To use
1. Place the kettle and stand on a stable, flat, heat resistant surface and away
from surfaces that may be damaged by steam.
2. Fully unwind the cable from the stand and plug in. For safety do not allow the
cable to dangle over the edge of units.
3. Remove the kettle from the stand and lift the lid. Fill to the required level
using the markings on the clear water gauge as a guide. Do not fill past the
MAX (1.7 litre) or below the MIN (0.5 litre) level.
4. Close the lid fully until it clips into place and ensure that the switch is in the
off position (lift switch up) before replacing on the stand.
5. Turn the kettle so that the spout faces away from you and switch the kettle
on by pressing the switch downward (I). The kettle will start to operate and
the light within the switch will illuminate.
6. When the water boils, the kettle will switch off automatically and the
indicator light will go off.
7. To stop or interrupt the boiling process, switch the appliance off by lifting the
switch up before removing the kettle from the stand.
Notes:
 Before using for the first time, fill the kettle to the maximum level, bring to
the boil and then discard water. Repeat this step two further times.
 This kettle is fitted with a safety device that automatically switches off the
heater element if the appliance is inadvertently switched on when empty or if
it boils dry. In this case allow the kettle to cool completely (minimum 15
minutes) before refilling with cold water. The kettle will resume operation
after refilling.
