Espresso Maker on the Market
The MILANO moka pot is made from food safe aluminum a non-toxic silicon gasket seal. You can use it on all gas and electric stovetops, it is however not suitable for induction stovetops. The MILANO is the only stovetop coffee maker that features a burn guard on the grip to protect your fingers from touching hot surfaces. In addition, it also features a ‘Made in Italy’ certified safety valve that prevents internal pressure from increasing to a dangerous point.
How to Make Stovetop Espresso Coffee
- Firstly remove the top part and the filter funnel of the coffee maker. Fill the lower chamber with cold fresh water up until the safety valve. Make sure not to fill past the safety valve.
- Then fill the filter funnel with freshly fine espresso coffee grounds. Once that’s done, put the filter funnel back into the lower chamber of the MILANO and screw the top part back on tightly. We recommend the Smooth silver espresso as our favorite coffee for the Milano making Italian style moka coffee.
- Next, put the MILANO on your stove on a low/medium flame setting. Turn the stove down when coffee bubbles up from the filter funnel and into the upper section. When the gurgling sound stops, this indicates that the coffee is ready
- Finally, remove the MILANO from your stovetop and serve. You can drink the coffee as a strong, flavourful espresso or use as a base for a cappuccino or latte.
How to Care for your Moka Pot
They say the older these pots are, the better they work. They can last a lifetime with proper care. Always hand wash them, and never put them in the dishwasher.
The MILANO is not dishwasher safe. In a dishwasher the aluminum will tarnish and turn black, ruining your moka pot. Every 3-6 months or so you should consider changing the silicone seal that is in the pots and the one that maintains pressure in the boiler section to brew the fine ground coffee.
