I have been roasting with a Salton air popper for a couple months with great results. But, it is starting to get a bit grungy. I have heard of Simple Green or Red Juice being used on larger roaster, but any tips on cleaning a popper?

Edit: Mods, I put this in the wrong section. I obviously meant for it to be in Home Roasting. Could you please move it? TIA

No need to clean it for discoloration.   Look at any well used cooking pan and surprise - it's well seasoned and yes, discolored.   Fuggedaboudit!
