Read the instructions and keep them safe. If you pass the kettle on to anyone else, you
should also pass on the instructions too.
Remove all packaging before using the kettle, but keep it till you’re satisfied that the
kettle is working.
important safeguards
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed,
including the following:
1 This kettle must only be used by or under the direct supervision of a responsible
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 knob.
4 Don’t open the lid while the water is heating.
5 Take care when pouring – pour slowly, and don’t over-tilt the kettle.
6 Don’t connect this kettle to an external timer or remote control system.
7 Water can remain hot for a considerable time after boiling and can present a scald
hazard. Keep the kettle, the stand, and the cable away from the edge of worktops
and out of the 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 Don’t use the kettle without the filter in place – it may spit boiling water.
11 Check the lid is properly closed before switching the kettle on, otherwise it may not
switch off.
12 Check the kettle is properly located on the stand before switching on.
13 Don’t switch on unless the kettle contains at least 2 cups of water.
14 Don’t fill past max, or the kettle may spit boiling water.
15 Remove the kettle from its stand before filling or pouring.
16 Keep the kettle, stand, cable, and plug away from sources of heat.
17 Don’t use the kettle for any purpose other than heating water.
18 Use the kettle only with the stand supplied (and vice versa).
19 Don’t operate the kettle if it’s damaged or malfunctions. If the cable or stand is
damaged, replace the stand, in order to avoid hazard.
household use only
before using for the first time
Remove all packaging from the kettle and its stand. Before using the kettle for the first
time, or if it has been out of use for a long time, fill to max, boil, discard the water, then
rinse. Do this three times to remove manufacturing dust, etc.
1 Put the stand on a stable, level surface. Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and
can’t be caught or tripped over.
warning keep clear, steam may escape from the lid.
Check that the switch is off 0 – flip the switch up.
Remove the kettle from the stand.
Use the lid knob to lift off the lid.
Fill the kettle with at least 2 cups of water, but don’t fill above max.
Don’t overfill the kettle. If the kettle is overfilled, there is a risk it may spit boiling
7 Replace the lid.

switching on
Check that the switch is off 0 – flip the switch up.
Plug the stand into the wall socket. If necessary, switch the socket on.
Gently position the kettle on the stand – take care not to spill any water.
Press the switch down to turn the kettle on 1. The lights will come on, and the kettle

switching off
13 When the water has boiled, the kettle will switch off automatically, the switch will
return to the off 0 position and the lights will go out.
14 The kettle can be switched off at any time before the water boils by flipping the
switch up to 0.
When you lift the kettle from the stand, you may see moisture on the surface of
the stand. This is the steam used to switch the kettle off automatically, which then
condenses and is allowed to escape via vents in the underside of the kettle. This is
normal, and should be ignored.
You may notice discolouration of the coating on the floor of the kettle. This occurs
during bonding of the element to the floor. It’s unavoidable, harmless, and should be
Remove the kettle from the stand before pouring.
When filling or carrying the kettle, don’t tilt it backwards, as this may allow water to
pass through the steam aperture on to the control area. Should this occur, let the kettle
dry before use – sit it somewhere warm for 12 hours.
To avoid the risk of splashing, pour slowly and don’t over-tilt the kettle.
insufficient water
Don’t switch the kettle on unless it contains 2 cups of water. Misuse of this kind will
shorten the life of the element.
If the kettle is accidentally switched on when it doesn’t contain sufficient water, a boildry device will automatically switch it off. Remove it from the stand and let it cool down
fully before filling, as the element will be hot and spitting may occur.
care and maintenance
Switch the kettle off 0 – flip the switch up, unplug the stand from the wall socket, and
let the kettle cool down fully before cleaning. Wipe the kettle, inside and out, with a
damp cloth. If necessary, you may use a little household detergent.
If you use detergent inside the kettle, rinse thoroughly afterwards to remove all trace of
detergent, to avoid tainting the water.
Keep all connectors and sockets dry.
Don’t put the kettle, stand, cable, or plug in any liquid.
Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
descale regularly – even in soft water areas
Limescale may be white, coloured, even rusty-looking, but it’s normally visible.
Phosphate scale isn’t generally visible, but it’s there, even in soft water areas.
All scale causes overheating, reduces the kettle’s life, and may trigger the boil-dry cutout.
So, even with soft water, descale at least monthly, to help keep your kettle in working
Use a descaler suitable for plastic products (all kettles have plastic parts). Follow the
instructions on the descaler, rinse several times, then fill, boil and discard the water, to
ensure no residues are left.
to minimise scale build-up
Empty the kettle after each use - never leave water in the kettle overnight.
If the water in your area is particularly hard, you may consider the use of filtered water
instead of ordinary tap water.
water filter
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
Switch the kettle off 0 – flip the switch up, unplug the stand from the wall socket, and
let the kettle cool down fully before cleaning.
Check your hands are free from soap, or anything which might leave a taint.
release the filter
Use the lid knob to open the lid.
Push the filter handle down to release the filter, then lift it out of the kettle.
Brush it with a soft brush, under a running tap.
Rinse the kettle, in case any scale particles have fallen inside.
replace the filter
Put the spike into the holder, then push the filter towards the spout till the tabs click
into the holes.
Replace the lid.
Press the lid down to make sure it’s properly closed.
warning Don’t use the kettle without the filter in place – it may spit boiling water.
