General Precautions
1
Do not allow the appliance to be used by children.
Close attention is necessary when used near
children. This is not a toy.
2To reduce the risk of electric shock, this
appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is
wider than the other). As a safety feature,
this plug will fit into a polarized outlet only
one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the
outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician. Do not force
into outlet or try to modify to fit.
3To protect against electrical shock, do not
submerge the appliance or allow the power
cord to come into contact with water or any
other liquid.
4Allow the appliance to cool before taking off
parts and before cleaning.
5Do not abuse the power cord. Never carry
the appliance by the power cord or yank it
to disconnect from electrical outlet; instead
grasp the plug and pull to disconnect.
6Do not operate any appliance with a
damaged cord or plug, or after the appliance
malfunctions, has been dropped or damaged
in any manner.
7Do not let the power cord hang over the edge
of table or counter or touch hot surfaces
such as the stove.
8Extension cords are not recommended for
use with this product.
9Do not remove the brew basket or carafe
while the appliance is brewing. Scalding
may occur if any of these parts are
removed during brewing cycles.
10The use of an accessory not recommended
by the manufacturer may result in fire,
electric shock, create an overflow condition
and scalding hazard or personal injury.
11Do not operate your appliance in an
appliance garage or under a wall cabinet.
When storing in an appliance garage always
unplug the unit from the electrical outlet. Not
doing so could create a risk of fire, especially
if the appliance touches the walls of the
garage or the door touches the unit as it
closes.

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
a permanent filter in conjunction with a paper
filter, not cleaning coffee grounds from a

Features of the Ninja Coffee Bar™
Before First Use
• Thermal Flavor Extraction Technology - Blends Precision Water Delivery with automated controls for Calibrated Temperature,
Pre-infusion, Coffee Saturation, and Flavor Richness. Ninja®’s Thermal Flavor Extraction technology can truly unlock the full flavor
potential of your coffee.
PLEASE KEEP THESE IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
IN MIND WHEN USING THE APPLIANCE:
• Multi Serve – Ability to brew directly into your favorite cup, travel mug, or carafe.
CAUTION: APPLIANCE CREATES HOT LIQUID.
HANDLE WITH CARE.
• Brew Types – control the strength and style of your coffee:
a.
Classic Brew for smooth, balanced hot coffee.
b.
Rich Brew for a richer-than-classic and still smooth coffee with more room for milk and cream.
c.
Over Ice Brew for a smooth, rich, freshly brewed iced coffee that’s not watered down.
d.
Specialty Brew for a strong extract for specialty milk-based drinks or blended iced drinks.
CAUTION: DO NOT remove the vessel while the
appliance is running without the Drip Stop in the
closed position. Return the vessel quickly and
open the Drip Stop to continue the brew.
CAUTION: DO NOT place the thermal carafe in the
dishwasher.
• Multi Serve Cup Platform – Pull it down and place your favorite cup on it and brew directly into it.
• Removable Water Reservoir with Easy Access Flip Top Lid – For quick and easy filling.
CAUTION: Never open the brew basket when the
coffeemaker is in use.
•Auto-iQ™ – The Ninja Coffee Bar™ knows how much water to use for each size and brew type.
• 43 oz Thermal Carafe
CAUTION: Please ensure that you are using at
least a 12 oz. cup for the cup size and a 16 oz.
travel mug for the travel mug size to prevent
overflow and a scalding injury.
• LED Control Panel with Programmable Digital Clock
• 24-HR Programmable Delay Brew Button – Set it to automatically brew the following morning.
• Drip Stop – Stops the flow of coffee from the brew basket allowing you to pour a cup mid-brew; switch toggle to the closed position
to prevent dripping once the brew cycle is finished.
• Clean Function – It illuminates when your Ninja Coffee Bar™ senses that there is hard water calcium buildup in your brewer which
can affect the flavor of your coffee. When it illuminates, follow the cleaning instructions in the Care & Maintenance section or printed
on the back of your brewer.
IMPORTANT: Always place a vessel beneath the
brew basket to receive the brewed coffee.
• Audible Ready Signal – Alerts you that your coffee is ready.
• Permanent Filter - The permanent filter is a reusable filter that preserves the natural coffee oils and small coffee particles to provide
a robust flavor, similar to what you would experience when using a French press.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT run the appliance without
water.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT overfill the water
reservoir, fill water only to the Max Fill line.

