HELPFUL HINTS

Initial Cleansing Brew – Before you use your Brewer for the first time, perform an initial cleansing brew by running clean water through the brew cycle without using a K-Cup® pack or coffee grounds in the reusable filter.

One Cup at a Time – Your new Brewer makes one fresh beverage at a time. You’ll need to add fresh water each time you brew.

The Right Water Makes a Difference – For the best tasting gourmet coffee, tea or hot cocoa, we recommend using bottled or filtered water. We do not recommend using distilled or reverse osmosis water. Water quality varies from place to place. If you notice an undesirable taste in your cup of coffee such as chlorine or other mineral taste, we recommend you consider using bottled water or water from a filtration system.

Customize Your Flavor & Brew – With 2 ways to brew you can choose your favorite ground coffee or over 200 varieties of K-Cup® Packs, your Brewer gives you endless options to customize the flavor and strength that’s perfect for you. For a strong, intense cup, select an Extra Bold K-Cup® Pack (with up to 30% more ground coffee than regular varieties). Fill the Water Reservoir with filtered or bottled water up to the FILL LEVEL indicator and brew normally.

Brewing Into a Tall Mug – To brew into a tall mug, simply remove the Drip Tray Assembly and place the tall mug on the Drip Tray Base.

The Drip Tray – Any liquid overflow (from your cup) will be caught in the Drip Tray. Be sure to empty the Drip Tray. The Drip Tray has a snug fit to ensure it stays put in transit.

Clean Your Brewer Regularly – To keep your Brewer looking and performing its best, be sure to clean the external and internal components on a regular basis. See page 11 for more information.

De-Scaling – Mineral content in water varies from place to place. Depending on the mineral content of the water in your area, calcium deposits or scale may build up in your Brewer. Scale is non-toxic, but left unattended, it can hinder Brewer performance. De-scaling your Brewer helps maintain the heating element and other internal parts of the Brewer that come in contact with water. See page 13 for more information.

Storing – When storing your Brewer, carefully empty the Drip Tray and make sure the Water Reservoir is empty. Store your Brewer upright in a safe, dry, frost-free environment.

CLEANING AND MAINTAINING YOUR SINGLE SERVE 1.0

Cleaning External Parts

CAUTION: Make sure the Brewer is unplugged before cleaning.

Regular cleaning of the Brewer’s external components is recommended.

  1. The Housing and other external components may be cleaned with a soapy, damp, non-abrasive cloth.
    CautionCAUTION: Never immerse the Brewer in water or other liquids.
  2. The Drip Tray can accumulate liquids. The Drip Tray and Drip Tray Plate should be periodically inspected and cleaned with a damp soapy nonabrasive lint free cloth. The Drip Tray and Drip Tray Plate should not be put into the dishwasher. To remove the Drip Tray Assembly, simply slide it toward you, keeping it level at all times to avoid spilling
Cleaning the K-Cup® Pack Holder Assembly
  1. Cleaning the K-Cup® Figure 1Cleaning the Parts – The K-Cup® Pack Holder Assembly can be placed onto the top shelf of a dishwasher.
    NOTE: Use low temperature cycles in the dishwasher. To remove from the Brewer, pull forward the front face of the Brewer. Grasp the top of the K-Cup® Pack Holder with one hand while pushing up on the bottom of the K-Cup® Pack Holder from underneath with the other until it releases. After cleaning, align the K-Cup® Pack Holder with the opening using the two front ribs as a guide, and snap into place from the top.
  2. Cleaning the Funnel – The Funnel can be removed from the K-Cup® Pack Holder by pulling on it until it snaps off (fig. 1). The Funnel is dishwasher safe. To replace it, just snap it back onto the K-Cup® Pack Holder Assembly.
  3. Cleaning the Exit Needle – The Exit Needle is located on the inside bottom of the K-Cup® Pack Holder Assembly. Should a clog arise due to coffee grinds, it can be cleaned using a clean household tool. Remove K-Cup® Pack Holder assembly and detach Funnel. Insert the household tool into the Needle to loosen the clog and push it out. The K-Cup® Pack Holder is dishwasher safe.
    CautionCAUTION: There are sharp needles that puncture the K-Cup® Pack above the K-Cup® Pack Holder and in the bottom of the K-Cup® Pack Holder. To avoid risk of injury, do not put your fingers in the K-Cup® Pack Assembly Housing.
    NOTE: Over time, discoloration, spotting or staining may appear in the Water Reservoir. This is normal and will vary depending on the mineral content of the bottled or filtered water used in the Brewer and will not affect the operation of the Brewer.
Cleaning the Water Reservoir

To access the Water Reservoir, simply open the Water Reservoir Lid. Inspect the Water Reservoir area and clean with a damp lint free cloth as necessary. Close the Water Reservoir Lid when finished.

Emptying the Water Reservoir
  1. Ensure that the Water Reservoir Lid is closed.
  2. Place a cup on the Drip Plate then press and hold the BREW Button until all the water has been dispensed. Note, there will be a delay of 4-5 seconds until water starts to dispense.
Storage

Empty the Water Reservoir before storing and take care to ensure that you store your Brewer in a safe and frost free environment. It is suggested to store your Brewer in the upright position. If you store the Brewer in a cold environment, you run the risk of condensation freezing inside the Brewer and causing damage. When you prepare to use it after storage, we recommend wiping the Water Reservoir with a damp lint-free cloth and running three cleansing brews without a K-Cup® Pack.

If your Brewer has been in an environment below freezing, please be sure to let it warm to room temperature for 2 hours before using.

De-Scaling Your Brewer

Mineral content in bottled or filtered water varies. Depending on the mineral content of the water, calcium deposits or scale may build up in your Brewer. Scale is non-toxic but left unattended, it can hinder Brewer performance. Descaling your Brewer helps maintain the heating element, and other internal parts of the Brewer that come in contact with water.

The Brewer should be de-scaled every 3-6 months to ensure optimal performance or when there are white deposits in the Water Reservoir. It is possible for calcium deposits to build up faster, making it necessary to de-scale more often.

Step 1: Make sure you have at least 8 ounces of undiluted white vinegar on hand. You will also need a 10 oz ceramic mug (do not use a paper cup) and access to a sink.

Step 2: Fill Water Reservoir with 8 ounces of undiluted white vinegar up to the FILL LEVEL mark, place a ceramic mug on the Drip Tray Plate.

Step 3: Close the lid, and perform a brew into the ceramic mug without adding a K-Cup® Pack.

Step 4: Pour the contents of the ceramic mug into the Water Reservoir, careful the liquid will be hot, close the lid. Start a brew but power off the Brewer just after it starts to dispense and then allow it to sit for at least 30 minutes.

Step 5: After the prescribed period of time, perform a brew without adding a K-Cup® Pack. Empty the contents of the ceramic mug into the sink, be careful as contents may be hot.

Step 6: Fill the Water Reservoir with 8 ounces of bottled water, close the water fill lid, place a cup on the Drip Tray Plate and perform a brew.

Step 7: Repeat Step 6 three times using bottled water (with no K-Cup® Pack in place) to cleanse the Brewer plumbing and get rid of any residual taste from the vinegar. The Brewer is now ready for normal use again.
