[Homeroast] Behmor Roaster - Cleaning

My recommendation is to follow the directions.

I've been using simple green, followed by a water rinse, for 10 years 
in my roasters.  Vinegar is in my experience totally ineffective for 
cleaning roasting residue.



It may be toxic to consume, but it's been USDA food surface approved 
with a rinse.  Not unlike MANY cleaning products.

I'd never clean my drum with it, but can see zero issue with the 
walls and glass of my roaster.
