Smells and Odors - Electric Kettle

Possible Solution

Does the kettle need to be cleaned?

To get the best performance from your Electric Kettle, decalcification will be necessary. Calcium deposits may form on the interior metal parts of the Electric Kettle. The cleaning interval will depend on the hardness of the water you put in the Electric Kettle.

How to clean

  1. Fill the Electric Kettle with 1 cup (.25 L) white vinegar. Add 3 cups (.75 L) water. Boil and allow to stand overnight before emptying the solution.
  2. Fill the Electric Kettle with water, bring to a boil, and drain the water. Repeat this step twice. The Electric Kettle is now ready to use.
