Question about Bodum (5600-01USA) CURL Electric Kettle
How do I get rid of the sediment in my month old 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 have noticed that when you pour the water out of the kettle as soon as it is boiled without letting the water settle first, it creates sediment. I have experimented with this numerous times. Now, I wait a couple of minutes after the water is boiled and has stopped bubbling before I pour.
What I do to remove the sediment is really easy: Fill up the kettle, add about a quarter cup (don't need more) of lemon juice. Boil the water. Wait 2 minutes after water has stopped bubbling. Fill kettle with water. Re-boil. wait 2 minutes after water has stopped bubbling. Pour out, refill. You can drink the next one.
