Read the operating instructions carefully before
using the appliance for the first time and preserve
this booklet for later reference. Pass the manual on
to whomsoever might acquire the appliance at a later date.
• Arrange for defective power plugs and/or cables
to be replaced at once by qualified technicians
or our Customer Service Department.
• Always remove the plug from the power socket
after use. Simply switching the appliance off is
not sufficient, as the appliance is under power
for as long as the plug is connected to the socket.
Intended use
To avoid burns and other injuries:
• Always heat water with the lid closed, otherwise
the automatic cut-out may not function. Boiling
water could then spray out over the rim.
• Hot steam clouds may be released. The boiler
also becomes very hot during operation.
Wear oven mitts.
• Ensure that the appliance is standing securely and
vertically before switching it on. Boiling water
can cause an unstable kettle to fall over.
• This appliance is not intended for use by individuals
(including children) with restricted physical, physiological or intellectual abilities or deficiences in
experience and/or knowledge unless they are
supervised by a person responsible for their safety
or receive from this person instruction in how the
appliance is to be used.
• Children should be supervised to ensure that
they do not play with the appliance.
• Do not use an external timing switch or a
separate remote control system to operate the
appliance.
• Never leave the appliance unsupervised whilst
in use.
This appliance is intended for the boiling-up of water
in domestic households. It is not intended for use
with other liquids or for commercial applications.
Technical Data

Safety information
To avoid potentially fatal injury
through electric shock:
• Ensure that the base with the electrical connections
does not come into contact with water! If it has
unintentionally come into contact with water, first
allow it to dry out completely before taking it
into use.
• Only use the water boiler with the supplied base.
• Ensure that the power cable never becomes wet
or damp during operation. Lay the cable so that
it cannot be trapped or otherwise damaged.

Boiling water
1 Unlocking button
2 ON/OFF switch with integrated control lamps
3 Base
4 Scale with integrated control lamps
5 Pourer sieve
Danger
Never place the electrical base 3 in close proximity
to water – a potentially fatal risk!
Caution
Always use fresh tap water. Do not consume any
water that has already stood in the water boiler for
longer than one hour. Do not reboil water that has
cooled down. Always pour old water away.
Microbes could have formed in it!
Commissioning
Caution
Always and only use fresh tap water in the water
boiler! Do NOT consume water that is not specifically designated as drinking water. If you do, there
will be a risk of damage to your health!
• Lift the kettle off of the base when filling it!
• Open the lid by pressing the unlocking button
1.
• Hold the kettle upright while filling it. Only in this
way can you correctly read the markings
on the scale 4. Fill the kettle...
– at least to the MIN mark, so that the device does
not overheat,
– no higher than the MAX mark, so that no boiling
water spills out.
• First close the lid and then place the kettle onto
the base 3, ensuring that it is is firmly seated on
the base 3.
• Now insert the plug into the mains power socket.
• Press the ON/OFF switch 2 down until it engages
downwards.
• The control lamp integrated in the scale 4, as
well as the control lamp in the on/off switch 2,
indicate that the appliance is now heating itself
up.
• The appliance switches itself off, and the control
lamps go out, as soon as the water is on the boil.
The ON/OFF switch 2 is released upwards.
• Before taking the appliance into use, ensure that ...
– the appliance, the plug and the power cable are
in good working order and...
– all packaging materials have been removed from
the device.
• Fill the appliance with water up to the MAX marking
and let it come to a full boil once – as described
in the next section.
• After it has boiled, pour this water away.
• Rinse the water boiler out with clear water.
• Fill the appliance with water up to the MAX marking
on the scale 4 and then bring it to the boil.
When done, pour this water away also.
The appliance is now ready for use.

In the event of scale deposits:
Warning
• Before descaling, remove the pourer sieve 5
(see chapter "Removing/replacing the pourer
sieve").
• Obtain any decalcifying agent suitable for kitchen
utensils (e.g. decalcifiers for coffee machines)
from a hardware shop. Proceed as detailed in
the instructions provided for the use of the
decalcfying agent.
First remove the plug from the wall power socket before
you lift the kettle from the base 3. This avoids the
risk that any water splashing out could come into
contact with live electrical connections in the base 3,
which could cause a short circuit.
Injury hazard
For safety reasons, the lid should not be opened
while the water is boiling or is very hot.
There is a risk of receiving severe scalds.
Removing/replacing the pouring sieve
• Open the lid.
• Press the retainer at the top of the pourer sieve
5 down and, at the same time, pull the pourer
sieve 5 inwards.
• Remove the pourer sieve 5.
• Clean the pouring sieve 5 with a lightly
moistened dishcloth and under running water.
• Replace the pourer sieve 5 after cleaning it.
Ensure that the retainer engages and that the
pourer sieve 5 is firmly seated.
Cleaning and Care
Danger
Do not open any part of the housing.
There are no user-servicable elements inside.
An open housing can create the risk of a lethal
electrical shock.
Notice
Should the scale deposits in the pourer sieve 5 be
firmly established, lay it in a water-vinegar solution
having a ratio of 6:1 for a few hours. The scale
deposits will dissolve themselves. Rinse the pourer
sieve 5 with lots of clear water.
Never submerse any parts of the appliance in
water or other liquids! This can create the risk
of a life-threatening electrical shock if residual
liquid comes into contact with powered
components.
Risk of personal injuries
Storage
Before cleaning the appliance, remove the plug
from the mains power socket and allow the appliance
to cool down.
Allow the appliance to cool off completely before
putting it into storage.
• Wind the power cable around the cable retainer on
the underside of the base 3.
• Store the appliance in a dry place.
• Clean the exterior surfaces and the power cord
with a slighly damp cloth. Be sure to dry the
appliance well before taking it back into use.
• For stainless steel surfaces, you can use appropriate
cleaning agents from a specialized dealer.
• Never use detergents, abrasive cleaners or solvents.
These can damage the appliance.
