Disposing of electrical and electronic appliances at the end-of-life
In everyone’s interests and to actively participate in the collective effort
to protect the environment:
 
Do not discard your products with the household waste.
 
Use return and collection systems available in your area. Some
materials may be recycled or reused.
Instructions For Use
 
Before using for the first time we recommend operating the kettle 2
or 3 times. This will remove any dust or residue remaining from its
manufacture. Fill to the MAX mark fill level (1.7L), bring to the boil and
when boiling has finished and the kettle has switched off, discard the
water and rinse out the inside.
 
Position the kettle on a flat sturdy surface with the spout facing away
from you. Gently lift off the lid, whilst holding the handle.
 
Fill the kettle with the required amount of cold water. The water gauge
is either side of the kettle and is marked with min and max. Please take
care not to exceed the max mark as this may cause spitting from the
spout when boiling.
 
Position the kettle with the spout facing away from you. Replace lid on
kettle.
 
Align the kettle over the power base and gently lower it into position; it
will find its own way and sit firmly on the base.
 
Switch the kettle on by pressing down the power ‘On’ switch at the rear
of the kettle. You will hear a slight click and the switch will illuminate
with a blue LED.
 
The kettle will switch off automatically when it has finished boiling.
However, the kettle can be switched off at any time by simply lifting the
power ‘On’ switch in an upwardly direction. The LED will switch off and
the same click will be heard as switching on.
 
Pour water out slowly. Return kettle to base after pouring. If you wish to
re-boil the water, you must press the power ‘On’ switch again.
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 remove the lid of the kettle when pouring; escaping steam
may scald.
Page: 8

 
Once the kettle is re-located on the power base, it can be switched on
again at any time. If the switch will not stay down it means the control
is still a little warm; this is normal and it will simply re-set itself in a few
seconds when cooled and will be ready to boil again.
N.B If the kettle is accidentally switched on without a sufficient water
level, a boil dry mechanism will automatically switch the kettle off.
Hints & Tips
 
Always use fresh, cold water each time you boil.
N.B. For your safety, always ensure the lid is on properly 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 highly polished 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.
Descaling
 
To get the best performance from your Traditional Kettle, we
recommend descaling it from time to time. Frequency depends on the
hardness of your tap water and how often you use it.
Page: 9
10
 
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.
