How to clean manual conical grinder

Updated: Jan 17

As we have talked about how often to clean the coffee grinder last time, this article is about how to clean the manual conical grinder. You can check our last blog below:


First, let's talk about the structure of the manual coffee grinder.


The manual coffee grinder is simple and easy to be dismantled. All parts serve the key conical burrs inside the stainless steel cylinder. The burrs are all conical burrs. The material of the burr is ceramic or metal. I will show you by picture.


Manual conical grinder structure

So you can easily understand the inside structure and how it works. And I think this will make easier for you to figure out how to clean the grinds inside.


Why the grinds will be stored inside?


We know that there is oil inside the coffee beans. Every time we use the grinder, the oily powder will accumulate inside some gaps and won't get out forever. The grinds not only hide in the gaps but also the walls of container and hopper.


Some think the static makes the powder stick inside. This is not accurate. The static really will make the powder stick together and stick to the grinders. But maybe after minutes, the static will disappear eventually. The grinds will recover to freedom after that. So the static is not a problem we need concern about when cleaning.


Cleaning methods:


1. Soapy water to clean grinds

  • Wash away the residue powder in the hopper and container which is easy to clean

  • Prepare the soapy water and put inside a basin

  • Dismantle the whole manual grinder which is very easy

  • Put all parts inside the soapy water and brush every gap

  • Pour the soapy water and make new if necessary until it's all cleaned thoroughly without black color release again.

  • Clean all parts with clean water to get rid of all soapy water

  • Dry them by sunshine or electric hairdryer

  • Assemble them


Cleaning result: this is a method that can cleanse the grinder very well.


Caution:

  • Don't miss any parts when assembling again, cleaning, disassembling.

  • Must clean all the soapy water because it's not healthy if eaten.

Remark:

  • Any other material that can be used to clean oil is OK as a substitute for rice.

  • For example, shampoo, liquid detergent, etc.


2. Rice cleaning to clean grinds

  • Put the rice into the hopper and grind for several minutes

  • Collect the flour in the container

  • Disassemble the manual grinder which is easy

  • Put the flour on the parts which contain lots of residues and then rub for a while

  • Brush the flour away which is a bit black color.

  • Wash all parts with water until it's cleaned totally

  • Dry them by sunshine or electric hairdryer

  • Assemble them



Cleaning result: this is a method that can cleanse the grinder roughly. Because the flour maybe can't take all the stubborn oily powder.


Caution:

  • Don't miss any parts when assembling again, cleaning, disassembling


Remark:

Any other material which is dry, safe and oil-free can be used as a substitute for rice.

For example, salt, sugar, wheat.



3. Brush and vacuum cleaner to clean grinds

  • Use a brush to clean the obvious stain and suck them with a vacuum cleaner

  • Disassemble the manual grinder

  • Brush all parts with a brush or cloth

  • Hold the parts tightly and suck with the vacuum cleaner

  • Brush all parts with a brush or cloth

  • Put them together


Cleaning result: this is a method that can only cleanse obvious stain. Can't do anything with the really sticky residue.


Caution:

  • Don't miss any parts when assembling again, cleaning, disassembling

  • Hold tightly when the vacuum cleaner is working



So above is all knowledge about the cleaning of manual coffee grinder. Hope we can help you with your daily coffee journey.
