Bialetti Mocha Express 6 cup

sylvan | Sep 29, 2012 10:34 PM

I need help on how to clean my 6 cup Bialetti Mocha Express.
When I take it apart to clean I've been removing the screen/gasket combo.
The gasket fits snugly around the screen and under the thread of the body where
the top and bottom screw together.
My problem is when I remove the gasket, I have to take a sharp knife and pry out the
gasket from its snug position. In doing so the knife makes a dent in the gasket and
obviously isn't a good thing. What am I doing wrong. I'm wondering now if I'm even
supposed to remove the screen/gasket combo and instead just remove the grinds
and rinse off the grinds residue.
How do you remove the screen/gasket combo or do you leave it in place and
just rinse it off??
