off, discard the water and rinse out the inside.

B Setting the Temperature
Achieving the correct water brewing temperature is essential for optimum flavour
extraction of tea and coffee. The quick reference guide below shows the ideal brewing
temperatures for different types of teas and coffees. Brewing temperature for green tea
and black tea vary considerably; as green tea won’t maintain its flavour or therapeutic
properties if the water is too hot and black tea will never reach its peak if the water is
not hot enough.
Water temperature Drinks
85ºC White teas e.g. White Peach, Ginger and Lemon, Green
teas e.g Sencha, Gunpowder and Jasmine and black
instant coffee
90ºC Oolong
95ºC French press/cafetiere coffee
100ºC Black teas e.g. Earl Grey, Ceylon and Darjeeling and
herbal teas e.g. Chamomile, Peppermint and Dandelion
If drinks require a lower temperature than the above, the kettle should be supervised and
switched off once it reaches the desired temperature. The LCD shows the temperature
reading in 5 degree increments.
C Operation
Open the lid by pressing the lid release button located on the top of the handle.
Fill the kettle with the required amount of cold water. The water gauge is at the rear of
the kettle and is marked with min (0.5L) and max (1.7L) and 2 cup and 4 cup markers.
N.B. Take care not to exceed the max mark as this may cause spitting or leaking from
the spout when boiling.
Push the lid closed; you will feel and hear a slight click.
Align the kettle over the powerbase and gently lower it into position, sitting firmly on
the base.
Plug the kettle into the mains; the current water temperature will be shown on the
display (the water temperature will be displayed to the nearest 5 degrees, e.g. 20ºC).
Press the 85ºC button for coffee or green and white tea or the 100ºC button for black
or herbal teas (the selected temperature button will illuminate and the temperature
selected will be shown in the LCD window, flashing continuously until the kettle is
 If you want to manually set the temperature, press the ‘+’ button located on the handle.
This will increase the temperature in 5 degree increments from 85ºC through to 100ºC.
The temperature can only be increased from a starting temperature of 85ºC.
Page: 9
Press the On/Off switch to start boiling; a beep will sound for 1 second to indicate that
heating has started. The back light on the water indicator level will also illuminate.
N.B. If the on/off switch is pressed but the temperature has not been set, the kettle
will default to 100ºC.
When the kettle has reached the selected temperature it will beep 5 times and switch
off. The back light on the water indicator level will also switch off, but the LCD back
light will remain on for 10 minutes. The kettle can be switched off at any time by
pressing the On/Off button located on the handle. When this happens, the LCD will
display the actual water temperature. If the On/Off button is pressed again the LCD will
display 100ºC and it will boil to this temperature.
N.B. The temperature can be changed anytime during the boiling process by pressing
one of the preset temperature options or setting the temperature manually. If the
temperature selected during boiling is lower than the temperature of the water in the
kettle, it will switch off immediately and beep 5 times; the LCD will display the current
water temperature.
N.B. When the unit is not in operation for 1 minute it will switch into ECO stand-by
Once the water has boiled and the kettle has switched off, carefully lift the kettle off
the powerbase and pour the water into a suitable mug or cup.
If the kettle is removed from the powerbase before it automatically switches off and is
then put back on the powerbase it will not continue to boil and will need to be reset.
N.B. A couple of water droplets or condensation may appear on the powerbase, this is
quite normal and not a leak.
N.B. Do not open the lid of the kettle when pouring or during the heating process as
escaping steam may scald.
Page: 10
Hints & Tips
Always use fresh, cold water each time you boil.
N.B. For your safety, always close the lid when the kettle is in use.
If the kettle is accidentally switched on without a sufficient water level, a boil dry
mechanism will automatically switch the kettle off.
For best results, empty the kettle after each use. Do not leave water standing in the
kettle. This is to help prevent build up of hard water limescale.
Cleaning & Maintenance
Always unplug the appliance from the mains outlet before cleaning.
Allow to cool before cleaning the appliance.
Clean the exterior surface of the kettle with a clean damp cloth to preserve its original
high quality finish. Dry and polish with a soft cloth.
Clean the water filter with a soft, clean, damp cloth once a month or as necessary.
Do not use abrasive cleaners or scouring agents of any kind on the interior or exterior
of the kettle.
WARNING! Do not immerse the kettle or power base in water or other liquid. Ensure the
electric kettle socket is kept dry.
To get the best performance from your Cuisinart Multi-Temp Jug Kettle, we recommend
descaling it from time to time. Frequency depends on the hardness of your tap water
and how often you use your kettle.
We suggest use of a kettle descaler in order to dissolve the scale. Simply follow the
manufacturer’s guidelines on the packaging.
Alternatively pour in enough white vinegar to cover the bottom of the kettle by about
2cm. Bring the vinegar to the boil; you may need to repeat this several times with
cooled vinegar to remove the build-up completely. When the kettle is descaled, empty
the kettle and rinse out several times with clean water. Take care not to inhale fumes.
