Using the BRITA® Memo Function
It is important to change your BRITA® filter cartridge regularly

Using Your Hot Cup
Before using your Hot Cup for the first time
Remove your Hot Cup carefully from the box. Remove any packaging and
promotional material and position your Hot Cup on a dry, level, secure work surface
away from the edge.
Follow the instructions below and discard the first full tank of water. This will remove
any residues that may remain from the manufacturing process.
Fit the filter funnel and the BRITA® MAXTRA® water filter and set the BRITA® Memo
—see pages 6 and 7.
Using your Hot Cup
Always position your Hot Cup in such a way that the start button cannot be
accidentally operated, especially by children. As you use your Hot Cup, a certain
portion of the water boiled will be transferred back to the water reservoir. This
will mean the water reservoir may become hot. Always use care when handling
your Hot Cup.
1. Press the lid flap release button to open the lid flap.
2. Fill the filter funnel from your cold tap up to the MAX mark on the filter funnel. Allow
the water to filter through into the water chamber. Repeat until the water level in the
chamber is no higher than the MAX marking on the water chamber.
3. Close the lid and press the stop button. This will make sure that your hot cup will not
immediately start a boil cycle when you place it onto the power base.
4. Connect your Hot Cup to a mains supply socket.
5. Place a suitable cup or container with a tea bag, coffee, sugar, etc. below the
dispensing nozzle. Never operate your Hot Cup without a cup or suitable container
placed below the dispensing nozzle. Adjust the dispensing control to the required
setting. The control adjusts the quantity of boiling water dispensed by your Hot Cup.
For smaller cups like teacups, set the control towards the setting; for larger cups
like coffee mugs, set the control towards the setting. If you are not sure which
setting to use, it’s best to use a lower setting until you gain experience using your Hot
6. Press the start button. The body will light up blue and your Hot Cup will start to boil.
7. The selected quantity of boiling water will be dispensed into the cup. Your Hot Cup
is now ready to use again. If, after just having boiled, the start button doesn’t operate,
simply wait a few seconds before trying it again.
Stopping your Hot Cup
If you have started the boil procedure and then decide you want to stop your Hot Cup for
any reason, simply press the stop button. You can also stop water that is being dispensed
by pressing the stop button. The boiled water will be safely transferred back into the
water reservoir.
Always switch off and unplug your Hot Cup and allow it to completely cool
before cleaning. Never immerse the base unit, power cord or plug in water or
any other liquid. Do not use harsh abrasives, chemicals or oven cleaners.
Emptying your Hot Cup
1. Fill your Hot Cup with a quantity of water that just covers the perforated stainless
steel element cover.
2. Place a suitable cup or container below the dispensing nozzle. Set the dispense
control to the setting.
3. Press the start button.
4. After the water has been dispensed, empty the cup and replace it under the
dispensing nozzle.
5. Press the start button again.
6. Discard the water.

Clean the exterior surface of your Hot Cup with a damp cloth and then polish it with a
soft, dry cloth. Do not use steel wool pads or harsh/abrasive cleaners.
Descaling your Hot Cup
To maintain it’s performance, your Hot Cup will require descaling once every three
months or so. You may need to descale your Hot Cup more frequently if you live in a
hard water area.
By changing the MAXTRA® cartridge more frequently, you will need to descale less
often. BRITA® recommends to exchange the MAXTRA® cartridge every 4 weeks.
1. Completely remove the lid and remove the filter funnel and filter. Fill your Hot Cup
to the MAX marking on the water chamber and place an empty cup on the drip
tray. Replace the lid. Select a suitable setting for the dispensing control and press the
start button. Wait for the water to be dispensed into the cup.
2. Add a citric acid-based proprietary descaling product to the hot water in the cup
and stir.
3. Tip the contents of the cup into your Hot Cup and close the lid.
4. Place the empty cup on the drip tray and press the start button.
5. Wait for the water to be dispensed into the cup.
6. Discard the water from the cup.
7. Repeat steps 4, 5 and 6 until your Hot Cup is empty. Fill your Hot Cup with fresh
water to the MAX fill level and place an empty cup on the drip tray.
8. Press the start button and wait for the water to be dispensed into the cup.
9. Discard the water in the cup.
10. Repeat steps 8 and 9 until your Hot Cup is empty. This will rinse any remaining
descaling solution from your Hot Cup

Hot Cup is ready for use again.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)
WEEE is the fastest growing waste stream in the UK, growing by at least 5% each year.
The UK public alone dispose of over 1.2 million tonnes of electrical and electronic waste
every year; this would fill the new Wembley Stadium six times over.
Much of the UK’s electronic waste ends up in landfill sites. It has been estimated that
landfill space in the UK will run out within the next 10 years if we do not increase the
amount of waste we recycle.
WEEE that is not recycled can have negative impacts on soil, air and water quality which
can lead to environmental damage and which can also lead to negative impacts on
human and animal health.
Recycling household electrical equipment – regulations
With effect from July 2007, the UK’s Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)
Regulation require that all producers of electrical equipment are now obliged to pay for
recycling of household electrical goods, where previously this bill was met by councils
or items were not recycled at all. These regulations also require that all retailers both
actively assist in delivering a UK wide WEEE collection infrastructure and encourage the
participation of consumers in recycling electronic equipment.
So that you can get your waste electrical goods recycled, we have contributed towards
a national fund to assist local councils to further develop their existing waste electronics
collection facilities, which will in turn allow producers of this equipment to meet their
The Crossed out Wheeled Bin Symbol
All new electrical and electronic equipment should be marked with the crossed out
wheeled bin, which aims to encourage you to separate out WEEE from other household
waste and to dispose of it at a recycling facility.
For advice on all aspects of recycling, to find out how to minimise your effect on the
environment and locate your nearest recycling facilities for electronic waste please visit
www.recycle-more.co.uk and use the recycle-more bank locator.
Recycle-more.co.uk also offers top tip and advice on all aspects of recycling, making it
easier and quicker to protect our environment and recycle-more!
