How to Take Apart a Cuisinart Coffee Grinder DBM-8

The Cuisinart DBM-8 Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill coffee grinder is a stainless steel electric countertop grinder with an 8-oz. 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.

Step 1

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

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 5

Clean or store the grinder body and parts.
