CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the filters
•
The removable filter serves to capture scale deposits and prevent them from getting into the
prepared beverage. Regularly clean the filter under running water using a fine nylon brush or
submerge it for several hours into a vinegar-water solution (recommended dilution ratio 1:2). After
applying the solution rinse the filter under clean running water.
Cleaning the kettle
•
Regularly remove water scale deposits from inside the kettle based on how frequently the kettle
is used. During standard use of the kettle (3 to 5 times per day), we recommend to remove water
scale deposits:
–
once per month in areas with hard and very hard water;
–
once every two to three months in areas with soft and medium soft water.
•
To remove water scale deposits it is possible to use:
–
8% white vinegar, generally available in stores. Put ½ l of vinegar into the kettle and allow it
to settle for 2 hours without boiling. Then empty the kettle and before further use boil clean
water in it four to five times.
–
citric acid. Boil ½ l of water in the kettle, into the boiled water add 30 g of citric acid and allow
it to settle for about 30 minutes. Then empty the kettle and before further use boil clean water
in it four to five times.
•
To clean the exterior of the kettle use a dry cloth or a cloth dipped in a weak solution of neutral
kitchen detergent. After applying the kitchen detergent, wipe the surface with a lightly damp cloth
and then wipe dry.
•
To clean the base use only a dry cloth.
•
To clean the kettle and the base never use cleaning agents causing abrasion, petrol, solvents, etc.
