    Behmor 1600 white deposit inside door

    Hi, I've been using my Behmor roaster for 5 years and its has been fine during that time.

    Lately I've noticed a fine white deposit just inside the door of the machine and I'm wondering if it is cause for concern.

    You can see where I've wiped the bottom half off with my finger

    thanks, Pete

    It looks like you have a build up of coffee oils and some of the finer chaff has stuck to it. Buy a bottle of Simple Green All-purpose from Bunnings and give the inside of your roaster a good clean then follow up with a short maintenance cycle as per the Behmor Manual

    I agree with the above from Flynn,
    looks like the roaster has a pretty good glaze on it and could do with a good clean for a start.

    Simple Green is also mentioned in the manual as a good cleaner for the roaster and there is also mention of using it in the "Maintenance and updates" documents too. If you have lost your manual, these are also available on the Behmor.com site: Behmor Manuals and Maintenance Updates – Behmor

    On another point, is that really a jar of muck-oh-nah in the background of your roaster wall picture?

    Please tell me you just use it a convenient sugar jar or something?

    Or it may be like a family member that doesn’t like ‘frothy Milk’ when I make them a coffee even if hold back all the foam. No matter what coffee I use they always just ask for a Nescrapy.

    I can see the jar of the superior stuff has a well sealed lid, I am sure it will taste great....

    If you have any stubborn brown areas that are hard to shift, I have had decent results with simple green and a non scratch scourer, like the ones for non stick pans etc. Doesn't scratch but much easier to shift stuff that is "roasted" on!

    Cheers

    Thanks everyone, I will clean it, after such a long time.

    Re the instant, yes I'm an ecclectic, preferring to take the best each tribe has to offer and meld it. I think of it as a completely different drink to real coffee
