Cleaning the Storz & Bickel Plenty is easier than you might expect, thanks to an isolated airpath and an easy-to-disassemble upper unit. Just be aware that several pieces of the Plenty, particularly the coil, can get hot during regular use. Make sure to let the vape cool down before you clean it, if you’ve been using it recently.
Which parts you clean, which you can leave
The Plenty’s base unit doesn’t need much cleaning, but if it gets dusty, you can wipe it down with a soft cloth. Turn it upside down every once in a while and give it a good shake to knock loose any old herbs inside. Our cleaning will instead focus on the filling chamber, coil, and mouthpiece, which require a bit more maintenance than the rest of the vaporizer.
The upper segment
When taking apart the coil and cooling unit, it’s easiest to start at the top. The mouthpiece should easily wiggle free from the silicone tube at the top of the coil. Similarly, the coil should twist free of the silicone tube at the bottom, where it meets the black plastic. Use the handle of the brush to push out the upper screen from the filling chamber cap, working your way around the edges to pop it loose from the plastic.
The lower filling chamber
Remove the metal filling chamber cylinder from the orange housing by pushing on the edges from underneath. You can use your thumb to easily push the screen out from the cylinder.
Soak it all
You can soak the metal pieces -- the coil, filling chamber cylinder, and screens -- in isopropyl alcohol until they’re nice and clean. Soak the tubing sections in warm, soapy water only. Storz & Bickel says you can soak the plastic parts in isopropyl alcohol for up to an hour if they’re really grungy, but warm, soapy water works just fine for light cleaning. If you do soak them in alcohol, we recommend no longer than 10 minutes. Once everything has been thoroughly soaked, make sure to rinse it in warm water to remove any remaining soap or isopropyl alcohol, then let it dry completely.
When you’re putting everything back together, start from the bottom and assemble it in reverse of how you took it apart.
Pop the screen back into the filling chamber cylinder, then line up the three notches on the cylinder with the gaps in the housing, and click it into place. You can work the screen back into the upper portion of the filling chamber by working your thumb around the outside until it pops back into place.
Use the shorter tubing section to connect the coil to the top of the chamber cap, and the longer section to attach the mouthpiece to the other end of the coil.
