When I try to turn on my kettle the ON/OFF button blinks, but it does not heat the water. Why is that?
The likely culprit is a blown thermal fuse. This is generally caused by running the kettle without water in it. Make sure to only run the kettle with water in it.
Is there any plastic in the kettle?
On the Brewista water kettles there is a silicon ring in the bottom where the temperature probe goes through the base. No plastic touches the water anywhere in the kettle.
I'm only brewing a cup of coffee for myself. Is it safe to heat the kettle with 350ml of water instead of 500ml? With that amount the heater is still covered with water.
If you fill your kettle less than 500ml than the water temperature control will not be as accurate. We depend on a certain volume of water to allow for moving the temperature up and down one degree. Without enough thermal mass to absorb the heat generated with each heating cycle, it is easier to over shoot the set temperature by 1 or 2 degrees.
How long does it take a Brewista water kettle to reach boiling at capacity?
Boiling time is greatly influenced by elevation, but typically a switched kettle will go to boil in under 5 minutes with 1.0L of water. At higher elevations water boils at lower temperatures. Please refer to the "High Altitude Users" graph in the owner’s manual of any Brewista kettle.