HOW MUCH COFFEE DO YOU GET IN YOUR CUP?
1 For easy filling, remove the water reservoir by slightly twisting
counterclockwise until it is free from the brewer. (Fig. 10)
Each size and brew type produces a different amount of coffee to
optimize strength, taste, and size.
2 Either flip the lid top over or remove lid by twisting
counterclockwise to remove. (Fig. 11a, Fig. 11b)
NOTE: The coffee grounds will absorb some of the water that is
brewed, resulting in slightly less brewed coffee than water used.
NOTE: The water reservoir and water reservoir lid can lock in
multiple locations.
CAUTION: Please ensure that you are using at
least a 12 oz. cup for the cup size and a 16 oz. travel
mug for the travel mug size.
3 For best results, fill the water reservoir with fresh, cool,
filtered water. Ensure that the water is above the
minimum fill line for the brew size that is selected. Do
not exceed the Max Fill line. The machine’s intelligence will
automatically measure the amount of water needed. To avoid
refilling after each cup, fill to the carafe line.
NOTE: Do not fill past the Max Fill line or water will
begin to overflow from the overflow hole at the top of
the hand grip. Remove the water reservoir from the
brewer and empty to the Max Fill line.
Depending on the size and brew type, you may have
water left in the reservoir.
4 Place the water reservoir back on the brewer and twist
clockwise until you feel the reservoir lock into place.
5 Place the vessel that you would like to brew into underneath
the brew basket–ensure that the vessel is centered under the
brew basket. (Fig. 12)
NOTE: After removing the water reservoir, there may be a
small amount of water in the reservoir valve. This can be
easily removed with a dry cloth.

FILLING THE BREW BASKET WITH COFFEE
For best results, use the below measurements of ground coffee
for each size brew–the amount of ground coffee for each size will
remain the same for any brew type that you select. For example, if
you select Cup and Classic Brew, you will use the same amount of
coffee grounds as if you select Cup and Specialty Brew.
CAUTION: The maximum capacity for ground
coffee is 12 rounded tablespoons or 6 Ninja Carafe
Scoops. Exceeding this amount or using fine ground
coffee may cause overflow.
1 Open the brew basket by sliding the brew basket out of the
brewer. (Fig. 13)
NOTE: The brew basket can be removed from the brewer by
lifting the brew basket at a slight upward angle (similar to a
cabinet drawer).
NOTE: Check for any loose grounds that may be left in the
brew basket. Remove and rinse the brew basket if needed.
2 Place the permanent filter or a #4 paper cone filter in
the brew basket. If using a paper cone filter, remove the
permanent filter, fold along the seams, open it fully, and
firmly press it into the brew basket making sure that it is fully
seated. (Fig. 14)

