Hello, all.  Would anybody recommend using compressed air -- the kind that comes in a spray can and is generally used for blowing dust off of laptops and other electronic equipment --  to get a hand grinder "grounds-free"?  Thanks in advance for your replies.

Because of the bitterant issue associated with canned air, I just use a Rocket now: Click Here (www.home-barista.com)

Never felt the urge. I use the brush attachment on my cylinder vacuum cleaner. Very efficient, cheap and the debris in contained.

Netphilosopher -- I'm familiar with the tilting/liquefaction issue from using compressed air on my laptop.  Of course, I don't actually every "lick" my laptop, so if there's a bitterant issue to speak of, I've remained blissfully ignorant so far.  ;)  The potential aftertaste -- not to mention the imagined toxic effects -- is, in fact, what prompted me to post this question.  Thanks very much for the detailed rundown!

jbviau -- Wow -- thank you for the link.  What a cool-looking device this Rocket is!  The positive reviews on homebarista.com are pretty consistent as well.  And, if I end up taking up photography, it looks like I'll have to buy one less tool.  I'm sold!

Cerridwyn -- Thank you for the tip.  $10 sounds good to me.  Let us know how well it works for all things coffee-related.

al_bongo --  Thanks for the tip!  Brushes are certainly cheaper and more zen. ;)
