Question about Gaggia MDF Electric Burr Grinder
How can I clean my Gaggia Household Coffee Grinder?
For parts you can see, use an artists paintbrush. If you want to clean the internals, grind some panko breadcrumbs or raw rice grains, then run some coffee through it a few times before using.

Easiest way without disassembling the burrs themselves:
1) remove the coffee bean hop by peeling the 2 rubber grommet
2) unscrew 2 small bolts underneath
3) the burr becomes partly visible
4) scrap the coffee/oil/gunk
5) use a handheld rocket air blaster, like those used in camera lenses, to blast into the burr and hard to reach places
6) remove bottom plate (4 screws), rotate the white round plate in the bottom to move the burr grinds. Repeater step 4) & 5)

I have never used anything harder than a nylon brush on my grinders and usually use a cheap acid brush available at your hardware store.
Some people do use rice, but I don't know if that might gum up a machine. Should you use converted rice (already steamed)?, brown, ? white? .
On a decent grinder, Gaggia MDF and up, I would use Grindz by Urnex.
Panko will have odd oils on it and perhaps unususal flavorings as well.
