Electrical Requirements
Do not use an extension cord. If the power
supply cord is too short, have a qualified
electrician or serviceman install an outlet
near the appliance.
A short power supply cord (or detachable
power supply cord) should be used to reduce
the risk resulting from becoming entangled in
or tripping over a longer cord.
If a longer detachable power supply cord or
extension cord is used:
• T
he marked electrical rating of the cord
set or extension cord should be at least
as great as the electrical rating of the
appliance.
• T
he 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 unintentionally.
If the appliance is of the grounded type, the
extension cord should be a grounding-type
3-wire cord.
Volts: 120 Volts AC only
Hertz: 60 Hz
NOTE: This coffee maker has a 3-prong
grounded plug. To reduce the risk of
electrical shock, this plug will fit in an outlet
only one way. If the plug does not fit in the
outlet, contact a qualified electrician. Do not
modify the plug in any way.

Coffee Brewing Suggestions:
Advice For Great Taste
Fresh Coffee Beans
Truly great coffee can only come from fresh
coffee beans. To preserve the freshness of
your beans, keep the beans in an opaque,
airtight container and store them in a cool,
dry place. Refrigeration is not recommended
since condensation tends to form on the
beans whenever the container is opened.
Freezing can help preserve beans stored for
an extended period, but it will also impair
flavor.
The Right Grind
The best cup of coffee comes from coffee
beans that are properly ground just before
brewing. When grinding, be sure to grind
your coffee to a medium grind level, the
appropriate grind for automatic drip coffee
makers.
Look for the KitchenAid™ blade or burr
coffee grinders at your local retailer or
online at www.KitchenAid.com.
6
W10491893A_EN.indd 6
The Proper Amount of Ground Coffee
A good starting point is 1-2 Tbsp. of coffee
for every 6 oz. of brew water marked on the
water tank. Finer grinds usually require less
coffee but may also produce bitterness and
clog the filter.
For weaker coffee, brew using the suggested
ratio of coffee grounds and water, then dilute
with hot water. This maximizes flavor and
minimizes bitterness.
Brew Water Purity
Great tasting coffee starts with fresh water.
The removable water tank is easy to fill with
water to give you great tasting coffee every
time. It’s also easy to clean so you can always
make your coffee with the freshest water.
Where local water is extremely poor, you
may wish to use bottled water. Do not use
distilled water or mineral water since they
can damage your coffee maker.
Coffee Maker Cleanliness
Since the coffee oils that build up on the
brew basket and carafe can go stale and
impair the flavor of the brewed coffee, it’s
important that these two items are cleaned
daily in order to make the best tasting coffee.
7/10/12 12:09 PM
Pre-Use Cleaning
Wash the brew basket, Gold Tone permanent
filter, and travel mug in hot, soapy water,
then rinse with clean water and dry. Do not
use abrasive cleansers or scouring pads.
Brewing Coffee
NOTE: Brew one mug of fresh, cool water
and discard before brewing the first mug of
coffee (first time use only).
1. Remove the water tank and fill with
enough fresh, cool water to make the
desired amount of coffee. When replacing
the tank, make sure to align it with the
tab(s).
N
OTE: The tank can be filled without
removing the tank from the coffee maker.
4. Insert a #2 Cone paper filter or the Gold
Tone permanent filter into the brew
basket.
IMPORTANT: Do not use both types of
filters at the same time. Using both filters
might cause water and coffee to overflow
the brew basket.
5. F
ill the filter with one level tablespoon of
ground coffee for each 6 oz. desired. Use
a medium grind appropriate for automatic
drip coffee makers.
NOTE: Too fine a grind produces
bitterness and may clog the coffee filter.
IMPORTANT:Always place the filter and
coffee into the removable brew basket.
Do not operate the coffee maker without
the brew basket in place.
ENGLISH
Coffee Maker Use
2. After filling the water tank, place the
thermal travel mug in the coffee maker.
To maximize coffee temperature, it is
recommend that brew coffee with the lid
already placed on the mug. Make sure that
the lid is centered. You may also fill the
mug with hot tap water for 30 seconds to
preheat for hotter coffee temperatures.
NOTE: The coffee maker is capable of
brewing into most tall-sided coffee mugs.
3. Open the brew basket door. Brew basket
may be removed, but can be filled without
removing it from the front of the coffee
maker.
6. E
ven out the bed of coffee. If the brew
basket is removed, place the mounting
holes over the pins in the door and seat
it securely in the door. Be sure the brew
basket door is fully closed before brewing.
7. P

coffee.
8. T

Coffee Maker Care
Cleaning the Coffee Maker
1. Remove the brew basket and travel mug
from the coffee maker.
2. Wash the brew basket and Gold Tone
permanent filter in hot, soapy water and
rinse with hot water. Do not use abrasive
cleansers or scouring pads. These parts
can also be washed in the upper rack of
a dishwasher.
3. Unplug the coffee maker and wipe the
housing with a warm, soapy cloth. Then
wipe clean with damp cloth and dry with
a soft cloth. Do not use abrasive cleansers
or scouring pads.
Descaling the Coffee Maker
Calcium deposits (scale) from water will
build up in the coffee maker heat pump
over time and impair brewing efficiency
and coffee quality. Descaling should be
done to preserve the performance and
life of your coffee maker.
The coffee maker can be descaled using a
packaged descaling agent or vinegar. Always
mix the descaling solution using cool water.
• When using a descaling agent, follow
the directions on the package for the
recommended amounts of descaling
agent and water to use.
• W
hen using vinegar, fill the mug with
a solution consisting of ½ vinegar and
½ water.
1. B
efore descaling, always make sure the
brew basket contains no coffee or coffee
filters.
2. R
un the coffee maker through a
complete brewing cycle using a full
tank of the descaling solution or the
vinegar mixture. Press the ON button
to start the brewing cycle.
3. R
inse the coffee maker by running
it through 2 brewing cycles using a full
water tank of fresh, cool water each time.
4. W

and rinse with hot water. The brew basket
can also be washed in the upper rack of
the dishwasher.
Troubleshooting
• If only a portion of the water added
to the coffee maker actually brews:
The coffee maker requires immediate
descaling. Please refer to “Descaling the
Coffee Maker” in the “Coffee Maker
Care” section.
• If the problem cannot be corrected:
See the KitchenAid warranty section.
Do not return the coffee maker to the
retailer; retailers do not provide service.
