The cuisinart DBM-8 Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill coffee grinder is a stainless steel electric countertop grinder with an 227gr. plastic coffee bean hopper and 32-cup equivalent plastic grind chamber. Cuisinart has designed the DBM-8 with few removable parts for cleaning or storage purposes. As a result, to take apart your DBM-8 coffee grinder, you simply need to remove the bean hopper and grind chamber and separate any attached parts from these pieces.

  1. 1

    Turn off and unplug your cuisinart DMB-8 coffee grinder.

  2. 2

    Grasp the coffee bean hopper by its sides or top and carefully twist the container counterclockwise until it unlocks from the grinder. Lift it from the grinder.

  3. 3

    Remove the lid from the hopper, if you haven't already, and set it aside. Unscrew the grinding burr from the bottom of the hopper. Set the pieces aside.

  4. 4

    Pull the grind chamber from the grinder and remove the chamber lid. If you have the scoop stored inside the chamber, remove it. Set the pieces aside.

  5. 5

    Clean or store the grinder body and parts.

Tips and warnings

  • Always use light to moderate pressure when removing the coffee bean hopper, as the plastic container can easily crack or break if twisted with too much pressure.
  • If you're trying to operate the grinder without the grind chamber in place -- stop trying. The grinder won't operate without the hopper and chamber installed.
