How do I prepare my electric electric kettle for use?

Your new kettle is almost here and of course you'll want to use it right away. It might still taste or smell a little like the material it's made of. This isn't harmful to your health, but it's not pleasant either. This is pretty normal and you can easily get rid of it. Here's how you do it.

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.
