Return it and get another kettle if you still not happy.
a soak with Bicarbonate of Soda often gets rid of these tastes, if you have some in the cupboard give it a try...

Daft question, but is it your water? We get this unless we run the tap for a couple of seconds before filling.

never had it with my old kettle - or the previous faulty one (when it worked lol)
boil it with the tea bags in the kettle

Both of above.
Also wash with washing up liquid and rinse well to get rid of all suds.
Also if you use a water filter (Brita type) your tea will taste better

always
if it hasnt gone after a few more boils leave salty water in there for a few days :thumbsup:
get a metal one next time
Squeeze a drop of lemon in it, then add water, bring to boil, rinse out.
I know it's not the same situation, but I've found in the past with plastic kettles that the water in them will take on a plasticky taste if it's left in the kettle overnight, so always a good idea to empty it out once you've had your cocoa and are off up the wooden hill :-D
