How to choose a kettle?


How to choose a kettle.There are two main types of kettles, non-electric stove-top and electric models. While the stove-top is the most basic and economical, it takes longer to boil water in this type of kettle. They're versatile though and can be used on a camping or RV stove. On the other hand, because electric kettles bring water to a boiling point faster, they're more energy efficient than the stove-top variety and considered safer to handle. You can also operate an electric kettle away from the cooking range and that means more burners available for cooking a meal.

My kettle wont start. it seems the connection from the base to the kettle is not connecting. if I hold the kettle firmly down it will start but as soon as I take weight off the kettle it stops.


The contacts inside the base are carboned up and possibly misaligned. Take the base apart and clean the contacts with a nail file, check the alignment and correct if needed. Also clean the contacts on the bottom of the kettle. If you still have the same issue, open the base and inset a small piece of cork gasket material under the three contacts so they will not drop down when you put the kettle on top of the base. Don't make the cork pieces too thick or the kettle will not sit flat.

How to clean a kettle thats been cooked dry on the stove. Bottom has been discolored!


It depends on what material the kettle is made of. If it is aluminium you can only really scour it with steel wool and abrasives. It it is stainless steel, there are chemical cleaners that are available. These are acid based and the kettle can be left with the cleaner in it - follow the instructions on the container. The aluminium instructions will also work, but the chemical is less work although a bit of follow-up hand cleaning may be necessary.

I have a dualit 72402 kettle which is not heating,when put on base, switch will stay down and neon lights possibly the element has gone but I cannot unscrew base of kettle to check it,do you sell this tool...


I have a similar problem and spoke to Dualit who say that the element is probably blown. As the unit is sealed into the base it is not repairable and should be scrapped. Not really a solution more a way forward

Can glass kettle be used on glass hot top stove?


No you should not use a glass kettle or glass type pots on a ceran top stove. Always use metal flat bottom kettle and pots. When buying a metal kettle make sure that there is no gap between the bottom of the kettle and the surface of the ceran top. Some metal kettles have an indentation on the bottom. This does not work well on the ceran top.
Hope this helps.

Brokem switch on bodum kettle,


The problem with your bodum kettle is not the switch but the fuse that is in the bottom of the kettle. Because you cannot stop the boiler even when it is empty, the boiler overheat and burn the fuse at the bottom. You must unscrew the 3 screws at the bottom part of the kettle (not the base), then unscrew a nut that retain the fuse in a gain to the base. cut the wires and replace the fuse by a new one (less than 2 dollars on ebay). You should not exceed the temperature of the fuse(172 C) as it will melt your boiler if there is no water. Thats why you have to put a fuse. This helps me resolve my button issue with my bodum kettle.
