Read all Important Safeguards and Operating Instructions before using this kettle.
Discard the first filling of boiling water to remove any dust and residues from the
manufacturing process.
1. Remove kettle from base.
2. Push the button on the handle and the lid opens itself. DO NOT bend lid
past its opening point or try to remove!
3. Fill with the desired amount of fresh cold water. The kettle has minimum and
maximum markings. Never under fill or overfill the kettle.
CAUTION / DANGEROUS: Never fill above the MAX line. If you fill above
the max line, boiling water will push out of the pouring spout. This can
cause severe injuries and burns.
4. Close lid and ensure it is locked into place.
NOTE: If kettle is hot, use plastic oval on lid for fingers so they do not get
burned while closing the lid.
5. Place kettle on Power Base.
6. Plug cord into outlet.
7. Gently push the On/Off switch downwards into the ON position. The blue
indicator light will turn on and the kettle begins to heat water. The warmer
the water becomes the more you will hear the noise of the water heating up.
8. When the water comes to a boil the kettle will turn off automatically, the ON
switch will jump up and the indicator light will shut off.
9. Lift kettle from base and pour water out slowly.
10. Replace kettle back onto base.
Turning the Kettle Off
There are two ways to turn off the kettle:
1. During operation, push the On/Off button upwards to the OFF position.
2. During operation, lift the kettle off the base. This will turn off the kettle. If you
remove the kettle during heating – before Auto Shut-Off – the blue indicator
light will turn off but the switch will stay in the ON position. If you place the
kettle back on the power base, the light will turn on again, indicating that
heating continues. You can always push the switch upward to the complete
OFF position.
Helpful Hints:
• Never try to boil water with the lid open.
• Do not leave water standing in the kettle. Discard unused water.
• If the kettle is "ON" without water, the kettle will automatically turn off (the
blue indicator light will turn off, but the switch will NOT jump back). Push the
control upward to the complete OFF position.
Dry Boil Shut-Off Protection
If you turn the kettle on without water in the kettle, the heater will shut off after
a few seconds. Allow the kettle to cool down before filling with water. The
thermostat will reset after a few minutes and you can place the kettle filled
with water back on the base to begin heating.
• Always unplug cord of power base before cleaning.
• Make sure kettle is cold.
• Removable scale filter located in the spout can be pulled up and out for
cleaning. Run the filter under hot water and rub with a cleaning cloth or brush.
• Clean the exterior surface with a clean, damp, soft cloth.
• Never use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, chemical cleaners or scouring
agents to clean the kettle.
• Rinse out kettle and wipe dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
• Over time the stainless steel inside of the kettle may change color slightly.
This is caused by the intense heat of the heating element, especially if the
kettle was turned on repeatedly without water. This will not diminish the
performance of the kettle in any way.
• If your water has a high calcium content, calcium deposits might dull the
inside. Follow the instruction below for decalcification.
Hard water can leave calcium spots inside the kettle that can slow down boiling
time. Use a commercial descaling agent, like Capresso Cleaning Solution and
follow the instructions that come with the agent.
NOTE: Make sure kettle is cold.
Use of Capresso Cleaning Solution
Dissolve 1 oz (28 g) of Capresso Cleaning Solution with 32 oz (1 L) of water and pour
mixture into kettle. Allow mixture to sit inside the kettle for 20-30 minutes. Pour
water and Cleaning Solution out and rinse the kettle 2-3 times with fresh, clean
water. DO NOT heat the kettle while descaling with Capresso Cleaning Solution.
Use of Vinegar
You can also use white vinegar to descale the inside. Fill the kettle with 2 cups of
water (16 oz) and add 6 tablespoons of white vinegar. Bring to a boil. Discard the
solution and repeat if necessary. Rinse the kettle once or twice with fresh cold
