Stove top kettles rely on the heat from the hob boiling the water, limescale build up makes the boiling process less efficient wasting energy to reach the boiling point.
Drop one of these into your kettle to scour the inside of the kettle, limescale also gets attracted to the wire ball. Take out of the kettle every month and scunch under a tap to wash off the limescale.fe of the element.
