Your Moka pot is just fine. That little amount of water that's left in the
bottom is intentional to help keep the bottom from going dry and over
heating, just like a vacuum pot. Hence, the gurgling and sputtering, which
tells you "It's time to take me off the fire."
Mokas are among my favorite brew methods. I have three, including a very
nice 10 cup Stainless Bialetti. It leaves water in the bottom and sputters

Oh come on... Some things simply aren't even nice to joke about!
On a coffee note, I just got a 6 cup Mokka pot really cheap. The thing is,
it sputters a lot and never seems to get the bottom 1/4" of water. I know
what I paid for it, so I'm willing to deal with it (I have a nice Sweet
Maria's Mokka Pot that I usually use!) But is there a way to help? Will
finer grind/or courser grind help with the sputtering? Any suggestions?
