Care & Maintenance - Cleaning your Kettle

Cleaning

1. Unplug the kettle and allow it to cool before cleaning.


2. Wipe the kettle and base with a soft, damp cloth. Make sure the electric socket on the underside of the kettle is kept dry.


3. Dry all parts after every use.

 

Note: Never immerse kettle or power base in water.

 

Descaling the Kettle

You should descale the kettle at least once a week if you use it frequently. Descaling removes any mineral deposits that have built up inside the kettle. Always descale the kettle before and after storing for long periods of time.

 

1. Unplug the kettle and pour out all water. Make sure the kettle is cool.


2. Squeeze half a lemon into the kettle, or add ½ US cup / 118 mL of distilled vinegar into the kettle.


3. If the kettle has thick scale buildup, scrub the inner walls with a nonscratch scrub sponge.

 

4. Add 2 US cups / 473 mL of water. Boil the mixture.


5. Pour out the mixture, then wipe off any remaining scale with a non-abrasive cloth, sponge, or cleaning brush.


6. Repeat as needed.

 

Note: Do not use steel wool, as this can scratch the kettle.
