Before First Use
CAUTION: To protect against electrical shock, do not immerse the
Coffeemaker or allow AC cord to come into contact with water or other liquids.
1. Remove all packing material from the inside and outside of the
Coffeemaker.
2. Before preparing coffee in your new Coffeemaker, thoroughly
clean the Glass Carafe, Carafe Lid and Removable Filter Basket in
hot, sudsy water. Rinse and dry.
3. Replace disassembled parts.
4.
Cone-shaped paper filters are available locally at grocery stores and
where Coffeemakers are sold. Standard #4 filters should be used.
Automatic Drip Coffeemaker Use and Care Guide
A clean Coffeemaker is essential for making great tasting coffee.
Regular cleaning, as specified in "Care and Cleaning of your
Coffeemaker" on page 10 is highly recommended.
Always use fresh, cold water in your Coffeemaker.
Finer grinds, such as drip and ADC coffee, promote fuller extraction
and provide rich, full-bodied coffee. Regular grind will require slightly
more coffee per cup to provide the strength of a finer grind.
Store coffee in a cool, dry place. Once coffee has been opened,
keep it tightly sealed in the refrigerator to maintain freshness.
For optimum coffee, buy whole beans and grind them finely just
before brewing.
Do not re-use coffee grounds since this will greatly impair coffee flavor.
Reheating coffee is not recommended. Coffee is at its peak flavor
immediately after brewing.
Small oil droplets on the surface of brewed, black coffee is due to the
extraction of oil from the coffee grounds. Oiliness may occur more
frequently if heavily roasted coffees are used. Overextraction may also
cause oiliness, indicating a need to clean your Coffeemaker.

Care And Cleaning
Carafe Safety Precautions
Always make sure Coffeemaker is unplugged and in the OFF position and
Warming Plate is cool before attempting to clean. After daily use, the Filter
Basket and Glass Carafe should be washed in hot, sudsy water. Wipe exterior
with a damp cloth to remove superficial stains. For stubborn stains, use a
nylon or plastic pad with a non-abrasive cleanser, such as Bon Ami® or Arm
& Hammer®. Do not use metal scouring pads or abrasive cleansers.
1. Do not use a cracked Carafe having a loose or weakened handle.
Descaling
Special cleaning of your Coffeemaker is recommended at least once a
month, depending on frequency of use and quality of water used in the
unit. If water in your area is especially hard, the following cleaning
procedure should be performed every two weeks, since minerals in water
can detract from the flavor of the coffee and possibly lengthen brew time.
1. Fill Glass Carafe with one part white vinegar to three parts cold
water. Pour water and vinegar solution into the Water Chamber.
2. Place a paper filter or permanent filter in the Removable Filter Basket
and swing to closed position. Place Glass Carafe on Warming Plate.
Switch Power Select Button to ON. During cleaning, more steam will
occur than during normal brewing.
3. KEEP THE COFFEEMAKER ON UNTIL CARAFE IS HALF FULL.
Switch Power Select Button to OFF. When liquid stops dripping from

Carafe and allow liquid to cool in the Glass Carafe for 10 minutes.
When cooled, pour liquid back into the Water Chamber.
2. This Carafe is designed to be used only on the warming plate of
your coffeemaker. Do not use on a conventional oven.
3. To avoid breakage, handle carafe with care. Avoid impact. Glass
will break as a result of impact. Use care when filling with water to
avoid hitting faucet.
4. Do not place hot carafe on cool or wet surface. Allow to cool
before washing or adding liquids.
5. Do not set empty carafe on a hot heating surface. Do not clean
with steel wool pads, abrasive cleanser, or any other materials that
may scratch.
6. Do not bump, scratch, or boil dry.
7. Discard carafe if it is cracked, scratched, or heated while empty for
an extended period of time.
Cord Storage
Unplug appliance and allow to cool. There is convenient cord storage
area at the back of the machine. Simply feed the Cord inside the
Storage area and store in its box or in a clean, dry place.
4. Replace Basket and return Glass Carafe to hot plate.
5. Switch Power Select Button to ON. Repeat procedure, allowing all
the cleaning solution to empty into the Glass Carafe. After
dripping has stopped, discard contents of Glass Carafe.
6. After allowing Coffeemaker to cool for 10 minutes, rinse it out by
brewing a Glass Carafe full of cold water. Make sure to insert a
fresh Filter into the Filter Basket before brewing.
7. At end of brew cycle, switch Power Select Button to OFF. Discard

procedure should be performed every two weeks, since minerals in water
can detract from the flavor of the coffee and possibly lengthen brew time.
1. Fill Glass Carafe with one part white vinegar to three parts cold
water. Pour water and vinegar solution into the Water Chamber.
2. Place a paper filter or permanent filter in the Removable Filter Basket
and swing to closed position. Place Glass Carafe on Warming Plate.
Switch Power Select Button to ON. During cleaning, more steam will
occur than during normal brewing.
3. KEEP THE COFFEEMAKER ON UNTIL CARAFE IS HALF FULL.
Switch Power Select Button to OFF. When liquid stops dripping from
Filter Holder into the Glass Carafe, remove the Basket and Glass
Carafe and allow liquid to cool in the Glass Carafe for 10 minutes.
When cooled, pour liquid back into the Water Chamber.
2. This Carafe is designed to be used only on the warming plate of
your coffeemaker. Do not use on a conventional oven.
3. To avoid breakage, handle carafe with care. Avoid impact. Glass
will break as a result of impact. Use care when filling with water to
avoid hitting faucet.
4. Do not place hot carafe on cool or wet surface. Allow to cool
before washing or adding liquids.
5. Do not set empty carafe on a hot heating surface. Do not clean
with steel wool pads, abrasive cleanser, or any other materials that
may scratch.
6. Do not bump, scratch, or boil dry.
7. Discard carafe if it is cracked, scratched, or heated while empty for
an extended period of time.
Cord Storage
Unplug appliance and allow to cool. There is convenient cord storage
area at the back of the machine. Simply feed the Cord inside the
Storage area and store in its box or in a clean, dry place.
4. Replace Basket and return Glass Carafe to hot plate.
5. Switch Power Select Button to ON. Repeat procedure, allowing all
the cleaning solution to empty into the Glass Carafe. After
dripping has stopped, discard contents of Glass Carafe.
6. After allowing Coffeemaker to cool for 10 minutes, rinse it out by
brewing a Glass Carafe full of cold water. Make sure to insert a
fresh Filter into the Filter Basket before brewing.
7. At end of brew cycle, switch Power Select Button to OFF. Discard
water in the Glass Carafe. Remove used filter and wash Glass Carafe
and Filter Basket in hot sudsy water. Dry parts.
8. When Coffeemaker has cooled, wipe exterior with a dry cloth.
