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

  • Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
  • To protect against electric shock, do not immerse the cord, plugs, or machine in water or other liquids.
  • Close adult supervision is necessary when this appliance is used by or near children.
  • Turn the unit off and unplug it from the outlet when Coffeemaker is 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. Return this appliance only to the nearest Authorized Service Center for examination, repair, or adjustment.
  • The use of accessory attachments is not recommended for MR. COFFEE® products may cause hazards or injuries.
  • Do not use outdoors. This Coffeemaker is for household use only.
  • Do not let the cord hang over the edge of the table or countertop or touch hot surfaces.
  • Do not place this appliance on or near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated oven.
  • To disconnect, remove the plug from the wall outlet.
  • Do not use the appliance for anything other than its intended use.
  • Use on a hard, flat-level surface only, to avoid interruption of airflow underneath the appliance.

Decanter Use and Care

Breakage may occur if the following instructions are not followed: Use only decanters specifically designed for MR. COFFEE® Coffeemakers.

  • This decanter is designed for use with your MR. COFFEE® Coffeemaker and therefore must never be used on a range top or in any oven, INCLUDING A MICROWAVE.
  • Do not set a hot decanter on a wet or cold surface.
  • Do not use a cracked decanter or a decanter with a loose or weakened handle.
  • Do not clean the decanter with cleansers, steel wool pads or other abrasive materials.
  • Discard the decanter immediately if it is ever boiled dry.
  • Avoid sharp blows, scratches or rough handling.

To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not remove any service covers. No user-serviceable parts inside. Repair should be done by authorized personnel only. Opening the bottom service cover will void the warranty.

Special Cord Set Instructions

  1. A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the hazards resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
  2. An extension cord may be purchased and used if care is exercised in its use.
  3. If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the extension cord must be at least 10 amps and 120 volts. The resulting extended cord must be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over accidentally.
    This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not modify the plug in any way.

Setting Up Your Coffeemaker

Congratulations on the purchase of your new MR. COFFEE® coffeemaker! Please read these instructions carefully before using your new coffeemaker. Proper use, care and maintenance will ensure trouble-free operation and the long life of this appliance. Save these instructions for cleaning and, if necessary, replacement parts information.

Operation and Use

Before First Use
Before using your Coffeemaker for the first time, wash the decanter/lid and removable brew basket (black) using mild, non-abrasive detergent and water. Rinse each thoroughly. Follow Steps 4 – 6 (Brewing Coffee) using water, to clean the inside.

Brewing Coffee

  1. Open the swing-out brew basket. Insert an MR. COFFEE® 4-Cup filter into the black inner brew basket.
  2. Add the desired amount of coffee, referring to the Coffee Measurement Chart. (See Page 7) Shake lightly to level the coffee.
  3. Be sure the paper filter is centered before closing the brew basket.
  4. Fill the decanter with cold water to desired capacity as marked on the side of the decanter (1 cup = 5 oz). To brew 4 cups of coffee, fill the decanter to the bottom of the metal band.
  5. Pour the water into the water reservoir. Note: For easy and accurate filling, refer to cup markings inside the reservoir. Place the empty decanter onto the warming plate.
  6. Plug the cord into the electrical outlet and turn your Coffeemaker switch to the “ON” position. When the coffee stops flowing, the brewing cycle is complete.
    Note: The warming plate will keep your coffee piping hot until you turn your Coffeemaker off.
  7. After the contents have cooled, carefully remove the one-piece brew basket and discard the used grounds and filter. Rinse the inner brew basket and replace it.
    Note: Remove the decanter from the warming plate before opening the brew basket. This will prevent the drip stop valve from catching on the decanter lid.
  8. To make another pot of coffee, repeat Steps 1 – 7.
  9. Be sure to turn your Coffeemaker off when the decanter is empty and you are no longer using your Coffeemaker. Please unplug the power cord when not in use.
    Warning: To avoid the risk of personal injury or damage to property as a result of overflow, be sure the decanter is squarely centered under the brew basket during the brewing cycle. Brewed coffee and grounds, both in the brew basket and decanter, are very hot. Handle with care to avoid scalding. If the brew basket overflows, or if the brew basket fails to drain into the decanter during the brew cycle, do not open or handle the basket. Unplug Coffeemaker and wait for the contents to cool before handling them.

For best results, use a level coffee scoop of fresh coffee beans. When using pre-ground coffee, use a level tablespoon (Tbsp.) or level coffee scoops of drip grind or a grind recommended for automatic drip coffeemakers.

Our Brewing Pause ‘n Serve feature allows you up to 30 seconds to pour a cup while the coffee is still brewing. It also prevents any remaining coffee in the brew basket from dripping onto the warming plate once the brew cycle is complete.

To prevent injury from hot overflow, replace the decanter within 30 seconds if removed during brewing. If the decanter is not replaced within 30 seconds, the filter basket will fill with water and overflow.

Your Coffeemaker must be cleaned when you begin to notice excessive steaming or the brewing time increases considerably. This condition is caused by a build-up of lime and mineral deposits from your water. If the pumping action stops before all the water has been pumped out of the machine, the appliance requires cleaning. The frequency of cleaning depends on the hardness of the water used. The following table gives a suggested cleaning schedule.
