This question already has an answer here:
I used moka pot (bialetti) for the first time then I rinsed it with tap water and let it on the bench.
One week later when I took it to make coffee I saw the botom-most part of the moka pot which was molded. It was something like turqoise color. Then I washed it with with detergent. What I saw afterwards was terrible. It was like I was using it for years. Roughnesses occured on the surface and there are lots of partially distributed spots that I can not wash away.
I want to ask you did someone happen to something like that ? Is it my fault that I did not dry it myself and this happened ? Can it be the cause of a non-original product or maybe it happened just because it is almunium and wet?
