First read the instructions in the section titled “SAFETY WARNINGS”. Before cleaning, unplug your kettle and let it cool down. Wipe with a damp cloth, then dry. Avoid using abrasive cleaning agents. Do not immerse the kettle, base, cord or plug in water at any time. Kettle, filter, and base are NOT dishwasher‐safe. Always unplug your kettle when not in use. Descaling The major cause of damage to kettles is limescale and your kettle will require regular maintenance to ensure that it continues to work properly. Limescale deposits build up over time, blocking important parts of the kettle and stopping it from working properly. Remember:  Descale every few months  Don’t wait for limescale to build up before you descale  You can buy descaler from us at or in many high street shops  Clean the limescale filter if your kettle has one Types of problems caused by limescale build‐up:  Colour – Limescale will discolour your kettle. 5
Performance – your kettle will take longer to boil (wasting electricity) and eventually will switch off before it has boiled. Taste – limescale can give the water a chalky taste and limescale flakes will give a gritty texture. Other care tips:  To clean the outside of your kettle use a soft, wet cloth.  The first time you use your kettle the water may taste of plastic. Always boil your kettle a couple of times before you use it to make drinks. If the taste persists add 2 teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda to the full kettle, boil and discard the water.  If you find drops of water under your kettle, don’t worry ‐ it is just condensation.  Most kettles will cut‐out if they boil dry. If this happens, consult your instruction manual. Connection to Power 
