answer 1
I clean the glass carafe with soap and hot water daily, and daily I rinse the stainless steele coffee filter and let it air dry on a paper towel...but why would we need to clean the coffee maker housing with soap and water or vinegar? The only thing put inside the housing is clean (filtered) water it doesn't get dirty.

My previous answer referred to cleaning the machine. To clean just the "pot," best bet is top shelf of your dishwasher ... take off the top first and toss it in there, then put in the pot upside down.

I have owned several of the GE makers similar to this one. Since Walmart changed from GE to Farberware they have quit selling the filters. I have looked on line with no luck. I guess when the filter stops working, take it back and exchange it for a new coffee maker. The instructions recommend changing the water filter every 30 days.

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.

When you clean the coffee pot after each use, do you have to take the charcoal filter out each time to dry out?

I do wash the glass carafe after each use, and I remove the coffee filter rinse it and let it dry out on a paper towel daily. But I have had my Farberware Coffee Maker for a year and I have never cleaned the housing. Why would I need to celan the housing after each use? It doesn't get dirty, the only thing inside the housing is clean filtered water. And yes, remove the charcoal (chlorine) filter before washing the housing (just set it on a paper towel).
