Beautiful and functional

Edith "Edith", Amazon
13 August 2014
  • Summary: I love the good looks, the big size, and the fact that the kettle boils the water for a while until it switches itself off, ensuring that potential germs are killed off. For my tea, I just lift it off just when the water starts to boil.

STILL Boils Water With Gusto After 2 Years!

  • Summary: This electric kettle has been working faithfully multiple times every day without fail for over 2 years now. I truly believe this will last for many years to come.

Expect it to fail in a year.... if you can't wait for it to turn itself off.

  • Summary: The design of the electrical contact in the kettle's base is its weakest link. Inevitably, the problem is made worse if you make it a habit of removing the kettle before it shuts off causing a small electrical arc between the kettle and its base.

Great kettle, apart from kontact.

  • Summary: I love the kettle in every way and my family uses it several times daily. However, our first kettle developed a burning plastic smell after 1 year, which we discovered came from the contact with the base.

Not recommended

  • Summary: This kettle is marketed in Australia as Sunbeam Cafe Series. Mine is two years old and is going in the bin. Yesterday it tripped the RCD -- it's burnt out. Initially I thought it was a great product -- solid, well-made, holds plenty of water, and a silent, quick boil.

Leaked right out of the box.

  • Summary: Thanks goodness for Amazon's easy return policy. Good looking kettle, otherwise unremarkable. The water height window leaked, I returned it and bought a Cuisinart Perfect Temp which I am very happy with.

Leaked right out of the box

  • Summary: How does one review an item that leaks on first use? The leak emanates from the base of the water level indicator window. This flaw is so basic that i would not be surprised if other manufacturing design deficiencies were to be exposed through regular use.

  • Summary: Great kettle, little havier than I expected. If you fill it more than at the maximum mark, it starts leaking from the glass.

Just Not For Me

Erin Bulman, Amazon
9 March 2010
  • Summary: When my beloved Braun electric kettle developed a small leak, I ordered this Krups model. Unfortunately, I had to return it. This kettle was far too heavy, even half filled with water, for my old hands and wrists. It is certainly built to last, and may be suitable for young strong users.
