X-1 Mini Cleaning Guide and Video

Watch the video for an overview of setting up your X-1 Mini and follow the guide below for step-by-step general instruction.

Cleaning the X-1 Mini Pro can be done in-place without complicated processes or special tools. Simply rinse between recipes if needed, or do a deep cleaning by removing the parts by hand and cleaning like any other kitchen equipment—wash, rinse, sanitize.

Disassembly and Cleaning the Parts

  1. With the machine “ON” and all components still assembled, press the SINGLE button and allow the press rod to extend. Once extended, lift the grinder to the “Up” position to stop the press. Clean the press rod with a wet cloth then wipe dry. Press the STOP button to retract the press rod.
  2. Press the power switch to the “OFF” position, disassemble the grinder and place parts aside. For detailed disassembly instructions, follow the steps in the “Assembly” section of the manual in reverse.
  3. We recommend rinsing the grinder in the “Down” position while the press chamber and an empty juice container are in-place. The dirty water will collect in the juice container. Doing this step now will make cleaning the machine easier.
  4. Remove the press chamber with moving platen and juice container.
  5. Take all parts to sink for washing and follow local health regulations for cleaning. This usually involves washing, rinsing, and sanitizing.

  2. Rinse surface with clean water.
  3. Sanitize surface using a sanitizing solution mixed at a concentration specified on the manufacturer’s label.
  4. Place wet items in a manner to allow air drying.

To Deep Clean

Depending on your cleaning procedures and produce build up over time, you might need to detail the equipment to remove build-up.

  • We recommend soaking removable parts (all except the hopper) in a solution of 3 oz of Lime-B-Gone per gallon of hot water (manufacturer’s recommendation for utensil cleaning) for a maximum of one hour.
  • Rinse and scrub with a cleaning brush to remove any remaining residue.
