Bialetti Espresso/Moka pot funk

GastronautMN | Mar 14, 2008 09:35 PM

I have a Bialetti Moka stove top pot that every time I clean it gets weird deposits in the reservoir chamber. If it is unable to dry they look gelatinous if it air dries they look like little white crusty dots. I have the aluminum version and I have tried using different soaps or just wiping it out and it doesn't seem to make a difference.

Anybody know what this is? or have a solution to prevent future funk?
