PREPARING THE GLASS TEA KETTLE FOR USE
Before first use
Before using your Glass Tea Kettle for
the first time, wash the kettle and steeper
assembly, including the lid, in hot, soapy
water, then rinse with clean water and dry.
Fill the Glass Tea Kettle with water to the
MAX fill line, place the steeper assembly
in the Glass Tea Kettle, and run one cycle
at the maximum temperature. To avoid
damage, do not fully immerse the Glass
Tea Kettle in water, and do not use abrasive
cleaners or scouring pads.
ENGLISH
USING THE GLASS TEA KETTLE
NOTE: The entire Glass Tea Kettle is
hand-wash only. To avoid damage, do
not wash any part of the Glass Tea Kettle,
steeper, lids, steeper holder or the base
with power cord in a dishwasher.
1
Place the base with power cord
on a flat, sturdy surface and plug
it into a grounded outlet, a chime
will sound indicating that the power
is on. If desired, wrap excess cord
around the cord holder on the
bottom of the base.

STEEPING CHART
NOTE: Making the perfect cup of tea is easy with the KitchenAid Glass Tea Kettle. Water
temperature and steep time are two key elements for optimal tea flavour. For best results,
follow the recommendation on your tea’s packaging for suggested water temperature
and steep times. If it does not have these suggestions, see the chart below. Keep in mind,
steep time determines flavour, so use a timer to find your perfect strength.

NOTE: Some teas call for different temperatures. Check your tea package for
suggested steeping times and temperatures.
OPTIONAL METHOD – BREWING WITH TEA BAGS
The Glass Tea Kettle may be used for tea bags as well as loose leaf tea. Use the following
methods if you prefer to use tea bags.
1
Using the Glass Tea Kettle tea
steeper: After the water reaches the
correct temperature for brewing (see
the “Steeping chart”), cut any strings
or tags off of the tea bag, and place
the tea bag directly into the tea
steeper. Brew your tea as normal.
2
Placing tea bags directly into the
Glass Tea Kettle: After the water
reaches the correct temperature for
brewing (see the “Steeping chart”),
lift the tea steeper lid off of the
Glass Kettle, and place the tea bag
string over the inner edge of the
kettle lid. Then, insert and twist the
tea steeper lid to catch the string
and suspend the tea bag in the
water. Brew your tea as normal.

Fill the Glass Tea Kettle with filtered
water up to the desired level for the
amount of tea you want to brew. Do
not fill past the Max line.
2
Put the lid back on the Glass Tea
Kettle, without the steeper. The
two lids are properly locked into
each other when the indicator on
the tea steeper lid is lined up with
the indicator next to the locked
symbol on the kettle lid. After
locking the lids together, place
the Glass Tea Kettle onto the
power base.
4
Press the I/O (on/off) button on the
base to start heating the water. The
light around the button will flash
while the water is heating in the
Glass Tea Kettle.
IMPORTANT: We recommend adding
tea and the steeper only after the water
is heated.
3
Select the appropriate temperature
for the kind of tea you are brewing
by sliding the temperature selector
to the correct setting. See the
“Steeping chart” for more detailed
information.

While the water is heating, place the
tea steeper in the tea steeper holder
to keep it steady while filling it with
tea leaves (or tea bags). Follow the
instructions on the tea packaging for
the amount of tea to use.
OPTIONAL: To boil water instead of
steeping tea, slide the temperature
selector to HERBAL (100°C).
NOTE: For tea that does not include
brewing directions, start with 15 g per
300 ml cup. Add more tea if the flavour is
too weak, and less tea if the flavour is too
strong. Experiment for the best flavour.
TIP: For best results, we recommend prewetting the tea leaves in the steeper with
a little warm water before the steeper is
added to the kettle. (This can be done
while the steeper is in the steeper holder).
This will allow the leaves to settle into the
steeper during the steeping process.
6
Once the water reaches the correct
temperature for brewing your
selected tea, a chime will sound
and the light around the I/O (on/off)
button will stop flashing, but remain
lit, indicating that the water is ready
for steeping the tea.
7
Remove the tea steeper lid from the
kettle after the desired temperature
is reached.

Hold the tea steeper lid in one
hand, and grip the tea steeper
holder in the other hand. With slight
downward pressure, rotate the tea
steeper lid into place on the tea
steeper. Then, using the handle, lift
the steeper assembly up, out of the
steeper holder.
Use a timer to brew your tea for
the appropriate time. See the
“Steeping chart” for more detailed
information.

Place the tea steeper lid assembly
inside the kettle lid. Twist the handle
so that the tea steeper lid locks into
place in the kettle lid. When locked
into place, the indicator on the
tea steeper lid will line up with the
indicator next to the locked symbol
on the kettle lid.
11
After steeping for the desired
amount of time, twist the lid to
release and lift the steeper assembly
from the Glass Tea Kettle. Using the
handle on the tea steeper lid, place
the tea steeper assembly back in the
tea steeper holder.
NOTE: Use the handle to remove. The
steeper cylinder will be hot.

holder in the other hand. With slight
downward pressure, rotate the tea
steeper lid off of the tea steeper.
Then, place the tea steeper lid back
inside the kettle lid, twisting to lock
into place.
13
The kettle automatically goes
into Warm mode after reaching
temperature and holds for 30
minutes at Warm (70°C). The light
around the I/O (on/off) button will
remain lit while the Glass Tea Kettle
is in Warm mode. If the kettle is
removed, to keep the kettle warm
after replacing it on the base, slide
the temperature selector over to
WARM and press the I/O (on/off)
button again.
NOTE: Use the handle to remove. The
steeper cylinder will be hot.
TIP: If the tea steeper lid is stuck on the
tea steeper, this issue may be caused by
twisting the tea steeper lid too tightly
onto the tea steeper. Use a slight pressure
to rotate the tea steeper lid when placing
on the tea steeper. Do not over-rotate.

CARE AND CLEANING
DESCALING THE GLASS TEA KETTLE
Calcium deposits (scale) from water will
build up in the Glass Tea Kettle over time
and impair brewing efficiency and tea
quality. If you notice scale buildup inside
your kettle or that it takes longer than
usual to brew, then it is time to descale. To
get the best performance from your Glass
Tea Kettle, clean frequently. The cleaning
interval will depend on the hardness of
the water you put into the Glass Tea Kettle.
Descaling should be done as soon as
possible to preserve the performance
and life of your Glass Tea Kettle.
To descale the Glass Tea Kettle:
1. F
ill the Glass Tea Kettle with white
vinegar to the MIN (0.5 L) mark.
2. Add water to the 1.0 L mark.
3. Boil and allow to stand overnight.
4. E
mpty the solution from the Glass
Tea Kettle.
5. F
ill the Glass Tea Kettle with water,
bring to a boil and drain out the
water. Repeat this step twice. The
Glass Tea Kettle is now ready to use.
CLEANING THE GLASS TEA KETTLE AND ACCESSORIES
IMPORTANT: To avoid damage, never immerse the Glass Tea Kettle or the base in
water or place in the dishwasher.
