General and Safety information
Use common sense and don't do anything like immerse it into water, plug it into the wrong voltage or try and operate it without the hopper.
Setting the grind size
Turning the hopper sets the size of the ground coffee. The small dot is fine grind (normally for espresso brewing), the middle size for filter machine brewing and the large dot gives a coarse size for plunger brewing (French press) - (more on brewing here). Only change the size of the grind when the hopper is empty, otherwise you might wedge a coffee bean or two in the burrs.
The best way to control the quantity is to keep the grinder empty and use a standard coffee measure (7g) to measure the required amount of coffee beans into the hopper. It's best to keep the coffee beans in an airtight container like the Coffee Roasting Co. glass jar (never leave the coffee in the hopper - it will oxidise and go stale). The control mechanism is a timer - turn it to a number one or two larger than the number of measures: for example if you put in three measures of coffee beans, turn it to four. Always let the timer and grinder "run out" - forcing the timer to zero when it has finished grinding can damage the mechanism in the long run. It also ensures that the burr mechanism clears of all coffee. Don't grind more than 100g in one session to prevent overheating.
Unplug the grinder. Turn the hopper anticlockwise to the stop and lift it. The grinding ring can be removed and is best cleaned with a soft-bristle brush. The grinding mechanism has a safety friction clutch that saves the motor if any solid object gets wedged in the burrs. Remove any such object in this way too. To remove coffee oils from the burrs grind a measure or two of white rice occasionally. The plastic parts can be cleaned with a slightly damp cloth.
The grinder carries a one year guarantee from date of purchase, subject to it being used properly of course.
