[Homeroast] Question On Rancilio Grinder

Greetings --

Cleaning a grinder, yes, for sure, regularly.

Changing burrs?  Maybe I need to.  I thought the metric was whether the
distribution of the grounds is uniform and to your preference?  Not an
arbitrary period of time or number of pounds?

What is the indication of worn out burrs?

Best regards,
Howard
