The more often the unit is used the more often it should be cleaned. KoffeeOne suggest cleaning the machine after six to eight hours of constant use. If the coffee maker is not cleaned the coffee may have a bitter or burned taste. It is easy to clean the machine.

Allow It To Cool Down

After using the coffee machine all day it still may be warm when it comes to cleaning time. The machine has to be completely cooled. The power should be shut off and all parts of the machine should be cool to the touch. This may take some time and patience waiting.

Hand Washing

It is important to wash the filter basket and the brewing pot by hand. Hot and soapy water should be used. They may be loaded in a dishwasher as long as the parts state that they are dishwasher safe. Both pieces need to be cleaned very well.

Remove Stains

Stains are unappealing when they are left on the coffee pot. Fill the pot with ice and then cover it with salt. This will help to remove the stains. This mixture should be stirred for around five minutes and dumped out. The pot should then be cleaned with warm water.

Clean The Maker

There are commercial coffee cleaners that can be used. You can also use a simple mixture of white vinegar and water. The correct mixture is one third part white vinegar to two thirds water. Be sure to make enough of this mixture to full the brewing pot so it can be cleaned properly.

Cleaning The Pot

Once the vinegar mixture is in the coffee pot be sure to run it on the brew cycle at least once. To get the best results you should run this mixture through three times. After the vinegar and water is removed from the pot add some clean water to it. Put the coffee on the brew cycle once again. This will help get rid of the taste of vinegar from the coffee pot.
