You can remove it by using baking soda, or use the stain remover available in household hardware shop. There instruction in the box so just follow it.
Also when mineral residue is remove. Use a fitered water for boiling the water, filtered water doesn't stain must compare to tap water.
I hope I help you solve your problem.

Why does the water taste funny after two . Months use


Usually taste change is created by a build-up of something inside the kettle or pot. Try the Baking Soda cleaning method:

  • Pour one cup of baking soda into the kettle.
  • Add water to fill
  • Heat the water and baking soda to boiling
  • Unplug the kettle and allow it to set for at least 10 minutes.
  • With a scrub brush or other scrubber, gently scrub the inside of the kettlepot. Be careful not to burn yourself.
  • Once it's all clean, wash with soap and water normally and rinse really well
That will usually get out any old residue that's affecting the taste

Leakage problem at the bottom? Toastess International Kettle Model: TJK-103...


Leakage problem at the bottom…
Toastess International Kettle
Model: TJK-103 120V, 60 Hz, 1500 W
She was complaining that our kettle was leaking a bit at the bottom.
Warranty is over.
Here is what I did to fix the problem.
Unplug the kettle and empty it completely.
Remove excess residual water inside.
Remove the bottom cover by removing the screws holding it.
Gently remove the plastic ring screwed in place.
Now you will be able to put your hand inside the kettle and push the bottom out, toward the outside of the unit.
Take out the rubber seal and clean it. Ours was full of fine residue…
Gently dry it out and lube it with tiny bit of silicon.
Clean the inside part of the kettle before putting everything back together.
Make sure that you don’t squeeze any wires inside.
With a lot of patience, put everything back in place.
Make sure that the seal is perfectly installed. You can see it looking trough the plastic.
Kettle is now fixed and she is happy! ;-)

Kettle stoped working...


After the warranty was over, our beautiful electric kettle just stopped working.
Toastess International Kettle
Model: TJK-103 120V, 60 Hz, 1500 W
Here is what I did to fix the problem.
Unplug the kettle and empty it completely.
Remove excess residual water inside.
Remove the bottom cover by removing the screws holding it.
Check the wires inside, the ones connected to the heat element.
On our kettle, one of them was completely burned off and disconnected.
So I replaced it with a heavy duty equivalent copper wire and sauder it in place.
Make sure that you do a good job installing and replacing the new copper wire.
Kettle is now fixed and working perfectly.

Leaking jug


A common cause is the calcium, or some other minerals in the water eventually ate through the bottom of the tank. You will need a new tank, or better... A new kettle.

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 kettle suddenly stopped working, it still shows a red light when you go to boil the water but the water does not boil. its only a few months old so what would cause this problem


sounds as if you have a lose wire in the base or else you element has failed. Undo the bottom of the kettle and check all wires are connected to the element. If all the wires are connect i would say your element has blown.

Why does the metal in the bottom of the kettle turn green


Your water may have copper in it (or the heating element). When you boil the water you are left with the residue just like you are left with the lime scale. Vinegar should be able to remove both types of stains.

Good luck!

The water is not clear any more we have white residue in the kettle. We did change the filter and emptied the tank 3 times before insulting the new filters.


I don't believe that any filtration system is capable of removing dissolved calcium from water and that is what causes the white deposits. Water softeners will, but I don't like the idea of dissolved salts in our tap water.

Can kettle be cleaned and continue to be used.


I use a solution of vinegar and water (1:1) and boil it in the kettle, to remove mineral deposits from the metal heating surface (We do the same with the percolating coffee maker and run it through several times)... It seems to take any residual tastes out of the unit and possibly also cleans the plastic parts that it touches (I believe it does).
By the way... WHO thought it was a good idea to heat apple cider in an electric kettle. Sorry but WOW
