Warm water is said to contain more impurities than cold water, like lead. Warm water takes more lead from your home plumbing, than cold water.

So it's not advised to use warm water for boiling...

Do you have to boil water in something else first


No, it's an electric coffee pot, it heats the water and makes the coffee simultaneously.

I have inherited a west bend slow cooker model 84624 and dont have a manuel for it. I am concerned with the 300 watt is this normal? Or is that very low? I dont know how long to cook in this or amounts...


  • 1 Use setting 1 (warm #1) only to warm rolls and muffins. At 140 degrees Fahrenheit, this setting should not be used for cooking.
  • 2 Use setting 2 (warm #2) to keep cooked foods warm until they're ready to be served.
  • 3 Use settings 3, 4 and 5 (low, medium high) for cooking. The setting you choose determines the length of time the food will cook. A typical meal with meat and vegetables needs 7 to 10 hours to cook at the low or #3 setting, 4 to 6 hours at the medium or #4 setting, and 2 to 3 hours at the high or #5 setting.

  • All West Bend slow cooker models eventually simmer at the boiling point, or 212 degrees. The setting simply determines how quickly the cooker will reach that temperature.


    300 watt is not a huge consumption of electricity, depending of course on, how often, how long and how high temperature.

    On the dial there is off, low, high and auto. What does the auto do? If I select auto is there a timer on it that shuts the pot down after a time? Is fo what is the time.


    There is no timer -- with the dial set to auto, a thermostat opens and closes turning the heating element(s) on and off to keep the pot at a fairly constant temperature. The high setting can continually boil the contents, and can burn the food if not stirred. The low setting is for keeping contents warm.

    I'd use "auto", if the pot is not going to be monitored.

    Not to sound like a knw it all, but we have a pot just like this. You have to boil the water in a seperate kettle and pour it in the pot. This is a drip pot, not a perculator. It will make the best coffe you've ever had.

    Strong plastic odor in West Bend coffeemaker


    oh yes. This must be a new machine. I would recommend pouring and draining boiling water in the maker several times. You can also use vinegar, but again it has to be rinsed and refilled and rinsed again with boiling hot water.

    Bunn Coffee machine only makes 1/2 pot


    What's happening is that it isn't leaking, it's boiling over. You need to turn down the thermostat under the top lid. Also, before you brew coffee, add water to the tank and let it pour into an empty pot. Once it stops brewing, let it heat up for a few minutes then make your pot of coffee.

    How does it make coffee?


    You fill it to the line indicating how many cups of coffee you want to make. Then you add coffee to the brew basket, at least 1 full heaping teaspoon per cup. Put the basket on top of the stem and place the stem into the coffee maker. Put the lid on and plug it in. That's it. Don't plug it in without the lid, it's a percolator. It will squirt the water out the top of the stem and it flows down through the coffee grounds.

    Barbara,
    Coffee grounds go in the top. (i use a filter paper also.) Install baffle with stem up. Assemble top to empty bottom section. pour boiling water into top. I use 4 cups water, 2 scoops chickory coffee. Let water trickle down into bottom. I put mine back through 3 times, black as tar. That is the advantage of this machine. I will never use another.........

    Warming plate boils coffee.


    Make sure you are using the type of commercial coffee pot like the one in the picture. They don't have to have to be plastic with the metal bottom, they can be all glass. The commercial pots are heavy duty and usually disperse the heat well.

    If you are using commercial pots the only solution without replacing the warmers is to put three pennies on the warmer and to put the pot on top of them. The pennies will get hot so don't forget and grab them but the pennies help to move the pot just a little way away from the direct heat.
