Below are some reminders and tips to keep your Clyde Kettle looking its best.
- Stovetops have a tendency to collect oils and food particles. Hand wash the kettle after each use, using only warm water or a combination of water and mild, liquid dish soap. Do not use chlorine, bleach, or other chemicals.
- Only use your hands, a soft sponge, or soft nylon bristle brush to clean your kettle. Do not use abrasive scouring pads, steel wool, stiff bristle brushes.
- Let the kettle air dry or towel dry thoroughly.
- If any sign of corrosion is discovered, apply some compounding polish on a soft sponge and rub it in. Rinse thoroughly after cleaning.
- If any sign of water deposits form inside of the kettle, a 50/50 vinegar and water solution works wonders and should remove these. Rinse thoroughly after cleaning.
- Ensure the bottom of the kettle is clean and dry before using.
- Allowing traces of salt or oil to remain in contact with any part of the kettle during use may cause corrosion to develop.
- Never heat the kettle while empty. While all materials are made of stainless steel or heat-resistant nylon, overheating the kettle increases the risk of fire and may melt the nylon parts of the kettle.
