HOW TO USE
YOUR TURKISH COFFEE GRINDER
you very much for purchasing your Turkish coffee grinder from us. With little care, your grinder can provide
you with many years of service and pleasure. Here are some guidelines that might help you:
Take off the lid
on top (if it is tight, use a twisting
motion and pull it out. Do not use
any pliers or metal objects to pry it out.
This also applies to the bottom canister). Fitting will get better with use over time.
Take out the
handle for the grinder, which is folded inside the upper hopper.
Never use your grinder empty. This can
damage the burrs.
You should never wash
your coffee grinder. However, if you must,
make sure to dry it thoroughly to prevent any rusting.
On first use
grind some “rice” in your grinder to clean any dust that may be in it when it
was manufactured. You may also use a toothbrush to clean the bottom if need be.
Never use steel
wool or abrasive pads to clean your grinder.
You may use the commercially
available cleaning materials for brass to clean the outside.
HOW TO USE YOUR GRINDER
Place your coffee
beans into the hopper and close the
Unfold and attach the handle to the rod in the center of the grinder.
Make sure to have some coffee or spices in the hopper
before you start turning the handle.
Turn the handle clockwise and hold it below your hand/wrist so that you are
pushing down on it while turning the handle – this will make sure that the
handle does not come off (unlike the smaller grinders that are made for spices,
5.5 inch handle on this grinder does not attach to the mill in order to have
the maximum length and strength - the longer the handle; lesser the force
required to turn it – since it is specifically designed for roasted coffee
beans which are very hard). The handle
conveniently folds in half for easy storage in the upper hopper.
On your first use, it will take several
turns before it starts to grind; because the burrs are empty. You may
also need to turn the handle counter clockwise as well to loosen up the
Adjust the coarseness by the screw/bolt at the bottom. The screw on
the side of the grinder is to stabilize the burs in the hopper. It should be tightened but not too tight.
Attach the bottom
canister to the grinder to collect your grind.
