Read the instructions, keep them safe, pass them on if you pass the coffee maker on.
Remove all packaging, but keep it in case you ever need to return the coffee maker.
important safeguards
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1 The coffee maker must only be used by or under the supervision of a responsible
adult. Use and store the coffee maker out of reach of children.
2 Don’t put the coffee maker in liquid, don’t use it in a bathroom, near a
source of water, or outdoors.
3Sit the coffee maker on a stable, level, heat-resistant surface.
4 The scald hazard lasts long after boiling. Keep the coffee maker and cable away
from the edges of worktops.
5Steam will collect under the lid. To avoid the risk of scalding, don’t open the lid till
the coffee maker has cooled.
6Check that the lid is properly closed before using the coffee maker.
7 Take care when pouring – don’t over-tilt the carafe.
8Don’t connect the coffee maker to an external timer or remote control system.
9Don’t touch hot surfaces e.g. carafe or hotplate. Use the handle and grip.
10 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang and can’t be caught or tripped over.
11 Unplug the coffee maker when not in use, before moving or cleaning. Let it cool
down before cleaning and storing away.
12 Fill the coffee maker from a jug or the carafe, not directly from the tap.
13 Don’t fill the coffee maker above the max mark.
14 Put the carafe on the hotplate before brewing.
15 To stop the coffee maker, press the [ button. The light will go out.
16 Before adding water, or reusing the coffee maker, let it cool for 10 minutes, to avoid
spitting.
17 Don’t use the coffee maker for any purpose other than those described in these
instructions.
18 Don’t put the carafe in a microwave oven.
19 Don’t try to reposition the carafe handle. You risk breaking the glass.
20Keep the coffee maker, carafe, and cable away from hotplates, hobs, and burners.
21Don’t use accessories unless we provide them.
22Don’t use the coffee maker if it’s damaged or malfunctions.
23If the cable or plug is damaged, return the coffee maker, to avoid hazard.
household use only
before using for the first time
Fill the reservoir to the max mark with water, and run the coffee maker without coffee.
When it’s finished, discard the hot water and clean the coffee maker.

your coffee hot, then it’ll switch the hotplate off, the light will go out, and the
display will darken.
animated display
21While the coffee is brewing, the display will show a tumbler pouring into a carafe.
22After the coffee has brewed, while it’s keeping the coffee warm, the display will
show a full carafe.
pouring
23To pour, remove the carafe from the hotplate, and pour from the spout.
24Replace the carafe on the hotplate to keep your coffee warm.
25You may notice some resistance when you replace the carafe – this is caused by the
top of the carafe pushing against the non-drip valve.
a quick cup
26You may remove the carafe to pour coffee at any time. The non-drip valve will stop
coffee dripping on to the hotplate.
27To avoid overflowing, replace the carafe within 30 seconds. This may not sound
much, but its more than enough time to pour a couple of cups.
finished?
28When the carafe is empty, press the [ button to switch the hotplate off.
29Unplug the coffee maker and let it cool down fully before cleaning, or for 10 minutes
before refilling.
caution beware of steam when you open the lid
ground coffee
30If you want to buy ready-ground coffee, medium-ground or filter-ground coffee will
give you the best results. The amount will vary with the type of coffee and your
individual taste. We suggest starting with two rounded teaspoons per cup.

storing coffee
31Coffee is best kept in an airtight container in a cool dry place, or in the fridge.
Exposure to air oxidises coffee and allows the flavour to evaporate.
milk
32There’s a great deal of contention on the subject of milk in coffee. Our view is that
personal taste should rule, not convention.
33If you like milk in your coffee, use warm or hot milk, to avoid overcooling the coffee.
34To extract maximum flavour from the coffee, it should be cool enough not to scald
or burn the mouth, but hot enough to let the flavour fill the mouth, nose and
sinuses, not just the taste buds.
bottled water
35If you use bottled water, check that there are no added ingredients, flavourings, etc.
and use still water, not sparkling. The carbon dioxide which gives the sparkle will
adversely affect the flavour of your coffee.
taste
36Don’t be tempted to reheat coffee in the coffee maker. You’ll damage the coffee
maker and the coffee will be undrinkable.
37Clean the filter holder, filter, and carafe after each use. Residue from a previous brew
will spoil your coffee.
38If left for much more than about an hour, chemical changes in the coffee liquor start
to affect the flavour. It’s best to pour it away and make a fresh pot.
care and maintenance
39Unplug the coffee maker and let it cool down fully.
40Use the grip to open the lid.
41Use the filter handle to lift out the filter, then tip the used coffee grounds into the
bin.
42Use the tabs on the filter holder to lift the filter holder out of the coffee maker.
43Wipe the outer surfaces of the coffee maker with a damp cloth.
44Wash the filter, filter holder and carafe in warm soapy water, rinse thoroughly and
dry.
45Replace the filter holder in the coffee maker, with the non-drip valve to the front.
46Replace the filter in the filter holder.
47Use the grip to close the coffee maker lid.
48Replace the carafe on the hotplate.
49Don’t wash any part in a dishwasher.
50Don’t put the coffee maker in any liquid.
51Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaners or solvents.
descale regularly – even in soft water areas
Limescale may be white, coloured, even rusty-looking, but it’s normally visible.
Phosphate scale isn’t generally visible, but it’s there, even in soft water areas.
All scale causes overheating, and reduces the life of the coffee maker.
So, even with soft water, descale regularly, to help keep your coffee maker in working
order.
6
Use a proprietary brand of descaler suitable for use in plastic-bodied products. Follow
the instructions on the package of descaler. When descaling has finished, empty the
carafe and operate the coffee maker twice more with fresh water, but without coffee.
Discard the water to ensure that no chemical residues are left in the coffee maker.
,Products returned under guarantee with faults due to scale will be subject to a
repair charge.
