BS stands for Bodum Santos :) The mouth of this thing is rather small, I have the electric model and I am thinking... yeah I know dangerous move there.. that the rest of their models are the same. anyways.... One brews their coffee, and can swish out the rest after their brewing etc etc but eventually Im thinking oils and whatnot are going to build up in this thing and possibly alter the taste of the coffee. I can't figure out a way to get my hand down in that gadjet to clean it out, my knuckles just wont crunch together enough to form a hoof I guess... anyone else have any ideas what I can do to give it a good cleaning from time to time? I know there are chemicals that do great jobs but don't we need to give it a good hand scrub from time to time? I have a bottle brush but it just doesn't seem to really get everything.
Aaron, Oxo makes a great bottle brush. Cylindrical sponge screws on the end. The handle will hold soap, if you want. Ten or 12 inches long altogether. It won't get into openings that are too narrow. But it works on my thermos, coffee pot, and drinking glasses. Got it at target for 4.99. Brent Roasting in an SC/TO For drip/moka/presspot brew <Snip>
Just cleaned the glass pot of my Melita with Cafeza solution. Let it sit for a few hours, and scrubbed with a long handle dish washing brush. No need to put my hand in. Even though I rinse it right after using it, the oil still built up. PeterZ Aaron wrote: <Snip>
I would like to recommend an electric vac pot made (maybe, no longer) by Black&Decker called "The Infuze". You might find one for about $30 on various odd-lot sites. It is a straight-ahead piece with a wide enough opening to get your hand in. Also, the funnel tube screws off for easier cleaning. I find it to be as good as, if not better, than the Bodum...
