  • Page 6: Using The Coffee Urn

    Before first use • Remove packaging materials, labels and stickers from the coffee urn. • Clean the coffee urn thoroughly before using for the first time ( Cleaning). NOTE: To clear the coffee urn of any residue, fill to the maximum level mark on the side of the tank (6) with fresh water. Run a full brewing cycle. Repeat this procedure at least once. Using the coffee urn Intended use: the coffee urn is intended for brewing coffee and for keeping coffee warm over an extended period of time. • Pour desired amount of water into the water tank (6) (ill. a ). NOTE: For the best results, always use cold, fresh tap water. • The water level can be monitored using the embossed water level markings on the side of the tank (6). DO NOT OVERFILL THE COFFEE URN. • Insert percolator tube (5) in heat well (14) (ill. b ). Attach coffee basket (4) to percolator tube (5) (ill. b ). Do not use the urn without having inserted both tube and basket! • According to the chart below, measure out desired amount coffee grounds in...
  • Page 7 • Wet coffee basket (4) to prevent smaller/finer coffee grounds from sifting through into water. • Fill ground coffee into coffee basket (4). Do not spill coffee grounds in the percolator tube (5) (ill. c ). Spread coffee evenly in coffee basket (4). • Place the lid (2) on the coffee urn and turn until it locks in place (ill. d ). Connect the power cable (13) with the power socket (12) (ill. e ). Insert power plug • (13) into a standard 120 V AC wall outlet. The appliance will automatically begin brewing. The ready indicator (11) lights blue to indicate that the brewing is under process (ill. f ). NOTICE: To avoid damage to the appliance, do not plug in urn when there is no water or liquid inside. The appliance is equipped with an automatic shut-off function if not enough water remains in the appliance. This may, however, shorten the life of the appliance. How the brewing process works The coffee urn will now heat up the water in the tank (6). Boiling water will move up the percolator tube (5), into the coffee basket (4). Water runs through the ground coffee and slowly drips back into the water tank (6) (ill. g ). Please allow the coffee to brew for about one minute per cup, i.e., the brewing time for 40 cups will take around 40 minutes.
  • Page 8 • The coffee urn will automatically switch to the Keep Warm cycle, and will maintain fresh, hot coffee until it is unplugged. If brewed coffee is to be kept warm for a long period of time, percolator tube (5) and coffee basket (4) should be removed after brewing is complete. This will prevent bitter oils in the coffee grounds from affecting the flavor of the coffee. Temporarily disconnect the power plug (13) from the wall outlet, and wait 5 minutes before carefully lifting up the lid (2). Remove percolator tube and coffee basket, using oven mitts. Then reattach the lid and reconnect power plug with the wall outlet. • After coffee has been dispensed, disconnect the power plug (13) from the wall outlet then remove from the coffee urn and allow the urn to cool before cleaning (ill. j ). NOTE: To reheat coffee, remove coffee basket (4) and percolator tube (5). Lock the lid in place and plug in the unit and turn on for 20 to 60 minutes, depending on the amount of coffee remaining. Do not reheat if less than 20 cups are left in the urn. To heat water Use the coffee urn to heat water for making tea, instant soups, hot cocoa, etc. NOTE: Percolator tube (2) and coffee basket (4) are not required for heating water.
