Setting Up Your
Coffeemaker
THE QUEST
FOR THE PERFECT
CUP OF COFFEE
1.Unwrap cord and plug the coffeemaker into a
grounded outlet. Make sure to remove all stickers
and packing materials from the unit.
Element 1: Water
2.Place a large cup or mug (10 oz. minimum) on the
drip tray.
Coffee is 98% water. The quality of that water
is as important as the quality of your coffee. If
water doesn’t taste good from the tap, it won’t
taste good in your coffee. Cuisinart includes a
charcoal water filter to remove chlorine, bad
tastes and odors, for the purest coffee flavor,
every time you brew.
3.Remove lid from water reservoir, then lift reservoir
straight up and away from the coffeemaker. Wash
the reservoir with warm soapy water, and rinse.
4.Fill reservoir with water to the 12-cup line and
return with lid to unit (see figure 1).
Water Reservoir Lid
Element 2: Coffee
While coffee is 98% water, all of the flavor
comes from the beans. To achieve the same
great taste you enjoy at a coffee bar, you need
to use the same quality of coffee. If you choose
to grind your own beans, buy them fresh and
whole. Grind only about a two-week supply at a
time, because once the bean is broken, its flavor
degrades quickly.
Water Reservoir
Element 3: Grind
The grind is critical for proper flavor extraction.
If the grind is too fine, over-extraction and bitterness will result. Too fine a grind may also
clog the filter. If grind is too coarse, the water
will pass through too quickly and the maximum
flavor will not be extracted. When grinding your
own beans, we recommend a medium grind.
figure 1
Charcoal Water
Filter
Your coffeemaker comes with a charcoal water filter
that eliminates chlorine, bad tastes and odors from tap
water.
Element 4: Proportion
Inserting the Water Filter
Add 1 scoop of ground coffee (1 scoop = 1
tablespoon = ~6 grams) per cup (1 cup = 5 fl.
oz.). You may wish to adjust this amount according to your personal taste. Do not use more than
14 scoops (14 tablespoons).
2.Soak the filter,
fully immersed
in cold tap water,
for 15 minutes.
1.Remove the filter and filter holder from
the polybags.
3.Press down on
the filter compartment on the
bottom of the
filter holder and
pull toward you
to open.

when brew cycle begins. Both lights will go off when
Keep Warm cycle ends.
6.Allow the filter to
drain completely.
7.Place the assembled water filter
holder into the
water reservoir,
pushing it down
to fit into place
(see figure 3).
NOTE: To start brew time at the same time the next
day, simply make sure the Function knob is on Auto
On and press and release On/Off button once more.
Green Auto On light will go on.
figure 3
SETTING THE AUTO OFF TIME
Turn the Function Knob to AUTO OFF
The default Auto Off time is set to turn the coffeemaker
off two hours after brewing is complete. Follow
directions under SETTING THE CLOCK (in previous
section) to program your coffeemaker to shut off from 0
to 4 hours after brew cycle is finished.
Note: We recommend changing the water filter every
60 days or after 60 uses, and more often if you have
hard water. Replacement filters can be purchased in
stores, by calling Cuisinart Customer Service, or at
www.cuisinart.com.
BEFORE BREWING YOUR
FIRST POT OF COFFEE
MAKING COFFEE
1. Insert charcoal water filter
Follow directions on page 6, for the preparation and
insertion of the filter.
During the manufacturing process, dust can get trapped
in your coffeemaker. We recommend flushing out the
system before brewing your first cups of coffee. Simply
fill the water reservoir and power on the unit. (See steps
#2 and #6 in MAKING COFFEE instructions, below).
DO NOT ADD COFFEE!
2. Fill the water reservoir
a. Remove lid from reservoir, then lift reservoir
straight up and away from the coffeemaker.
b. Fill reservoir with water for the number of cups
you are brewing and return with lid to unit
(see figure 1).
Once you’ve done that, brew your favorite coffee and
get ready to enjoy Cuisinart at its best!
NOTE: If water gets under the coffee tank or water
reservoir, it will end up in the drip tray.
PROGRAMMING YOUR
COFFEEMAKER
3. Set preferences
Push the 1–4 Cup button if you are brewing fewer
than 5 cups.
