Starfrit Stainless Steel Electric Kettle 2

BEFORE INITIAL USE
If you are using the kettle for the first time, it is recommended that you clean your kettle beforehand by boiling a full kettle of water twice and then discarding the water.

OPERATION

  1. When filling the kettle, remove it from the power base.
  2. Open the lid by pressing the lid button and fill it with the desired amount of water. Always fill the kettle between the minimum (0.5L) and maximum (1.7L) marks. Too little water will result in the kettle switching off before the water has boiled.
    NOTE:
    Do not fill the water over the maximum level, as water may spill out of the spout when boiling. Ensure that the lid is firmly in place before connecting the power cord to the outlet.
  3. Close the lid. Position the kettle on the power base. Make sure the kettle bottom is resting completely flat on the power base.
  4. Connect the plug to a power outlet. Press the switch downwards and the indicator light will turn on at which point boiling will begin. The kettle will switch off automatically once the water has boiled and the indicator light will turn off. You can shut off the power by pulling the switch up at any moment during boiling.
    NOTE:
    Ensure that the switch is clear of obstructions and the lid is firmly closed. The kettle will not turn on if the switch is constrained or if the lid is left open.
  5. Lift the kettle from the power base and then pour the water.
    NOTE:
    Operate carefully when pouring the water from your kettle as boiling water may result in severe burns. Do not open the lid when the water in the kettle is hot.
  6. The kettle will not re-boil until the switch is pushed down first. Allow to cool for 30 seconds before reopening to boil water. The kettle may be stored on the power base when not in use.

NOTE:
Ensure the power base is turned off when the kettle is not in use.

Boil-dry protection
Should you accidentally allow the kettle to operate without water, the boil-dry protection will automatically switch it off. If this should occur, allow the kettle to cool before filling with cold water and re-boiling.

CLEANING AND CARE

Always disconnect the appliance from the power outlet and leave it to cool down completely before cleaning. Never immerse the kettle or cord in water or allow moisture to contact these parts.

Removal of mineral deposits
Mineral deposits in tap water may cause discoloration in the kettle interior. To remove this build-up, use a non-toxic scale/lime remover and follow its manufacturer’s directions.

Alternatively:

  1. Fill the kettle with 3 cups of white vinegar and the remainder with water and let it sit overnight. Do not boil.
  2. Empty the solution from the kettle. Any stains remaining inside the spout can be removed by wiping it with a damp cloth. Fill the kettle with clean water, bring it to a boil, and then discard the water.
  3. Repeat step 2, then the kettle will be ready to use.

Cleaning external housing
Wipe the external housing with a damp cloth or cleaner.

CAUTION:
Do not use chemical, steel, wooden, or abrasive cleaners to clean the outside of the kettle.

Cleaning the filter
Pull out the scale filter for cleaning. Wash the filter in warm soapy water and rinse or place it in the utensil holder of the dishwasher.

Storage

When not in use or storage, the power cord may be wrapped under the base of the kettle.
