Do you think the cappuccino maker can be used for general
jewelry steaming? A steam cleaner is one of those pricey items
I haven’t acquired yet, but my S.O. (Significant Other) has one
of those machines! I don’t think she’d let me take it out to
the studio, but she might let me use it! I don’t drink coffee
in any form, so I might have her give me a lesson on it!
it would work fine i suppose. i believe it is charles
lewton-brain who suggests just that in his book “cheap thrills”.
with most cappaccino makers, you put a stopper whre one would
usually put the espresso. the ‘stopper’ is marked 'steam only’
and is most always misplaced in a utensil drawer somewhere.
being a coffee drinker myself, i’m hesitant to use my morning
shrine to derouge jewelry. the backsplash could be a little
if you found one at a garage sale(if i were you, i’d leave the
S.O.'s alone), it would probably be a great sub for a steamer.
the heating element may burn out quickly, so i would suggest to
use it for short durations. don’t leave it on all day.
cappaccino is made in a few minutes. though it may be perfectly
safe to leave it on as long as there is water in it.
