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 The 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 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 touch hot surfaces. Use the handle.
6 Don’t open the lid while the water is heating.
7 Pour slowly, and don’t over-tilt the kettle.
8 Don’t switch on unless the kettle contains at least 2 cups of water.
9 Don’t fill past the max mark, or it may spit boiling water.
10 Remove the kettle from its stand before filling or pouring.
11 Unplug the stand when not in use, before moving and before
cleaning.
12 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

U BEFORE USING FOR THE FIRST TIME
• Fill to max, boil, discard the water, then rinse, to remove
manufacturing dust, etc.
C positioning
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.
3 Wind excess cable beneath the stand.
C FILLING
4 Remove the kettle from the stand.
5 Press the lid lock to open the lid.
6 Fill with at least 2 cups of water, but don’t fill above max.
7 If you overfill, the kettle may spit boiling water.
8 Close the lid, and press it down, to lock it closed.
9 Check the lid is closed, or the kettle won’t switch off when it boils.
C SWITCHING ON
10 Check that the kettle is switched off – move the switch to 0.
11 Put the kettle on the stand – take care not to spill.
12 Plug the stand into a power socket (switch the socket on, if it’s
switchable).
13 Move the switch to 1 – the light will glow, the kettle will heat up.
C SWITCHING OFF
14 When the water boils, the kettle will switch itself off, and the light
will go out.
15 To switch off manually, move the switch to 0.
C GENERAL
16 Remove the kettle from the stand before pouring.
17 To prevent splashing, pour slowly and don’t over-tilt the kettle.
18 Don’t tilt the kettle backwards – water might get on to the
control area.
19 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 the kettle off
automatically, which then condenses and escapes via vents
under the kettle.
21 Don’t worry about discolouration on the floor of the kettle. It’s
due to the bonding of the element to the kettle floor.
F USING WITH INSUFFICIENT WATER
22 This will shorten the life of the element.
23 A boil-dry cut-out will switch the kettle off.
24 To reset the cut-out, you must remove the kettle from the stand,
and sit it on the work surface till it’s cold.
C CARE AND MAINTENANCE
25 Check that the kettle is switched off – move the switch to 0.
28 Unplug the stand (switch the socket off first, if it’s switchable),
and let the kettle cool down fully.
29 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.
30 Keep the connectors dry.
31 Don’t put the kettle or stand in liquid.
32 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
C DESCALE – EVEN IN SOFT WATER AREAS
33 Limescale may be white, coloured, even rusty-looking, but it’s
normally visible.
34 Phosphate scale isn’t generally visible, but it’s there, even in soft
water areas.
35 All scale causes overheating, reduces the kettle’s life, and may
trigger the boil-dry cut-out.
36 So, even with soft water, descale at least monthly, to help keep
your kettle in working order.
37 Use a descaler suitable for plastic products (all kettles have plastic
parts).
5
38 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
39 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
40 Check your hands are free from soap, hand cream, or anything
which might leave a taint.
41 Switch the kettle off, and let it cool.
42 Open the lid.
43 Push the top of the filter down and back, into the kettle, to
release the hooks on the top of the filter from the rectangular
holes on either side of the spout.
44 Lift the filter out of the kettle, to disengage the bottom hook
from the circular hole at the bottom of the spout.
45 Rinse the filter under a running tap while brushing with a soft
brush.
46 Rinse the kettle, in case scale particles have fallen inside.
47 Lower the filter into the kettle, and engage the bottom hook in
the circular hole at the bottom of the spout.
48 Press the top of the filter gently down and towards you, to force
the hooks on the top of the filter into the rectangular holes on
either side of the spout.
49 Close and lock the lid.
