The display normally shows the actual temperature of the inner kettle, but a keypress gives access to display and alter the temperature setpoint. This is set quickly and precisely between 1-120°C. The large arrows change the setting by 10°C, while the small arrows change the setting by 1°C. The heating power is controlled automatically to ensure that the temperature setpoint is achieved.
The control has an integrated water flow meter and water is added to the kettle by setting the required quantity and starting the filling process. Filling stops automatically when the required quantity of water has been added. The required quantity can be set to one decimal place. The remaining quantity is displayed while the water is being added. The user can easily stop the filling process and adjust the required quantity.
Small quantities of water are best added manually. Water is added to the kettle when the key is held down and the quantity added is shown in the display to one decimal place.
As a cheaper option, the water flow meter can be omitted and the quantity of water added calculated from an adjustable constant in the user menu. This works best with a stable water pressure. Alternatively, the time during which water is to be added can be set directly in the display in minutes and seconds.
The water passes through a large drip-free spout on the pillar.
The timer function stops the heating supply and activates an alarm at a set time or after a set period of time. The time is shown in the display and a visual or audible alarm can be connected if desired.The kettle’s tilt function is operated using keys on the control panel and the TiltBack function means that the kettle will automatically return slightly after tilting is stopped. This minimises overrun during emptying and makes pouring easier.
WaterLevelAutomatic ensures that the water level in the kettle’s steam generator is correct. This prevents unnecessary stoppages and also prevents the kettle from boiling dry.
