Summary: Kettle came in perfect condition well packed and on time. The red colour is outstanding and makes a perfect compliment colour. The only problem I have is filling the kettle. The handle is over the centre of the kettle so it is a touch difficult to to fill. Having said that, if you fill it slowly it is not a problem. a small price to pay for such an attractive kettle!
Summary: Has exactly what I want in a kettle...separate base so you don't have to unplug it to refill and a good handle and a happy colour. Word to the wise: do not pour hot water with the lid off unless you want to scald your hand with steam (did this during the initial heat and rinse).
