Here is a detailed guide on how to use the Ninja Dual Brew Coffee Maker:
Step 1: Preparation
- Remove any packaging materials and wash the carafe, brew basket, and reusable filter with warm, soapy water. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.
- Place the carafe on the base, making sure it is properly aligned.
- Fill the water tank with cold water to the desired level. The water tank is located at the back of the coffee maker and has markings for 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 cups.
- Place a paper filter or the reusable filter in the brew basket, depending on your preference.
Step 2: Grind and measure the coffee beans
- If you prefer freshly ground coffee, measure out the desired amount of beans and grind them to a medium-fine consistency.
- If you are using pre-ground coffee, skip this step.
Step 3: Add the coffee to the brew basket
- Pour the ground coffee into the brew basket or spoon pre-ground coffee into the filter.
- Use the scoop that came with the coffee maker to measure out the coffee. The scoop holds approximately 2 tablespoons of coffee, so use as many scoops as needed based on the number of cups you are making.
- Gently tap the sides of the brew basket to level out the coffee and ensure it is evenly distributed.
Step 4: Select the brew size and strength
- Use the brew size buttons on the control panel to select the desired number of cups. The options are 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 cups.
- Use the brew strength buttons to select the desired strength. The options are regular and bold.
Step 5: Start the brewing process
- Press the power button to turn on the coffee maker.
- Press the start button to begin the brewing process. The coffee maker will begin to heat up and the water will be pulled from the water tank into the heating element.
- Once the water is heated to the proper temperature, it will be pumped through the coffee grounds and into the carafe.
- The coffee maker will automatically shut off when the brewing process is complete.
Step 6: Pour and serve the coffee
- Carefully pour the brewed coffee into your favorite mug or cup.
- If you are using the reusable filter, remove it from the brew basket and discard the used coffee grounds. If you are using a paper filter, discard the filter and grounds.
- If you are making a large batch of coffee, you can keep the carafe on the warming plate to keep the coffee hot.
Step 7: Cleaning and maintenance
- After each use, rinse the brew basket, carafe, and reusable filter with warm, soapy water and rinse thoroughly.
- Once a week, you should also clean the water tank and heating element by filling the tank with a mixture of half water and half vinegar. Run a brew cycle with this mixture, then run two more cycles with just water to rinse.
- Do not use abrasive cleaners or scrubbers on any parts of the coffee maker.
