"3b"Care and Cleaning « Back

• Always unplug base station cord before cleaning.
• Make sure kettle has cooled.
• Clean the exterior surfaces with clean, damp, soft cloth or sponge.
• Never use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads.
• Rinse out kettle and gently wipe interior surfaces with lint-free cloth.
• Never try to operate kettle with the lid open. Always close lid.
• Do not leave standing water in the kettle. Always discard unused water and dry interior
surfaces when not in use.
• It is normal to see the stainless steel cover of the heater plate at the bottom of the kettle
change color after use.
• If your water has high iron content, brownish stains may appear on the heater plate and
can be removed with cloth and mild abrasive cleaner.

Boiling water can leave behind harmless, white calcium deposits inside the kettle and mainly on the stainless steel heater cover.
• Use a commercially available de-calcifying agent or add 1 oz. vinegar, fill to minimum level and cycle.
• If the kettle switches off before water is boiling, it probably needs to be de-calcified.
• Frequency of de-calcifying will depend on hardness of water and number of uses.
