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

SOURCE: how do I clean the heating elements in my swan tea

Been using this fix for many years:

Get a large jug of the cheapest white vinegar you can find, fill your teapot with it (make sure the pot is cool and do not turn it on!!) and let it just sit overnight. You will notice that the inside of your teapot will be sparkling clean. Vinegar is about 4% acidic and it is the acid that dissolves the scale. After you are done, save the vinegar for use with other items aroung the home like shower heads, just remember that it takes a lot of time in contact with the solution for this to work.

The mineral buildup is Calcium Carbonate, which is just simple water hardness. Unfortunately as water gets hotter, this chemical has more of a tendency to scale up. Just the reverse of what you would think. So keep the tea or coffee pot cool during the soak.

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!

I have an old popcorn maker. The kettle is very rusty. I'm using a carbon cleaner for all of the thick build up of oil, but how do I remove the rust?


Older Kettles that are rusty, will always be rusty. Use the carbon cleaner, and steel wool to remove the rust. But you must season the steel immediately after to stop new rust from forming.

To season the kettle, heat it up to operating temp, with a light coating of oil on it. You want to burn the oil, (creating Carbon) to stop new rust from happening. That is the only way to avoid new rust.

Pot doesn't shut automaticly when starts boiling


I had this problem too, but once I made sure the lid was securely closed, it was able to build up enough pressure inside of the carafe that it flipped the switch to off. So I'd try making sure the lid is snapped closed, which takes a bit more pressure than you'd think.

Be careful about doing this while it's boiling though! Steams a b**ch

Dead cuisinart electric tea kettle


Your tea kettle has a thermal fuse inside that more that likely got over heated, it happens all the time with irons, coffee makers, most small appliances that are electric. you have to take the bottom off to find it and replace it. does it have an indicator lamp?

How to clean the inside of tea pot (scale deposits)?


Vinegar is very good at removing scaly deposits. Heat white/clear vinegar just as you would normally heat the water for your tea. After heating the vinegar, pour out and rinse thoroughly with water. If there are still deposits after this first attempt, use vinegar once again. Once you are satisfied that all the deposits have been removed, heat water in the tea pot 2-3 times to remove any smell or taste from the vinegar (before using for tea).

How do I clean the heating elements in my swan tea kettle. it looks like a mineral build up on the elements that comes off when the element is hot and the minerals fall into my tea water


IF THE BUILD UP OF SCALE IS BAD YOU MAY HAVE TO TREAT SEVERAL TIMES TO CLEAN. VINIGER IS A GOOD CHOICE, JUST FILL ABOVE THE COILS AND LET SIT AND DO THIS AS MANY TIMES AS IT TAKES TO CLEAN THE COILS. ANOTHER GOOD PRODUCT IS CALLED- CLR MOST HOME DEPOTS HANDLE THIS PRODUCT IT STANDS FOR C-CALSIUM / L- LIME / R- RUST
THIS IS A LITTLE STRONGER THEN VINIGER BUT DOES THE SAME THING. BOTH WILL TAKE SEVERAL CLEANINGS
