IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed including the following:

  • Read all instructions.
  • Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
  • To protect against fire, electric shock, and injury to persons, do not immerse cord, plugs, base, or kettle in water or other liquid.
  • Never leave the appliance unattended when in use. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
  • Unplug from the outlet when not in use, no water in the kettle, fill the water, move the kettle, and before cleaning. Allow to cool before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning the appliance.
  • Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance malfunctions, or has been damaged in any manner. Call our toll-free Customer Assistance Number for examination, repair, or adjustment.
  • Do not use a base unit other than the one supplied. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer may result in fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
  • Do not use outdoors.
  • Do not let the cord hang over the edge of the table or counter, or touch hot surfaces. Always store the excess portion of the power cord in the compartment of the base unit.
  • Electric kettle must be operated on a flat surface. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven, or on the top of other electric appliances.
  • Always attach the plug to the appliance first, then plug the cord into the wall outlet. To disconnect, turn the control off, then remove the plug from the wall outlet.
  • Do not use the appliance for any purpose other than intended use.
  • To avoid circuit overload, do not operate another high-wattage appliance on the same circuit.
  • Do not fill the kettle when positioned on the base. Remove all moisture on the bottom of the body before placing it onto the power base.
  • Be aware of steam being emitted from the spout or lid, especially during refilling. Do not remove the lid during the boiling cycle.
  • Do not use the kettle to heat anything other than water. Do not fill above the ‘’max’’ indication. Do not operate the kettle if water is below minimum marking. If the kettle is overfilled, boiling water may be ejected. The kettle is only to be used with the base unit provided.
  • Do not insert any object into slots or holes of the kettle.
  • Scalding may occur if the lid is removed during the boiling cycles.
  • If the supplied cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent, or a similarly qualified person to avoid hazards.
  • The appliance can be used by children ages 8 years and older and persons with reduced physical, sensory, or mental capabilities or lack the experience and knowledge if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the appliance in a safe way and understand the hazards involved. Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be made by children unless they are older than 8 and supervised.
  • Keep the appliance and its cord out of reach of children less than 8 years old.
  • WARNING: Do not remove the lid while water is boiling
  • WARNING: Position the lid so that steam is directed away from the handle.
  • Do not operate the kettle on an inclined plane.
  • Do not operate the kettle unless the element is fully immersed.
  • Do not move while the kettle is switched on.

ADDITIONAL SAFEGUARDS

DO NOT OPERATE THE APPLIANCE IF THE LINE CORD SHOWS ANY DAMAGE OR IF THE APPLIANCE WORKS INTERMITTENTLY OR STOPS WORKING ENTIRELY.

EXTENSION CORDS

A short power-supply cord is to be provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer detachable power-supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use. If a longer detachable power supply cord or extension cord is used,

  1. The marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, and
  2. The extension cord should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord, and
  3. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be tripped over, snagged, or pulled on unintentionally (especially by children).

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

This appliance must be grounded while in use.

CAUTION: To ensure continued protection against the risk of electric shock, connect to properly grounded outlets only.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

In North American markets the appliance has a plug that looks like Figure A. Kettles sold outside of North America include removable power cords for use with electrical outlets in those markets. DO NOT attempt to insert a power cord into an incompatible outlet. Appliance damage, electrical system damage, or physical harm may result. An adaptor, as shown in Figure B, should be used for connecting a 3-prong grounding plug to a 2-wire receptacle. The grounding tab, which extends from the adaptor, must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded receptacle as shown in Figure C, using a metal screw.

Preparing Coffee

Pour Over Manual Brew Coffee

This is the simplest coffee brewing approach. It allows the individual the most control of saturation of the coffee grounds, and also the most participation by the user. It requires more time than hitting the ON switch of a drip coffee maker but for many, its higher involvement is part of the pleasure of coffee overall.

Brewista-Artisan-BA6VK-Gooseneck-Kettle-fig-16

  1. Grinder
  2. Scale
  3. Paper filter, cloth, or permanent filter
  4. Pour over the filter basket
  5. Drinking cup or carafe
  6. Method for boiling water (Brewista kettle recommended)

Brewing Manual Pour-Over Method

  • Measure about 6 ounces of water for each cup you intend to brew. Place measured water in a kettle and turn on the kettle to bring water to the desired temperature.
  • Grind two tablespoons of beans per cup of coffee.
  • Rinse the filter, dripper, and glass server (or whatever you are brewing into) in hot water to preheat them.
  • Assemble the filter, dripper, and vessel, and dump the ground coffee into the filter.
  • When the water reaches the programmed temperature, remove the kettle from the base. The desired coffee brewing temperature is 205o F, slightly lower than the boiling temperature.
  • Now pour the water into the filter. Stir the coffee just a bit to be sure it all gets saturated with water. A slow, steady pour allows for the best extraction from the grounds.

Tips:

  • You may have to pour two or three times depending on the grind, filter size, and amount of coffee being made.
  • Pre-wetting the coffee grounds a minute before starting to pour over helps extraction.
  • A narrower spout allows better water flow control.
  • Pour-over coffee is usually ground finer than drip coffee maker, but not as fine as espresso.
