Rated 3 out of 5 by Jono45 Disappointing
I read loads of reviews that said this was great.
The 1st one had a fault so was returned.
The 2nd works & looks ok but .... Although washed out / cleaned still makes the water taste unpleasant.
I am persevering hoping the plastic taste will fade

This is my second Phillips kettle (same model) and I think it's great. The old one started leaking after 4.5 years so not bad. All of them leak anyway. It looks great, very functional with double clear water level indicator. Highly recommended! Good offer at Asda, it was the cheapest I could find online.

It almost impossible to see the water levels in the kettle. The viewing panels are dark grey so, with clear water, nothing can be seen. Needs clear panels with dark writing on.

Finally I've got a kettle where I can boil 1 cup of water. Thus saving water and energy. It's lightweight when you pick it up to fill - so helpful for those with reduced strength in their limbs. Kettle boils very quietly but it boils quickly. Very pleased with my purchase of Philips Eco kettle.

I like everything about this Kettle. Ease of use ,and cup markings encourage you to boil the corrrect amount of water. Economical to use ***BUT ** now on my third one and it , like the previous two has started leaking after approx one years use. So looks like I need a different make.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HollyH This kettle looks smart, is quick to boil and has a clear water indicator
I am extremely happy with my kettle as it not only looks good but has all the features needed for ease of use. It is fast boiling, pours cleanly and the water indicator is useful for ensuring you do not have to boil more than is necessary. I would certainly recommend it.

I have purchased three. The first was excellent for 3 years until it started leaking. The second one didn't work at all ( cut out before water was boiling). Third one works well but the "viewing panel" is opaque!

Rated 1 out of 5 by TraceyAnn222 Plain boiled water tastes of plastic.
Most people won't notice any problem with this kettle until they taste just plain boiled water. Then it tastes of plastic! Makes me wonder what I have been digesting since I bought mine last June! I am going to stick to stainless steel or glass kettles in future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cardaholic Just what I wanted
Looks good, comfy to use, and boils fast. Just what I wanted. However, it started leaking after about 18months (hence only 4 stars) but as it was still under guarantee Phillips replaced it - no trouble - great customer service. No problems (so far) with new one.

I had this kettle for over two year. It looks lovely, easy to use and energy efficient. Only problem I had was a leak from the kettle, but after contacting the service centre it was promptly replaced (even though I didn't have a copy of the warranty at hand).

Kettle looks good and boils quickly. Not noisy but after a week of use water developed a distinct metallic/plastic type taste. This affected tea more than coffee. Hopefully this will pass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by franet Works efficiently, easy to see water level, quick boil and pleasing design.
After using metal bodied kettles for many years I decided to try a plastic version. Much to my surprise it has out-performed all previous models. My wife likes the lightweight handling and ease of use, wished we had one sooner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BARON1 This product is efficient and convenient to use
It was bought to replace a 11 year old Philips Model, which unfortunately sustained accidental damage, causing it to leak.
This one boils much faster as it has a higher wattage, and the shape is a bit more stylish than the previous model.

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.

Claims energy can be saved by filling to one cup and not filling kettle.
This is common sense. No one will fill kettle to more than number of cups needed. This applies to any make of kettle so if one does this they are all energy saving

This is an attractive and well designed product, which sits easily in its base, and really will boil as little as a single cup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KB42 Quick to boil
This kettle boils quickly and is, unlike some kettles quiet while it is heating up. It also only needs one cup of water in it, if that is all that is required, added to it’s own light weight, makes it easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by alanj This product is a all round winner
This kettle is great if you are right or left handed as the level indecator is on both sides, also easy to descale.
This is the second one i have had and would not buy anything else.

Got sick of anodized expensive stainless steel kettles and wanted a robust simple kettle with an easy to read level indicator (one cup boil ability is an excellent bonus)...this one fits the bill....hope it lasts!

Rated 1 out of 5 by IanDC Leak problem
In common with many other users, I found that this kettle started leaking into the base after a couple of years - much too short a lifespan. But far worse is Philips refusal to remedy the fault. Not recommended.

Don't be fooled by its nice looks it will start to leak sooner or later. Due to poor design scale builds up in the joint between walls and bottom plate and bursts it. No idea how Philips could get it so wrong.

I like this kettle a lot. It boils quickly, its a good design but it has floors. It leaks badly unless completely emptied after use.
Very dissapointed that I have to buy another kettle because of this

basic kettle at value for money costs, much cheaper than at electrical outlets on retail parks. Boils quickly and does what you want it to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jackieg Good for saving!
Great that you can boil water for a single cup, saves time and energy as you can boil exactly what you need rather than constantly heating and re-heating more water than you need.

Can't get very excited about a kettle - but it does the job well. I'd prefer it to be silent - it does seem a bit noisy. Nice clean lines inside - no nasty crevices for the gunge to hide.

This is the ideal size for two people in a relatively small kitchen. It heats up swiftly, is very easy to fill and compliments our other kitchen appliances

Rated 5 out of 5 by Victor A first class product,can't fault it in any way.
It was the ability to boil small quantities with a guide without having to guess,ie 1 Cup etc. which attracted me in the first place and I have not been disappointed.An excellent product.
