Subject: Rocky cleaning timetable?
How often should Rocky be disassembled and cleaned? I go through a
pound every 10-12 days or so. But it seems to me that the TIMESPAN, not
VOLUME, would be the important factor (that is, when the oil residues
become rancid enough to affect the flavor). And I can't say that I've
noticed the coffee tasting any different after cleaning it, anyway.
Also, is Grindz really a viable substitute for disassembly and manual
cleaning?

It's a general purpose household liquid cleaner, supposedly "formula
no. 409". Real handy for cutting through greasy grit and grime.

Yes, Grindz IS a great substitute

BUT you need at least a can of 'compressed air', a bristle brush and
a vacuum cleaner with a hose to do it right.

Then wipe what you can get to with some 409 then with a damp rag.

It'll look new again.


once every 6 months or so?

Some folks say that white rice works, but take a look at my review of
Grindz- I have before and after pics of the burrs. The stuff really
works. Whether it is worth it is for you to decide. One scoop should
do it for a grinder the size of Rocky.

How often? If you can't tell the difference after a cleaning, then
less often... ;-)

Looks like there is some Grindz in the burrs after you are done.

How does it taste?

A suggestion :
Such pictures are much more useful if taken with the same lighting and
position. It's not too tough. Thanx.
