Coffemaker odor - options?
March 4, 2004 7:38 PM Subscribe
I have a fairly new, but well used, coffeemaker that uses a thermal carafe and cone-shaped plastic filter holder. The carafe also has a plastic valve/lid, and the most relevant parts of the machine, where the coffee is poured through, are all plastic. This plastic, unlike stainless steel, absorbs the odor and color of coffee and I can't seem to get rid of it. The reason it's a problem is that the coffee that now pours through has a hint of this odor with every cup, and I have a sensitive palette. What are my options?
