  • Replacement Safety Valves for Bialetti type Mok Pots

    Does anyone stock- or know of a stockist for a replacement valve for my old Moka pot? I am restoring one and the valve is leaky. I think I have the type that only really works once and then needs replacing. there are some newer valves that have a spring and ball mechanism I think and last much better. Any one have any idea what pressure these valves open at? here is what I am looking for:

    Are they anti-vac valves?

      no- I dont think so. They are safety pressure release valves. Virtually every Moka pot has one screwed into the base part.

          Been using my Vigano stovetop coffee pot on an electric stove for about 6 years. When I first got it I meticulously filled it to just below the safety valve yet was still scared to death of the thing blowing up if I left it too long on the hot ring. Immediately it began to glub and blub Id take it from the hot ring and stand back until it became quiescent.

          That was then! I gradually discovered that as long as one does not too strenuously tamp the coffee in the basket (an unnecessary step in any case), filling the base to above the valve and leaving the pot on a low, low setting after it has "perked", is perfectly safe and gives me several cups of HOT coffee instead of one hot and the rest increasingly cooler.
          So, if my pressure relief valve should ever leak I would be tempted to simply seal it up and forget about it.