senses there is a calcium build up on your machine which
may be affecting the flavor of your coffee. To clean your
machine and keep the same great taste of Ninja® coffee,
follow the directions below.
CLEANING AFTER A BREW
CAUTION: Make sure that the brewer is unplugged
from the power source before cleaning.
CAUTION: Be sure to allow the brewer to cool before
cleaning.
NOTE: Do not leave coffee in the thermal carafe for an
extended period of time after a brew.
NOTE: Do not leave water in the reservoir unused for
multiple days. Rinse and replace with fresh water.
1 Before cleaning, close the Drip Stop.
2 After each brew is complete and the coffee grounds have
cooled, carefully remove the permanent filter and wash. If
using the paper filter, simply discard. Remove brew basket
from the brewer, rinse and wash with soap and warm water.
NOTE: The brew basket and thermal carafe are not
dishwasher safe.
NOTE: If coffee grounds spilled over into the brew basket or
in the overflow channels, remove and rinse under water until
grounds are removed.
3 Wash the thermal carafe and brew-through lid with soap and
warm water. Use a bottle brush or a cloth to wash the inside
of the carafe.
NOTE: The brew-through lid, permanent filter and water
reservoir are top shelf dishwasher safe.
4 Wipe machine down with a warm cloth with soap and water to
clean the base plate and outer parts. Do not immerse the
base in water.
NOTE: For best results, use a bottle brush. This will allow you
to scrub all of the inside with soap and hot water.
CLEANING YOUR THERMAL CARAFE
We recommend rinsing your carafe with
warm soapy water.
NOTE: Do not place the thermal
carafe in the dishwasher.
If you want to clean the carafe more
thoroughly, we recommend using a soft
foam brush such as the one shown.

1 Select the carafe size and set the carafe in place beneath the
brew basket.
PROBLEMS
Sediment in my coffee.
Grounds in my coffee.
Brew basket dripping
after brew.
Paper filter falling
over.
Fill the water reservoir to the cup line (11 oz.) with white
vinegar, then fill the rest of the water reservoir with water up
to, but not exceeding the Clean Cycle Max Fill line (30 oz.)
IMPORTANT: Use only white vinegar.
3 Once the water reservoir is filled with your cleaning
solution and water mixture (not exceeding the Clean
Cycle Max Fill line), simply press the Clean button to
activate the clean cycle. (Fig. 21)
NOTE: The clean cycle takes approximately 8 minutes to fully
descale and clean the machine.
4 Once the clean cycle is complete, empty and rinse the carafe
and water reservoir. Please take special care to thoroughly
clean the carafe and water reservoir to remove any cleaning
solution that could affect the flavor of your coffee.
5 Once the clean light turns off, fill the water reservoir with
water up to, but not exceeding the Clean Cycle Max Fill line
(30 oz.) and run 2 more clean cycles with fresh water to rinse
the internal parts of the brewer.
NOTE: If the Clean light illuminates on the next brew after
a clean cycle, this means there is still calcium build up on
the brewer. Repeat steps above and the clean light will
automatically shut off when it senses your Ninja Coffee Bar™
is clean and free of calcium build up!
Please call customer service if any servicing needs to be
performed on the brewer at 1-877-646-5288.
To reduce the amount of sediment in the brewed coffee use a slightly coarser grind or use a paper
filter.
If there are grounds in your coffee, check to make sure the brew basket did not overflow.
If there are too many grounds in the brew basket, or you are using a fine ground coffee, the
grounds will flow into an overflow channel designed to make sure overflow is captured in the brew
vessel. For best results use medium ground coffee in the recommended measurements.
Check to see if the Drip Stop toggle is set to the closed, no drip position.
If the Drip Stop is set to the closed, no drip position and the brewer continues to drip, run a clean
cycle or wash the brew basket thoroughly with warm, soapy water.
The Ninja Coffee Bar™ is designed to take a #4 cone filter. Be sure you are using this size and shape
for best results.
Be sure the paper filter is firmly pressed into the brew basket.
Wet the corners of the filter for best results.
If problem persists, try using a permanent filter.
2 Use a descaling solution and follow the directions on the
package and fill up to, but not exceeding the Clean Cycle Max
Fill line (30 oz.).
OR
POSSIBLE REASONS & SOLUTIONS
If there is sediment at the bottom of the brewed coffee, this may be due to finely ground coffee in a
permanent filter.
Coffee is not hot
enough.
To keep your coffee hotter longer, preheat your mug or carafe by rinsing it with hot water from the
tap.
If using a microwave safe mug with cream or milk, try preheating the cream or milk in the microwave
for 30 seconds.
NOTE: Never place carafe in the microwave.
Over Ice Brew is not
cold.
Weak coffee.
Coffee too strong.
The Over Ice Brew is designed to brew hot coffee over ice to lock in the flavor for rich, smooth iced
coffee. Make sure your cup, travel mug, or carafe is filled all the way to the top with ice cubes.
If the coffee tastes weak, try adding more coffee grounds into the brew basket for the next brew
cycle.
If the coffee is still weak after adding more coffee grounds, try Rich Brew to make a stronger more
concentrated cup.
Try using a more coarse grind.
If the coffee is still too strong, try using less coffee grounds.
Check to make sure the brewer is plugged in and water is in the water reservoir.
Brew will not start.
If the drip stop is in the open position, check that the brew basket is pushed all the way into the
brewer.
If you hear 5 beeps, check that the drip stop is in the open position.
NOTE: The brew will begin, stop, and be quiet for a short period of time before it begins again. This
process is used to evenly saturate your coffee grounds.
Brew cycle is too slow.
A carafe brew will take approximately 8 minutes and the single cup will take approximately 4
minutes.
If the brew cycle is taking longer than normal, run the clean cycle with the descaling solution.

