Video: How To EASILY Clean Your Stainless Coffee Pot

Oct 13

A video 4 years in the making here. Proof it’s never too late. Also proof that this cleaning tip has stood the test of time and works just as well years later!

4 years ago, I shared this blog post about how to clean a stainless coffee pot. This post has continued to be one of the most popular topics here on the site. Although my photography skills were lacking back then (ha!), didn’t matter. My friends online stumbled upon this post while searching for a solution to clean their own sad coffee pots.

Over the last few months the post has had a boost of attention. Possibly due in thanks to Pinterest. So I figured it was time to create that video I had planned all those years ago too!

If you have a stainless coffee pot, this is the only way to clean it easily and without scrubbing. Trust me, I’ve tried it all, even natural products like vinegar or baking soda. Instead I use a green, eco-friendly dish tab + boiling water to get this result. And it works like a charm every single time! You can see my cleaning tip in action right here in the video. Before & after included!

I’ve been working on my video editing skills and hope to share many more like this with you guys! Enjoy this one!

    Best method ever!

    Why doesn’t vinegar work? I am not a coffee drinker, my parents have always used distilled white vinegar (in that kind of pot). I have been told by coffee carafe distributers to use table salt and ice and shake it. I am not sure about that method- yours is great. Do you rinse the pot quite a few times, or does it rinse out once or twice, no problem?

      I’m not sure why but no method I have tried has worked other than the one I shared. I wish only vinegar worked. Yes, I do rinse the pot quite a bit after cleaning. But it’s super clean and coffee tastes great after it’s clean. So awesome! And less landfill waste!

    This method is amazing. I was really impressed .
    My propane camping stove left black marks on the outside of the pot.
    Is there any way I can clean up the outside now that I want to use it at home ?

      Hi Jan,

      This is a good question but I’m sorry I don’t have a solution to share with you. Have you tried searching google for ideas? For sure someone has come up with the answer!


I'd Love To Hear From You!
