Caring for a Glass Coffee Pot
Having a reliable coffee pot can help you start your morning off right! But if your glass coffee pot isn’t clean and in good condition, you won’t be able to enjoy your favourite coffee drinks. Follow these helpful steps below to ensure your pot is well maintained and ready for use:
Step 1: Inspect
It’s important to take a close look at your glass coffee pot for any chipping or cracking. Over time, ceramic and glass can start to weaken and become fragile. If your pot is chipped or cracked, it’s time to replace it and invest in a new one.
Step 2: Cleaning
Here’s what you’ll need to clean your pot:
- Warm water
- White vinegar
- Soft sponge or cloth
Fill the coffee pot 2/3 full with warm water and add a few tablespoons of white vinegar. Place the lid on the pot and allow the solution to sit for at least an hour. Once the hour is up, use a sponge or cloth to scrub the inside and outside of the pot. Rinse the pot with hot water until it’s thoroughly cleaned.
Step 3: Dry
It’s important to dry your pot before storing it. Make sure to thoroughly dry both the inside and outside of the pot. Use a soft cloth or paper towel and set it aside until it’s time for your next cup of coffee.
Step 4: Maintain
Regularly cleaning your glass coffee pot will reduce the chances of mineral deposits building up. If you do end up with some mineral build-up, just use a gentle grocery store cleaner or add more vinegar to your regular cleaning routine.
By following these steps, you should have a freshly cleaned glass coffee pot so you can enjoy your next morning cup of coffee!
