Majority of the Moka pots you find today are aluminium.
Actually, the very first Moka pot created was actually made of aluminium. This stuff was picked as the base of these gadgets because of its capability to gain and lose heat fast.
It was also picked due to its versatility and affordability.
Aluminium provides Moka pot brands with the chance to sell a big range of colour combos.
Aluminum Moka Pot vs. Stainless Steel
But over time, stovetop espresso experts have realised that just because aluminium was the primary choice, it does not mean it is the top choice.
Top Moka brands like Bialetti still generates aluminium Moka pots, but they have also shifted their target to new and better premium stainless steel stovetop espresso makers.
This makes them much more perfect for the new day kitchen with a glass induction stovetop.
Another huge difference between the 2 models is durability and heat. Aluminium tends to lose heat quite fast. Meanwhile, stainless steel remains its heat for a longer period of time.
