• Clean the inside of the kettle with dishwasher detergent and rinse
thoroughly with water.
• Do not use an abrasive sponge.
• After cleaning dry the kettle and the base thoroughly.
Warning: never immerse the kettle or the base in water or other liquids.
DECALCIFYING
When mineral scale builds up in your kettle, it can effect tempertaure
consistency and slow down the boiling time. To ensure optimum
performance- Gourmia recommends descaling the kettle when there is
visible mineral build up inside the kettle.
Note: Vinegar may not effectively descale the kettle and can be difficult to rinse
thoroughly. Vinegar also leaves behind an odor that could affect future uses.
Clean and dry all parts before storing. Store the kettle in its box or in
a clean, dry place. Never wrap the
power cord around the kettle.
