IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

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:

  1. READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
  2. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles and knobs.
  3. To protect against fire, electric shock, and injury to persons, do not place a cord, plug, or base unit in water or other liquids.
  4. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children or individuals with certain disabilities.
  5. 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.
  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, or electrical or mechanical adjustment.
  7. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by Cuisinart may cause fire, electric shock, or injury to persons
  8. Do not use outdoors.
  9. Do not let the cord hang over the edge ofthe 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, turn the power off, then remove the plug from the wall outlet.
  12. Scalding may occur if the filter chamber is opened during the brewing cycle.
  13. Do not use the appliance for anything other than its intended use.
  14. Water in the capsule chamber is very hot during the brewing process. To avoid the risk of injury, do not lift the handle or open the capsule chamber during the brewing process.
  15. Do not overfill the water reservoir with water. Use only water in this appliance! Do not put any other liquids or foods in the water reservoir except as instructed in the cleaning instructions in this guide.
  16. Do not clean the drip tray with cleaners, steel wool pads, or other abrasive materials.
  17. WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT REMOVE THE BASE PANEL. NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS ARE INSIDE. REPAIR SHOULD BE DONE ONLY BY AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL.
  18. Avoid contact with moving parts.
  19. Check the grinder basket for the presence of foreign objects before using it.
  20. Use the coffee grinder to grind roasted coffee beans only. Grinding other substances, such as nuts, spices, or unroasted beans, may dull the blade and cause poor grinding or injury.
  21. Do not place a cloth or otherwise restrict airflow beneath the coffeemaker.
  22. Only use single-serve pods intended for this appliance. If the pod does not fit, do not force the pod into the appliance.
  23. 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.
  24. WARNING: To avoid the risk of injury, do not open the brew chamber during the brew process.

SPECIAL CORD SET INSTRUCTIONS
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.  Longer extension cords may be used if care is exercised in their use. 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.

NOTICE
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.

IMPORTANT UNPACKING INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place the box on a large, sturdy, flat surface.
  2. Remove any literature.
  3. Turn the box so that the back side of the coffeemaker is down and slide the coffeemaker from the box.
  4. After removing the coffeemaker, place the box out of the way and place the inserts back into the box.
  5. Remove the polybag covering the coffeemaker. We suggest you save all packing materials if future shipping of the machine is needed. Keep all plastic bags away from children.

TIPS AND HINTS

  • If you buy large portions of beans, separate them into one-week portions and store them in airtight containers in the freezer. Preserve freshness by minimizing exposure to air, light, and moisture. Once beans are removed from the freezer, keep them in a sealed container at room temperature.
  • Some experts feel freezing dark-roast beans can cause oils to coagulate; others disagree. You’ll need to decide for yourself!

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

CLEANING EXTERNAL PARTS
We recommend regular cleaning of the coffeemaker’s external components.

  1. Never immerse the coffeemaker in water or other liquids. The housing and other external components may be cleaned with a soapy, damp, nonabrasive cloth.
  2. To remove the drip tray, simply pull it up, keeping it level at all times to prevent spills. The drip tray and drip tray plate are dishwasher safe. Do not clean the drip tray with cleaners, steel wool pads, or other abrasive materials.

CLEANING THE CAPSULE HOLDER

  1. The capsule holder is top-shelf dishwasher safe (use low-temperature cycle). To remove, lift the handle to open the brewing chamber. Grasp the top of the capsule holder and pull up.
  2. Cleaning the Funnel – To remove the funnel from the capsule holder, hold the funnel in your left hand, twist the bottom away from you slightly, and pull away from the capsule holder. The funnel is top-rack dishwasher safe
  3. Cuisinart DGB-2 Single Serve Coffee Maker 14 Cleaning the Exit Needle – The exit needle is located on the inside bottom of the capsule holder assembly. Should a clog arise because of coffee grounds, it can be cleaned using a paper clip or similar tool. Remove the capsule holder from the unit, then remove the funnel from the capsule holder and insert the paper clip into the exit needle to loosen the clog and push it out. Replace the funnel with the capsule holder by lining up tabs in the funnel with notches on the capsule holder, and twisting it toward you until it locks into place. After cleaning, replace the capsule holder, making sure to align the arrow on the capsule holder rim with an arrow on the brewing chamber.
  4. Cuisinart DGB-2 Single Serve Coffee Maker 15 Cleaning the Piercing Needle – The piercing needle is located on the inside of the brewing chamber. Should a clog arise because of coffee grounds, it can be cleaned using a paper clip or similar tool. Insert a paper clip to loosen the clog and push it out.

Except as otherwise required under applicable law, this warranty is not available to retailers or other commercial purchasers or owners. We warrant that your Cuisinart® Grind & Brew Single-Serve Coffeemaker will be free of defects in materials and workmanship under normal home use for 3 years from the date of original purchase.

We recommend that you visit our website, https://cuisinart.registria.com, for a fast, efficient way to complete your product registration.

If neither of the above two options results in the appropriate relief to the consumer, the consumer may then take the product to an independent repair facility, if service or repair can be economically accomplished.

Cuisinart and not the consumer will be responsible for the reasonable cost of such service, repair, replacement, or refund for nonconforming products under warranty. California residents may also, according to their preference, return nonconforming products directly to Cuisinart for repair or, if necessary, replacement by calling our Consumer Service Center toll-free at 1-800-726-  0190.
