Question about Cuisinart CJK-17BC Cordless Electric Kettle

Open Question

Black plastic flakes in the water.

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?

SOURCE: sediment in my electric tea kettle

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............................................

I could be that you have some debris in the hole. Try running a pipe cleaner though it a few times and see if it helps.

SOURCE: Why does the water boiled in this kettle smell and

hello,

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.

Why does the water taste funny after two . Months use


Usually taste change is created by a build-up of something inside the kettle or pot. Try the Baking Soda cleaning method:

  • Pour one cup of baking soda into the kettle.
  • Add water to fill
  • Heat the water and baking soda to boiling
  • Unplug the kettle and allow it to set for at least 10 minutes.
  • With a scrub brush or other scrubber, gently scrub the inside of the kettlepot. Be careful not to burn yourself.
  • Once it's all clean, wash with soap and water normally and rinse really well
That will usually get out any old residue that's affecting the taste

How to clean my Braun electric kettle


Hi, follow the instruction below to clean it up...

Unplug the tea kettle from the wall outlet, and detach the plug from the kettle.

Pour 1/4 cup white vinegar into the kettle, and fill the kettle halfway with hot water.

Agitate the kettle so the vinegar mixture hits the sides of the kettle walls, and let the water sit for 20 minutes.

Discard the vinegar water, and scrub the interior of the kettle gently with a nylon sponge.

Rinse the kettle with hot water, and repeat as needed until all buildup is removed. Let the kettle air-dry before inserting the cord back into the kettle.

Easy. Pour in a cup or two of white vinegar, add water to over the line of calcification, and plug it in! After the pot boils, pour out the solution and rinse with clear water.

What solution will work to clean out the sediment that settles in non-electric teapot? We gave very hard water in our area and the pot if full of white flakes after the water boils.


For that model, instead of the usual vinegar, the solution you need is 1tbsp of cream of tartar for every 2 cups of water. Cream of tartar is normally a spice, so it would more likely be found in the spices section of the grocery store rather than the cleaners section.

Can kettle be cleaned and continue to be used.


I use a solution of vinegar and water (1:1) and boil it in the kettle, to remove mineral deposits from the metal heating surface (We do the same with the percolating coffee maker and run it through several times)... It seems to take any residual tastes out of the unit and possibly also cleans the plastic parts that it touches (I believe it does).
By the way... WHO thought it was a good idea to heat apple cider in an electric kettle. Sorry but WOW
