We loved how there were instructions with images as soon as you opened the box and not a booklet full of all text. Be sure to read Part 1 of our review also.
The Machine includes a Handy Drink Guide which is worth getting laminated to keep somewhere safe. It has step-by step-directions, your machine registration code information, and the many flavors available for your ideal cup.
We were so impressed to see how well the machine was packed. It was very simple to unbox and very quick to assemble. There are 6 steps to follow before making your first delicious beverage! Be sure to check out the video below this post to see us making our first cup and subscribe to our Youtube channel!
Step #1: Remove the water tank and fill with water and replace into the Machine. We avoid using regular tap water because of the hardness. Hard water comes from high amounts of minerals, like chloride, sulfate, and calcium. So using this type of water in your machine you are reducing its life by the build of of scale and lime. Also, it will reduce the taste of your beverage where as using filtered water will only improve the flavor.
Step #3: Attach the Drip Tray to support the mug or glass. The tray is adjustable to height. We used a mason jar for this step.
Step #4: Press the power button once. Wait for light to turn green.
Step #6: Rinse your Machine. You will hear a loud sound when you do this step that is normal.
A. To do this, first press the Cold water button. Wait until the green lit bars decrease or disappear and for the machine to stop. Remove the jar of water and pour out. Replace jar.
B. Repeat Process using the Hot water button.
Do this a few times for a thorough rinse/cleaning for your machine.
