Care And Cleaning - Presto 02811 Instructions

12-cup stainless steel coffee maker


3. Be sure that the washer on the bottom of the perk tube moves freely. If the washer is stuck, clean it with a brush.
4. Make sure the washer on the perk tube is positioned on top of the perk well in the bottom of the pot.
5. Before making consecutive pots of coffee, always rinse out the coffee maker with COLD water.

Care and Cleaning

1. Unplug cord from electrical outlet and then remove from coffee maker. Allow the coffee maker to cool before cleaning.
2. Hold onto the coffee maker handle with one hand. Position your other hand so that the heel is resting on the cover on the spout side
of the coffee maker and your fingers are grasping the cover knob. Pressing down with the heel of your hand, tilt the cover towards
the spout side of the coffee maker. Pull the cover off. Discard coffee grounds and filter.
3. Wash and rinse inside of coffee maker, cover, and basket assembly with warm, soapy water after each use. The perk tube, including
the washer, and spout can be cleaned with a brush. CAUTION! To prevent electrical shock and damage to the coffee maker, do not
immerse coffee maker in water or other liquid or allow the plug receptacle or base to get wet.
4. Wipe outside surface with a damp cloth. Thoroughly dry with a towel. IMPORTANT: Keep the plug receptacle area dry. If you
notice any moisture, dry thoroughly before use.
5. To keep the coffee maker functioning properly, periodically remove oil, stains, and any sediment from inside the coffee maker. To
clean, add water up to the 12 mark. Then prepare the coffee maker as you would for making a full pot of coffee, except add 3 table-
spoons of automatic dishwashing detergent to the basket in place of the coffee and do not use a disposable filter.
Once the signal light illuminates, allow the coffee maker to remain plugged in for 15 to 20 minutes. Unplug the coffee maker, pour
out the cleaning solution, and then rinse the inside of the coffee maker and the parts with running water. Fill the coffee maker with
fresh water up to the 12 mark and perk again. Pour out the water and thoroughly rinse the inside of the coffee maker and the parts.
Depending on the severity of the staining, it may be necessary to repeat this cleaning procedure.
