    This is exactly why I want a white one. I keep mine clean. Wash or wipe down all parts right after brewing (including the “sprinkler head”) and dry the excess condensation.

    That’s called washing away all the flavor.

    Yah…coffee making is like sourdough bread or roux, you need a good starter. Pot likker, I believe it’s called.

    That’s why I bought a black one.

    That’s not dirt. Those are just mineral deposits.

    Making my Nuclear Coffee is hard on drip coffee makers, they usually burn out long before they have a chance to get truly nasty

    same thing with coffee mugs….they need a “patina” to be really broke in.

    Don’t look at the top of the refrigerator then.

    I’m constantly harangued by my wife because my coffee cup is disgusting! It has this beautiful chocolate brown patina along the inside getting darker towards the bottom of the cup. It takes at least three days to develop and nurture. Then my wife will scrub it out and the process begins again. The coating renders a somewhat robust flavor to the coffee.

    I think it’s “iron skillet” logic.

    Chester never washed the coffee pot in the Marshall’s office and when someone did, he went nuts claiming the coffee wouldn’t be as good until it got used a few hundred times again.

    Chlorox and hot water. Rinse. Problem solved.

    You “patina” types would love my daughter’s place. For example, the toaster ovens are rarely if ever cleaned. The last one caught on fire and burned up.

    Fires in the toasters are caused by the same neglience to clean as the fires in the exhaust hose of the clothes driers, due to lint buildup.
