Warning – the risk of burns/scalding

  •  Always place the water kettle on a solid and even surface. Ensure that it cannot slip or be dropped and that the power cord does not hang down.
  •  The kettle becomes hot while in use. Do not move the kettle during operation and do not pull on the mains cord. Only hold/lift the hot kettle by its handle.
  •  Contact with rising steam can cause scalding! Make sure the lid is always firmly closed and do not open it while water is boiling or while pouring water out.
  •  Do not fill the container with less than (0.5 litres) or more than (1.7 litres) of water. If there is not enough water in the kettle, the appliance may overheat.
  •  Be sure that the kettle is switched OFF before taking it off the power base.
  •  The kettle is only to be used with the power base provided.
  •  If the kettle is overfilled, boiling water maybe ejected.
  •  The heating element and surfaces are subject to residual heat after use.

  •  Do not use caustic, aggressive or abrasive cleaning products for cleaning. Keep hard items away from the appliance.
  •  Although the kettle is protected from boiling dry, it must never be operated without water.
  •  If the overheat cut-out switch switches OFF the kettle to prevent overheating and boiling dry, proceed as follows:
    •  Take the kettle from the base.
    •  Allow the kettle to cool down for at least 15 minutes before refilling it with water and replacing the kettle back on the power base.
  •  Only use the kettle with the power stand provided.
  •  Furniture today is often coated with a wide range of varnishes and plastics and is treated with various protective substances. Some of these products may contain substances that react adversely with the rubber feet on the power base, soften them and cause staining on the surface. Therefore, we recommend placing a non-slip mat under the rubber feet of the kettle.
  •  For cleaning, please refer to the CLEANING AND CARE section.

First-time use
IMPORTANT! during the below process DO NOT fill the kettle more than the min (0.5L) mark on the kettle. Filling above the min. mark will cause over boil and spillage out of the spout. To ensure a long service life of the water kettle, proceed as follows before using it for the first time:

  1.  Fill the kettle with water and add vinegar in a ratio of 1:3 (1 part vinegar / 3 parts water). Note: Mix the solution in a separate bowl or container and then fill the kettle up to the Min. (0.5L) mark.
  2.  Bring to a boil (see Boiling water), then pour away.
  3.  Allow the kettle to cool down and then refill it with fresh water, boil the water and then pour it away. To avoid scale deposits, descale the water kettle at regular intervals (after about every 15th use) as described in the section “Descaling”.

DANGER– risk of electric shock

  •  Remove the mains plug from the wall socket before cleaning the kettle.
  •  The power base, plug and mains cord must not come into contact with water or other liquids.
  •  The water container must not be immersed in water.
  •  The product and its parts must not be cleaned in the dishwasher.
    IMPORTANT! Damage to exterior
  •  Do not use caustic, aggressive or abrasive cleaning products for cleaning the kettle exterior.
  •  Remove the mains plug from the socket and let the water kettle cool down completely.
  •  Wipe the base and power cord with a dry cloth.
  •  Wipe the outside of the jug with a slightly moistened cloth.
  •  Pull the sieve out of the spout.
  •  Rinse it under running hot water.
  •  Slide the sieve into the spout as far as it will go.

IMPORTANT! during the below process DO NOT fill the kettle more than the min (0.5L) mark on the kettle. Filling above the min. mark will cause over boil and spillage out of the spout. The kettle must be descaled at regular intervals, especially if the power base is visibly encrusted with limescale. Regular descaling saves energy and increases the service life of the kettle. For ecological reasons, we recommend using a three-to-one (3:1) solution of water and vinegar or citric acid to descale the kettle. Note: Mix the solution in a separate bowl or container and then fill the kettle up to the Min. (0.5L) mark.

  1.  Let the solution soak in the kettle for about an hour, and then bring it to a boil.
  2.  Thoroughly rinse out the kettle with fresh water. Alternatively, you may use commercially available kettle cleaning solutions. Please follow the instructions provided with the cleaning solution.
