How to Clean a Cuisinart Glass Coffee Carafe

The Cuisinart Glass Coffee Carafe allows you to make a hot coffee cup quickly and conveniently. However, after regular use it can become full of stains and coffee grounds, which can affect the flavor of coffee you brew in it. Here’s how to effectively clean a Cuisinart Glass Coffee Carafe:

Basic Cleaning

  • Unplug the Cuisinart Coffee Maker before cleaning.
  • Mix equal parts vinegar and warm water in a container.
  • Dip a sponge into the vinegar and water solution, and scrub the entire inside of the carafe.
  • Rinse the carafe with clean water and let dry.

More Thorough Cleaning

  • Pour two tablespoons of baking soda inside the carafe.
  • Fill the carafe with warm water.
  • Let the solution sit for an hour.
  • Swirl the solution around while scrubbing the sides of the carafe with a sponge.
  • Rinse the carafe thoroughly with warm water.


If you notice the carafe is full of white chalk-like deposits, descaling the carafe will help remove them. Here’s what to do:

  • Fill the carafe with a 50/50 mixture of white vinegar and water.
  • Let the solution sit in the carafe for two hours.
  • After two hours, pour out the solution and rinse the carafe several times with warm water.


  • Do not use any abrasive scrubbing pads or any type of harsh chemical cleaners.
  • Do not put the carafe in the dishwasher.
  • Do not use boiling water to clean the carafe as this may weaken the structure of the glass.

By following these simple steps, you can keep your Cuisinart Glass Coffee Carafe looking and performing like new.
