before first use
Please follow the information on the use of BRITA® filter cartridges and the BRITA® Memo
indicated in the BRITA® information guide.
1. Remove any packaging/promotional material from the kettle.
2. Remove the filter cartridge and follow Preparing the BRITA® MAXTRA® cartridge
instructions on page 5.
3. Open the lid and lift out the filter funnel. Wash it in warm, soapy water. Rinse and dry
thoroughly then replace the filter funnel.
4. Position the kettle on a dry, level, stable, secure work surface.
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.
preparing the BRITA® MAXTRA® cartridge
1. Remove the cartridge from its wrapping (it is normal
for the cartridge to appear moist during storage).
2. Immerse the cartridge in cold water and shake gently
to remove any air bubbles. There is no need to presoak this cartridge before use.
3. Insert the cartridge into the filter funnel and push it
firmly into place. When correctly fitted, the cartridge
should remain in place when the funnel is turned
4. Fill the filter funnel with cold tap water and allow it
to filter through, then discard the water. Repeat this
process, again discarding the water.
5. Refill the filter funnel with water - the BRITA®
MAXTRA® cartridge is now ready for use. You do not
need to keep the filter cartridge immersed in water.
Always make sure that you have MAXTRA® spare
cartridges to hand. When buying new cartridges
look for the BRITA® MAXTRA® filter on the cartridge
When it is time to replace the BRITA® MAXTRA® filter
cartridge after 4 weeks use, simply lift the handle
on top of the cartridge and pull upwards to remove.
BRITA® cartridges are 100% recyclable. Visit www. or call the BRITA® Care team for further
information on participating retailers.
Repeat steps 1-5 with a new cartridge.
using the BRITA® Memo function
It is important to change your BRITA® filter
cartridge regularly to enjoy the benefits of BRITA®
filtered water. Filtering your water improves the
look and taste of hot drinks by reducing limescale
(carbonate hardness), chlorine and other
The BRITA® Memo automatically reminds you
when your filter cartridge needs to be changed.
When you have fitted and prepared your filter
cartridge, start the Memo as follows:
1. Press and hold the Start button until 4 bars
appear on the display and flash twice. The
Memo is now set.
2. The flashing dot in the corner of the display
indicates that the Memo is working.
3. Every week, one bar will disappear to indicate
the remaining cartridge life. When only one bar
is showing, check that you have a replacement
filter cartridge available.
4. After 4 weeks, all four bars will disappear and
a flashing arrow will appear to indicate that the
cartridge should be replaced.
Wash and dry the filter funnel, insert a new
cartridge and restart the Memo as described
Please note that the Memo is only intended to be
used with BRITA® filter cartridges.
Lighting sequence
The lights used to illuminate your kettle are LEDs. The amount of energy used by LEDs is
very small—a fraction of the energy used by a normal light bulb.
Kettle plugged in, kettle on/off switch OFF
The Spectra stand-by illumination is active.
The water chamber softly glows through
the colour spectrum. The Spectra stand-by
illumination will go out after approximately
20 mins.
Kettle plugged in, kettle on/off switch ON
The water chamber illuminates and
changes from blue to red (assuming
that the water is cool) to indicate the
progress of the boiling cycle. The redder
the illumination, the closer the water is to
boiling. The on/off switch illuminates blue
during the boiling process.
Stand-by illumination
Your Breville filter kettle is fitted with Spectra stand-by illumination that lights the kettle
body with everchanging mood lighting. The Spectra stand-by illumination will go out after
approximately 20 minutes.
To restart the Spectra stand-by illumination do one of the following:
lift the kettle off the power base and replace it again
switch off the power supply socket and then switch it back on again
boil the kettle as normal
To switch off the Spectra stand-by illumination, simply turn the power supply off at the wall
socket or remove the plug.
The kettle does not need to have water inside whilst in the Spectra stand-by illumination
mode. However, please ensure that the kettle is filled with water, as per the instructions in
this book, prior to boiling.
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. The Filter
and filter funnel must be fitted to the kettle in order for it to operate correctly.
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. Allow a short time after filling for the water to pass
through the filter.
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 kettle is switched on, the switch and the water level window will illuminate.
As the water heats up, the water level illumination will change from blue to red.
6. When the water reaches boiling point, the kettle will switch off automatically. The
water level window illumination will switch back to the Specra stand-by illumination.
7. 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.
If the kettle boils dry
If the kettle is used without enough water in it, a built in fail-safe device will automatically
switch it off.
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.
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.
Descale your kettle to keep it working efficiently. Use a proprietary descaling product
following the manufacturer’s instructions carefully. Please note that when using the
BRITA® filter cartridge properly and regularly, you would need to descale your kettle
less often.
When descaling the kettle using a descaling product, you must remove the BRITA®
filter cartridge and the filter funnel. After descaling, thoroughly rinse the kettle then
refit the filter funnel and the BRITA® filter.
Always follow the manufacturers instructions carefully when descaling the kettle.
Each time the filter cartridge is replaced, wash the filter funnel in warm, soapy water,
rinse thoroughly and dry before preparing and fitting the new filter cartridge.
The MAXTRA® cartridge is 100% recyclable. Look out for BRITA® recycling points in
major retailers or visit for more information.
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 and use the recycle-more bank locator. also offers top tip and advice on all aspects of recycling, making it
easier and quicker to protect our environment and recycle-more!
