Coffee on the Countertop!

No matter how you hold the pot or what you do, there is no you can pour a cup of coffee without getting at least a quarter cup on the counter. It's not just me...everyone who tries to pour a cup has the same problem.

This is how my husband pours: he holds the lid open with the thumb lever and pours. It seems to work better if you pour slow. (I am always in too much of a hurry:)

Is it difficult to make Turkish coffee?

it doesn't really matter what bean you use to make Turkish coffee, what really matters is the pot that you make it in. An Ibrik is a traditional Turkish coffee pot which you can fill two thirds full with water. Add sugar and a heaped teaspoon of coffee. The coffee creates a seal at the narrow top. As you bring it to the boil the coffee with foam. You should let it foam three times before pouring into small cups. Let the grounds settle to the bottom of the cup before you drink it and don't stir it just before drinking.

How do I use vinegar to clean my coffee pot? I heard it was a good method but have no idea what to do with it.

For a 12 cup coffee maker. Fill the coffee pot (the part that holds the water) with 6 cups of vinegar and then top up with water until you reach the line. Now turn it on as if you were making regular coffee. Once the hot vinegar has come through, pour it into the water cavity and run the cycle again.

Now you can tip the vinegar out and clean out the coffee pot with soapy water. Run another cycle but with plain water this time and after that you should be able to use your machine without any leftover residue from the vinegar.

No pot or instructions, how much water do you put in the coffee pot?Need a replacement pot for vp17 series. thank you

You should be able to pick up a replacement/new pot at your nearest Restaurant Supply store. Make sure you get a 64 oz./ 1/2 gallon pot.
Before plugging in your brewer, unscrew the sprayhead located just above where the filter basket sits and replace the basket, pour 3 pots of cold water through the opening on the top if the brewer is empty. This brewer has a reservoir that holds about 2 1/2 pots of water at brewing temperature when heated. Make sure you put an empty pot under the filter basket after pouring in the water. Water will flow from the brew basket when the reservoir has reached its capacity. Once water flows you can then plug in and energize your brewer and replace the sprayhead. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes for the brewer to reach brew temp, you will hear the heating stop. Put an empty filter and a dose of coffee (I recommend starting with a heaping measuring cup of drip ground coffee) into the filter basket, lightly shake it level, replace the basket and pour through 1 full pot of COLD water in the top. For best results pour the brewed coffee into a pre-heated thermal server if you plan on holding the coffee for more than 10 minutes or so.

I love my Cuisinart 10 cup coffee maker, but I hate my pot. Every time I pour a cup of coffee the pot leaks. I have tried removing the lid and the pot still leaks. Please help I am getting tired of...

Be careful! The top will soon disconnect from the bottom! I've had the same problem for the last few months. This morning (11/19/10) the top of the pot seperated when I poured a cup of coffee and half a pot of piping hot coffee spilled down my right leg. I'm on hold with their customer service department as I type this. Has anybody else had the same issue?

Coffee starts dripping down before I can get the water all poured in and the pot on the warmer, causing a mess.

This is common with bunn coffee makers, if you are not fast enough, coffee starts dripping. The only solution I found is to use a water pitcher, first fill coffee pot to cup mark you are using, then pour into pitcher, put pot back on machine, then pour in water. You can mark a line on picture, so you know where to fill to each time.

GE coffee maker with grinder 169103

We were unable to find a coffee pot that fit this model after it was broken so my roomate devised a solution to make it work in the meantime. He took the little plastic tab that closes off a bag of bread and used it under the filter in the filter cup to clip around the devise that holds the brewer open and let the coffee pour out below. Then we used a four cup Pyrex measuring cup underneath to catch the coffee. The first time I tried this without the device the coffee flooded out of the pot and all over the sink and not in the Pyrex because I didn't realize the previous pot held this device open. Just remember to let it finish brewing because it doesn't shut off when you remove the pot once you rig this up. A paper clip might work also. Good Luck!

More Steam Less Coffee

I had same problem after 4 months. very slow brew time, 10 cups of water poured in made about 6 cups of coffee. I used a packaged coffee pot cleaner powder and this fixed the problem (for now).
