temperature display will shut off and will display the default
temperature of 212°F when the kettle is placed back on to the base.

cool down, then Power on.
NOTE: Never allow the kettle to boil dry or drop below the minimum
mark.
IF THE KETTLE DOES BOIL DRY
If the kettle is operated in accordance with instructions for use, it is
unlikely that the kettle will boil dry. However, in the event that the
kettle does boil dry, it is protected by a boil dry, fail-safe device which
will switch the kettle off automatically on sensing a boil dry situation
and keep it switched off until the kettle is refilled with at least the
minimum amount of water. Always allow the kettle to cool for half an
hour before reuse if the kettle has boiled dry.
Filter instructions
A mesh filter has been integrated into the kettle to reduce the amount of
scale residues entering your beverages or food. The filter is removable
for cleaning. To reduce scale build-up, empty out any residual water
after boiling.
How often the filter should be cleaned will vary according to where
you live and how often you use your kettle. Filter should be cleaned
whenever there are noticeable deposits left on the filter and especially if
the rate of pouring decreases.
Filter removal/cleaning/refitting
Important: The kettle must be switched off, disconnected from the
power outlet and allowed to cool down completely prior to removing
or refitting the filter. Do not use excessive force, as this might damage
the filter or the lid.
1. Empty the kettle and lift lid.
2. Grip the top part of the filter with index finger and thumb and
pull upwards. You may have to hold kettle while removing filter.
Caution: Keep fingers clear of mesh. Pressing into mesh may
damage filter.
3. To clean the filter, rinse under a tap while brushing it gently wit
a soft brush.
4. To refit filter, once again hold filter with index finger and thumb.
Gently push filter back into the kettle until you hear a click. The
filter is now reattached. Gently tug on filter to ensure filter is
attached properly.
5. Rinse out kettle with fresh water and it’s ready for use.

Care and cleaning of your electric kettle

2. Empty the vinegar solution from the electric kettle. Remove any
stain remaining inside by rubbing with a damp cloth.
3. Fill the electric kettle with clean water. Place kettle on power base
and bring to a boil, then discard water. Repeat and the electric kettle
will be ready to use.

from electrical outlet before cleaning. Do not immerse kettle or
power base in water or other liquid.
