How to clean a coffee maker

A coffee maker is a device that prepares hot coffee by passing boiling water through ground coffee beans. It also includes a filter designed to hold the ground coffee and prevent the grains from escaping, and hence leaching into the brewed coffee.

A coffee maker should be efficient and convenient like making other types of food, should brew the perfect cup and take less than five minutes to clean up.

Instructions to clean coffee maker

1. Unplug the coffee maker and allow it to cool. Water left inside the machine may be too hot for you to clean, so unplug it first.

2. Fill the pot with cool water, place it back on the machine, and place a glass measuring cup underneath so you can catch any water that drips out during the cleaning process.

3. Remove the top of the coffee maker, or unclip it so you can remove any pieces that are blocking water from pouring down into the pot of water (pay attention to where all of these pieces go).

4. Filter basket: Remove filter basket and rinse under running water; scrub off any grounds or oils with dish soap and a sponge or brush.

5. Remove the spray head: Unplug the coffee maker and remove any screws holding it in place, then gently pull out the head and empty out any water inside of it. Wipe off excess grounds with a towel or rag.

6. Carafe: Fill carafe with warm soapy water and let soak for a half hour, then scrub with sponge or brush.

7. Cleaning the carafe: Fill with one teaspoon of baking soda and fill with warm water; allow to sit overnight in order to remove any oils or deposits.

8. Rinse all parts thoroughly under running water until there are no more particles or debris.

9. Reassemble the coffee maker and run two cycles of plain water before putting in coffee to brew.
