Read these instructions before using your coffee maker, and keep them safe.
If you pass the coffee maker on, pass on the instructions too.
Remove all packaging, but keep it till you’re sure the coffee maker is working.
Important safeguards
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1.Don’t put the coffee maker in water, don’t use it in a bathroom
or near any source of water, and don’t use it outdoors.
2.This coffee maker should only be used by or under the
supervision of a responsible adult.
3.Store and use the coffee maker out of reach of children.
4.Stand the coffee maker on a firm, level, heat-resistant surface,
close to a power socket, and out of reach of children.
5.Liquid will remain hot for some considerable time after the machine is
switched off. This can present a scald hazard — keep the coffee maker, the
flasks, and the mains lead away from the edge of worktops and out of
reach of children.
6.Route the mains lead so it doesn’t overhang and can’t be tripped over or
caught accidentally.
7.Push excess mains lead into the storage space beneath the coffee maker.
8.Unplug the coffee maker when not in use, before moving and before
cleaning. Let it cool down fully before cleaning and before storing away.
9.Don’t overfill the coffee maker — you’ll spill hot liquid.
10.Don’t underfill it either — you’ll burn out the element.
11.Put the flask(s) on the drip tray before switching the coffee maker on.
12.If you need to stop the operating cycle, press the switch. The light in the
switch will go out. Before adding water or reusing the coffee maker, let it
cool down for 10 minutes.
13.Don’t use the coffee maker for any purpose other than those described in
these instructions.
14.Keep the coffee maker, flasks, and mains lead away from hotplates, hobs,
and burners.
15.Don’t put the flask(s) in a microwave oven (or any other kind of oven).
16.Don’t use accessories or attachments other than those we provide.
17.Don’t use the coffee maker if it’s damaged or malfunctions. If the mains
lead or plug is damaged, the coffee maker must be returned in order to
avoid hazard — see “After sales service” on page 7.
Household use only
Before using for the first time
Wash away any dust that might have gathered inside the machine.
Using the instructions which follow, fill the water tank to the 2 mark and
operate the coffee maker without coffee. When it’s finished, discard the hot
water and clean the coffee maker — page 6, “Care and maintenance”.

The insulated flasks
Unlike most filter coffee makers, this one doesn’t rely on a hotplate to keep
your coffee warm. Instead, it uses insulated flasks. This means that you’re no
longer tied to the kitchen. You can take the coffee with you anywhere in the
home, garage or garden. You can even use it to make tea.
For best results, rinse the flasks with hot water, to pre-warm them before
putting into the coffee maker. Used properly, the flasks should keep your drink
hot and tasty for about half an hour. After about half an hour, chemical
changes in the brewed liquor start to make it bitter.
The lids
To prevent heat loss by evaporation, each flask has two lids. Leave the inner
lids on when making your drink and when drinking it. Put the outer lids on to
keep the liquid hot when you’re carrying it. Keep the flasks upright — they’re
not watertight, though they’re “spill-resistant”, up to a point. The cut-outs in
the outer lids fit over the tabs on the inner lids.
Use good quality teabags, one per flask.
Use medium-ground filter coffee. The amount will vary with the type of coffee
and individual taste. We suggest two rounded teaspoons of coffee per flask.
Our view is that personal taste should rule, not convention. What we do say is
that if you like milk in your coffee, use warm or hot milk, to avoid overcooling
the coffee. To extract maximum flavour from the coffee, it should be cool
enough not to scald or burn the mouth, but hot enough to let the flavour fill
the mouth, sinuses and nose, not just the taste buds.
Bottled water
If you use bottled water, make sure it has no added ingredients, flavourings,
etc., and use “flat” water, not “sparkling”. The carbon dioxide which gives the
“sparkle” will adversely affect the flavour of your drink.
1.Position the coffee maker on a firm, level, heat-resistant surface, close to
a power socket and out of reach of children.
2.Don’t plug it in yet.
Water fill
3.Lift the lid of the coffee maker up and back. It’ll open a bit more than 90
degrees. Don’t try to move it more than this, or you’ll break it.
4.Pour fresh cold water into the upper rear of the coffee maker.
5.Fill to the 1 mark if you’re making one flask, or up to the 2 mark if you’re
making two flasks.
Remember: If you’re making one flask, just fill to the 1 mark. The drip tray
will catch drips and dribbles, but it can’t cope with a whole
flask’s worth.

