What are the internal parts of this made out of?
I was wondering if anyone knows if they are stainless steel or aluminum?
The classic ones I've seen with a cast aluminum housing appear to have stainless steel internal parts... but I'm not sure.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Just took a look at mine. The pot is aluminum but it appears that the vent and the frother outlet tube are stainless steel.

Thanks for checking that Carol. That's too bad it's aluminum, I try to stay away from aluminum cookware due to the link between aluminum and Alzheimers and family history of same.
Guess i'll be sticking with my stainless steel little stovetop perc , the thought of a cappuccino or espresso was so inviting though!

Although most products of this type which I have seen have cast aluminum housings, Bialetti does have stainless steel stovetop espresso makers, which have the same functional design, in somewhat different shapes - no milk frothing feature (so no one-step cappuccino) and sorry Gina, no cow patterns!

My Bialetti Moka's metal parts are all aluminum, even the filter, except for the hinge pin on the lid. I would expect the Mukka to be of similar construction.

Here's what Scientific American had to say about Aluminum and Alzheimer's Disease, and here's the Snopes article that led me to SA. Here's a fact sheet from the UK Alzheimer's Society, and here's a US Gummint opinion, and here's a Canadian Alzheimer's Association view.

It seemed to me that most of the sites linking aluminum and Alzheimer's had something to sell...

Ressurecting an old thread... We received a Mukka cappuccino maker as a wedding gift (yes, I registered for it!), and have been VERY happy with it. The only problem is that it only makes one at a time! We get a good espresso roast and properly grind it. Sometimes I just get a can of Lavazza brand espresso grounds, since I used to work in an Italian restaurant that used Lavazza beans... I have fond memories of it.

The Mukka works well with soy milk, too... which is all that we had in the house... before we had a baby.
