Cold Brew Cleaning and Care

Cleaning and Care of KitchenAid Coffee Maker

IMPORTANT: It is critical to thoroughly clean the Cold Brew Coffee Maker after each use. To avoid damage, do not wash in the dishwasher. The taste of your coffee can be impacted if the brew jar and steeper assembly are not thoroughly cleaned of all grounds, coffee oil residue, or soap after each use.

  1. Clean all parts of the Cold Brew Coffee Maker by hand only. Rinse coffee residue from each part. Wash with warm, soapy water, then open the tap and run warm water through until the tube and tap are empty. Dry each part with a dry, soft towel.
