Question about KitchenAid KCM511 Coffee Maker
Suggestion was Descaling the Coffee Maker from KitchenAid Phoebe (I'm guessing customer support)
Cleaning scale from coffee maker DO NOT USE THAT MUCH VINEGAR!Put a tiny bit of vinegar in the carafe and fill carafe the rest of theway with water. Run that vinegar/water through machine. Using anothercontainer, fill machine with plain water and run that through. Repeatuntil the vinegar taste is gone. If you do not run lots of plain waterthrough the machine after, your coffee will tastelike...um...disgusting!
To clean hard water deposits from acoffeemaker use distilled white vinegar. You may need to use as much asa gallon if the scale buildup is really bad. Fill clean coffee potone half full of vinegar and run through machine as if makingcoffee. Repeat this process several times using fresh vinegar until itcomes out clear. Do this once a week and your maker will work muchbetter.
