  1. WARNING: Keep all plastic bags away from children.
  2. CAUTION: Keurig® recommends using only Keurig® My K-Cup® Reusable Coffee Filter and Keurig® approved K-Cup® pods in this appliance. If the pod does not fit, do not force the pod into the appliance. The use of non-Keurig® pods or accessories may cause brewer malfunction or injury.
  3. WARNING: Used K-Cup® pods should be removed from the pod holder, or in part with the daily cleaning routine.
  4. WARNING: There is extremely hot water under pressure in the K-Cup® pod holder during the brew process. To avoid risk of injury do not lift the handle or otherwise open the handle during the brew process.
  5. CAUTION: There are sharp needles that puncture the K-Cup pod; one above the K-Cup® pod holder, and the other in the bottom of the K-Cup pod holder. To avoid risk of injury, be aware of the needle locations.
    a. A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
    b. Longer detachable power-supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
    c. If a long detachable power-supply cord or extension cord is used:
    I. The marked electrical rating of the detachable power-supply cord or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance.
    II. If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounding type 3-wire cord.
    III. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or table top where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.
  7. CAUTION: HOT COCOA/OTHER NONCOFFEE PODS: Immediately after using a hot cocoa/other non-coffee pod, run a hot water brew cycle without a pod to avoid the possibility of clogging the exit needle. DO NOT assume the next user will do this.
