–Cleaning And Care—

DANGER– risk of fatal 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 kettle must not be immersed in water or liquid.
  • The product and its parts must not be cleaned in the dishwasher.

  • Do not use alkaline cleaning agents while cleaning, use a soft cloth and mild detergent.

Cleaning

  1. Remove the supply cord plug from mains power socket and let the water kettle cool down completely.
  2. Wipe off the base and power cord with a dry cloth.
  3. Wipe the outside of the jug with a slightly moistened cloth.
  4. Pull the sieve out of the spout and off for cleaning if necessary.
  5. Rinse it off under running hot water.

Decalcification

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 lime scale. Regular descaling saves energy and increases the service life of the kettle.
For ecological reasons, we recommend using a three-to-one solution of water and vinegar or water and citric acid to descale the kettle.

  • Fill the kettle with water and add vinegar in a ratio of 1:3 (1 part vinegar / 3 parts water).
    Note: Make the mixture in a separate container and then pour into the kettle, not more than the MIN. (0.5L) mark.
  • Let the solution soak in the kettle for about an hour and then bring it to the boil.
  • Thoroughly rinse out the kettle with fresh water.
