IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
IMPORTANT: To assure proper operation, read and follow
instructions carefully. Before using for the first time, wash the
inside of the coffee maker, cover and basket assembly with hot
sudsy water. Rinse thoroughly. DO NOT IMMERSE COFFEE
MAKER IN WATER OR OTHER LIQUID.
1. For perfect coffee every time, always fill your coffee maker with
fresh COLD water. Fill to desired level, see fill level indicator
inside the body. Make at least 2 cups at a time to assure best
flavor.
2. Place either regular or percolator grind coffee in the basket.
When adding coffee to basket, place a finger over the stem to
prevent grounds from falling through.
Note: The coffee maker’s rapid percolating action may cause
sediment to collect on the bottom of the pot. The sediment can
be reduced by using a percolator coffee filter (available from
most grocers) in the perk basket.
The following suggested amounts of coffee can be adjusted
according to personal preference:

3. Cover the basket with the basket lid. Slip the basket on the
perk tube and seat the perk tube in the coffee maker perk well.
IF THE PERK TUBE IS NOT SEATED PROPERLY IN
THE PERK WELL, THE COFFEE MAKER WILL NOT
PERK.
4. Place the cover firmly on the coffee maker.
5. Connect the cord to the coffee maker then to a standard AC wall
outlet. Never plug coffee maker in without water or liquid coffee
in it.
A short cord set has been provided to reduce risks resulting
from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
Longer cord sets or an extension cord may be used if care is
exercised in their use.
If a longer cord set or an extension cord is used, the marked
electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be
at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance. The
longer 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.
To reduce the risk of personal injury or property damage, when
using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always
be followed, including the following.
1. Read all instructions.
2. To protect against electrical shock, do not immerse cord,
plugs, or coffee maker in water or other liquid.

manner. Return the appliance to the Presto Factory Service
Department or to the nearest Presto Authorized Service
Station for examination, repair, or adjustment.

appliance manufacturer may result in fire, electric shock, or
personal injury.
