Pro line series coffee maker
Hide thumbs


If message tones are enabled, the coffee maker will beep
once when the water reservoir is near full.
After filling the reservoir, place the carafe on the coffee maker
warming plate.
Grasp the brew basket handle and remove the brew basket
from the front of the coffee maker.
Make certain the plastic brew basket insert is placed in the brew
basket. Insert a 10-12 cup flat-bottom paper filter or the optional
permanent filter into the brew basket. Using the included scoop,
fill the filter with one rounded scoop of ground coffee for each
cup desired. Add more coffee for a stronger brew, less for a
weaker brew. Use a medium grind appropriate for automatic drip
coffee makers: too fine a grind will produce bitterness and may
cause water to overflow the brew basket.
Slide the brew basket into the coffee maker as far as possible.
To begin brewing, turn the Auto-On/Off Switch clockwise to
the "On/Off" position, then release. The on/off indicator light
will illuminate when the coffee maker is on. Do not remove the
carafe from the coffee maker until brewing is complete.
