  • Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
  • To protect against fire, electric shock and injury to persons do not immerse cords, plugs, or appliances in water or other liquid.
  • Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
  • Unplug from the outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning the appliance.
  • Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug, or after the appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in any manner. Contact Consumer Support at the toll-free number listed in the warranty section.

This product is for household use only.

POLARIZED PLUG (120V Models Only)
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to 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 attempt to modify the plug in any way.

This appliance is equipped with a tamper-resistant screw to prevent removal of the outer cover. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not attempt to remove the outer cover. There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Repair should be done only by authorized service personnel.


  • A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risks of becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
  • Extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
  • If an extension cord is used:
  1. The marked electrical rating of the extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance;
  2. If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord; and
  3. The 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.

If the power cord is damaged, please contact the warranty department listed in these instructions.

How to Use

This product is for household use only.


  • Remove all packing material, any stickers, and plastic bands around the power plug.
  • Wash removable parts as instructed in CARE AND CLEANING.
  • Open the cover and insert the basket-type paper filter into the removable filter basket.
  • Pour fresh cold water up to 12 cups (MAX) into the water reservoir.
  • Brew water through appliances following BREWING COFFEE instructions without coffee grounds.
  • Discard water from the carafe and paper filter.
  • Turn off the coffeemaker, unplug it, and allow it to cool down.


  1. Lift cover. Use water markings on the water window to fill the water reservoir with water to your desired level.
  2. Place a basket-type paper filter into the filter basket. Add ground coffee, (we recommend a heaping tablespoon for every cup). Close the cover.
  3. Place the carafe on the “Keep Hot” carafe plate and plug in the unit.
  4. Toggle the on/off (I/O) switch to turn on (I) the coffeemaker.
  5. Replace the carafe on the “Keep Hot” carafe plate when not serving to keep coffee hot.
  6. Toggle the on/off (I/O) switch to turn off (O) the coffeemaker.

Remove the carafe and brewing is paused. The carafe must be placed back on the “Keep Hot” carafe plate in 30 seconds to prevent overflow. Brewing begins again.

Care and Cleaning

This product contains no user-serviceable parts. Refer service to qualified service personnel. Make sure your coffeemaker is unplugged and cool.

  1. Remove the filter basket. Discard the used paper filter and coffee grounds.
  2. Wash the filter basket, carafe, and carafe lid in the dishwasher (top rack) or by hand in hot water with dish soap.
  3. Wipe the outside of the coffeemaker and carafe plate with a soft, damp cloth.
    Do not use abrasive cleansers or scouring pads. Never immerse the coffeemaker in water.
  4. To clean the inside of the cover, open the cover and leave it in the open position; wipe with a damp cloth.

With regular use, minerals and hard water can clog your coffeemaker. A full cleaning with vinegar is recommended once a month.

  1. Pour white vinegar into the water reservoir up to the 6-cup mark on the water window. Add cold water up to the 12-cup mark.
  2. Put a paper filter in the filter basket and close the cover. Set the empty carafe on the carafe plate.
  3. Turn the coffeemaker on. Let half the cleaning mixture brew into a carafe (until the level is around 6). Turn off the coffeemaker and let it soak for at least 15 minutes.
  4. Turn the coffeemaker on again and brew the remaining cleaning mixture into the carafe. Turn the coffeemaker off; empty the carafe and discard the paper filter.
  5. Fill the reservoir with cold water to the 12-cup line; replace the carafe on the carafe plate and then turn the coffeemaker on for a complete brewing cycle to flush out the remaining cleaning mixture. You may want to repeat this step to completely remove the vinegar smell/taste.
  6. Wash filter basket and carafe as instructed in CARE AND CLEANING.