Check the amount of coffee or type of grind used.
My water reservoir is
leaking.
If water was filled above the Max Fill line, water may overflow from the overflow hole at
the top of the hand grip. Remove the water reservoir from the brewer and empty to the
Max Fill line.
Ninja Coffee Bar allows you to fill the reservoir up to but not exceeding the Max Fill line

Coffee Brew Volume:
What impacts coffee
brew volume?
POSSIBLE REASONS & SOLUTIONS
Our unique carafe shape and design has the following benefits:
Easy grip design making it easy to pour coffee without dripping.
Thoroughly mix your coffee from the first drop to the last thanks to the Brew-Through
Carafe Lid.
Optimize coffee temperature.
Allow you to brew both hot and iced coffee.
When you make hot coffee, coffee grounds will absorb some of the water that is brewed
resulting in slightly less brewed coffee than the water used. The more coffee you use,
the more water will be absorbed. Additionally, our wider bottom carafe holds most of the
volume coffee at the base which helps control the temperature more evenly.
Classic Brew:
Full Carafe
How does the Ninja
coffee bar keep
coffee at the right
temperature?
After a brew you may notice left over water in your water reservoir after filling to the
minimum fill line of the size selected. The water reservoir markings are minimum fill lines
that indicate if there is enough water for the proper brew size in the reservoir for any
brew style in that size, but all brew styles use different amounts of water to create the
proper flavor and concentration.
Half Carafe
The carafe is designed to keep most of the coffee volume in the bottom so it can be held
closer to the Precise Temp Warming plate. This helps maintain the coffee at the ideal
drinking temperature.
Go to www.ninjacoffeebar.com for more
information and how-to videos.
You can brew multiple cups before needing to refill.
Does it take coffee
pods?
This brewer is designed to brew coffee grounds only. Do not insert pods or K-Cups®.

My Ninja Coffee Bar™
beeped and did not
complete the full brew
that I selected.
Ensure the water reservoir is locked in place and is filled with enough water for the
desired brew.
Check the CLEAN indicator light. If illuminated, run a clean cycle with the appropriate
descaling solution or a white vinegar mixture. See Care & Maintenance section.
Check the Drip Stop indicator light. If illuminated, ensure the brew basket is fully inserted
into the brewer and open the Drip Stop once the vessel is placed under the brew basket.
If the problem persists please call customer service at 1-877-646-5288.
Why is the second cup
that I brewed hotter
than the first brew?
Once the Ninja Coffee Bar™ has brewed the first cup, the brewing system is pre-warmed.
This enables any following brews to be slightly hotter. For a hot first cup try prewarming
your mug.
