Read the instructions and keep them safe. Pass them of if you pass the kettle on.
Remove all packaging, but keep it till you know the kettle works.
important safeguards
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1 The kettle must only be used by or under the supervision of a responsible adult.
Use and store the kettle out of reach of children.
2 Don’t put the kettle, stand, cable, or plug in liquid. Don’t use the kettle in a
bathroom, near water, or outdoors.
3 The scald hazard lasts long after boiling. Keep the kettle, stand, and cable away
from the edges of worktops and out of reach of children.
4 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be tripped over or caught.
5 Don’t use the kettle without the filter in place – it may spit boiling water.
6 Don’t touch hot surfaces. Use the handle and the lid release button.
7 Don’t open the lid while the water is heating.
8 Take care when pouring – pour slowly, and don’t over-tilt the kettle.
9 Don’t switch on unless the kettle contains at least 2 cups of water.
10 Don’t fill past the max mark, or it may spit boiling water.
11 Remove the kettle from its stand before filling or pouring.
12 Unplug the stand when not in use, before moving and before cleaning. Let the
kettle cool down before cleaning and storing away.
13 Check the lid is fully closed before switching the kettle on, or it may not switch off.
14 Keep the kettle, stand, cable, and plug away from sources of heat.
15 Don’t use the kettle for any purpose other than heating water.
16 Use the kettle only with the stand supplied (and vice versa).
17 This appliance must not be operated by an external timer or remote control system.
18 Don’t use the kettle if it’s damaged or malfunctions.
19 If the cable is damaged, return the kettle, to avoid hazard.
household use only
before using for the first time
• Fill to max, boil, discard the water, then rinse, to remove manufacturing dust, etc.
1 Put the stand on a stable, level surface.
2 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be caught or tripped over.
caution keep clear, steam may escape from the lid
3 Remove the kettle from the stand.
4 Squeeze the lid release towards the handle, to open the lid.
5 Fill with at least 2 cups of water – the coiled part of the element must be covered,
but don’t fill above max.
6 If you overfill, the kettle may spit boiling water.
7 Squeeze the lid release towards the handle, close the lid, then let the lid release go,
to lock the lid closed.
8 Check the lid is closed, or the kettle won’t switch off when it boils.
switching on
9 Put the kettle on the stand – take care not to spill.
10 Plug the stand into a wall socket.
11 Move the switch to 1 – the switch will light up, and the kettle will heat up.
switching off
12 When the water boils the kettle will switch off and the light will go out.
13 To switch off manually, move the switch to 0.
14 Remove the kettle from the stand before pouring.
15 To avoid the risk of splashing, pour slowly and don’t over-tilt the kettle.
16 Don’t tilt the kettle backwards – water might get on to the control area. If this
happens, let the kettle dry before use – sit it somewhere warm for 12 hours.
17 When you lift the kettle, you may see moisture on the stand. Don’t worry – it’s
the steam used to switch the kettle off automatically, which then condenses and
escapes via vents under the kettle.
using with insufficient water
This will shorten the life of the element.
A boil-dry cut-out will switch the kettle off.
To prevent the kettle cycling on and off, remove the kettle from the stand.
Sit the kettle on the work surface till it’s cold.
Don’t fill the kettle till it’s cold, or it may spit.
care and maintenance
1 Check that the kettle is switched off – move the switch to 0.
2 Unplug the stand, and let the kettle cool down fully.
3 Wipe the kettle, inside and out, with a damp cloth. You may use a little household
detergent, but if you do, rinse well to avoid tainting the water.
4 Keep all connectors and sockets dry.
5 Don’t put the kettle or stand in liquid.
6 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
descale regularly – even in soft water areas
7 Limescale may be white, coloured, even rusty-looking, but it’s normally visible.
8 Phosphate scale isn’t generally visible, but it’s there, even in soft water areas.
9 All scale causes overheating, reduces the kettle’s life, and may trigger the boil-dry
10 So, even with soft water, descale regularly, to help keep your kettle in working order.
11 Use a descaler suitable for plastic products (all kettles have plastic parts).
12 Follow the instructions provided with the descaler, rinse several times, then fill, boil
and discard the water, to ensure no residues are left.
, Products returned under guarantee with faults due to scale will be subject to a
repair charge.
water filter
13 Scale particles suspended in the water may give it a cloudy or greasy appearance.
The filter will prevent these particles going into your drink. If you see deposits on
the filter, clean it, otherwise the performance of your kettle will drop, your drinks
may contain scale, and the water inside the kettle may look cloudy.
cleaning the filter
14 Check your hands are free from soap, hand cream, or anything which might leave a
15 Switch the kettle off, and let it cool.
16 Open the lid.
17 Grip the top of the filter, and pull it gently up and out of the kettle.
18 Rinse the filter under a running tap while brushing with a soft brush.
19 Rinse the kettle, in case scale particles have fallen inside.
20 Lower the filter into the kettle, so that the bottom of the filter rests on the mount
below the spout, and the top sides of the filter are gripped by the mounts on either
side of the kettle.
21 Close and lock the lid.
