Before first use
Remove any promotional material attached
to your kettle. It is recommended that before
first use, the kettle is filled to the maximum
level with cold tap water, boiled and water
discarded. Your kettle will only operate
when positioned on the power base with
the ‘On/Off’ switch in the ‘On’ position. The
kettle will automatically switch off once the
water has boiled.
Take care to hold the kettle level, especially
when filled to the maximum level. To re-boil
it may be necessary to wait for a few seconds
to allow the control to reset.
If further heating of the kettle is not
required, switch ‘Off’ at the power outlet,
unplug the power cord and empty the water
from the kettle. Replace the kettle onto the
power base and close the lid.

base and open lid by pressing the lid release
button. Fill with the desired amount of water.
Always fill the kettle between the
minimum (250ml) and maximum
(1000ml) marks on the water window.
Too little water will result in the kettle
switching ‘Off’ before the water has
boiled. Filling above the maximum
mark (MAX) may result in boiling
water splashing from the kettle.
Ensure the lid is locked firmly into place.
Position the kettle securely onto the power
base. Insert the power plug into a 230/240V
power outlet and switch on.
Press the ‘On/Off’ switch to the ‘On’
position for water to boil.
This kettle must only be used with
the power base supplied. Use caution
when pouring water from your kettle,
as boiling water will scald. Do not
pour the water too quickly.
The kettle will automatically switch ‘off’
once the water has boiled. Lift the kettle
from the power base and pour the water.
The kettle is fitted with a safety device,
which protects against overheating should
the appliance be operated with insufficient
water. If this occurs, the kettle will stop
heating. Switch ‘Off’ at the power outlet and
allow kettle to cool before refilling. Remove
the kettle from the power base and add
water. Return the kettle to the power base.

For additional safety, your kettle is fitted
with an additional thermal cut out. In
the event of overheating, the kettle will
automatically shut down to prevent further
damage. Should this occur, take your kettle
to an authorized Breville Service Centre.

Care, Cleaning & storage
Always switch ‘off’ at the power outlet and
unplug the appliance from the power outlet
before cleaning.
The concealed element in the base of
the kettle is made from high quality
stainless steel. Any brown stains
appearing are the results of mineral
deposits and are not rust.
Removal of Mineral Deposits
Mineral deposits in tap water may cause the
kettle interior and water gauge to discolour
over time. This may be removed by using
a proprietary kettle descaler, or as per the
instruction below:
1. Fill the kettle until 2⁄3 full with 1 part
white vinegar and 2 parts water. Boil
and allow to stand overnight.
2. Empty the solution from the kettle. Fill
the kettle with clean water, bring to boil
and discard the water.
To Clean the Exterior
The outside of the kettle may be wiped over
with a damp cloth and polished with a soft
dry cloth.
To prevent damage to the kettle do
not use chemicals, alkaline cleaning
agents, steel wool or abrasive cleaners
to clean the inside or outside of the
kettle. Use a mild cleaning agent with
a soft damp cloth.
Ensure the kettle is switched off, clean and
dry before storing. Ensure the lid is closed
and locked securely into place. Wrap the
power cord around the cord storage under
the power base. Stand the kettle upright
on the power base. Do not store anything
on top.
3. Repeat step 2 and the kettle will be
ready for use.
Never immerse the kettle base, switch
area, power base, power cord or power
plug in water, or allow moisture to
come into contact with these parts.
