CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
1.Removing limescale deposits
■■ Limescale deposits inside the kettle may negatively affect its lifetime, so it
is important to regularly remove it based on how frequently the kettle is
used. During standard use (3 to 5 times per day), we recommend water scale
deposits be removed:
–once per month in areas with hard and very hard water;
–once every two to three months in areas with soft and medium hard
water.
■■ To remove limescale deposits it is possible to use:
–8% white vinegar, generally available in stores. Fill the kettle with 1 l of
water and ¼ l of vinegar. Bring the solution to a boil and leave it to act in
the kettle for 2 hours. Then empty the kettle and before further use, boil
clean water in it four to five times.
–citric acid. Boil 1.5 l of water in the kettle, into the boiled water, add 30 g of
citric acid and allow the solution to act for about 30 minutes. Then empty
the kettle and before further use, boil clean water in it four to five times.
2.Cleaning the outer surface
■■ Before cleaning, disconnect the power cord from the power socket. Empty
all the contents from the kettle and allow it to cool down.
