Any Mukka Express owners out there? I need some advice..
I've had such good experiences on the forums here at Gardenweb I'm hoping this forum can help me with my beloved Mukka Espresso pot.
I received it for Christmas last year and it's been great. Took a little practice to get the coffee as strong as I like. It has never been easy to open - and yes, I am removing the black frothing attachment at the top to release the pressure. ;)
Well... last week after pouring my cup, I left it by the sink to cool. When I came back to wash it out, I popped off the black frother valve and tried to twist it apart: wouldn't move. It is stuck together.
My husband and I have been trying for week to get it apart for a week now. We've tried a rubber grip gloves for extra hold and even spraying Pam into the threads. :(
Any ideas? Am I over looking something obvious here? :o
They are bit pricey and I don't want to put another one on my wish list for Christmas again.
Ideas please? Has this happened to anyone else?
