Cleaning your Cuisinart Coffee Maker

Cleaning your Cuisinart coffee maker can help to keep it functioning and your coffee brewing efficiently, so it’s important to take some time to clean it occasionally. Here’s how to do it:

Materials Needed:

  • White vinegar
  • Small container for vinegar
  • Soft, non-abrasive cloth
  • Protective gloves
  • Coffee pot


  1. Put on protective gloves and pour white vinegar into a small container. The ratio of vinegar to water should be 1:1.
  2. Put the carafe on the Cuisinart and set it to the clean setting.
  3. Pour the vinegar solution into the water chamber and place the coffee pot on the hot plate.
  4. Press the start button to begin the cleaning cycle.
  5. CAUTION: The cleaning process takes about one hour.
  6. When the cycle is finished, take off the coffee pot and wait for the machine to cool down.
  7. Unplug the machine and discard the vinegar solution.
  8. Wipe all exterior parts with a damp cloth, making sure to get all the crevices around the hot plate.
  9. Use a soft, non-abrasive cloth to wipe the inner parts. Be sure to clean the filter basket and lid, as well as the water chamber.
  10. Replace the parts, plug in the machine and run a cycle of just water to flush out any remaining vinegar.

Cleaning your Cuisinart coffee maker is an important part of keeping it functioning properly. Taking the time to do it occasionally will ensure that your coffee maker works efficiently, so you can enjoy the perfect cup of coffee every time.
