Topic: Hottop Chaff Collectioin Issue > Under-Fridge (35 lines)
1) From: Michael Wade
The under-refrigerator vacuum attachment idea was passed on to me by Jeffrey 
Pawlan, who designed and produced the CCR modified Hottops.  It fits 
perfectly into the chaff drawer opening and allows you to clean out the 
residual chaff in about 3 seconds and be ready for another roast.  Jeffrey 
found his at a vacuum store, I ordered mine on the web, but darned if I can 
remember who from.
The unit as manufactured is longer than necessary or convenient, and has an 
upward-facing opening.   Some quick surgery with a fine-tooth saw and voila! 
A perfect Hottop accessory.
As long as I'm passing on things I learned from Jeffrey, Windex does an 
incredible job of cleaning Hottop parts.  Especially when sprayed on a 
still-warm part, it really cuts through the oxidized coffee oils.
Cheers all,
