The relatively small size of a grinder and the presence of blades makes the cleaning process slightly tricky. Fret not, we’ve got you covered with this easy to execute step-by-step process.

Remove the blade, clean it with vinegar and put it back. You must seek professional help to remove the blade.

Step 1:

Put 1/4th cup of rice in your blade grinder and grind for about a minute, or until the rice is crushed to powder. The leftover particles will cling to the rice, leaving just a thin dusting of rice flour.

Step 2:

Dump out the rice flour. Check for any foul smell.
