Appliance with glass carafe:
A. The carafe is designed for use with these
appliances. It must never be used on a range
B. Do not set a hot carafe on a wet or cold
C. Do not use a cracked carafe or a carafe having
a loose or weakened handle.
D. Do not clean carafe with cleansers, steel wool
pads, or other abrasive material.
This appliance is for household use only. Any servicing
other than cleaning and user maintenance should be
performed by the nearest authorized KRUPS Service
Center (see Guarantee of Performance).
Do not immerse base in water.
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not remove
the base. No user servicable parts inside. Repair should
be done by an authorized KRUPS Service Center only.
Regarding your cord set:
A. A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce
risks resulting from becoming entangled in or
tripping over a longer cord.
B. Longer extension cords are available and may be
used if care is exercised in their use.
C. If a long extension cord is used, (1) the marked
electrical rating of the extension cord should be at
least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance,
(2) if the appliance is of the grounded type, the
extension cord should be arranged so that it will not
drape over the counter top or table top where it can
be pulled on by children or tripped over.
D. This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is
wider than the other). As a safety feature, this plug
will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug
does not fully fit in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it
still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician.
Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.

Using the KRUPS
“Premium” coffeemaker
Your new KRUPS “Premium”
coffeemaker has the following features:
Filling the water chamber
W dpen the hinged lid (figure 1).
Unique hermetically designed carafe
and lid keep coffee hotter up to 20%
longer than conventional carafes,
while preserving coffee flavor and
Electronically-controlled flavor
selector button adjusts the brewing
cycle for l-3 cups or 4-10 cups, for
the fullest coffee flavor.
Swing away two-part filter holder
with release button is convenient to
use and easy to clean.
Auto shut-off feature keeps coffee
hot for 2 hours after brewing, then
turns appliance off.
W “Stop’n Serve” feature lets you pour
a cup or two while brewing. The
automatic filter seal will allow you to
remove the carafe for 20 seconds
without dripping coffee onto the
warming plate.
W Stainless steel anti-drip spout
prevents coffee spillage when
pouring from any angle.
W Water level indicator is easy to read.
W Hinged water chamber lid protects
water from dust and dirt.
W Hidden cord storage allows you to
set the cord length you need.
Goidtone filter eliminates coffee
sediment for best coffee results.
Before you start
Before making your first pot of
delicious coffee, we recommend
operating the coffeemaker once or
twice with water only, without ground
coffee or a filter, to remove any
possible dust.
Using the glass carafe, pour in the
desired quantity of water (figure 2).
The markings on the glass carafe
and water level indicator show how
much water you are filling into the
chamber (figure 3).
The amount of freshly brewed coffee
delivered after the brewing process will
always be slightly less than the amount
of water put into the water chamber.
This is due to the minimum absorption
of the water by the ground coffee.
Therefore, it is recommended that you
add a little extra water at the
beginning, so that you will have the
number of cups you desire.
Note: Excess water in the water tank
cannot be poured out of the appliance.
To eliminate any excess water, allow
the coffee maker to operate without
coffee grounds.
W Close the hinged lid.
Putting in the ground coffee
W Press the release button and swing
out the 2-part filter holder (figure 4).
Insert the KRUPS goldtone filter into
the filter insert (figure 5).
If you desire, you can use paper filters
instead of the goldtone filter. We
recommend using KRUPS size 4 filters.
Add the ground coffee (figure 6).
We suggest using one level KRUPS
measuring scoop of ground coffee for
each cup of robust coffee. After using
your KRUPS coffeemaker several
times, you can adjust the measure to
suit your own taste.
Close the filter holder and make sure
that it is completely closed (figure 7).
Set the carafe lid on the carafe, and
replace the carafe on the warming
n Press the ON/OFF switch (figure 8).
A red indicator light will illuminate and
brewing will commence.
CAUTION: Never open the filter holder
during the brewing process.
This model features a full flavor
selector button. If you want to make
l-3 cups of coffee, press the flavor
selector button (figure 9).
A yellow indicator light will illuminate.
This will extend the brewing cycle so
that the water will seep into the ground
coffee slowly enough to yield brewed
coffee that is rich, aromatic and truly
The flavor selector button is
automatically switched off when the
appliance shuts off.
Remove the glass carafe when the
brewing process is completed and
Replace the carafe on the warming
plate to keep it hot (figure 10).
The “Stop’n Serve” feature is KRUPS
answer to the impatient coffee
drinker’s clamor for “a quick cup of
coffee!“ This device automatically
stops the flow of brewed coffee
through the filter cone if the glass
carafe is removed from the warming
plate during the brewing cycle. You
have about 20 seconds between the
removal of the carafe and its being
reinserted to allow the service of one
or two cups of coffee. The “Stop’n
Serve” device closes off the filter cone
so effectively that there is virtually no
coffee-drip onto the warming plate
(one drop, at most). Once the carafe is
replaced, the brewing cycle and the
flow of coffee into the carafe are
If coffee does drip onto the warming
plate after removal of the carafe, it is
usually an indication that too much
ground coffee has been placed into the
paper filter. This causes the water that
jets into the filter cone to overflow
between the paper filter and the sides
of the filter cone. The overflow carries
coffee grounds that interfere with the
snap-shut action of the filter holder,
thus allowing brewed coffee to
continue to drip through.
If this blockage and subsequent
dripping do occur, replace the glass
carafe immediately and allow the full
brewing cycle to run its course. Do not
remove the filter until the brewing
cycle is completed.
The KRUPS “Premium” is equipped
with an automatic shut-off feature, that
will turn off the machine 2 hours after
the brewing process has begun (the
red indicator light will turn off).
The appliance can be switched off
manually at any time, however, by
using the ON/OFF switch.
W The power cord can be tailored to
the length required by utilising the
hidden cord storage located behind
the coffeemaker (figure 11).
Helpful Hints
water. It will also depend upon how
often you use your coffeemaker.
Always use fresh, cold water (warm
water might be stale and have
mineral deposits which would impair
the flavor of the coffee).
Indications that decalcifying is
necessary are:
We recommend that you grind your
own beans. Freshly ground beans
deliver more aroma and flavor.
Use one KRUPS measuring scoop of
beans per cup.
Serve coffee immediately after
n Never reheat coffee.
Cleaning and Decalcifying
Always unplug the coffeemaker and
remove the goldtone filter before
cleaning (figure 12).
The glass carafe, hinged lid, filter insert
and goldtone filter can be washed in a
solution of hot water and mild liquid
soap. These parts can also be placed in
the upper rack of your dishwasher for
safe effective cleaning.
Never use scouring agents.
Never immerse the appliance itself in
water or any other liquid.
To clean, simply wipe off with a soft,
damp cloth.
Never use a cloth to clean the inside of
the water chamber, as this might leave
fuzzy deposits in the chamber. Just
rinse with cold water periodically.
Although your KRUPS coffeemaker has
the most advanced water heating and
pumping system, itwill periodically
need cleaning with a decalcifying
agent. This is due to the calcium
(limestone) found in drinking water.
In some areas where the water is hard,
you will need to decalcify more
frequently than in areas with soft
- increased noise during the brewing
- a lengthening of the coffee
preparation time
To decalcify, dissolve 1 packet of
KRUPS decalcifying agent in 2 cups of
cold water. Pour the solution into the
water container, then put the empty
carafe in place and brew for one full
cycle (do not use coffee during this
process). Repeat. Allow the solution to
cool down for about ten minutes
between: each cycle, turning appliance
off during this time. Flush system by
cycling clean water through machine
2 or 3 times.
