Maintenance Guide for Electric Kettles
Since it’s a small appliance, many people might overlook the cleaning an electric kettle requires. Cleaning an appliance is an essential part of keeping up its functionality. Your electric kettle can become slow in its process of heating water over time because of scaling. To avoid scaling, follow these steps:
- Fill your kettle in half with water and vinegar or lemon
- Turn the kettle on and let it boil for a while. If your kettle has hard scaling, then make sure the vinegar or lemon mixture is stronger and leave it there for longer
- Then throw the water away and boil normal water in the kettle a few more times. This will remove any aftertaste of vinegar or lemon
- Then rinse it again with cold water and wipe the excess water with a soft cloth
- Leave the lid open to let the kettle air dry
Use this method once a week to keep your kettle from acquiring any scales. Always leave your kettle completely dry after using it and cleaning. If any issues arise with the cable of the kettle or any of the control malfunctions, get it checked and replaced if necessary.
In conclusion, an electric kettle is a small but handy appliance to boil water for your tea, coffee, soup, etc. It gets the job done much faster than a stove or microwave. If you decide to buy one for yourself, keep this list and tips in mind.
