INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing our product.
In doing so, you have opted for an effective highperformance appliance.
If the instructions on the correct use of this appliance
are not observed, the manufacturer shall assume no
responsibility for any resulting damage.
The operating instructions may refer to different
models: any difference is clearly identified.
BOIL-DRY PROTECTION
Should you accidentally let the kettle operate without
water, the boil-dry protection will automatically switch off
the display. This is a normal protection device and the
display will switch on in few minutes. If this occurs, allow
the kettle to cool down before filling with cold water.
BEFORE FIRST USE
Carefully wipe the outside of the appliance to remove
any dust that may have accumulated. Dry with a dry
cloth. Do not immerse the supply cord in water or other
liquids. If you are using the kettle for the first time, it is
recommended that you clean it before use by boiling a
full kettle of water twice and discarding the water.
OPERATION OF YOUR KETTLE
Use the kettle only with its included base.
1. To fill the kettle, remove it from the power base and
open the lid by pressing the lid opening button, fill
with the desired amount of water, and then close
the lid. Alternatively, the kettle may be filled through
8
the spout. The water level should not exceed the
maximum level or sit below the min level. Too little
water will cause the kettle to switch off before the
water has boiled.
The maximum capacity of the kettle is 1.7L. Do
not add water over the maximum level, as it
may spill out of the spout when boiling. Ensure that
the lid is firmly in place before connecting the plug
into a power outlet.

temperature to 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 or 100P.
in 100P mode, the kettle keeps on boiling the
water for 10 minutes, then stops. Use this function
to delete chlorine odor or sterilize water. The display will
always show the temperature of the water inside the jug.
5. Press START/STOP button.
6. When the water has reached the selected
temperature, the kettle ring and automatically
switch to keep-warm mode for 1 hour. To cancel this
mode press the START/STOP button.

100°C.
After finish keeping warm, the LCD display will
indicate the actual water temperature and the
kettle will shut off automatically and enter into energysaving mode after being in stand-by mode for 5 minutes
when the actual water temperature decreases to less
than 45°C.
7. If the temperature cannot be set, this means that
the water in the kettle is hotter than the desired
temperature. You can turn off the kettle at any time
by pressing the cancel button.
The selected temperature can be changed at
any time while the kettle is heating up. While
the kettle is heating up, the current temperature
lights up.
Be careful when pouring the water from your
kettle as boiling water may cause scalds.
Open the lid carefully while the water in the kettle is
hot.
Below 45° C, the kettle automatically shuts
down and goes into “standby” mode.
If the container is removed and re-introduced before
the heating process is over, the settings stay active
for a few minutes.
en
Ensure the switch is free of obstructions
and the lid is firmly closed: the kettle could
not properly turn off if the switch is constrained or
if the lid is open.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Always disconnect the appliance from the power outlet
before cleaning.
1. Wipe the outside of the body with a damp cloth or
cleaner. Never use a toxic cleaner.
2. Remember to clean the filter on a regular basis.
For easier cleaning, detach the filter by by pulling it
upwards (see pic. 1). Then replace it after cleaning.
Do not use chemical, steel, wooden or
abrasive cleaners or brushes to clean the
outside of the kettle to prevent any gloss loss.
REMOVAL OF MINERAL
DEPOSITS
Your kettle should be periodically descaled, as the mineral
deposits in tap water may form scale on the bottom
of the kettle and cause a less efficient operation. You
can use any commercially available descaler. Hotpoint
recommends WPro Descaler. Follow the instructions on
the package of the descaler. Alternatively, you may follow
the instructions below and use white vinegar.
1. Fill the appliance 3/4 full, boil, then unplug the
appliance (remove the cordless kettle from the
base unit) and stand it in an empty sink or bowl.
Gradually add 50ml of white vinegar to the water.
Leave the solution in the kettle overnight.
2. Discard the mixture in the kettle, fill the kettle with
clean water, boil and then discard the water. Repeat
several times until the smell of vinegar has been
flushed away. Any stains remaining inside the spout
can be removed by rubbing it with a damp cloth.
