Is it safe to use a kettle with limescale?
It is safe to use a kettle with limescale, as limescale is merely the hard, chalky build up deriving from calcium in our water supply. Although not dangerous to your health, a build up of limescale can affect the taste of your tea but there's luckily a quick and natural way to remove it.
What is a variable temperature kettle?
A variable temperature kettle (or a smart kettle) is one that has the ability to heat water to different temperatures other than just boiling point. These are handy for drinks that don't need boiling water, like coffee and some herbal teas.
