Descaling - Electric Kettle

Possible Solutions

Does the Electric Kettle Need to be Descaled?

Calcium deposits may form on the interior metal parts of the Electric Kettle. To get the best performance from the Electric Kettle, clean periodically. The cleaning interval will depend on the hardness of the water put into the Electric Kettle. A commercial descaler is recommended.

If a commercial descaler is not available:

  1. Fill the Electric Kettle with white vinegar to the minimum 0.5 L mark.
  2. Add water to the 1 L mark.
  3. Boil and allow to stand overnight.
  4. Empty the solution from the Electric Kettle. 
  5. Fill the Electric Kettle with water, bring it to a boil, and drain out the water. Repeat this step twice.

The Electric Kettle is now ready to use.
