SPECIAL CORD SET
INSTRUCTIONS
A short power-supply cord is provided to
reduce the risks resulting from becoming
entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
Longer extension cords may be used
if care is exercised.
If a long extension cord is used, the marked
electrical rating of the extension cord must be
at least as great as the electrical rating of the
appliance, and the longer cord should be
arranged so that it will not drape over the
countertop or tabletop, where it can be pulled
on by children or tripped over.
NOTICE
This appliance has a polarized plug (one
blade is wider than the other). To reduce
the risk of electric shock, this plug will fit into
a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug
does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the

electrician. Do not modify the plug in any way.
OPERATING NOTICE
Clogging and backing up of water and/or
coffee in the filter basket can occur under
any or a combination of any of the following
conditions: The use of too finely ground
coffee, using two or more paper filters, using
the gold tone filter in conjunction with a paper
filter, not properly cleaning coffee grounds
from the gold tone filter, or allowing coffee
grounds to spill over the filter.
Caution: Never open the filter basket during
the brewing cycle, even if no water is draining
from the filter basket, since extremely hot
water/coffee can spill out from the filter basket
and cause injury. If water/coffee is not draining
from the filter basket during the brewing cycle,
unplug the unit and wait 10 minutes before
opening and checking the filter basket.

THE QUEST
FOR THE PERFECT
CUP OF COFFEE
Element 1: Water
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 odours,
for the purest coffee flavour, every time
you brew.
Coffeemaker FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Distributes water evenly over coffee,
reducing temperature loss as water
passes through grounds.
4.Charcoal Water Filter Holder
Holds filter firmly in place.
Stops flow of coffee from basket when
carafe is removed from the heater plate,
so a cup can be poured in mid-brew.
The easy-pour, no-drip 12-cup carafe
has an ergonomic handle and brewed
coffee markings.
12.Adjustable Heater Plate
Keeps brewed coffee at desired temperature.
Scratch-resistant with nonstick coating.
5.Charcoal Water Filter (not shown)
13.Ready Tone (not shown)
Element 2: Coffee
6.Filter Basket (not shown)
14.Power Loss Back-up System
(not shown)
While coffee is 98% water, all of the
flavour 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. Buy
only about a two-week supply at a time,
because once the bean is broken, its
flavour degrades quickly.
7. Filter Basket Holder (not shown)
8. Coffeemaker Control Panel
Element 3: Grind
The grind is critical for proper
flavour 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
flavour will not be extracted. When
grinding your own beans, we recommend
a medium-fine grind.
Eliminates chlorine, calcium and bad tastes
and odours from tap water.
Holds a #4 paper filter or a permanent filter.
See detailed illustration, page 6.
One-minute protection if a breaker trips, unit
is unplugged, or power fails. Holds all

CHARCOAL WATER FILTER
Your coffeemaker comes with a charcoal water
filter that eliminates chlorine, bad tastes and
odours from tap water.
Inserting the Water Filter
•Remove the filter from polybag and soak it,
fully immersed, in cold tap water for 15
minutes.
•Lift the water filter holder out of the water
reservoir (see diagram, page 5).
•Press down on the filter compartment and pull
toward you to open.
•Place filter into the holder and snap
it closed. Be careful – improper placement can
tear the filter skin.
•Flush filter by running cold tap water through
holes in bottom of compartment for 10
seconds.
•Allow the filter to drain completely.
•Slide the water filter holder back into the
channel in the water reservoir, pushing it
down to the base of the unit.
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 or by calling
Cuisinart Customer Service.

