You can in the top shelf, but a simple rinse is sufficient because the plunger wipes the chamber. If your chamber ever gets sticky, wash it with vinegar. We recommend occasionally removing the seal from the end of the plunger for a good washing inside and out with warm water and dish soap.
Storage and Care:
To maximize seal life, always eject the used coffee right after brewing and store your AeroPress coffee maker with the seal pushed all the way through the chamber. This keeps the seal free of compression for longer seal life. There is no adhesive on the seal, so you can easily remove it and then replace it on the AeroPress plunger. You can purchase replacement seals from our website here: https://aeropress.com/products/aeropress-seal.
For day to day use, a simple rinse is sufficient because the plunger wipes the chamber clean as you brew. However, you can wash AeroPress coffee makers in the dishwasher (top rack only). We recommend occasionally removing the seal from the end of the plunger for a good washing inside and out with warm water and dish soap. If your chamber ever gets sticky, wash it with vinegar.
- cold brew
I really am enjoying my AeroPress and the delicous coffee it produces. So smooth!! The one thing I'm struggling with and I'm playing with it, is getting the correct amount of coffee to use. It's almost too smooth that I don't have enough 'bite' — so I'm playing around with different brands and amounts to use.
Thank you for your review - we are so glad you are enjoying your AeroPress coffee maker! For more "bite", you could try using a hotter water temperature, or extending the "wet time" (time during which the coffee grounds are steeping in the water). We hope that this helps - happy brewing! Best wishes, Constance, AeroPress, Inc.
It is the best cup of coffee I've ever made!
I read several long articles about making a great cup of coffee without having to buy an expensive coffee maker. The AeroPress came up not only as a good cup of coffee but a great cup of coffee. One article said it is a 10/10! High praise I thought! Then I wondered it must be super expensive and difficult to operate. Neither was (or is!) true. I recommend you buy one and see if you agree!
Great, but difficult to use at higher altitudes
Bought this as something light I could bring along when I travel. I live in Denver, so I have challenges getting a consistent cup at home. These problems get harder when I travel to higher elevations, but when I travel to sea level, the aeropress is a delight to use. To anyone else struggling at higher elevation, you may need to grind your beans finer, brew for longer, or agitate the coffee more while it's brewing (pick the mug and aeropress up together and give them a light swirl). Also consider waiting longer before you press the plunger down. These all have helped me start dialing in the process. Good luck!
Now my go-to coffee maker
I’ve been drinking coffee for 60 of my 77 years. These days it’s 2 mugs of Kicking Horse decaf—strong and black—every morning. Aeropress delivers the very best coffee of any maker I’ve used. Strong and grounds-free—but never bitter. And fast!! I also use it for dinner guests, using 30g of coffee and diluting it to 2 cups. I can make 4-6 cups faster than a drip maker can. It’s the best!
Great gift for dad
I gifted this to my dad as he has been wanting it for awhile he absolutely loves it!!
