Use and Care
As with all kitchen appliances and items used for food, all parts of Foodini should be cleaned before using for the first time and after every use – wipe down the exterior and clean the interior.

Never use sharp objects for cleaning as this may damage Foodini.
We do not recommend the use of abrasive products or metal scouring pads.
Carefully clean the pins and protruding parts of the arm and capsule bay with care to avoid breakage.

Dishwasher-Safe Parts

All removable parts with the exception of the capsule holders are dishwasher safe. 

If food is difficult to remove in the smaller capsule nozzle sizes, a toothpick or cake tester can be used to assist in cleaning.   When using the dishwasher for capsule nozzles and presses, it’s useful to place them in the utensil basket to make sure small pieces don’t move around in the dishwasher during the wash cycle.

Non Dishwasher-Safe Parts

The capsule holders are not dishwasher safe and must be washed by hand using a soft cloth or sponge.

The outside of Foodini and the non-removable parts inside Foodini should be washed by hand with a soft cloth or sponge.

To Clean the Capsules. Body, Nozzle, Tag & Press

Remove the capsules from the capsule holders. Unscrew the nozzles from the capsule bodies, remove the press. Wash parts separately. The capsule tags can be removed from the capsule body prior to washing if necessary. Occasionally remove and clean the black ring from the capsule press if food accumulates. Do not place the black ring in the dishwasher when it is removed from the capsule press as it may lose its shape when not attached to the capsule press.

You may also want to use brushes that are for cleaning non-disposable straws to clean the rim of the nozzle press and nozzles. 

To Clean Capsule Holders

Please note that you do not need to remove these from Foodini often; only when cleaning is necessary. Do not submerge in water. Take care when cleaning the orange cable. 

To clean the outside of the capsule holders, use a soft cloth or sponge. To clean the inside, we recommend using a bottle brush. If that’s not available, use a soft cloth or sponge. Ensure that capsule holders are completely dry when placing in Foodini.

To Clean the Arm

The Clean Position button moves the arm to the center of the machine providing easy access to the front and back of the arm. The door will open automatically once the arm is in place and prepared for cleaning. Clean the outside of the arm (without disassembling) using a soft cloth or sponge.

When done, shut the door and select “Done Cleaning” from the screen to put the arm back in the home position.

Cleaning Products

Do not use harsh or dangerous chemicals to clean Foodini. It’s best to clean the non-removable parts of Foodini with a sponge or cloth that’s damp but not saturated.
