  • When 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. It will need to be reset.

Hints & Tips

  • Always use fresh, cold water each time you boil.
  • As soon as the kettle boils, pour the water into your ceramic pot or cup directly onto the tea. The tea should be allowed to steep for 3 to 5 minutes. The longer it steeps the stronger it is. For iced tea, brew tea double-strength (steep twice as long) and pour over ice. Stir and serve as desired.
  • Do not open the lid of the kettle when pouring or during the heating process as escaping steam may
  • If the kettle is accidentally switched on without a sufficient water level, a boil dry mechanism will automatically switch the kettle off.
  • Empty the kettle after each use. Do not leave water standing in the kettle.

Recommended Temperature

Achieving the correct water brewing temperature is essential for the optimum flavor extraction of tea and coffee.  The quick reference guide below shows the ideal brewing temperatures for different types of teas and coffees.

Brewing temperatures for green tea and black tea vary considerably; as green tea won’t maintain its flavor or therapeutic properties if the water is too hot and black tea will never release its flavour if the water is not hot enough.

If the recommended temperatures don’t appear in your tea/coffee packaging, please refer to the table below:

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


If drinks require a lower temperature than the above, the kettle should be supervised and switched off once it reaches the correct temperature.

N.B. The LCD reads out in 5-degree increments.


  • Always unplug the appliance from the main 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 limit scale build-up, we recommend you use only filtered or low-calcium water.
  • During use, lime deposits will form on the inside of your Cuisinart Multi-Temp Jug Kettle. To get the best performance from the 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 the use of a kettle descaler 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 a 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.


WARNING: Polythene bags over the product or packaging may be dangerous. To avoid the danger of suffocation,  keep out of the reach of babies and children. These bags are not toys.
