We know you want to keep your kettle as clean as a whistle, which is why we spent hours playing with our prototypes in the office to find the best ways to clean the surfaces without damaging the materials. Below are some reminders and ideas! We've also attached the full guide that comes with your kettle to this article, just in case.
- Ensure the bottom of the kettle is clean and dry before using
- Allowing traces of salt or oil to remain in contact with any part of the kettle during use may cause corrosion to develop.
- Never heat kettle while empty or not in use. While all materials are made of stainless steel or heat-resistant nylon, overheating the kettle increases the risk of fire and may melt nylon parts of the kettle
- The stove can be an oily, nasty place! Hand wash kettle after each use, using only warm water or a combination of water and dish washing detergent. Do not use chlorine, bleach, or other chemicals. Let kettle air dry or towel dry thoroughly.
- Stubborn stains can typically be removed using isopropyl alcohol
- If any sign of corrosion is discovered, apply some compounding polish on a soft sponge and rub. Rinse thoroughly after cleaning.
- If any sign of water deposits form inside the kettle, a 50/50 vinegar/water solution works wonders and should remove these bits. Rinse thoroughly after cleaning.
As always, please reach out to us if you have any concerns or troubles maintaining a clean kettle!
