Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker
It depends on the hardness of the water used in the brewer. Personally reverse osmosis water is the only good water to use in a brewer. If your brewer is a dcc-1200 the water that you pour in is used at the time of brewing and isn't stored and heated, waiting to be used like restaurant brewers. Vinegar is ok if you flush a couple of pots after you are done cleaning. It is more to get the residual taste of vinegar out of the first new brewed pot of coffee. If you have more than 10 grains of hardness you may consider frequent vinegar usage or a specialized acid for tank and element cleanup. Just be sure that when you are done that you have sufficiently flushed the brewer. On a 1200 series it will probably only take two or three pots of water to flush any residual taste or smell out of the brewer. Donot try this with a holding tank brewer like a Bunnomatic unless you have test strips or flush with water about thirty times. I did a test on a Bunn with test strips and it took about thirty pots to return the water to a normal level on an acid alkali test strip. A good heavy duty product is called limeaway. Just follow directions and flush completely. I am sending a pic of a brewer with a holding tank. If you look down inside you will see slabs of pure lime scale. Vinegar won't touch this. We use hydrochloric acid and a hammer to remove this. Have fun, Rick in Indy. 23 to 50 grains per gallon here.
