Be Aware

Boiling water safely

Water and electricity are a dangerous combination; follow these tips to fill and boil your kettle safely

If you're considering buying a new kettle, look out for those that offer boil-dry protection. This device will automatically switch off the kettle if there is not enough water inside. For more advice on what to consider when buying a kettle, read our buyer's guide.

When filling the kettle, open/remove the lid to fill- don't fill via the spout. Make sure the lid is fully closed before switching on and don't open or remove the lid while the kettle is boiling.

Never fill with water above the bottom of the 'MAX' marker on the kettle window. Overfilling could lead to boiling water spilling from the kettle and causing injury.

Take care when lifting the kettle to pour as the body will be hot. Keep the kettle and its power base away from the edges of worktops and where children can reach .
