Read the instructions and keep them safe. If you pass the kettle on, pass on the instructions too. Remove all packaging, but keep it till you know the kettle works.
important safeguards Follow basic safety precautions, including: 1 This kettle must only be used by or under the supervision of a responsible adult. 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. 4 Don’t use the kettle without the ﬁlter in place – it may spit boiling water – it may not switch oﬀ. 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 Wind excess cable beneath the stand. 10 Unplug the stand when not in use, before moving and before cleaning. Let the kettle cool down before cleaning and storing away. 11 Check the lid is fully 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 it may spit boiling water. 15 Check that the kettle has switched oﬀ automatically, or move the switch to 0, to switch it oﬀ manually, before removing it from its stand. 16 Remove the kettle from its stand before ﬁlling or pouring. 17 Keep the kettle, stand, cable, and plug away from sources of heat. 18 Don’t use the kettle for any purpose other than heating water. 19 Use the kettle only with the stand supplied (and vice versa). 20 This kettle must not be operated by an external timer or remote control system. 21 Don’t operate the kettle if it’s damaged or malfunctions. 22 If the cable is damaged, the kettle must be returned, in order to avoid hazard.
household use only before using for the ﬁrst time 1 Fill to max, boil, discard the water, then rinse it out, to remove manufacturing dust, etc.
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
ﬁlling warning keep clear, steam may escape from the lid. 4 Remove the kettle from the stand. 5 Press and release the lid knob – the lid will spring open. 6 Fill with at least 2 cups of water, but not above max. 7 If you overﬁll, the kettle may spit boiling water. 8 Close the lid, and press down to lock it. 9 Check the lid is closed, or the kettle won’t switch oﬀ when it boils.
switching on 10 Plug the stand into the wall socket. 11 Put the kettle on the stand – take care not to spill. 12 Move the switch to 1. 13 The lights inside the kettle will come on, and the kettle will heat up. 14 The water level windows will change colour as the water temperature rises.
switching oﬀ 15 When the water boils the kettle will switch oﬀ and the lights will go out. 16 To switch oﬀ manually, move the switch to 0. 17 Lifting the kettle oﬀ the stand will also switch the kettle oﬀ. 18 The water level windows will change colour as the water cools.
general 19 Remove the kettle from the stand before pouring. 20 To avoid the risk of splashing, pour slowly and don’t over-tilt the kettle. 21 Don’t tilt the kettle backwards, water might get on to the control area. If this happens, let the kettle dry before use – sit it somewhere warm for 12 hours. 22 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, which then condenses and escapes via vents under the kettle. 23 You may see some discolouration on the ﬂoor of the kettle. Again, don’t worry – it’s due to the bonding of the element to the kettle ﬂoor.
using with insuﬃcient water 24 This will shorten the life of the element. 25 A boil-dry cut-out will switch the kettle oﬀ. 26 To prevent the kettle cycling on and oﬀ, remove the kettle from the stand and let it cool before replacing it on the stand. 27 Don’t ﬁll the kettle till it’s cold, or it may spit.
care and maintenance
1 Check that the kettle is switched oﬀ – move the switch to 0. 2 Unplug the stand from the wall socket, and let the kettle cool before cleaning. 3 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. 4 Keep all connectors dry. 5 Don’t put the kettle or stand in any liquid. 6 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents. 4
descale regularly – even in soft water areas 7 Limescale may be white, coloured, even rusty-looking, but it’s normally visible. 8 Phosphate scale isn’t generally visible, but it’s there, even in soft water areas. 9 All scale causes overheating, reduces the kettle’s life, and may trigger the boil-dry cut-out. 10 So, even with soft water, descale regularly, to help keep your kettle in working order. 11 Use a descaler suitable for plastic products (all kettles have plastic parts). 12 Follow the instructions on 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.
water ﬁlter 13 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 14 Check your hands are free from soap, or anything which might leave a taint. 15 Switch the kettle oﬀ, and let it cool. 16 Open the lid.
release the ﬁlter 17 Empty the kettle, as the ﬁlter will fall into the kettle when you release it. 18 Curl your hand round the top of the rim, above the ﬁlter, to get your ﬁngertips under the tab on top of the ﬁlter. 19 Pull the tab up, to free the bottom hook, then let go – the ﬁlter will fall into the kettle. 20 Turn the kettle upside down, to tip out the ﬁlter. 21 Rinse the ﬁlter under a running tap while brushing with a soft brush. 22 Rinse the kettle, in case scale particles have fallen inside.
replace the ﬁlter 23 Lower the ﬁlter into the kettle, then raise it to engage the top hook. 24 Hold it in position, and press the bottom hook ﬁrmly against the inside of the body, till it clicks into place. 25 Close the lid. 26 Give the kettle a good shake, to check that the ﬁlter is locked in place. warning don’t use the kettle without the ﬁlter in place – it may spit boiling water – it may not switch oﬀ.
