I love this coffee maker
Reviewed in the United States on January 15, 2021
I bought this coffee maker because I am often the ONLY person drinking coffee. However, sometimes I do have people over and I wanted the option to brew a full pot. I also liked that I could use my own coffee using a reusable filter because it feels environmentally irresponsible to me to use individual K-cups. The only down side is it does spatter a bit, but I can live with that.
I am only commenting here because I had a problem that I could only remedy by going to YouTube. I wanted to share it here. I went to make myself a cup of coffee and I forgot to put the filter on the single side. The results were a spattered mess of coffee grounds inside a coffee sludge cup. Not appetizing!
After cleaning up the mess, I saw a new light show up. It was red indicating that it needed to be cleaned. I looked carefully, cleaned some more, got out a paperclip, cleaned the piercing needle. Nothing worked. The manual doesn't mention this step so I will share it here.
Press the left and center button at the same time. That will put the single side into cleaning mode. Run the water through, perhaps vinegar and water a few times. Then rinse it out well. The red light goes away.
