The lid button gives you quick access to a few simple commands for your bin:
- Press and hold for 3 seconds: to unlock your bin
- Double-tap: to start or stop a Dry & Grind cycle
Your bin comes with a lid lock designed with safety in mind. Here are a few tips on how to use it:
Any time your bucket is hot (above 140°F or 60°C), the lock will automatically turn on.
Kid & Pet Lock
You can set the Kid & Pet Lock in the Mill app so each time the lid closes, it locks. In the app, under Settings, choose Device and you can toggle the lock on or off. Learn more here.
Unlocking your bin
Press and hold the lid button until the lock icon disappears (about 3 seconds).
You can add kitchen scraps while Dry & Grind is running
Press and hold the lid button to unlock your bin and add more kitchen scraps right on top. Your bin may automatically add some extra Dry & Grind time for your new scraps.
Start/Stop Dry & Grind from the lid button when Kid & Pet Lock is enabled
You’ll first need to override the lock. Then you can double tap the lid button to start or stop a Dry & Grind cycle.
