SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY
IMPORTANT – HIGH ALTITUDE LOCATIONS
Water boils at lower temperatures at high altitudes. For every 152
meters (500 feet) above sea level, the boiling point of water will be
0.5°C (1°F) lower than the boiling point of 100°C (212°F) at sea level.
This Kettle has been calibrated to automatically shut-off when water
boils for approximately 30 – 40 seconds, regardless of the requested
temperature.
The temperature settings below the boil temperature of 100°C (212°F)
will not be affected by high altitude.
GROUNDED PLUG
To reduce the risk of electric shock this appliance has a grounded plug
(2 blades and 1 pin). If the plug does not fit fully into the electrical
outlet contact a qualified electrician. Do not modify the plug in any way
or use an adaptor.

Kettle Interior – Descaling
Under normal use, scale build-up will form on the inside of the Kettle
and will coat the stainless steel plate. Scale, which has accumulated
inside the Kettle must be removed. Follow either of the 2 methods
below:
A. For light scale build-up:
Fill the Kettle with 1 L (4 cups) of cold tap water and bring to a
boil. Add 500 ml (2 cups) of white vinegar and let stand overnight.
Discard. Fill the Kettle to the MAX fill line with cold tap water. Bring to
a boil and discard. Repeat.
B. For heavier scale build-up:
Use pure vinegar, boil, and then let stand overnight. Empty out
vinegar and fill the Kettle to the MAX level with fresh water. Bring
water to a boil and discard.
For the heaviest scale build-up use a scale/lime remover and follow
the manufacturer’s instructions.
The Kettle is ready to use.
IMPORTANT:
- The descaling process should be repeated periodically.
- Scale build-up can be reduced by pouring out water after Kettle use
then refilling the Kettle when required.
- Discoloration of the stainless steel heating plate inside the kettle is
normal. This can be easily cleaned by descaling the kettle. Follow
the directions above.

A short supply cord is provided to reduce the hazards of becoming
entangled in or tripping over a long cord. Extension cords may be used
if care is exercised in their use. If an extension cord is used, the marked
electrical rating of the detachable power-supply cord or extension cord
should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance. If
the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a
grounded 3-wire cord. The extension cord should be arranged so that
it will not drape over the counter top or table top, where it can be pulled
on by children or tripped over.
