  1. Do any of you folks use a stovetop espresso pot? I started using one recently and after I rinse the components after each use, there is always a substantial amount of water under the gasket (the rubbery part). I never know whether I should be putting it away with the water there. I contacted the company and they recommended removing the gasket to get rid of the water but doing this too often is probably not a good thing because it will loosen it with time. Or perhaps this is something that users do on a regular basis? Any suggestions from more experienced users?
  2. Dry it on the rack. I've never seen anyone who drinks coffee daily actually put theirs away.