6.Fill the filter with medium-ground filter coffee. We suggest two rounded
teaspoons of medium-ground coffee per cup.
7.Close the lid.
8.Don’t use the filter for tea. You’ll never be able to remove the tea/coffee
taint from it. There are just too many nooks and crannies.
9.Remove the filter and put one teabag per flask into the filter holder.
10.Close the lid
Tea and coffee together
11.If you want to be really awkward, you can actually make tea and coffee at
the same time, but you’re going to have to put up with instant (or find
somewhere that sells coffee bags).
12.Put a heaped teaspoon of good quality instant coffee in one flask, a teabag
in the other, and use the coffee maker purely as a water heater.
13.Don’t fit the filter, and don’t put anything in the filter holder.
14.Close the lid.
15.Rinse the flask(s) out with hot water, to pre-heat it/them.
16.Put the inner lid(s) on the flask(s), and stand it/them on the drip tray.
17.There are 2 nozzles. If you’re making 1 flask, stand it in the middle, under
both nozzles. If you’re making 2 flasks, stand each one under a nozzle.
18.Plug the coffee maker into the power socket (switch the socket on, if
19.Press the switch. It’ll light up, the water will start to heat, and shortly
afterwards, tea or coffee will start dripping into the flask(s).
20.When brewing has finished, it’ll go quiet, it’ll switch itself off, and the
light will go out.
Done? Unplug the coffee maker from the power socket (switch the socket
off first, if appropriate) and let it cool down fully before cleaning.
More? Let the coffee maker cool down for 10 minutes before refilling.
Important: Opening the lid before the coffee maker has cooled down may
release steam, creating a scald hazard.
21.Remove the outer lid, and drink through the big oblong hole. The little
round hole lets air in and out. If you block it, you won’t be able to drink.
22.Put the outer lid on again if you’re going to leave it for a bit, or if you’re
23.The insulated flask will keep your drink in good condition for about half an
hour. Any longer and it won’t be at its best — pour it away.
24.Don’t reheat coffee or tea — they’ll taste bitter.
25.Don’t pass coffee or tea through the coffee maker again. Apart from the
risk of damaging the coffee maker, the liquid will be undrinkable.

Care and maintenance
Before cleaning or storing away, unplug the coffee maker, and leave it to cool
down fully.
Grease or residues impair flavour. Check that the coffee maker is clean before
use, and clean the filter, filter holder and flasks thoroughly after each use.
Tea and coffee
If you’re intending to use the coffee maker to make both tea and coffee, take
extra care when cleaning. If you stick to one or the other, any residues you
miss will probably be bearable. If you use the coffee maker for both tea and
coffee, the “wrong” residues will ruin the flavour.
The best thing to do, if you’re going to make both tea and coffee regularly, is
to buy two coffee makers.
1.Open the lid.
2.Lift out the filter and filter holder.
3.Put a fingertip in the hole in front of the drip tray and lever it out. Take
care not to spill.
4.Wash the flasks, their lids, the filter, the filter holder, the drip tray, and its
cover in warm soapy water. Rinse thoroughly to remove all traces of soap,
and dry before reassembling.
5.Wipe the surfaces of the coffee maker with a clean damp cloth.
6.Replace the filter holder and filter.
7.Close the lid.
Don’t wash any part of the coffee maker in a dishwasher.
Don’t put the coffee maker in water or any other liquid.
Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaners or solvents.
Scale build-up will cause the element to overheat, reducing its working life. It
may cause the safety cut-out to operate prematurely, switching the coffee
maker off before the water boils. It will also lengthen the brewing time.
To minimise scale build-up, don’t leave water standing in it (e.g. overnight),
and descale it regularly. Use a proprietary brand of descaler suitable for use in
plastic-bodied products. Follow the instructions on the package of descaler.
When descaling has finished, empty the flasks and operate the coffee maker
twice more with fresh water, but without coffee. Discard the water to ensure
that no chemical residues are left in the coffee maker.
In areas of very hard water it may be necessary to descale as often as once a
month, or to use filtered water instead of ordinary tap water.
Safety cut-out
If the coffee machine is accidentally switched on when it doesn’t contain
sufficient water, a safety cut-out will automatically switch it off. If the safety
cut-out operates, unplug the coffee maker and leave it to cool down fully to
let it reset.

Connection to the mains supply
Check that the voltage marked on the coffee maker
corresponds with the supply voltage.
The coffee maker must be earthed. It’s supplied with
three-core mains lead and a 13A plug complying with
BS1363. To replace the fuse, use a 13A ASTA or BSI
approved fuse conforming to BS1362.
The appliance conforms to EC Directive 92/31/EEC with
respect to Electromagnetic Compatibility.
If the plug needs replacing
Connect the Green/Yellow wire (Earth) to the terminal
marked E or
. Connect the Blue wire (Neutral) to the terminal marked N.
Connect the Brown wire (Live) to the terminal marked L. Secure the cord grip.
If in doubt consult an electrician.
If the plug supplied is non-rewireable (moulded)
Don’t use the plug without the fuse cover in place. If you need to
remove the plug, cut it off and dispose of it. To avoid electric
shock, don’t re-use the plug or put it into a socket.
After sales service
The appliance isn’t user–serviceable. If it’s not working properly, check:
1.You’ve followed the instructions correctly.
2.The plug fuse hasn’t blown.
3.The main supply fuse/circuit breaker hasn’t blown/tripped.
If it still doesn’t work, consult your retailer. If your retailer fails to solve your
problem, and you need to return it to us, proceed as follows:
1.Pack it carefully.
2.Enclose your name, address, and daytime telephone number.
