Question about Zojirushi CD-LCC50 Electric Kettle

1 Answer

I just poured water from the electric kettle and discovered LOTS of lime deposits. Scrubbing didn't get all of it. What can I do to clear out the lime (I'm assuming that's what it is - looks like salt). lhurst@gannett.com

Fill it with vinegar and leave to soak overnight/for two nights if really bad.
Any parts which are impossible to fill with vinegar - lids/spouts, soak a cloth or tissue in vinegar and wrap/wedge into....and leave to soak overnight.

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.

The lining of the kettle on the inside bottom is boiling away. What is it made of and is this dangerous?


Stainless Steel doesn't boil away. What you're seeing is the mineral deposits (mostly calcium) left behind from heating the heavy water you're pouring into the kettle. Descale it, pour it out and rinse every month or when it gets bad if you like. These deposits won't hurt you but looks nasty. Another option is to use filtered water instead of tap water. Hope this helps a little...

My Breville kettle does not beep anymore when the desired temperature has been reached.


Might not work, so don't cuss me if it doesn't, but have you tried demineralizing it? Pour it full of white vinegar, let it heat to about 160-180 and then turn it off and let it soak for a couple of hours. The vinegar will dissolve any mineral deposits on or in the heating system. Mineral deposits are the bain of electric water heating systems of all types. Drip coffee makers, 95% of the time, a premature ***** is due to mineral deposits. It also destroys house hot water heaters.

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).
