Warning: Hot Steam.
Caution: To reduce the risk of scalding, do not open lid when coffee is brewing.
Warning: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not remove bottom cover.

Additional Safeguards
This appliance is for HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY.
DO NOT OPERATE APPLIANCE IF THE LINE CORD SHOWS ANY DAMAGE OR IF
APPLIANCE WORKS INTERMITTENTLY OR STOPS WORKING ENTIRELY.
EXTENSION CORDS
A short power-supply cord is to be provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming
entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer detachable power-supply cords or
extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use. If a longer
detachable power-supply cord or extension cord is used,
1) The marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least as
great as the electrical rating of the appliance, and
2) The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or
tabletop where it can be tripped over, snagged, or pulled on unintentionally
(especially by children).
POLARIZED PLUG
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk
of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If plug
does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified
electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.
