BASIC CLEANING
Clean the appliance regularly with a soft damp cloth and a mild detergent. To clean the Chemex
brewer remove the wooden handle and continue to hand wash with warm soap and water, or place the
coffeemaker securely in the dishwasher. To prevent damage to the appliance never use any chemicals,
alkaline cleaning agents , steel wool or abrasive cleaners when cleaning the appliance. NOTE: Always
unplug the appliance from the mains and allow to cool prior to cleaning. Use Chemex® Automatic Coffeemaker Cleaner to clean the glass brewer. This is available on www.chemex¬coffeemaker.com

Over time, scaling from calcium content in the water may build up in the appliance. Scaling can
adversely affect the performance of the brewer, and can even cause the appliance to stop working. To
ensure long life of the appliance, please descale it regularly. This will ensure the perfect operation of
the appliance. We recommend that you descale after every 40 brew cycles, or a minimum of every 3
months.
A descale solution can be purchased from www.chemexcoffeemaker.com.
Descale process:
1. Fill the water tank with de-scale solution up to the 8 cup level.
2. Run the brew cycle to fully flush the de-scale solution through the brewer.
3. After de-scaling rinse the system by running a minimum of two brew cycles using only water.
