Tip: Use Dip-It to Clean Stainless Coffee Pots

There is a product called Dip It - you just pour a package along with boiling water into the pot and all the YUK will float to the surface and inside is shiny steel! The Dip It powder works so much better than the cleaner they also offer - you can find it anywhere!

To clean inside of stainless steel coffee pot, take a hand held kitchen wand. Place a steel wool pad of your choice over the scrubbing pad attached to the wand.

I tried all of the posted suggestions to no avail. This morning I was cleaning my oven and thought "what the heck" ... I'll try oven spray on my coffee pot. Wonder of wonders, the pot cleaned up beautifully in less than 15 minutes.

RE: Cleaning a Stainless Steel Coffee Pot

I have a friend that uses Bon-Ami (the scouring powder) on all kind of things I thought would get scratched. It's non-abrasive so it preserves the item. That would probably get coffee stains out of SS. (12/25/2006)

RE: Cleaning a Stainless Steel Coffee Pot

The best way I have found to clean coffee pots, thermos bottles, etc. is to use denture tablets! Fill the pot or thermos bottle with warm water, drop in one or two denture tablets and let it sit for 10 or 15 minutes. Or, if its really stained, let it sit overnight. I have used this method for many years. Works terrific! (12/26/2006)

RE: Cleaning a Stainless Steel Coffee Pot

At work we have stainless steel coffee pots. When the pots get nasty, I put dish washing detergent (enough to cover the bottom) and the hotest water that I can get from the faucet. Let sit for quite a while. Then I stick a scrubby or dual sidded sponge in and move it around. They come out as good as new. (12/28/2006)

RE: Cleaning a Stainless Steel Coffee Pot

Go to the brush/broom section of a department store. Buy a good stiff bristled toilet brush with a head that will fit into your coffee pot.. Shake some non abrasive powder or vinegar into the bottom of your coffee pot, and scrub away with the brush. It cleans everything right up. Keep the toilet brush in a special spot, labled, so you can never mistaken it for the toilet LOL I use one in my dishwater for scrubbing pots and pans. Works like a charm, and you can use the hottest tap water without burning yourself. (12/29/2006)

RE: Cleaning a Stainless Steel Coffee Pot

When I was working in the restaurant we cleaned the pots with crushed ice and salt. The ice was the scrubber and the salt cleaned off the oils that stuck to the sides of the pot. Just put about a cup of crushed ice and a couple of teaspoons of salt in and swirl the pot around. Once a month we bleached the pots. Your home coffee pot probably wouldn't need bleach every month.

RE: Cleaning a Stainless Steel Coffee Pot

If you mean a percolator, I use 1/8 cup of Oxiclean and a full pot of water. After perking, run two more pots of plain water through. It sparkles on the inside and all of the build up is gone. (06/15/2007)
