on using grindz burr grinder alternative
....after i watched a youtube demo of it, a series of other 'how to clean...'' also came up in particular was on cleaning your spice (blade) grinder using plain white rice, both to clean the oils and aborb
any odors...can and will white rice be as good to clean the coffee GRINDER as the product 'grindz'?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2013
Best Answer: I've never used white rice b/c I've never HAD TO! All I can tell you is TRY GRINDZ first b/c it really DOES work! I use to use Grindz EVERY SINGLE TIME I used my grinder. Over time, I methodically studied the oil residue build-up on the burrs. I now use Grindz after NO MORE THAN 4 uses of the grinder. This said, I use a hand-vac to also get the loose grounds out from the shoot after EACH AND EVERY use.
While you don't have to be as strict as I am, I'd still recommend cleaning your burrs frequently. Coffee oils and residues can "kill" your equipment. If you get a "bad bean" or don't clean your equipment often, the residue will build-up. Not only will your coffee not taste good but trying to get your equipment "back to normal" after residue has "attacked" can be exhausting. What you want to do is simply be in a routine of regular Grindz cleanings so your burrs (and taste buds) are happy. I highly recommend also using a hand-vac to regularly clean out the grounds shoot.
Also, Urnex brand makes "Wipz" a product DESIGNED for coffee oil residue. After I use Grindz, I use Wipz to wipe down the grounds bin, hopper and hopper lid. I then use a mild soap and hand wash these parts. Lastly, I use the bristle brush to clean the burr (and, no joke, also use q-tips to literally make it PERFECT). Like I said, my "methods" are probably a bit much but that's just me. Even if you don't use the Wipz, hand vac, q-tips or hand-wash the parts frequently, please PLEASE be kind to your burrs and DO be sure and use Grindz frequently. It's AMAZING!

Approximately, how many cleanings can I get from 1 canister of Grindz?
Sue W on Feb 25, 2017
Best Answer: Hi Sue, Grindz recommends 35 to 40g of 'beans' to clean a household burr grinder. With the 430g canister, you can expect 10 to 12 cleanings. I clean my Breville Smart Grinder about every 3 months, and I still have about half of my canister left after 18 months.

I have used Grindz in the small packets size. The canister is a much better buy. So I'd like to know if the product will stay fresh in the canister? Or will it clump together over time?
A shopper on Oct 31, 2015
Best Answer: Ours seems to stay fresh. Just keep it in a dry place.

Can I use this cleaner for the Rancilio Rocky grinder?
MaryD on Jan 9, 2015
Best Answer: Absolutely! You will just measure out a single dose into the grinder, and since they are pellets, grind away, just like you would the smaller, pre-measured packets. Just be sure to clear through and grind a bit of beans through that get discarded so that the mixture of grounds and Grindz aren't being used to brew with! :-)

Can I use this to clean the Burr Grinder on the Capresso CoffeeTEAM GS?
Juan G on Feb 6, 2014
Best Answer: You can use Grindz as long as you are able to run this product through the unit and then clear it out completely before brewing, as it can expand and make a mess if it comes into contact with water. Provided you are able to stop the brewing process and dump out your basket right after using it, you should be safe to use Grindz.

I bought this product from you about a year ago, then found out I have Celiac Disease (gluten allergy). I called you guys and asked if you had coffee grinder cleaner that was gluten free because GRINDZ says on the label wheat. I was told no. I gave away my $20 container of GRINDZ. Has the product changed to gluten free recently?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2014
Best Answer: While Urnex has changed the formula of Grindz recently, the smaller boxes we offer are still listing wheat ingredients, and so I think we may still occasionally be receiving a mixed supply. I checked our stock of these larger containers, however, and found that the large 430 gram containers (about 30 currently on hand) all list "Gluten Free and Organic" on the label. If you place a order soon for the 430g size, I am sure you will receive a gluten free container, but if it is a few weeks down the line, feel free to give us a call and we can double check the labels of those in the warehouse for this specification. Hope this helps!

A must haveReview by SalSpresso
Easy to use. Put into the grinder as you would with coffee beans and grind. Remove any residue dust and then run some coffee beans and then discard before you start to brew fresh coffee. Secret to great coffee is a clean grinder and a clean coffee maker and fresh beans. (Posted on 12/9/2012)

Grindz WORKS!Review by Herb
I put my burr grinder to rest over 10 years ago because it was too hard to keep clean. I was told to use RICE, what a mess! So when I say Gail demonstrating this GRINDZ product, I thought "why not try it".
Well the outcome was more then I could have imagined. I no longer have the folks where I buy my beans grind them for me, but I do it myself every morning just as I am brewing my latte. What a difference in taste! Love this product, Thanks to Gail and her team! Bravo

Easy To Use, Easy To Clean

Replacing RiceReview by Italiancoffeefan
My grinder paddles broke in less than a year so I was talking to the factory at Baratza about using rice to clean the grinder. They discouraged rice and said no brown rice. Finally they said Grindz is their only recommendation, but rice didn't void the warranty. Rice is cheaper, but Grindz seems much easier overall. Compared to the cost of coffee, what does cost of Grindz matter?

Just what you need to clean your grinderReview by Home Barista Wantabe
Grindz is great cleaning product. I have started using this product about once a week to clean out the stale coffee flavor in the grinder. My only gripe about the product are the lousy instructions on the label. Looking online helped me figure out what I needed to do.

Basically, here are the steps: Place one cap-full of the Grindz pellets into your grinder. Change your grinder setting to somewhere in the middle range (which is about 20 on my Baratza grinder) and grind the pellets until they are completely ground. Throw out the ground up Grindz grounds and place one cap-full of coffee beans in the grinder to clean away any remaining Grindz residue. After that, clean out your Grinder catchbox so you don't leave any Grindz residue in there. Readjust your grinder to your desired setting and that's it ... Your Done!

Easy To Use, Makes coffee taste better
