It is important that you take good care of your machine to ensure that they will serve you well. I personally have a Cuisinart Grind & Brew Coffee Maker which I have use for years without problem. This is because I take good care of it. I am going to share with you some good tips on how to prolong the life of your machine by proper maintenance.
I have notice that Cuisinart coffee maker parts need proper care to ensure their lifetime. This is because they are top notch machine which perform better compare to other brands and its parts are more flimsy. It is very important that you take care of them.
Many people do not know that location is important, this means that you must find a strategic place to put your Cuisinart coffee maker. This machine like said are build with high technology and have many electronically parts that are quite sensitive in nature. Always make sure that you find a place not to near to high temperature like near stoves or oven or even places near the back of radiators or refrigerators. The consequence of that is you may encounter more breakdowns if you place them at extreme temperature places. Do take note of this simple tip might lead you to lower costs of maintaining your coffee machine.
The best place I would suggest putting your Cuisinart coffee maker at your kitchen counter top. They are not very bulky in nature and also stylish in a way so just place them at your kitchen countertop.
Personally mine does not have any problems and I have not replaced any parts for years.
The next important tip is cleaning your Cuisinart coffee maker. For me personally, I clean my machine every time after use. Yes I know it is hard for most people but I advise that if you want them to perform longer, you need to do this. The reason is that the residual oil of the coffee beans would turn into rancid and if you do not rinse them off it will eat your parts up. So the best way is to clean them after use. If you really do not have the time, at least make an effort to rinse them off especially the carafe.
Cleaning your Cuisinart coffee maker is very important like I say earlier. It is a very good way to pro long their lifespan and you would have ensured that it will brew you the best coffee every day. If you really do not have the time you should at least wash them twice a week if you are a daily brewer.
My last tip on ways to pro long your Cuisinart coffee maker is you need to gauge how frequently you brew coffee. If you are those people that brew 2 to 3 times a day half capacity, this may wear off your machine in the long run. Try to cut it down by brewing a full pot once daily. This is because when you are brewing at half pot capacity, you are stressing your machine in a way. Try to purchase a coffee machine that caters to your capacity needs. If there is not so many people that drinks coffee, do not buy a 12 cup brewing machines. Try to look at your needs before buying.
Simple rite, these 3 steps if you follow them, I could guarantee you that your Cuisinart coffee maker will serve you long and well trouble free.