Brewing COFFEE
Follow instructions in “Before First Use”
on previous page.
1. Insert charcoal water filter
Follow directions for the preparation and
insertion of the filter on page 7.
2. Fill the water reservoir
Open the coffeemaker reservoir cover by lifting
it up. Pour in the desired amount of water using
the water level indicator located at the side of
the coffeemaker.
3. Set preferences
a. Push the 1-4 cup button if you are brewing
fewer than 5 cups.
b. Turn the Carafe Temperature dial to low (L),
medium (M), or high (H) and heater plate will
keep coffee at the temperature you select.
4. Add the ground coffee
Remove the filter basket by grasping the handle
and lifting straight up. Insert a #4 paper filter or
permanent filter. Be sure that a 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 level scoop
of ground coffee per cup. Adjust the amount
according to taste.
NOTE: The maximum capacity for ground
coffee is 15 tablespoons (225 ml) for this
coffeemaker. Exceeding this amount may
cause overflow if the coffee is too finely
ground.
Replace the filter basket in the filter basket
holder and press firmly on cover to be sure it
closes securely.
5. Before brewing coffee
Make sure the glass carafe is in position on the
heating plate and the top cover is closed. Plug
the cord into an electrical outlet.
6. Power unit
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
page 7) and the Auto On indicator will light.
7. After brewing
When the brewing cycle has been completed,
five beeps will sound. Coffee will continue to
stream from the filter for several seconds.
Note: Reservoir cover may be hot during
and directly after brewing. Wait at least 10
minutes before opening.
8
Brew Pause™ Feature
This feature interrupts the flow of coffee
from the basket to let you pour that first
cup mid-brew. Because the flavour profile
of coffee brewed at the start of a cycle
differs from that brewed towards the end,
be aware that using this feature will weaken
the flavour strength of the finished pot.
NOTE: Removing carafe for more than 20
seconds may cause filter basket to
overflow.
using the hot
water system
Follow instructions in “Before First Use”

not to fill above the Max fill line.
2. Heating
Press the On/Off button on the Hot Water side
of your unit. The blue On indicator around the
On/Off button will light. The Water Ready
indicator will flash while the unit is heating.
Once the unit has heated, the Water Ready
indicator will become solid.
3. Dispensing Water
To dispense water, be sure the safety switch,
which is located below the lever, is in the
unlocked position. Simply slide the safety
switch to the left to unlock. Then place a cup
on the drip tray and press the lever down –
the unit dispenses up to 13 ounces of hot
water at a time. If desired, return the safety
lock to the locked position (to the right) after
dispensing water.
NOTE: You can remove the drip tray to
accommodate tall mugs.
4. After dispensing
The heater will immediately begin heating more

CLEANING AND
MAINTENANCE
Always turn unit off and remove the plug
from the electrical outlet before cleaning.
Lift up the coffeemaker reservoir cover. Remove
and discard the paper filter and ground coffee.
The filter basket 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 has been removed. Wipe the area under
the filter basket with a damp cloth.
Remove the carafe from the heating plate.
Discard any remaining coffee. The carafe and
lid can be washed in warm, soapy water and
rinsed thoroughly, or placed in a dishwasher.
The carafe and carafe lid should be placed on
the upper rack only.
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. Wipe heating
plate with a clean, damp cloth. Never use
rough, abrasive materials or cleansers to clean
the heater plate. Do not dry the inside of the
water reservoir with a cloth, as lint may remain.
EMPTYING THE HOT
WATER RESERVOIR
If your Hot Water System has not been used for
more than one week, or if you plan to store
your Coffee PLUS™ unit, we suggest emptying
the reservoir completely. Place it over the sink,
and pull the water release tab from the bottom
of the unit to drain the Hot Water System
reservoir. Once empty, replace the release tab.
NOTE: Hot Water Reservoir should be
emptied only when the unit is cool. To
avoid injury, do not empty the reservoir
when there is hot water in the unit.
decalcification
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 flavour
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
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.
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.
Notes on the Clean Function
Pressing the Clean button cancels all other
settings. If it is pressed accidentally, press it
again to return the coffeemaker to all its
previous settings. Pressing On/Off will also exit
the clean mode and turn the coffeemaker off.
To Decalcify your Hot Water System
We recommend you clean your hot water
system twice a year to remove any calcium
scale residue from the heating element.
1. Dispense and dispose any water in the reservoir
until the Add Water light flashes.
2. Add 32oz (950 ml) of white vinegar to the Hot
Water reservoir. Turn the unit on to heat the
water.
3. Dispense 16oz. (475 ml) of vinegar and dispose.
This will fill the inner tank.
4. Let the vinegar solution sit in the unit for 20
minutes. Do not dispense during this time.
5. After 20 minutes, turn the unit off and allow hot
vinegar to cool. Then drain the internal reservoir
over a sink by removing the water release tab
from the bottom of unit.
6. When vinegar has completely drained,
replace tab.
Decalcification refers to the removal of calcium
deposits that form over time on the metal parts
of the coffeemaker.
7. Refill reservoir with water and drain the internal
reservoir again (by removing tab at the bottom
of the unit) to flush thoroughly. Replace tab.
To Decalcify your Coffeemaker
For best performance from your Coffeemaker,
decalcify the 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 unit should be cleaned
NOTE: If water has a vinegar taste or smell,
continue to dispense water until taste or smell is
gone.
