White Stains
by: PurelyCoffeeBeans

I don't think you will be able to remove those 'white stains' with anything. I think this means that the non-stick coating has already come off, and the underlying metal surface has been exposed.

Vigorous scrubbing will only remove the remaining coating FAST! Be careful you don't burn your coffee pot by leaving it standing on the pot.

Without a non-stick surface, you may find that the coffee pot burns easily, and may seem to 'stick' to the electric plate a little.

Don't ever force the jug off... otherwise you may find that you end up pouring a jug of hot coffee and broken glass all over yourself.

Hope that helps. It may be time to look at a new machine.

My coffee maker has white stains on heating plate

I tried cleanser and steel wool to clean the plate.

Coffee is fine. Should I just forget about it?
