Unplug the appliance before cleaning it.
–	Clean all parts that came into contact
with coffee after each use.
–	Clean the coffee machine’s exterior
with a damp cloth; do not use strong or

–	Wipe out the water tank 1; do not use a
hard brush.
–	All detachable parts are dishwasher-safe.

coffee machine.
