Read the instructions, keep them safe, pass them on if you pass the kettle on. Remove
all packaging before use.
A IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1 This kettle must only be used by or under the supervision of a responsible adult. Use
and store it out of reach of children.
2 Don’t put the kettle, stand, cable, or plug in any liquid; don’t use the kettle
in a bathroom, near water, or outdoors.
3 Don’t touch hot surfaces. Use the handle and lid handle.
4 Don’t use the kettle without the filter in place – it may spit boiling water
5 Don’t open the lid while the water is heating.
6 Take care when pouring – pour slowly, and don’t over-tilt the kettle.
7 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.
8 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be tripped over or caught.
9 Unplug the stand when not in use, before moving and before cleaning. Let the
kettle cool down before cleaning and storing away.
10 Check the lid is fully closed before switching the kettle on, or it may not switch off.
11 Check the kettle is properly located on the stand before switching on.
12 Don’t switch on unless the element is covered with water.
13 Don’t fill past max, or it may spit boiling water.
14 Remove the kettle from its stand before filling or pouring.
15 Keep the kettle, stand, cable, and plug away from sources of heat.
16 Don’t use the kettle for any purpose other than heating water.
17 Use the kettle only with the stand supplied (and vice versa).
18 This appliance must not be operated by an external timer or remote control system.
19 Don’t use the kettle if it’s damaged or malfunctions.
20 If the cable is damaged, return the kettle, to avoid hazard.
household use only
U BEFORE USING FOR THE FIRST TIME
1 Fill to max, boil, discard the water, then rinse, to remove manufacturing dust, etc.
C POSITIONING
2 Put the stand on a stable, level surface. Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and
can’t be caught or tripped over.
3 Wind excess cable beneath the stand
C FILLING
4 Check that the kettle is switched off – press the right of the switch (0).
5 Remove the kettle from the stand.
6 Grip the lid handle and pull the lid up and back.
7 Fill with at least enough water to cover the element, but don’t fill past max.
8 If you overfill, the kettle may spit boiling water.
9 Close the lid, and press down to lock it.
10 Check the lid is closed, or the kettle won’t switch off when it boils.

C SWITCHING ON

14
Plug the stand into the wall socket (switch the socket on, if it’s switchable.
Put the kettle on the stand – take care not to spill.
Press the left of the switch (1).
The switch will light up, and the kettle will heat up.
C SWITCHING OFF
15 When the water boils, the kettle will switch off and the light will go out.
16 To switch off manually, press the right of the switch (0).
C GENERAL
17 Wait till the kettle has switched off automatically, or switch it off manually, then
remove the kettle from the stand before pouring.
18 To avoid the risk of splashing, pour slowly and don’t over-tilt the kettle.
19 Don’t tilt the kettle backwards, water might get into the control area. If this happens,
let the kettle dry before use – sit it somewhere warm for 12 hours.
20 When you lift the kettle, you may see moisture on the stand. Don’t worry – it’s the
steam used to switch off automatically, which then condenses and escapes via vents
under the kettle.
F USING WITH INSUFFICIENT WATER
21 This will shorten the life of the element.
22 A boil-dry cut-out will switch the kettle off.
23 To prevent the kettle cycling on and off, remove the kettle from the stand.
24 Sit it on the work surface till it’s cold.
25 Don’t fill the kettle till it’s cold, or it may spit.

Switch the kettle off – press the right of the switch (0).
Unplug the stand from the wall socket (switch the socket off first, if it’s switchable).
Leave the kettle to cool down fully before cleaning.
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.
5 Keep all connectors and sockets dry.
6 Don’t put the kettle or stand in any liquid.
7 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
C DESCALE – EVEN IN SOFT WATER AREAS
8 Limescale may be white, coloured, even rusty-looking, but it’s normally visible.
9 Phosphate scale isn’t generally visible, but it’s there, even in soft water areas.
10 All scale causes overheating, reduces the kettle’s life, and may trigger the boil-dry
cut-out.
11 So, even with soft water, descale regularly, to help keep your kettle in working order.
12 Use a descaler suitable for plastic products (all kettles have plastic parts).
13 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.

C WATER FILTER
14 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.
C CLEANING THE FILTER
15 Check your hands are free from soap, or anything which might leave a taint.
16 Switch the kettle off, and let it cool.
17 Open the lid.
C RELEASE THE FILTER
18 Pull the top of the filter back, into the body of the kettle, to pull the filter clear of the
top retaining clips, then lift it out of the kettle.
19 Rinse the filter under a running tap while brushing with a soft brush.
20 Rinse the kettle, in case scale particles have fallen inside.
C REPLACE THE FILTER
21 Put the bottom of the filter into the bottom clip.
22 Put one side into one of the top clips, then press the other side firmly into the other
top clip.
23 Close the lid.
caution don’t use the kettle without the filter in place – it may spit boiling water
