How do I prepare my electric electric kettle for use?
Removing the smell and taste
Step 1. Fill the kettle with water up to the indicated maximum point.
Step 2. Turn the kettle on and wait until the water is boiled.
Step 3. Empty the kettle and refill the kettle with water to the indicated maximum point.
Step 4. Repeat the first 3 steps until you've boiled water 3 times, then empty the kettle. The kettle should no longer smell like plastic or metal. If it does, continue with step 5.
Step 5. Pour the kettle half full of water and top up the rest with cleaning vinegar. Turn on the kettle and let the mixture boil.
Step 6. Throw out the water and vinegar mixture and fill the kettle with water once more to the indicated maximum point. Turn the kettle on and let the water boil. After this, the metal or plastic odor should have disappeared from the kettle completely.
