Using Your Electric Kettle

BEFORE INITIAL USE: Remove all packaging materials. Fill the kettle to the MAX line and bring it to a boil. When the unit completes the boiling cycle, discard the water – repeat the process 2 to 3 times. This will remove any dust or residue remaining from the manufacturing process.


  1. Remove the unit from the base.
  2. Open the cover by pressing the button near the handle.
  3. Fill the kettle with your desired amount of water. Do not fill above the MAX line.
  4. Close the lid by pressing down gently until it locks (clicks) into place.
  5. Place the kettle on the base, ensuring that it is correctly engaged.
  6. Connect the cord to a power outlet and switch the unit ON; the power indicator lights up.
  7. The kettle will switch off automatically when the water has come to a boil.

The water temperature will be indicated on the thermometer, you can use the water to make tea, coffee, instant noodles, etc. at the desired temperature.


  • After use, unplug and empty unused water.
  • Ensure the kettle is switched off before removing it from the base.
  • Heating can be stopped at any time by operating the switch.
  • As a safety feature, the unit may not start immediately after shutting off. Please allow 15 to 20 seconds for the kettle to cool down before switching on again.
  • If the kettle ever boils dry, please wait 15 minutes for the unit to cool before refilling it with cold water. The safety cut-off will automatically reset during this time.
  • Do not open the lid when in operation. Steam escaping from the spout is hot.
  • This appliance is only suitable for heating water; do not use any other liquids.
  • A minimum of 0.75L of water must be used to prevent overheating.

Cleaning and Maintaining Your Electric Kettle

Unplug the unit before cleaning and allow the unit to cool down.

 Mesh Filter

  • Lime and calcium in hard water may cause a white or colored build-up. The mesh filter will prevent these particles from being poured out of the kettle. To ensure optimum performance the filter should be cleaned periodically.
  • To clean, rinse the filter under running water and brush with a soft brush, such as an old toothbrush.


  • Wipe the exterior of the kettle with a soft cloth. Do not use abrasive scouring pads or cleaning powders as they may scratch the surface.
  • Due to scale build-up, it is best to de-scale your kettle weekly. It is recommended to use Citric Acid for de-scaling. If Citric Acid is not available, you can use the juice of 1 lemon. Fill kettle halfway with Citric Acid/lemon and water mixture. Allow the unit to boil the solution two to three times. Rinse clean and wipe with a soft cloth.


Check the following before calling the customer service number:

  • Is the unit switched to the ON position?
  • Is the plug firmly connected to the outlet?
  • Is the kettle seated properly on the base?
  • Has the kettle been accidentally switched on without water or allowed to boil dry? Please allow the unit to cool down.
  • If the kettle heats but does not boil, please de-scale.
