Electrical safety and cord handling
Make sure your outlet voltage and circuit frequency correspond to the
voltage stated on the appliance rating label and your outlet socket is properly
earthed. If this is not the case, contact the after sales support line and do not
use the kettle.
Do not use any other appliance at the same time on the same electrical
circuit as it may overload the circuit and blow the fuse or circuit breaker.
To protect against fire and electric shock, do not immerse the cord, plug,
power base or the kettle itself in water or other liquid. Do not expose the
electrical connections to water.
The cord should be run in such a way that there will be no risk of anyone
pulling it inadvertently.
Do not kink, bend, squash, strain or damage the power cord and protect it
from sharp edges and heat. Do not let the cord hang over the edge of a table
or benchtop. Do not let it touch hot surfaces.
Do not pick up or operate the appliance if the power supply cord, plug,
power base or kettle housing is damaged, or after it malfunctions or has
been damaged in any manner.
A damaged cord or plug must be replaced by the manufacturer or a qualified
person in order to avoid a hazard.
In case of damage, contact the after sales support line for advice.
Make sure all electrical connections are clean and dry before turning on.
NOTE: Unless your home is already fitted with a residual current device
(safety switch), we recommend using this kettle with a residual
current device to lessen the risk of scalding or other injury from hot
water, which may be ejected if the heating element ruptures. Contact
a qualified electrician for advice.

Product Overview
Before first use
Unpack the appliance but keep all packaging materials until you have made
sure your new kettle is undamaged and in good working order. Plastic
wrapping can be a suffocation hazard for babies and young children, so
ensure all packaging materials are out of their reach.
Unwind the cord to its full length and inspect it for damage. Do not use the
appliance if the appliance or its cord have been damaged or are not working
properly. In case of damage, contact our after sales support line for advice
on examination, repair or return of the damaged product.
Read this manual to familiarise yourself with the kettle. Pay particular
attention to the safety instructions on the previous pages.
Make sure the appliance is disconnected from the power supply.
Lift the kettle vertically off the power base, open the lid and fill the kettle
with cold water and boil it (as described on the following page), then discard

1. To fill the kettle, remove it from the power Fig.1
base and open the lid by pressing the lid
button (see Fig.1). Fill with the desired
amount of cold tap water, then close the
lid securely. Alternatively, the kettle may be
filled through the spout.
2. Make sure to fill the kettle at least to
the minimum (0.5L) but not beyond the
maximum (1.7L) level. Too little water will
result in the kettle turning off before the
water has boiled (because of the boil-dry protection). Too much water will
result in boiling water spilling out of the spout when boiling. Take care that no
water spills onto the power base.
3. Pull out the power cord from the base unit's storage recess. Ensure that the
lid is firmly in place before positioning the kettle on the power base. If the
kettle is not placed properly on the power base, the buttons will not work.
With dry hands, plug the power base into an appropriate wall outlet and turn
on power at the outlet.

temperature button (BOIL, 80°, 85°, or 90°, see
Fig.2). The indicator light will glow and the water
will start heating up. Ensure that the lid is firmly
closed. Do not open the lid during use.
5. The kettle will automatically turn itself off
when the water has reached the selected
temperature. The power indicator will no longer
be illuminated.
6. Wait until the water inside the kettle has completely
stopped bubbling before pouring. Remove the
kettle from the power base by gripping the handle
and lifting it off the power base.
CAUTION: Take care when pouring the water to
avoid scalding from boiling water or hot steam.
Do not open the lid while the water in the kettle
is hot.
7. To stop the heating process at any time during
operation, press ON/CANCEL (see Fig.3).
8. To re-boil the water, allow the kettle to cool for 30~60
seconds before pressing BOIL again (see Fig.2).
9. To keep the water warm, press 80°, 85°, or 90°. The
water will be kept warm for 30 minutes (see Fig.4).
10. The kettle may be stored on the power base, but
make sure that the power supply is turned off
when the kettle is not in use.
This kettle allows different temperature selections.
Most black tea requires 100°C. But Green tea,
Jasmine tea and Sencha tea are at their best at 80°C.
You can also use the temperature settings to keep the
water at the selected temperature, so that you won't
have to spend as much time boiling the kettle if you
need to use it again. For a general temperature guide,
see the table on the right.
Other Useful Information
Cleaning and care
lways disconnect the kettle from the power outlet and allow it to
cool before cleaning.
ever immerse the kettle, cord or power base in water. All
connections and sockets must be kept dry.
The outside of your kettle only requires occasional wiping with a damp cloth and,
if necessary, a mild, non-abrasive household detergent. Then wipe dry.
o prevent damage to the kettle, do not use scouring pads, steel
wool, solvents or harsh chemical or alkaline cleaning agents.
Removal of mineral deposits
From time to time, you may need to clean off any mineral deposits (limescale) left
by water inside your kettle, to keep it operating efficiently. How often you have
to do this depends on the water hardness in your area and on how often you use
the kettle. If scaling is a problem in your area, it is important that you clean the
inside of the kettle regularly as scale build-up will damage the heating element
and impair the boil-dry safety feature.
You can use a commercially available descaling agent for household products
(according to the instructions on the packet) or a simple water and vinegar
solution to descale the kettle. Follow the steps below.
1. Fill the kettle with 3 cups of white vinegar and the remainder with water.
2. Let this mixture stand in the kettle overnight. Do not boil.
3. Empty the solution from the kettle. Any stains remaining inside the spout can
be removed by rubbing with a damp cloth.
4. Fill the kettle with fresh, clean water, let it boil and then discard the water.
Repeat with clean, fresh water until all traces of vinegar are removed.

Fruit/Herbal tea
Oolong tea
Black tea
If you accidentally allow the kettle to operate without water, the boil-dry
protection will automatically turn it off. If this occurs, allow the kettle to cool
before filling it with cold water and re-boiling.
Clean the filter regularly to ensure an easy flow of water. Take out the filter from
behind the spout by opening the lid and pulling the filter's latch. Under running
water, rub the filter gently with your fingers. Be careful not to use anything that
could tear or damage the filter when cleaning.
Descale the filter at regular intervals. Soak it in a descaling solution, rub off any
residues gently with your fingers and then rinse the filter thoroughly.
It is possible that spots of what looks like rust may appear on the base. This
is caused by impurities in the water, it is not a fault.
