IMPORTANT INFORMATION
ON SAFETY
When using any electrical appliance, always
follow basic safety precautions, including the
following:
1. Connect and operate the appliance only in
accordance with the specifications on the
rating plate.
2. Read all the instructions before using the
appliance.
3. Do not let the cord hang over the edge of
a table / counter or touch any hot surfaces.
4. Do not place the appliance on or near a hot
gas / electric burner or in a heated oven.
5. Do not operate the appliance without
anything in it to avoid damaging the heating
elements.
6. Ensure that the kettle is used on a firm flat
surface out of the reach of children. This
will prevent the kettle from overturning and
causing damage or injury.
7. As a protection against fire, electric shocks
or personal injury, do not immerse the cord,
electric plugs or kettle in water or other
liquids.
8. While the water is boiling or just after the
water has boiled, avoid any contact with the
steam.
9. Always take care to pour boiling water slowly
and carefully without tipping the kettle too
fast.
10. Be careful when refilling a hot kettle.
11. The attached base cannot be used for any
other purpose than its intended use.
12. Extreme caution must be used when moving
an appliance containing hot water.
13. The use of accessory attachments that
are not recommended by the appliance
manufacturer, may result in fire, electric
shocks or personal injury.
14. Unplug the kettle from the outlet when not in
use and before cleaning. Allow the kettle to
cool down before installing / removing any
parts and before cleaning it.
15. If the supply cord is damaged, have it
replaced by the manufacturer or its service
agent or a similarly qualified person in order
to avoid hazards.

16. This appliance has a built-in grounded plug.
Make sure the wall outlet in your house is
properly earthed.
17. Do not use the appliance for any other
purpose than its intended use.
18. This appliance is not intended for use by
persons (including children) with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or
lack of experience and knowledge, unless
they have been provided supervision or
instructions on the use of the appliance by a
person responsible for their safety.
19. Children should be supervised to ensure that
they do not play with the appliance.
20. This appliance is intended to be used for
household and similar applications such as:
• staff kitchen areas in shops, offices and
other working environments;
• farm houses;
• by clients in hotels, motels and other
residential-type environments;
• bed&breakfast-type environments.
21. Always make sure that the appliance is in
good working order and that all its removable
parts are secure. Regularly check the power
supply cord and plug for cuts or damage.
22. Be sure your hands are completely dry
before touching the switch.
23. Risk of scalding: the kettle gets hot during
use. Therefore use only the handle to pick it
up and open the lid only after the kettle has
cooled down.
24. Do not use it near the water in bathtubs,
sinks or other containers.
25. Only fill the kettle with water. Milk and
instant beverages will burn and damage the
appliance.
26. The kettle can only be used with the stand
provided.
BEFORE FIRST USE
Carefully wipe the outside of the appliance to
remove any dust that may have accumulated. Dry
with a dry cloth. Remove any labels or stickers.
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.
en
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 the spout.
The water level should not exceed the
max marks or sit below the min level. Too
little water will cause the kettle to switch off
before the water has boiled.
The max 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.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Position the kettle on the power base.
Connect the plug into a power outlet. Press
down the switch: the indicator in the switch
will light up. Then start boiling the water. The
kettle will switch off automatically once the
water has boiled.
Lift the kettle from the power base and then
pour the water.
The kettle will not boil again until the switch
is pressed again. The kettle may be stored
on the power base when not in use.
Ensure that the switch is free of
obstructions and the lid is firmly closed.
The kettle will not turn off if the switch is
constrained or if the lid is open.
Be careful when pouring the water from
your kettle as boiling water may cause
scalds. Do not open the lid while the water in
the kettle is hot.
BOIL-DRY PROTECTION
Should you accidentally let the kettle operate
without water, the boil-dry protection will
automatically switch off the power. If this occurs,
allow the kettle to cool down before filling with
cold water.
CLEANING AND
MAINTENANCE
Always disconnect the appliance from the power
outlet before cleaning.
1.
2.
3.
Never immerse the kettle, power cord
or power base in water and never allow
moisture to get in contact with these parts.
Wipe the outside of the body with a damp
cloth or cleaner. Never use a poisonous
cleaner.
Remember to clean the filter on a regular
basis. For easier cleaning, detach the filter
by pressing it down directly. 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. Follow the instructions on
the package of the descaler. Alternatively, you
may follow the instructions below and use white
vinegar.
1.
2.
Fill the kettle with 3 cups of white vinegar,
then add water to the amount so as to cover
the bottom of the kettle completely. Leave
the solution in the kettle overnight.
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.
