  • RDT haters look away now

    Anyone found a good cheap supplier of small food safe spray bottles for RDT?

    I just bought some atomisers that looked okay from eBay.

        I bought mine from the Reject shop for $2 each (I think). It's a small carry-on travel spray bottle.

          Gets me every time Mal, pretty obscure and seldom discussed.

            Wouldn't vapour far enough away from steam wand be enough to get ya going?

              That's what I do. A short, gentle burst of steam into the beans, held about six to eight cm from the tip of the wand. Quick, easy and works very well for me.

                I've done this too - works well

                  Thanks for the tip. Was getting annoyed with static on the Lido 3. Short burst of steam on beans prior to grinding completely fixes it.

                    Ok so everyone else (especially other Linea Mini owners with 2 bar of steam pressure) take note: if the container of beans is within about 20cm of the steam nozzle you will next see your individual beans in Earth's orbit.......

                      Does this mean the steam delivery from the U-BEAUT Linea Mini is an "all or nothing" blast that cannot be contolled other than turning it on/off ???. For the price of one of these units I would expect better.

                      When I use this method on any of my machines, I only crack the valve open a little way, so that as I said above, a brief gentle shot of steam that is applied. With any of them I could blow the beans out of the cup easily - IF I was stupid enough to turn the steam on full.

                        LMLM is not an all or nothing steam valve
