    I boil mine for about 10 mins and leave them to dry overnight. Then I dry burn until the coil is bright orange. (I have to use a magnifying glass to look down inside for this.) If you wanted to you could boil and burn again to remove any ashy residue, but I've never noticed any effect on the flavour. This seems to bring them up pretty much as good as new.

    No I don't remove anything, just throw them straight in the pot. You don't need to as it's all heat proof. It will smoke a bit and smell nasty at first when you dry burn, but just keep doing it until the coils glow and there's no more smoke. It's a nice simple maintenance routine. I rotate about 4 or 5 so I do them in little batches.

    I wonder if you could nuke them in the microwave for a minute ?? in a 1/2 cup of water
    GT Admin used to do this with his comets coils I think

    Hello GT
    Hi margy ��

    I still nuke a coil in the microwave before and after a dry burn (after is crucial for removing the gunky taste ) One minute on high with an inch of water in the mug ...

    While I have all these experts explaining this, can you please tell me exactly what "dry burn" is? I get the gist of it but I'm still a bit confused. Many thanks folks.

    A dry burn is where you pulse the coil (which is exposed to air, not fluid and hence "dry") until it glows red/orange hot, thereby burning off all deposits (hence "burn") that build up on the coil during use.

    Are you saying....after cleaning and air drying and before filling with liquid, I put it all back together and pulse the button? Basic I know!
