DO NOT clean the warming plate unless it is completely
cool. DO NOT use abrasive cleansers or scouring pads.
A damaged carafe may result in possible burns from a hot liquid.
To avoid breaking:
1. DO NOT allow all liquid to evaporate from the carafe while on the warming plate
and never heat the glass carafe when empty.
2. DISCARD the carafe if chipped, cracked, or damaged in any manner.
3. NEVER use abrasive scouring pads or cleansers; they will scratch and weaken
