If you’re like most people, the last thing you want to do is spend your time cleaning your kitchen appliances.

1. Remove the hopper and screw on the top cover.

2. Remove the blade by unscrewing it from the motor shaft (it should come out easily).

3. Pour white vinegar into the hopper and screw on the top cover.

4. Screw on the blade and run the grinder for about two minutes, then remove it.

5. Place a fine-mesh strainer over a large bowl and pour the flour mixture through it, discarding the vinegar. Screw on the topcover and store your grinder in a cool, dry place.

Grinders can be a messy business

If you’re like most people, you probably don’t think much about your grinders before they start producing clumps of coffee grounds. But if you’re like most people, the longer your grinder lasts, the less likely it is to produce grounds that are clumpy and difficult to clean. Here’s how to clean a grinder:

1. Disassemble the grinder as completely as possible. This means taking off the hopper, the burr grinder, and the screen.

2. Remove any coffee grounds that have accumulated on the burr grinder and on the screen. If there’s gunk build up on the blades of the burr grinder, use a brush or a paper towel to suction cup onto the blade and then pull off the gunk.
3. Wipe down all of the parts of the grinder with a damp cloth or a mild detergent solution. Make sure to get into all of the nooks and crannies. Be especially careful around the edges of the hopper and on top of the screen.
4. Rinse off all of the cleaning materials and dry off all of the parts of the grinder. You

Steps to cleaning a grinder

If you’re like most homeowners, your grinder is a fixture in your kitchen. But like any other kitchen appliance, it can quickly become dirty and in need of a good cleaning. Follow these steps to get your grinder clean and ready for use:

1) Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet.
2) Remove any cutlery or food that may be stuck in the blades.
3) Remove the top cover by unscrewing the three screws located on either side.
4) Place a piece of paper towel over the drain opening and place the grinder on top of it. Push down firmly on the center of the cover until it pops off.
5) Use a bowl scraper or knife to remove all debris, food particles and blade residue from inside the grinder. Be sure to scrape around all sides of the grinders blades. (If there is food stuck between the blades, use a plunger to suction cup onto one blade and use a spoon to scrape off the food.)

6) Pour a small amount of water into the bottom of the grinder and turn it on
