Summary: Unfortunately I find this kettle a bit bulky so not something to buy if you want something streamline. However the cup gauge on the kettle is useful so you only fill to the required level. It also boils very quietly and quickly obviously depending on he amount of water in there. We bought this kettle on offer and wouldn't have been too happy if we had paid the full price.
Summary: I bought this a few months ago and am really pleased with it. It boils quickly. It's not the most modern looking of kettles but we figured we would rather have a good quality kettle at a good price than one that looked fantastic but didn't work so well.
Summary: i like the handle being so big and rectangle. it is a large capacity kettle and the stainless steel makes it quite weighty in comparison to others. i like the light up blue on/off switch. As it was phillips i thought it would be made in europe but it is chinese. i think it is a robust appliance and has an easy fitting filter. i have only had the kettle a few days but i think it is built to last.
Summary: This kettle is easy to use. The lid lifts right up for easy filling from the tap and the water indicator on both sides is great. I've found that it boils quickly and quietly. The only negative is that despite following the initial rinse and boil instructions the water had a slight metal taste - just had to rinse and boil some more.
