CONGRATULATIONS! You are the owner of
™
by MR. C FFEE.
This unique appliance has been designed to provide you with excellent tasting
iced tea quickly and conveniently.
®
Our specially designed steeping basket keeps tea immersed in hot water
to extract the full flavor from your tea. The tea then drops down into the pitcher
filled with ice to chill. As a result, you get consistently great tasting, freshly
brewed iced tea every time.
This iced teamaker will automatically shut off when the brewing is completed.
When the tea is all gone, the pitcher and lid store over the top of the machine
and the cord wraps around the machine to save valuable counter space.
Please read all of the instructions in this booklet carefully before you begin
to use this appliance. Proper care and maintenance will ensure the long life
of this appliance and its trouble-free operation. Save these instructions
and refer to them often for cleaning and care tips.

To maintain the quality of all parts and minimize tea stains, we recommend
washing the pitcher, pitcher lid, steeping basket and lid with warm water
and a mild detergent, regularly. THESE ITEMS ARE NOT DISHWASHER SAFE.
Hard water can leave whitish mineral deposits inside the pitcher and steeping
basket. Tea and coffee discolor these deposits. To remove, fill the basket
and pitcher with warm white vinegar and let it soak for about 20 minutes.
Do not use harsh, abrasive cleaners. They will cause scratches which
can lead to breakage.
This unit must be delimed when you begin to notice an increase in steaming
or if the pumping action stops before all the water has been pumped out of
the machine.
The frequency of cleaning depends on the hardness of water used.
Listed below are the suggested cleaning intervals.

To maintain the quality of all parts and minimize tea stains, we recommend
washing the pitcher, pitcher lid, steeping basket and lid with warm water
and a mild detergent, regularly. THESE ITEMS ARE NOT DISHWASHER SAFE.
Hard water can leave whitish mineral deposits inside the pitcher and steeping
basket. Tea and coffee discolor these deposits. To remove, fill the basket
and pitcher with warm white vinegar and let it soak for about 20 minutes.
Do not use harsh, abrasive cleaners. They will cause scratches which
can lead to breakage.
This unit must be delimed when you begin to notice an increase in steaming
or if the pumping action stops before all the water has been pumped out of
the machine.
The frequency of cleaning depends on the hardness of water used.
Listed below are the suggested cleaning intervals.

illuminate to let you know the machine is brewing. When the machine
has pumped out all the cleaning solution, the unit will turn itself
off automatically and the indicator light will go out.
7. Remove steeping basket and discard contents of pitcher.
Rinse pitcher, steeping basket, and lid thoroughly with water.
8. Repeat Steps 1 through 8 with clean water only (no cleaning solution)
to rinse out the machine.

solution. When completed, wash pitcher, steeping basket, and lid with
mild detergent and rinse thoroughly.
10. If a normal brewing flow rate is not achieved, repeat the cleaning
procedure.
Using Vinegar:
1. Pour 1 quart of undiluted white household vinegar into the water reservoir.

3. Place the steeping basket with lid into the pitcher and slide it under the
machine. The pitcher must be placed snug against the machine
before operation.

of vinegar has pumped into the pitcher, unplug the appliance and allow it
to sit for 30 minutes.
5. Plug the cord back in and turn the machine ON to pump out the remaining
vinegar.
6. When the machine shuts off, remove the pitcher and discard the vinegar.
7. Fill the pitcher with clear tap water to the water level marked on the pitcher

Pitcher Cleaning
Hard water can leave whitish mineral deposits inside the pitcher.
Tea and coffee discolor these deposits. To remove, fill the pitcher with
hot white vinegar and let soak for about 20 minutes. Do not use harsh
abrasive cleaners. They will cause scratches which can lead to breakage.
Helpful Hints
Fresh tap water should be used in the machine at all times.
DO NOT USE HOT WATER.
Use only genuine MR. C FFEE® 8-12 cup basket filters
for best brewing performance.
Avoid using chemically softened water whenever possible. The use of
chemically softened water can inhibit proper filtration. This will affect the
beverage flavor and will cause a long drip time from the steeping basket.
