Re: new kettle breville

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.

Why does the water boiled in this kettle smell and taste chemically? Any boiled in a plastic kettle in my home is fine.


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.

Awful smell and taste to water boiled in a stainless steel kettl

I have the same problem. Noticed it was in two different pots. The comment number one must be correct because I only use VERY high alkaline water to boil my foods. I had a feeling it was my water. So interesting! I will clean it w white vinegar and see if the smell goes away. SAME weird chemical smell- turns your stomach.

Strong metal taste, how do I get rid of it. Coffee tastes terrible with very strong metal taste. I have boiled kettle about 8 times, but am unable to get rid of bad taste.

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.

Automatic switch off not working when water reached boiling.

There is no do it yourself fix for this problem. However, placing a folded cloth on top of the kettle (covering the spout) will cause it to switch off quicker, as it increases the pressure inside the kettle.
