Your Ninja Coffee Bar is designed to cut the trips to local coffee shops short, and anyone who dares to claim otherwise doesn’t know how to use or maintain the coffee maker properly. But, luckily for you, we’ve got all the answers.
Check out our tips and advice, and you will be churning out your specialty coffee right on your counter for many years to come.
If you want a coffee maker that screams functionality in the most elegant way, then nothing beats the Ninja Coffee Bar. Fancy to look at with the ability to make many different brews, the machine really lives up to its name.
Its ability to make cold and hot brews in various types and sizes may trick you into thinking that the Ninja bar is complicated to operate, but the truth is quite different. Using the Ninja Coffee Bar cannot be simpler.
With a one-touch panel and a convenient brewing system that allows you to choose the proper water amount needed, it is recommended that you keep the tank full at all times. Trust me; you will need it. And with the tank being transparent, refilling cannot be more convenient.
Plus, the brew basket slides out perfectly, and thanks to the measuring scoop, refilling is a breeze.
Besides looking elegant on your counter and being simple to operate, your Ninja Coffee Bar offers a lot more:
Regular cleaning is crucial if you want your beloved maker to be functioning correctly for years to come. But you cannot help but wonder – how often should you actually clean your Ninja Bar?
Besides day-to-day maintenance, your Ninja maker craves an occasional deep clean. Descaling is needed because calcium and other minerals tend to build up over time, altering the taste of your brew and shortening the lifespan of the machine.
But don’t worry. There is no guesswork involved. Your Ninja bar will give you a prompt when the cleaning time rolls over. When you see the “Clean” button lightening up, you will know the time for a scrub-a-dub has come.
To maintain your coffee maker, you need more than the occasional deep clean. You need to make sure that your Ninja Bar is always in its pristine condition. And to do so, the maker should be always clean, dry, and placed someplace safe.
The ideal maintenance method would be to clean with warm and soapy water after every use, but let’s not kid ourselves – who does that? The other, near-best solution is, to at least, rinse and wipe after every brew, to minimize the calcium buildup and leftover gunk.
Regardless of its fantastic functionality, your Ninja Coffee Bar is just a coffee maker. And just like with all appliances, you cannot escape troubleshooting. Here are the most common fixes for your Ninja Bar:
You Hear Beeping – If you do not push the basket all the way in, your Ninja Bar will make a beeping noise to tell you something’s wrong.
You Cannot Set the Delay Brew – Before you start yelling at your machine, check the drip stop. The brew basket should be pushed all the way through as well.
There are Sediments at the Bottom of Your Cup – Yup! That’s what happens when you use a permanent filter. Personally, I love that raw cuppa. But if that’s not your ideal brew, you can just switch to paper filters and problem solved.
Your Ninja Bar is Leaking – You may have poured too much water or improperly tucked in the reservoir. Check the brew basket and water tank and make sure that they are attached properly.
If for some reason, you cannot fix a problem with your Ninja Bar, it is wise to reset it. Turn the appliance off and reset the power from your wall socket. Make sure that all of its parts are attached correctly and that you have enough water in the tank before turning it back on.
If you still cannot solve the problem, read the instruction manual carefully or contact Ninja for help.
Depending on what you wish to achieve – whether descaling or regular cleaning – there are two different methods for cleaning your Ninja Bar.
If you wish to clean your Ninja thoroughly and get rid of mineral buildup, then you should use diluted vinegar for that purpose. If you’ve recently descaled and you just need to make it spick and span, then you don’t need more than just some soap and warm water.
Cleaning the outside of your Ninja Coffee Bar is pretty straightforward:
Now, cleaning the inside of the Ninja maker requires a different approach, mostly because you cannot see the nastiness that is piled up inside. And the best ingredient to purge the gunk out? Vinegar, of course!
Regular cleaning and descaling on time will make sure that your Ninja Bar stays a real ninja for years to come. If you want your cup of Joe to have a fresh and flavorful taste with every brew, then you need to ensure an even flow and clean parts.
As you can see, cleaning the Ninja Bar doesn’t require that much effort. But to make things even easier for you, Ninja has made the carafe, water tank, coffee filter, and the lid dishwasher-safe, so if you don’t like scrubbing with soapy sponges every day, just pop them in the dishwasher, and that’s it.
Just remember, clean regularly, and look out for the cleaning indicator light to descale on time.
Once the counter gets beautified with this fancy-looking appliance, every coffee enthusiast becomes addicted to their Ninja Coffee Bar.
If you are one of those Ninja junkies as well, then we sincerely hope this article was able to clear your confusion regarding the coffee maker and help you understand that maintaining the Ninja Bar is as simple as it is using it.
