before first use
Remove any packaging and promotional material from your kettle and position it on a
stable, secure, dry and level work surface away from the edge.
Before connecting to a power source, make sure your mains supply voltage is the same
as the one indicated on the appliance. Connect the plug to a suitable power outlet and
make sure that the power cord does not overhang the work surface. Excess power cord
can be stored in the power base.
Remove the kettle from the power base and open the lid. Fill your kettle to the maximum
mark and close the lid.
Place the kettle back onto the power base. Switch the kettle on, allow it to boil then
discard the water. Repeat twice. This will remove any residue left over from the
manufacturing process.
using your kettle
If this kettle is filled above the maximum level mark, hot water may be ejected
from the spout during boiling. Beware of steam coming from the spout or lid
especially during refilling. Never open the lid when the kettle is boiling.
1. With the kettle switched off, plug the power base into a suitable power outlet.
2. Remove the kettle from the power base before filling it with water. Do not fill the kettle
through the spout.
3. Open the lid and fill the kettle with water. Don’t overfill the kettle and always
ensure that there is sufficient water in the kettle for it to operate correctly. This is
approximately 250ml or 1 teacup full. Always check the water level when the kettle is
positioned on its power base.
4. Close the lid and then switch the kettle on. Make sure that the lid is closed correctly
to ensure safe operation.
5. When the water reaches boiling point, the kettle will switch off automatically.
6. You may also switch the kettle off manually at any time by moving the switch to the
off position.
Always use caution when carrying your kettle when it is full of boiling water and when
pouring it.
Energy saving hints and tips
A Breville kettle, if used correctly, is a very energy efficient device. Why not try some of
these energy saving tips:
Only boil the water you need. Overfilling your kettle by one cup is the equivalent to
using an energy saving light bulb for one hour!
It is not always necessary to re-boil your kettle. For example, one litre of water will
still be at 90°C after five minutes - the perfect temperature for a cup of coffee.
using your kettle
If the kettle boils dry
If the kettle is operated with insufficient water a built in fail-safe device will automatically
switch off the kettle.
Unplug the kettle and allow it to cool. When the kettle has cooled down sufficiently
the device will reset itself.
Once the device has reset, refill the kettle with cold water and use it as normal.
Always unplug the kettle from the mains supply socket and allow it to
completely cool down before cleaning or descaling it. Do not immerse the kettle,
power base or power cord and plug in water or any other liquid.
1. Clean the exterior surface of the kettle with a damp cloth and then polish with a soft
dry cloth. Do not use steel wool pads or harsh/abrasive cleaners.
2. Descale your kettle regularly to keep it working efficiently. Use a proprietary descaling
product following the manufacturer’s instructions carefully.
Cleaning the filter
Before removing or refitting the filter, switch off the kettle and empty it. Allow
it to cool completely, then unplug the power base from the mains supply socket.
Never operate the kettle without the filter fitted.
Open the lid and remove the filter from behind the spout.
Rinse the filter under a tap whilst brushing it with a soft brush. In hard water areas it
may be necessary to descale the filter using a descaling agent.
Use a proprietary descaling product following the manufacturer’s instructions
carefully. The filter may be washed safely in the cutlery rack of a dishwasher.
Refit the filter back into the kettle.
