I've tried white rice in a low-end burr gringer and in a Solis
Maestro,and minute rice in a Rocky. The white rice worked great in
those grinders. I first tried rice for cleaning the low-end grinder as
an act of despiration. The grinder clogged and I could not figure out
how to easily take it apart. A google search suggested rice. Magic!

The minute rice hasn't worked as well in the Rocky. I now occasionally
see white specs in the beans I grind for espresso. Maybe I'll try
white rice or maybe some legume.

I like Dave's suggestion for a vacume cleaner and compressed air. I
tried and liked compressed air for cleaning the rocky, and will also
use a vacume cleaner next time.

Randy has an excellent photographic demonstration of Grinz in a Rocky
IIRC. Now, if only some enterprising altie would do a similiar
experiment with rice and/or a few other things.


All the best,
Larry

Also have a vacuum with a hose
and a can of "air" to complete the job.
