Step Four: Place on a stove top on LOW heat for a consistent brew.
Aluminum Vs Stainless Steel Stovetop Espresso Makers
There are two types of popular stovetop espresso makers, stainless steel and aluminum. So, the question is which do you go with? Well it depends on your stovetop.
Stainless steel espresso coffee makers, like the MILANO Stella Aroma can be used on all types of stove top types. This includes gas, induction, electric coil and propane stovetops.
GROSCHE aluminum moka pots are high quality and come in a variety of modern colours, but if you have an induction stovetop they are probably not the choice for you.
We recommend that people do not use an aluminum stovetop espresso maker on induction stoves because the material does not heat properly.
Both moka pot types are easy to clean but we also recommend that they are hand washed.
