Cuisinart CPO-850 Coffee Brewer


When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be taken to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and/or injury to persons, including the following:

  2. Always 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.
  3. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles and knobs.
  4. To protect against electric shock, do not place the cord, plug, or base unit in water or other liquids.
  5. This appliance should not be used by or near children or individuals with certain disabilities.
  6. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug, or after the appliance malfunctions or has been dropped or damaged in any manner. Return the appliance to the nearest Cuisinart Repair Center for examination, repair, and electrical or mechanical adjustment.
  7. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by Cuisinart may cause injuries.
  8. Do not use outdoors.
  9. Do not let the cord hang over the edge of the table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
  10. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven.
  11. Always fill the water reservoir first, then plug the cord into the wall outlet. To disconnect, push the BREW/OFF button, then remove the plug from the wall outlet.
  12. Do not use the appliance for other than its intended use.
  13. Snap the lid securely onto the carafe before serving any beverages.
  14. Scalding may occur if the lid is removed during the brewing cycle.
  15. The thermal carafe is designed for use with these appliances only. It must never be used on the range top
  16. Do not use a cracked carafe or a carafe that has a loose or weakened handle.
  17. Do not clean the carafe or resting plate with cleansers, steel wool pads, or other abrasive materials.
  19. Do not place cloth beneath the coffee brewer or otherwise restrict airflow.
  20. Use only the Cuisinart® Laser-EtchedStainless Steel Filter, a gold tone filter, or standard #4 cone paper filters with this unit. OTHER PERMANENT FILTERS MAY CAUSE THE COFFEE BREWER TO OVERFLOW.
  21. Do 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.
  22. The container is designed for use with this appliance. It must never be used on a range top.

A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Extension cords may be used if care is exercised in their use. If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the extension cord must be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, and the longer 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.

This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, 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 modify the plug in any way.

Clogging and backing up of water and/or 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 the stainless steel filter in conjunction with a paper filter, or not properly cleaning coffee grounds from the stainless steel filter, or allowing coffee grounds to spill over the filter.

Never open the filter basket during the brewing cycle, even if no water is draining from the filter basket, because extremely hot water/coffee can spill out from the filter basket and cause injury. If water/coffee is not draining from the filter basket during the brewing cycle, unplug the unit and wait 10 minutes before opening and checking the filter basket.

Always turn the coffee brewer off and remove the plug from the electrical outlet before cleaning. Lift the coffee brewer lid. Remove and discard the paper filter and ground coffee. The filter basket can be washed in warm, soapy water and rinsed thoroughly, or cleaned on the upper rack of the dishwasher. Dry all parts after use. Do not put any water in the unit once the filter basket has been removed. Wipe the area under the filter basket with a damp cloth. Remove the carafe from the resting plate. Discard any remaining coffee. The carafe and lid can be washed in warm, soapy water and rinsed thoroughly, or placed in a dishwasher.

The carafe and carafe lid should be placed on the upper rack only. Do not use any scouring agents or harsh cleaners on any part of the coffee brewer. Never immerse the base unit in water or other liquids. To clean the base, simply wipe with a clean, damp cloth and dry before storing. F ingerprints and other blemishes on the housing can be washed off with soap and water or a nonabrasive cleaning solution. Wipe the resting plate with a clean, damp cloth. Never use rough, abrasive materials or cleansers to clean the heating plate. Do not dry the inside of the water reservoir with a cloth, as lint may remain.

Any other servicing should be performed by an authorized service representative.

Decalcification refers to the removal of calcium deposits that form over time on the metal parts of your coffee brewer. The mineral content of the tap water in your areaand the frequency of use affect the rate of calcium buildup, which can affect the functioning of your coffee brewer and the flavor of your coffee. For the best performance from your PurePrecisionPour-Over Thermal Coffee Brewer, we recommend cleaning it whenever CLEAN is flashing on your control panel.
Before decalcifying your unit, remove the charcoal water filter from the water reservoir.

To clean:

  1. Fill the water reservoir with a mixture of 1 ⁄3 white vinegar and 2 ⁄3 water.
  2. Press the ENU button 4 times to get to CLEAN START. Press BREW/OFF to begin the cleaning cycle.
  3. When the cycle is completed, 5 beeps will sound and the coffee brewer will shut off.
  4. If CLEAN flashes once more, repeat the cleaning procedure with a fresh solution of vinegar and water.
    One cleaning cycle is usually sufficient.
  5. When CLEAN remains off, run one cycle with a full reservoir of fresh, cold water to rinse the unit.
  6. Return the charcoal water filter to the holder inside the water reservoir and your coffee brewer is ready to brew!
