Try adding a tablespoon of table salt and a half cup of hot water. This will create a course sludge that will (with a little elbow grease) power through the burnt carafe. If this fails, run some vinegar through your coffeemaker - a good preventative maintenance task for any coffeemaker - and let the carafe soak for a bit with the cycled vinegar. The acid should help break up the burn. Try adding a dryer sheet to some warm water and let sit over night.

What is a thermal coffee maker?

The main difference between thermal coffee makers and standard coffee makers is that thermal coffee makers brew directly into an insulated carafe (instead of a glass carafe). These insulated carafes are designed to maintain hotter temperatures after coffee is brewed, and therefore they eliminate the need for a warming plate. Many recommend thermal coffee makers in general over their standard counterparts, noting that the glass carafe and hot plate combination on most standard machines tends to quickly turn fresh-brewed coffee acidic, while thermal carafes maintain temperatures without producing an acidic flavor. Thermal coffee makers tend to be more expensive than their standard counterparts, though if you break a glass carafe and purchase a replacement more than once, you'll probably have paid the difference between the two types of machines

How to Clean a 12 Cup Coffee Maker?

Except for the connoisseur of coffee who may use an old percolating coffee pot or a modern coffee press, the standard coffee pot at home is the 12 cup coffee maker. Most are used throughout the day serving coffee for breakfast lunch and dinner times. They get dirty fast. Many will just wipe the pot down and throw the carafe in the dishwasher leaving the stains that making coffee invariably produces behind. There is no need to go out and replace a perfectly functional coffee maker when a bit of creative cleaning can get an old one looking new again. Household bleach can be diluted according to manufacturer’s directions on the label for use in cleaning dishes. It is then safe to clean the exterior surfaces of the coffee maker as well as the carafe, carafe lid and the basket that hold the ground coffee. Soaking a stained carafe, carafe lid, and basket for about 15 minutes in a sink filled with this diluted bleach solution will remove many stubborn stains with no scrubbing. It is a good idea to not use any abrasive materials on the carafe anyway, because small scratches can weaken the glass. Wear gloves and use a strong brand of paper towel to wipe away the coffee stains on the surfaces of the immersed items a little at a time. As the bleach works on the surface of a stain, a little rub with the paper towel will remove stains layer by layer. Rinse thoroughly. For the actual coffee maker be sure to never immerse it in water. Use a solution of 50% white vinegar to 50% cold water in the water reservoir to clean it out. Run the vinegar solution through the pot as if making a pot of coffee. This will clean out the internal parts safely. It may be needed to run two full pots of clean rinse water through the coffee maker to remove all traces of the vinegar. Be sure to use a filter each time to catch scale build up from hot water that will be knocked loose by the vinegar. Do not clean any internal surfaces with bleach. Do not let the bleach come in contact with the vinegar solution. Wiping external surfaces with the bleach solution will remove stains by both the mechanical act of wiping and the stain whitening ability of the bleach. With 15 minutes of soaking parts and about five minutes of actual work, a 12 cup coffee maker can be made to look brand new.
