Is there bpa in the plastic material? Jan 13, 2014
I called the company and asked them if there is BPA in the Electric Kettle and I was told that all of their units have been tested for lead and BPA and there are none. If you would like to call them and ask (like I did), their number is 877-474-1122. Have a nice day.
Yes, flip the lever up (on the handle) to start the heating process. The lever should be illuminated while heating. Once it reaches boiling temperature the lever will flip off (down) and the light will go off. Make sure the lid is snapped closed after filling with water. Hope this was helpful to you.
Where does the little washable spout filter go? I'll be darned if I can figure out where and how to attach it. Feeling a little dumb:) Jan 4, 2013
There is a slot at the pouring spout. One way it will slide in.
What is the minimum amount of water it can heat and still have the element covered (i.e. is 1 cup OK)? Sep 17, 2013
1 cup will just cover the element. Their recommended minimum is about 1.5 cups.
Yes it is. It has the recycle code of 5 under the lid with the ">PP<" identifier below the recycle code.
How do I reattach the small mesh screen on the spout? It detached when I tried to remove some gunk on the screen. Mar 22, 2014
I have never gotten build up on the screen so I have not removed it. I'm sorry I cannot help with this one. Maybe call the company customer service number 1-800-851-8900.
Anyone know if the housing is BPA-free or not? Anyone know if this product is BPA free or not? Sep 4, 2008
BPA is not used in the manufacture of polypropylene, so if that is the only plastic used in this kettle, there is no BPA to be leeched. Polycarbonate is the most common plastic that has been shown to release BPA, as well as some resins that have been used to line cans.
Does the spout have a screen on it? I am worried that with an open spout, ants would get inside. Feb 20, 2014
Yes! And it's removable for cleaning.
Depends on your altitude. If you're at or near sea level, water boils at 212. If you're a few thousand feet higher, you're out of luck without a pressure cooker.
I use tap water, but if you have real hard water you might consider using distilled or purified water.
