Do you have to purchase an additional filter the little filter not for the coffee itself?

Do you clean the little filter just the same as the big filter or do you have to purchase additional filters for the water purifier?

After the first month, just throw the little filter ball away, but put the empty holder back into the machine. No need to buy more of those tiny "chlorine" filters ... just use bottled water!

some people choose to use paper filters but you do not need them. you just dump the grinds out and rinse off the filter and you are good to go. 1x a month i use a little vinegar and water to pass through it . you do have to purchase additional water filters. but you do not have to have the filter in there if you dont want to. it just makes the coffee taste better imo.

Question

Did anyone have trouble with the lid staying closed?

Just purchased this coffee maker and upon setting it up, noticed that when the carafe is in place the lid pops up. It doesn't latch. take out the pot it drops down. Taking it back and checking another just in case I got a fluke, but just wondered if anyone else had the issue. The lid just lies down level but doesn't latch which would be fine but it sticks up about 1/4 inch with the pot in.
thanks.

Sort of. That happened a couple times before I noticed that you have to have the filter in precisely the right position or the lid doesn't close. Make sure the tab on the filter is aligned with the matching notch.

In the USA a cup = 8 ounces, and that does not vary unless you go to the UK where they may use the metric system.

In the USA that would officially be 8 ounces. I use two level tablespoons of coffee for a 17 ounce bottle of water and pour the first 16 ounces into my mug (to avoid the grounds) ... gives me a perfect BIG cup of coffee!

My experience is that coffee pot "cups" are considered 5 oz...seems to be fairly standard at all levels.
Just consider this a 24 oz coffee pot.

I'm here to save the day! The GE filters fit perfectly in the Farberware Coffee Maker and are sold in a 2-pk at WalMart for a reasonable amount. You can also find them online (a bit over-priced), but be very careful as they come in a blister-pack and may arrive crushed, covered with a black dust. This is charcoal, in which case - DO NOT USE !! Certainly hope this makes your morning coffee break more pleasant. :)

You are most likely out of luck on this issue. I wouldn't spend time looking anymore. You don't need them if you have decent water. If not, buy purified water at the grocery store.
