Your kettle is fitted with a resetting boil-‐dry protector. If the kettle is accidentally switched on with less than the minimum level of water, the boil-‐dry protector will operate to safely cut off the power. To use the kettle after this safety operation has been activated, switch the kettle and the power supply OFF, remove and then replace the kettle on its base, allowing the kettle to cool down before re-‐use. Only use with water inside, between the MIN and the MAX levels. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. o ALWAYS remove lid before filling with water. ALWAYS refit the lid before boiling. 1. Ensure the kettle is unplugged and the switch actuator is in the OFF position. You can only fill the kettle by removing the lid first; do not attempt to spout fill. 2. You can open the lid by squeezing together the lid buttons and pulling upwards to release the lid. If the kettle has been recently used, steam may escape upwards; it is always good practice to angle the lid away from you. SEE PICTURES EARLIER. 3. Fill the kettle, taking care not to splash the rear of the unit, and observing the MIN and MAX levels. The MIN level is 0.3 litres, the MAX capacity is 1.4 litres. If the switch area of the handle is splashed, it should be dried or left to dry before use. 3. 4. For your safety and for correct operation of the kettle, ensure the lid is pushed firmly closed and remains shut during the boiling cycle. 5. Fit the kettle onto the powerbase and ensure the product is level, stable, and that no powercord is hanging over the edge of the work surface or otherwise causing a hazard. 6. Plug the kettle into the power supply and depress the switch actuator into the ON position. The power neon light will become illuminated. 7. 8. 9. 10. When the kettle has finished boiling, the automatic cut-‐off system will switch the kettle OFF. Ensure the power supply is switched off and lift the kettle up and off the powerbase. Take care when pouring. NOTE: you may notice a small amount of moisture on the top face of the powerbase. This is condensation from the vents built into the kettle and is entirely normal. 11. THE BUBBLES AND BOILING ACTION THAT YOU SEE IS ENTIRELY NORMAL. 12. THE KETTLE IS FITTED WITH AN AUTOMATIC CUT-‐OFF SYSTEM THAT ACTIVATES WHEN THE KETTLE IS BOILING AND PRODUCING THE CORRECT QUANTITY OF STEAM. 13. YOU MAY SEE PRE-‐BOILING BUBBLES & THINK THE AUTO CUT-‐OFF IS DELAYED – 14. THIS IS NOT THE CASE. 15. IT IS TYPICALLY circa 20-‐SECONDS BETWEEN PRE-‐BOILING BUBBLES AND AUTO SWITCH-‐ OFF. THIS IS NORMAL AND NOT A VALID CAUSE FOR CONCERN OR RETURN. 16. THE BUBBLES START AT APPROX 92° C, WHICH IS THE IDEAL TEMPERATURE FOR COFFEE . DESCALING YOUR KETTLE If you live in a hard water area, you should regularly descale the kettle using a proprietary kettle descaler; if unavailable, we suggest boiling with clean water mixed with the juice of a fresh lemon. Take care to rinse thoroughly afterwards. Your new Glass Kettle is easy to clean with a small brush if you prefer – but you MUST ensure the brush has no detergent or washing-‐up liquid within it’s bristles. Glass is a smooth material, so scale will take longer to adhere to the inner bowl surface. Please regularly clean to ensure the good looks and life are maintained. CLEANING THE OUTSIDE OF YOUR KETTLE Take care when cleaning the outside of your kettle, and we suggest the following steps to ensure a high quality finish, time after time. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Please note that the warranty does not cover damage caused by failure to clean or descale on a regular basis. Do not immerse the kettle in water Ensure the appliance is switched OFF, is disconnected from the power supply, and is totally cold. Apply a small amount of good quality, branded baby oil onto a soft cloth, and buff onto the exterior parts. Leave for a few moments only, before wiping clean with a fresh, soft cloth; we recommend Microfibre Cleaning Cloths, available from most leading supermarkets. ALWAYS ensure that no oil is allowed to enter the appliance, its controls, or its handle, as a hazard may subsequently occur. Ensure no oil enters the body of the kettle. Ensure the handle and lid are totally dry and not slippy.
