Subject: Bialetti Dama funnel
 

Hello

I just bought this guy at a flea market a few weeks ago. The funnel that came with it was about as crusty and gross as you'd think it would be, so I tossed it.

I went on espressozone.com and determined my Bialetti Dama was a 6 cup based on the diameter of the funnel. When I got it in the mail, the bottom part of the funnel was much larger/wider than the old crusty one. The bottom of the old funnel was about the size of a drinking straw. And so when I went to make coffee, the poor thing just sat there because there wasn't enough pressure for the coffee to extract.

So I'm wondering:

  1. Maybe it's not a 6 cup but a 9 cup? The 9 cup funnels look more like the original funnel...

  2. Maybe I got a generic funnel and the Bialetti one would be the right choice. Again, the photos of the 6-cup look identical to my malfunctioning one...

Is there any other measuring I can do to determine the true size of this pot? I've also tried the Bialetti site but their parts department is closed until the 8th.
