Consumer Safety Information

This appliance is intended for household use only.
To avoid an electrical circuit overload, do not operate another high
wattage appliance on the same circuit with the kettle.
This appliance is equipped with a grounded- type 3-wire cord (3-prong
plug). This type of plug will only fit into an electrical outlet made for a
3-prong plug. This is a safety feature intended to help reduce the risk
of electrical shock. If the plug should fail to fit contact a qualified
electrician to replace the obsolete outlet. Do not attempt to defeat the
safety purpose of the grounding pin by modifying the plug in any way.
The length of the cord used on this appliance was selected to reduce
the hazards of becoming tangled in, or tripping over a longer cord.
If a longer cord is necessary an approved extension cord may be used.
The electrical rating of the extension cord must be equal to or greater
than the rating of the kettle. Care must be taken to arrange the exten-
sion cord so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop
where it can be pulled on by children or accidentally tripped over.

WARNING: To avoid burns and reduce risk of personal injury, use
extreme caution when carrying kettle containing hot water. Do not
pour in the direction of people or over people.



When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always
be followed, including the following:

nets during use; use protective pad under kettle to prevent damage
to wood finishes.


To avoid circuit overload, do not operate another high wattage

appliance on the same circuit.
