Lakeland Brushed Stainless Steel Compact Kettle 5 "Lakeland compact kettle" Mrs WOODWARD 03 July 2012 I am really pleased with this kettle - just the right size. Only one query: this is the first kettle I have had with a concealed element. How can I descale it if the element can't be seen? A note from the team We're pleased you like this kettle. Although the element itself won't need descaling, the inner base and casing around the element may need some care if you live in a hard water area. We hope this helps.
