Question about Bialetti Mukka Express

1 Answer

My bialette does not boil all the water to the top!!!!!

I've changed the gasket multiple times, but only sometimes has the bialetti made a full chamber of coffee without hardly any water in the bottom chamber. I use a steady heat of medium high. I've tried different coarsenessess of coffee. Sometimes it works well, but most times, I hardly get any coffee from it, with half the water staying in the bottom. It took 20 minutes for only a small amount of coffee to boil to the top. I also thoroughly clean all the parts after I use it. I know another person who has this same problem. I've asked the coffee place where I had bought it, and they told me to clean the stem of the strainer and I did, but no change

Put some vineger in it and heat it up, like a flushing and then rinse out thoroughly. See what that does for you.

There is a valve in the compartment where you place your fresh, cold water. This valve must not be covered as it is necessary in building up steam pressure to push the brewed espresso upwards. Also, most stove espresso makers have a rubber type gasket that is usually placed on the base of the upper part of the maker. Check that you have a gasket.

Hello! I change the rubber sealer to my Bialetti 12 cup yesterday and since then the water stays in the bottom and does not rise to the top. The sealer is properly put in. I have not done anything...


This happened to me, too....the gasket needs to be broken in so that it seals properly, which will happen once it's been used several times. In the meantime, just tighten the pot together extra tight and that will help to seal the gasket properly. After several uses, you won't have to tighten it so much and can go back to how you've always done it. I hope this helps!!

I do not supect the basket just make sure it is not blocked with limescale or other debris as this will reduce the flow of steam through your coffee grounds.
if this is ok then check the pressure release valve on the lower chamber it may be open or defective see if steam is coming out of it when your use your machine if you do not get pressure in your lower chamber it can not lift all the water to the top.
i do not know if the pressure release valve is a replaceable part.

Barely any coffee rises to upper chamber after cooking


It's the gasket!!!!! Store the pot with the two parts screwed TIGHTLY together for about a week. Tighten it up as the new gasket compresses. Problem solved in two weeks or less. Also cook on medium to low heat. High flame seems to make the problem worse.

How much coffee?


Fill it as full as you can with fine ground coffee. I cut the resulting brew with an equal amount of boiling water. Called an "Americano" in Italy.

Bialetti sputtering after gasket replaced


Flame is too high and the top is not screwed tightly enough to the bottom. Also make sure there is enough fine ground coffee in the funnel.
