My kettle produces a strong smell of fish as the water comes to a boil. The water, however, tastes normal. What is tha cause of this?

I have tried cleaning the kettle by boiling water and vinegar together but it didn't help.

There's several home remedies you can try: Try 50% "White Vinegar", 50% Hot Water or 2 Denture tablets in warm water over night or Baking soda in warm water. These remove the alkaline, minerals, and nitrates that build up on the surface. There is even a commercial product you can use to clean it. I can't recall the name but look in any supermarket, you should be able to locate it.

SOURCE: smell and taste from water

It must be the kettle causing the problem from what you say. If th e kettle is new the problem should reduce with use but if it is old it will get worse (possibbly due to rubber washers/seals perishing)

SOURCE: Strong metal taste, how do I get rid of it.

Professional chefs face this problem many times over with their stainless steel wares. Fill the coffee pot with water. Add a tbs of bleach. Let set for 2 hours. See if that helps. If it doesn't, please let me know.

How do i clean the inside of illuma kettle


You can use Lime-Away (at Home Depot) or Apple Cider vinegar. It seems to work much better then regular vinegar. In either case let it boil if it has no element inside the water compartment, put a small clean rag inside and use a wooden spoon to clean the heavier areas. Boil it a few times, then dump it, and boil and clean with clean water twice, then put it back in service.

How to clean out your stovetop kettle


I've been using the same kettle on my stove for about a year and I hadn't cleaned it even once until last week.
A while ago I started noticing these weird white chucks that would come out with the water but I just figured that it was because I get a lot of use of out my kettle.
It turns out that the white chunks are actually limescale.
I did some research on it and thankfully limescale is not harmful to ingest. However, it's pretty gross to look at and I certainly wouldn't want to serve a cup of tea to a guest that is filled with strange white flakes.
So I figured out how to clean my kettle with stuff I have at home.
All you need is some regular cooking vinegar to do the descaling for you.
There is no need to buy expensive chemicals that you wouldn't feel safe using on a cooking product anyway.
Start by rinsing out your kettle with warm water.
Then, fill half of it with water and the other half with vinegar.
Place it on your stove and let it come to a rolling boil.
Then, just leave it there over night.
When you wake up in the morning, dump out the water and vinegar solution.
Take a long scrubbing brush and scrub the inside of the kettle to remove whatever limescale is left.
If there is still some caked on, you can repeat the steps over again.
If your kettle is clear of the grime, simply rinse out a number of times with soap to get rid of the vinegar taste/smell.
Voila! Your stovetop kettle is clean and no more unidentified chunks in your tea!

Russell hobbs kettle


You will need to first shock that kettle first bold hot water then remove it and replace with very cold or ice water. The smell like plastic is brought by the Plastic which over heats and somehow weakens to a point of melting thus releasing a smell into your water, Shocking the kettle would help if not then you will need to buy another kettle as that one might not be original or just wasn't tested for regularities and standards.

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.

We have a sunbeam peace and quiet kettle ke7500s it is approx 3months old. When we reboil the water there's always a tainted water taste in the tea and coffee .The taste is so bad we tip out the hot...


As you know friend, some water when it is boiled it really taste bad so I suggest use a water purifier to filter other out dirt, dust, other particles in a water street supply. Sure when you drink the water (not boiled) it doesn't taste bad, that's normal because we can't distinguish it easily. Also try to clean your kettle using baking soda it will eliminate tainted taste.
I hope my advice help you with your problem.

How do you desalazize kettle?


If by desalazize you mean remove the deposits which build up from the minerals in your tap water, the easiest way to do it is with white vinegar (most vinegar will work but white is best for cleaning).
  1. Fill kettle with a mixture of white vinegar and water (about 50/50 but it doesn't have to be exact) until it covers as much of the deposits as possible.
  2. Heat the kettle until the liquid boils
  3. Let the kettle sit with the liquid in it for 3-6 hours
  4. Empty and Rinse
  5. Fill kettle with regular water, boil, and empty to get rid of any lingering vinegar taste.
If the deposits are especially thick, you may need to repeat steps 1-4 before moving on to step 5.
