Rated 5 out of 5 by Reviewer2013 Excellent, though broken now after five years
This kettle makes it easy to boil the right amount. It boils very very quickly, so it'll often be ready by the time you've got everything ready for your cuppa, if you fill it with just the right amount.
It does get a lot of scale where we are, but that's the water content, not the kettle. It's easier to clean that out than with others I've used.
I've recommended it warmly to others, and now I'm going to buy another one for us.
It has now broken after 5 years. If you know of one that lasts longer then go for it, otherwise, get this one!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Linda70 after 3 years, began leaking
I was very pleased with the design and features eg display window on both sides, easy open lid. However, it over-boiled by up to 30 secs, so I had to catch it before it switched off, to save electricity. Then, after 3 years it started to leak from the bottom. It was out of warranty, but still you expect a kettle to last longer than that - I've had several lasting over 10 years !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clare13 Very good kettle
can do as little or as much water as you need. very easy to lift unlike some of the kettles you get also you can see when the kettle is boiling by the light and got to say even tho even tho guarantee is for 2 years had this one for 6 year so going back for the same kettle again stick to what you know works ;)

Rated 4 out of 5 by AB27 Good while it worked...
Easy to use and boiled quickly, was very happy with it. But it started to develop a leak after about 2 years 4 months use (and therefore outside the warranty period). I now see that there have been lots of complaints of this kind, which seems to indicate a design weakness.

This the second one i have bought,first one leaked thought this was probably bad luck but no this one is worse this must be a known fault.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Janie Quiet, fast boil kettle... but leaks
This kettle was good to start with: good capacity, quiet, fast boil, lightweight, easy to hold, looks smart enough for plastic if you regularly descale it (which is a good idea in any case) and will boil even the smallest amount of water at a time, e.g. if you just need to top up your cup of tea. However, even after looking after it well, it has developed a leak at the bottom which interferes with the electrics in the base and is unsafe to use. I would say that we probably had about 16-18 months trouble free before puddles of water became apparent. It's a shame as it started off so well, but that's not a long enough life for a kettle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yfmay Great Kettle, Looks Good and with 2 Yr Warranty
Been through many kettles over the years - this is by far the best:
- Tea is tasty from it - some kettles with boiled water just don't taste "right"
- Great Designer looks - sits well in the Kitchen
- Perfect Size, not heavy and Handling and Filling-Up is with Ease
- Inside has a flat heating element at base so no horrible "wired tubes" which are common in many kettles.
- Easy to fill with just the right amount of water so good Energy-Wise and No Waste!
After 2 Years of use kettle developed a leak so contacted Customer Services who were very helpful.
Will be buying the same Kettle again without hesitation - Overall an Excellent Kettle - Highly Recommended and with 2 Years Warranty so buy with Confidence.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bevally Great kettle BUT!
Bought this kettle due to the energy saving headline, love the fact you can easily see how much water to add. It boils quickly and quietly. But the downside is that after a while it leaks from the base. Now if i'd had the kettle years & years and made hundreds and hundreds of cups of tea I really wouldn't mind too much and i'd just think, time for a new one! But I really haven't had this one all that long! So the energy saving may have saved me a bit of money but i'm now going to have to spend what I saved, plus more on a replacement. A real shame as I really liked this kettle!