Setting the Clock
4. Add the ground coffee
Insert a #4 paper filter or permanent filter into the
filter basket. Be sure that the paper filter is completely
open and fully inserted in the basket. It may help to
fold and flatten the seams of a paper filter beforehand.
Add 1 scoop (1 tablespoon = ~6 grams) of ground
coffee per cup. Adjust the amount according to taste.
When the coffeemaker is plugged in, 12:00 will appear
until you set the time.
Turn the Function knob to CLOCK
Hold down the Hour or Minute button until the clock
begins flashing. Press either button to select the desired
time. Hold buttons down to scroll through the digits, or
press and release to advance one digit at a time. When
scrolling, the numbers will advance slowly and then
speed up, so as number displayed approaches the
desired time, press and release to advance one digit at
a time. Be sure the PM indicator is on if a PM time is
desired.
SETTING THE AUTO ON TIME
When you turn the Function knob to PROG, it displays a
previously selected Auto On time or the default time
(12:00pm).

NOTE: The maximum capacity for ground coffee is
14 scoops (14 tablespoons) for this coffeemaker.
Exceeding this amount may cause overflow if the
coffee is too finely ground.
Decalcification
Decalcification refers to the removal of calcium
deposits that form over time on the metal parts of
the coffeemaker.
5. Before brewing coffee
Make sure the water reservoir is on the unit and the
reservoir lid is on the reservoir. Plug into an electrical
outlet.
For best performance from your Coffee on Demand™
Coffeemaker, decalcify the base unit from time to time.
The frequency depends upon the hardness of your tap
water and how often you use the coffeemaker. The
flashing Clean light will indicate when you should clean
your coffeemaker.
6. Power unit on
Turn the Function knob to Brew, press the on/off
button, and the blue indicator light will turn on. Or,
set the Auto On function (see above) and the green
indicator will light.
NOTE: Before decalcifying your coffeemaker, remember
to remove the charcoal water filter from the water filter
holder located in the water reservoir.
7. After brewing
When the brewing cycle has completed, five beeps
will sound.
If the Clean light begins to flash when the coffeemaker
is turned on, it is telling you that the calcium buildup is
interfering with the functioning of your coffeemaker and
the flavor of your coffee. To clean, fill the water reservoir
to capacity with a mixture of ¹⁄³ white vinegar and ²⁄³
water. Press the Clean button. When the self-clean light
glows, turn the coffeemaker on by pressing the
on/off button. The Clean light will shine steadily. The
coffeemaker is now in Clean mode. One cycle should
be sufficient to adequately clean the coffeemaker. When
the cycle is completed and the five beeps sound, the
coffeemaker will shut off. Turn the coffeemaker on to
see if the Clean light continues to flash. If it does, turn it
off and then repeat the cleaning procedure with a fresh
solution of vinegar and water.
NOTE: The dispenser light illuminates the cup area
when you press the lever to pour coffee into your mug.
CLEANING AND
MAINTENANCE
Always turn coffeemaker off and remove the plug from
the electrical outlet before cleaning.
Lift up the reservoir cover. Remove and discard the filter
and ground coffee.
WARNING
Caution: The coffee reservoir may contain hot coffee.
Allow to cool before lifting.
If the Clean light no longer flashes, turn the coffeemaker
off and then run one cycle of fresh cold water through
the unit before using the unit again to brew coffee.
Remove the brew basket, coffee reservoir and drip tray.
These can be washed in warm, soapy water and
rinsed thoroughly, or cleaned in the upper rack of the
dishwasher. Dry all parts after use.
Do not put any water in the unit once the filter basket and
coffee reservoir have been removed. Wipe the area under
the reservoir with a damp cloth.
Neither the reservoir lid nor the reservoir should be put
into the dishwasher. Clean them with a damp, soapy,
non-abrasive cloth and rinse thoroughly. Do not dry
the inside of the water reservoir with a cloth, as lint
may remain.
Do not use any scouring agents or harsh cleansers on
any part of the coffeemaker.
Never immerse base unit in water or other liquids. To
clean base, simply wipe with a clean, damp cloth and
dry before storing. Fingerprints and other blemishes on
the housing can be washed off with soap and water or
a nonabrasive cleaning solution. Never use rough,
abrasive materials or cleansers to clean the warming
plate. Do not dry the inside of the water reservoir with a
cloth, as lint may remain.
Maintenance: Any other servicing should be performed
by an authorized service representative.
