Question about Cuisinart CJK-17BC Cordless Electric Kettle
After the kettle boils and I pour the water in the cup, black flakes appear. They see to be coming from the flip lid. I removed it and cleaned it, but the plastic bits are still breaking off in to my tea cup. Can I order a new flip lid?
it is very hard to get rid off ass the sediment comes from the tap water untill you boil the water you dont see this sediment and take it for granted that the water is clean but as soon as you put it in a electric kettle this sediment builds up on the element then it brakes off and floats around in the kettle most new kettles have a filter near the spout so when you pour the water out it traps it in the filter then this can be removed and cleaned but the sediment floating in the kettle is hard to get out you can clean the element and descale it and then just keep pouring water in and out of kettle till its all out but it will soon build up again there are two ways to stop sediment one is filter all the water before putting in kettle but this can be slow process so not worth doing or the best sollution is buy a kettle that has a filter by the spout of the kettle and clean this regularly hope this is some help to you............................................

You need to talk to Cuisinart (follow this link to their contact us page http://www.cuisinart.co.uk/contactus.asp?menuId=20)
There is no harm in asking. I have had replacement cooker nobs, bin lids allsorts by just being honest with message and asking nicely.
But if all else fails EBAY =P

the chemical taste of smell from your kettle means that the element in the kettle which provide heat to boiled the water has gone bad due to over heating
this occur when there is shortage of water level in the kettle when the power supply is on
to fix up this problem of smell and chemical taste in your boiled water you will have to make a change of the element (heater)because it has gone bad you can get a replacement of it in the store .
thank you and thanks for using fixya.

Testimonial: "Glad to hear it's not my imagination. On complaining to the retailer they suggested that I have a very delicate palate, or do I have fillings in my teeth!!! I do, but my 85 year old mother sure doesn't. Thanks again."
