Q: 1st attempt out of the box and the handle started on fire. The base had water, the flame wasn't high enough to meet the edges. I'm saddened that this little pot died so tragically! I'll try again with another. Anyone else experience this?
A: I think the key is to place the base of the moka pot off the center of the burner rather than in the center of the burner. And also, place turn the handle to the outermost aspect of the burner top so it doesn't melt or get too hot.submitted byPartyof5 - 3 years ago
A: Wrap a good deal of aluminium foil on the handle to reflect the heat.submitted byRahul_Does - 2 years ago
A: Hi PeachyHans, I am sorry to hear about your first experience with the Moka. The handle is plastic and should not be exposed to high heat source. Please make sure you place the whole base on the stove, over a medium flame (heat source) and make sure the handle is pointed away for the flame, or to the side of the burner. please contact our customer service department with your experience. 800-421-6290submitted byBradshaw Home - 4 years agoBrand expert

Q: The instructions say, on the first use to make 3 cups of coffee and dump it out/don't drink it.. Seems like a waste of coffee. Does this really need to be done?
A: Yes, part or the moka is the “seasoning” of flavor, these 3 batches help start this. Also, as these items are shipped and moved before getting to you these 3 cup will help clean the insides. Please follow these steps. Hope this helps!submitted byBradshaw Home - 4 years agoBrand expert
Q: Does it work to only make 1 or 2 espresso cups or do you have to fill it with water as shown in the video to get it to work properly?
A: Thank you for your question. For the Bialetti Moka to work properly you will need to fill the water up to the valve as shown in the video. This will yield you 1 large mug of espresso or 6 espresso sized cups. If you have additional questions please reach out to a member of our team and they would be happy to help you.
