Step by step guide to clean a Bartesian Cocktail Maker
Unplug your Bartesian cocktail maker
In just a few minutes, you’ll be able to remove all the drip trays, shaker tins, and shot glasses with relative ease. Doing so will help ensure that each drink is as fresh and delicious as your last. Having a cleared-out and nicely maintained cocktail machine in your home bar can give you serious bragging points among your friends! So take a few moments to unplug the Bartesian cocktail machine before starting the cleaning process.
Clean the outside of the machine
A damp cloth or sponge can be just the thing you need to wipe off dirt and debris. Properly cleaning a machine with a damp cloth or sponge will increase its life expectancy, as it helps prevent any buildup of dirt that could otherwise cause harmful damage to its surface and parts.
Remove the Capsules and Bottles
Take out any used Bartesian capsules and dispose of them properly. Detach the alcohol and mixer bottles from the machine, and give them a thorough rinse with warm, soapy water. Make sure to dry them completely before reassembling.
Clean the Capsule Holder
Use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe down the capsule holder, making sure to remove any residue or buildup that may have formed during use. If needed, use a gentle dish soap to help break down stubborn grime. Be sure to rinse the holder thoroughly to remove any soap residue and let it air dry before reassembling.
Wipe Down the Exterior
Using a clean, damp cloth, wipe down the exterior of your Bartesian Cocktail Maker to remove any dust or spills. For a sparkling finish, you can use a mild glass cleaner to polish the machine’s surfaces. Be sure to avoid getting any moisture in the electrical components or control panel.
Run a Cleaning Cycle
To clean the internal components of your Bartesian Cocktail Maker, fill an empty mixer bottle with clean water and attach it to the machine. Insert an empty capsule into the holder and run a cocktail cycle. This will flush out any residue from the lines and ensure your drinks taste fresh every time. Repeat this process a couple of times to ensure a thorough cleaning.
Reassemble and Enjoy
Once all the components are clean and dry, reattach the bottles and capsule holder to your Bartesian Cocktail Maker. Plug the machine back in, and you’re ready to mix up your favorite cocktails once again!
The Dos and Don’ts of a Bartesian Cocktail Maker
Do Empty Your Waste Container After Every Use
Your machine will notify you when it’s time to empty the waste container, which should be done after every use. This is important because old ingredients can spoil quickly if they are not removed from the machine immediately after use. Emptying the waste container also prevents any residue from collecting within your machine, which could lead to clogs or other issues over time.
Do Rinse Capsules Thoroughly Before Inserting Them
Before inserting your capsules into the capsule slot on your Bartesian cocktail maker, make sure that you rinse them off thoroughly with hot water or a damp cloth. This helps to prevent dirt and debris from entering the machine and potentially clogging or damaging its internal components over time.
Do Clean Out The Inside Of Machine Regularly
It’s important to regularly clean out the inside of your machine using warm water and a mild detergent to prevent bacteria and mold growth on its inner surfaces. Make sure that you thoroughly dry out the inside of your machine before replacing any components as well, as this will help reduce the risk of damage due to moisture build-up within its interior components over time.
Don’t Put Anything Other Than Capsules Into Your Machine
Never insert anything other than capsules into your Bartesian cocktail maker as this can cause serious damage over time. It’s also important to avoid using any harsh chemicals when cleaning out the interior of your machine as this can corrode its internal components over time.
Don’t Overfill The Water Tank
When filling up your water tank, make sure not to exceed its maximum capacity as this can cause overflow issues during operation which can lead to spills and other mishaps in addition to damaging its internal components over time.
Don’t Leave It Unattended While Operating
Always make sure that someone is present while operating your Bartesian cocktail maker in order to prevent accidents such as spilling hot liquids or leaving it unattended while it’s in operation for too long which could potentially lead to fire hazards or other safety risks if left unchecked.
Following these dos and don’ts is essential for maintaining a healthy and functioning Bartesian cocktail maker for years to come! Keeping up with regular cleaning routines, refraining from putting anything other than capsules into your machine, avoiding overflowing its water tank, and ensuring that someone is present while it’s in operation are all simple steps that go a long way towards protecting both you and your beloved bartending device from potential harm!
So next time you’re enjoying one of those delicious cocktails created by yours truly—the mighty Bartesian—remember these tips for keeping it safe! Happy sipping!
