HELPFUL HINTS
• Use only fresh, cold tap water in the appliance.
• Use MR. COFFEE® 8-12 cup basket filters for best brewing performance.
• The steeping lever may be moved to the right for stronger tea or the left for weaker tea,
to suit your taste. Additional tea bags may be needed when using herbal tea.
• If your ice supply is low, you may substitute cold water. After filling the water reservoir
with the proper amount of water, refill the pitcher with cold tap water a second time to
the desired 1, 2, 3 Quart Water Level. NOTE: Do not fill to the Ice Level as this will
cause an overflow.
• Tea may turn cloudy as it chills due to tannic acids found in tea.
CLEANING
• To maintain the quality of all the parts and minimize tea stains, we recommend washing
the pitcher/lid, and brew basket, with warm water and mild detergent after each use.
• Hard water can leave mineral deposits inside the pitcher and brew basket. To remove,
fill the brew basket and pitcher with warm, undiluted, white household vinegar.
Let soak for 20 minutes. Rinse.
• Do not use harsh, abrasive cleaners. They will cause scratches which can lead to breakage.
DELIMING
Your appliance must be delimed when you begin to notice an increase in steaming or
if the pumping action stops before all the water has been pumped out of the appliance.
The frequency of cleaning depends on the hardness of your water. Refer to chart.
TO DELIME, FOLLOW THESE EASY INSTRUCTIONS.
1. Pour 1 quart (32 oz.) of undiluted white household vinegar into the water reservoir.
2. Place the pitcher lid on the pitcher. Slide the pitcher under the appliance.
3. Push the “ON” button to begin brewing cycle. After 1 cup of vinegar has pumped
into the pitcher, unplug appliance. Let stand 30 minutes.
4. Re-plug the cord. Your appliance will automatically continue to pump out the
remaining vinegar.
5. When your appliance shuts off, unplug the cord, remove the pitcher.
Discard the vinegar.
6. Fill the pitcher with clear tap water to the water level marked on the pitcher.
Repeat Steps 1-5 without vinegar. Repeat if necessary.
