How often do you clean your Black and Decker dcm 2500 coffee maker?

I have yet to clean my coffee maker and need some tips on how to do it.

The best thing to do is to put clean water in it and run it through the system. You can also put a little bit of bleach in it and run it through one time and then you can continue to use just plain water about 5 or 6 more times after that.

To clean the mineral buildup from the water chamber, run 2 cups of vinegar through a regular brewing cycle (no coffee in the basket, of course). Let the machine sit for 15 minutes then repeat with fresh vinegar. Flush by running 2 cycles of plain water.

I would use white vinegar and run it through in the water area... this usual clean the appliance very well.

I clean mine every sunday morning I go to the store and buy the cleaner that you run through it and then I run like three pots of clear water through and it's ready to brew coffee for you again.

Get a french press! It's super easy to clean, doesn't need filters, and doesn't leave a filter taste in your coffee.
