has anyone tried cleaning their Baratza Virtuoso with small grain white rice on the coarsest setting?
I've cleaned with the wire brush but there's still some resids inside.

Do you have acid brush or toothbrush?I think that would work better. Just make sure they're dry. I personally wouldn't clean it with rice though.

I don't think a toothbrush would get in there.
I don't know what an acid brush is, but I'l find one.

Thanks,

I have never used rice and have always used Grindz but have seen many post about rice in the past with good results. Using Grindz ( or rice ) will help to get loose debris and oils out of the grind path but the caked on fines need to be picked at. I use a tooth pick and vacuum and compressed air for deep cleaning  with the upper burr removed. I use Grindz I between deep cleaning.
