Your kettle is equipped with boil-dry protection. If it starts heating without enough water in the unit, the heater will automatically shut off to avoid damaging the heating element. The lights will flash and the unit will beep to alert you. Once the kettle has cooled down, lift it off the base, then replace it to reset and restart the heating cycle.
Armco's range of kettles are great looking and easy to use. Plus, most kettles include a 360-degree rotating or cordless base for easy serving. The AKT-172WD(B) Electric Kettle features a stainless steel metallic finish with a stay-cool handle, LED lighting and drip-free spout that makes pouring easy.
