PS At your profile here, I see that you have Mahlkönig K30 Vario which is a totally different grinder to Vario Home.
Apologies! Error on my part! I have the Mahlkonig Vario Home!
The Mahlkonig website only mentions Ceramic Burrs, not metal! Whenever I have removed the hopper, and looked inside, I have seen the top of something dark grey metal?! Is this the upper burr, or are the burrs below this? Will take a photo when I'm home tonight!
As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.
Just a word of caution: You must have the hopper empty, you should grind all the remaining coffee beans between the burrs and the sliders should be all the way down to coarsest settings, before to start taking the top burr carrier out.
