How to Prepare the Precision Kettle for Use

Before first use

Before using your Precision Kettle for the first time, wash the kettle and all accessories, including the lid, in warm, soapy water, then rinse with clean water and dry. Fill the
Precision Kettle with water to the “Max” fill line (see example below) and run one cycle at the maximum temperature. To avoid damage, do not fully immerse the Precision Kettle
in water, and do not use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads.


NOTE: The entire Precision Kettle is hand wash only. To avoid damage, do not wash any part of the Precision Kettle, its accessories, or the base with power cord in a dishwasher.

IMPORTANT: Be sure that the vent holes at the top of the kettle are clean and free of obstructions, or the Precision Kettle may overflow.



  1. Place the base with power cord on a flat, sturdy surface and plug it into a 3 prong grounded outlet.
