Clean a Stovetop Coffee Maker

Cleaning a stovetop coffee maker requires little effort. There is a misconception that they will not need to be cleaned because they are stainless steel or aluminum pots. However, the coffee pots will corrode eventually if not cleaned regularly due to the coffee oils and particulates that are left in the coffee maker. These particles will oxidize and burn in the metal if not removed. Allowing water to sit will degrade the unit as well.

Time estimate for cleaning: 10 minutes

Time estimate for stain removal: 1-2 hours
