How to clean and maintain a drip kettle?
It is natural that even when using filtered water, there will be some build up on your kettle at places where the kettle is in contact with water the most, especially the spout and bottom interior. That is why it is important to descale and regularly clean your kettle.
The easiest way to clean your kettle is to fill it with 50/50 white vinegar solution and leave that in for 20-30 minutes. Clean the spout with a small pipe cleaner brush and if any build-up is still visibly stuck to the interior of your kettle, boil the vinegar solution in the kettle.
Afterwards, empty the kettle, wash with clean water and dry with a soft cloth. Before using for your next brewing, boil a full kettle of clean water to get rid of any vinegar residue or smell.
Remember that a slight abrasion on the bottom of your kettle is normal with regular use. It is caused by heat and friction.
