...Why is it that my wife never cleans the steam wand...

Posted May 22, 2012 link

some people are just sloppy and lousy at cleaning up.  take my father-in-law...he wipes down the steam wand all the time, but if you look at the back side, where he can't see, there's always left on burnt milk gunk.  you'd think he'd feel it, but no, he doesn't.  so whenever he's in-house, I have to clean the wand before I can use it.

Coffee geek or not, a corncob on the steam wand is about as unappetizing as a dirty fork. We don't have a problem with that in our house. (It helps that the BDB steam wand is easy to clean. Rounded surfaces, shallow seams, articulated arm -- much easier to keep clean than the machine I had before (where the tip was an "acorn nut" with a hexagonal shape, that wasn't articulated, and where the junction between the acorn nut and the wand proper was a crevasse of geological proportions).

Cleaning the filter screen is also easy, especially if we're talking about just running a blank shot afterward. (to backflush or not to backflush; to backflush with water only or with detergent; that's a different discussion)
