Save energy, only boil what you need
Filling your kettle completely to make just one or two cups of
tea wastes energy. This Philips kettle has a unique 1 cup indicator
so you can easily see exactly how much water you need. By only
boiling the cup of water you need you could save up to 66%
energy, that’s enough to earn your kettle back in a year!*
If everyone boiled only the amount of water they need, we could
light the streets of the UK for 7 months! (DEFRA).
* boiling 1 cup vs. 1 litre, 7 times a day
Did you know this about your kettle?
Boiling some water in the electric kettle to wash a few dishes is more
energy-efcient than lling the sink with hot tap water.
Boiling water in the electric kettle is more efcient than boiling water
on the stove.
Boiling cold water in the kettle takes less energy than boiling hot
water, despite the longer boiling time. You save the energy that would
otherwise be used to heat up water in your hot water system.
Energy saving tips and tricks
Switch to energy-efcient light bulbs
Energy-efcient light bulbs last up to 10 times longer than standard ones and
use up to 80% less energy at the same time.
Do not leave appliances on standby
5% of your power bill is used to run electrical appliances on standby. If a LED
light is on, your appliance is using energy.
Switch off lights in empty rooms
You could cut your lighting costs by as much as 15% just by making sure you
turn off lights in rooms and corridors that are not in use.
Don’t turn up the heating unless you really need to
Unless it’s just too cold for comfort, try to keep your thermostat at 19°C.
Your heating costs go up by 8% each time you increase the temperature by
just one degree
Jazz up your hot water tank with a jacket
Insulate your hot water tank with a jacket. It only costs a few pounds and,
with all the heat it traps in, it pays for itself within months. Fit one that is
at least 75mm (3”) thick and you save a great deal of energy. If every UK
household would be tted with an adequate tank-jacket tomorrow, we
would save over £89 million in energy costs every year.
Look for the logo
When you purchase new appliances, always look for the Energy Saving
Recommended logo. Energy Saving Recommended appliances are the most
efcient in their category and could save you up to £37 a year.
Keep twice as warm with double glazing
Double glazing cuts heat loss through windows by 50% and acts as an
insulator, in the same way as loft and wall cavity insulation, making your
heating more energy-efcient.

The kettle starts heating up.
The kettle switches off automatically (‘click’) when the water boils.
The power-on light goes out automatically when the kettle switches
Note: You can interrupt the boiling process at any time by pushing the on/off
switch upwards.
Never use scouring pads, abrasive cleaning agents or aggressive liquids
such as petrol or acetone to clean the appliance.
Never immerse the kettle or its base in water.
1 Unplug the appliance.
2 Clean the outside of the kettle with a soft cloth moistened with
warm water and some mild cleaning agent.
3 Clean the scale lter regularly.
Scale is not harmful to your health but it may give your drink a powdery
taste. The scale lter prevents scale particles from ending up in your
drink. Clean the scale lter in one of the following ways:
Take the scale lter out of the kettle and gently clean it with a soft nylon
brush under a running tap. (Fig. 6)
Leave the scale lter in the kettle when you descale the whole
Clean the scale lter in the dishwasher.
Regular descaling prolongs the life of the kettle.
In case of normal use (up to 5 times a day), we recommend the following
descaling frequency:
Once every 3 months for soft water areas (up to 18dH).
Once every month for hard water areas (more than 18dH).
1 Fill the kettle with approx. 900ml water.
2 Switch on the kettle.
3 After the kettle switches off, add white vinegar (8% acetic acid) to the
MAX indication.
4 Leave the solution in the kettle overnight.
5 Empty the kettle and rinse the inside thoroughly.
6 Fill the kettle with fresh water and boil the water.
7 Empty the kettle and rinse it with fresh water again.
Repeat the procedure if there is still some scale in the kettle.
Tip: You can also use an appropriate descaler. In that case, follow the
instructions on the package of the descaler.
1 To store the mains cord, wind it round the reel in the base (Fig. 2).
If the kettle, the base or the mains cord of the appliance is damaged, take
the base or the kettle to a service centre authorised by Philips for repair
or replacement of the cord to avoid a hazard.
You can purchase a new lter (order number 4222 459 45327) at your
Philips dealer or at a Philips service centre.
Do not throw away the appliance with the normal household waste
at the end of its life, but hand it in at an ofcial collection point for
recycling. By doing this, you help to preserve the environment (Fig. 7).

Is it efficient to fill a kettle with hot water from the faucet? Verified

No. To get warm water to the faucet it is often needed to let cold water out first, which will be wasted. Also, the pipes will fill the same amount of hot water which will not be used and will cool, which leads to energy loss. Therefor it is better to fill a kettle with cold water.

No. When boiling more than the maximum amount of water, the kettle might overflow. This might result in possibly dangerous situations.
