    Cleaning Expobar machine housing

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    hey Guys,

    Just upgraded from an em6900 to an Expobar Office Leva. Got to say Im astounded by the quality of the unit and the resultant shots, really amazing.

    From you guys experience, is there a good way to keep this thing clean and shiny? as you know it attracts spatters and fingerprints, just not sure what the best way to clean it is.

    cheers

    Gday "turrican".... :)

    Best method Ive found, is to use a couple of decent quality micro-fibre cloths... Use one slightly dampened to remove marks and then immediately follow up with the dry cloth to buff the surface. Works like magic.... ;)

    What Mal said but I dont bother with microfibre if ones not handy.
    Just dampen a cloth with water and wipe over then buff with a dry cloth.

    All the above recommendations are good
    I also polish my machine for extra protection on periodic occasions

    Like you I have an Exbobar, mirror finish.
    After each use I wipe with a damp chux cloth to remove any excess water, then wipe with a micro fibre cloth.
    I have tried using the wipes designed for stainless steel in the past but found that they leave a slightly oily residue, wouldnt recommend.
