I have found I have been so impressed and very pleased with my purchase, feeling this excellent kettle, in particular, justified writing a review. It is an outstanding product that, in my opinion, is very aesthetically appealing to the eye. Although a, relatively, recent purchase my distinct impression is that this is a very robust kettle, with hopefully a substantial life-span. The two tone colour is very unusual and complements the kitchen decor.
This is a kettle that boils water most efficiently and when compared to other kettles (its predecessors) it is quiet by comparison. The fact this kettle features a complete handle is a plus, when compared with those that don't. Should the kettle slip from the grip, this I believe will create a better chance of recovery form such and incident, thereby hopefully preventing a very real and greater risk of getting scalded by any water that should be spilled. Whereas, by comparison, those kettles with an "unfinished/open" handle, potentially, pose a far greater risk of injury from a dropped kettle but earnestly believe with this "closed" style of handle, it should prevent such an occurrence.
The button to release the lid is a crisp, clean action more than adequate to raise the lid and with a little bit of gentle, manual encouragement the lid can, actually, be opened more than adequately to accommodate the filling of the kettle. The display panel to show the quantity and fill level is clear and a substantial area, repeated on both sides of the kettle for convenience. How much better this is, than the kettles of such poor design the water level gauge runs in-line with the handle, which obscures the very feature you need! How do they pass the quality standards test? In addition to this there is removable and washable anti-calcification filter to keep the kettle in 'tip-top' condition.
The water outlet, when pouring, is drip-free, thereby preventing any excess water splashing everywhere! The On/Auto-Off switch is illuminated, robust and readily accessible, in addition to having a nice distinct action that leaves you in no doubt that the kettle is 'On'. The cordless base blends well with the body of the kettle, which incorporates a 360 degree swivel base.
The triple safety features, of this kettle, include 2200W concealed heating element, in addition to a safety boil dry & over-heating protection and AutoShut-off. Overall an excellent kettle that, in my estimation, far exceeds the specification of its numerous rivals on many counts.
Time for a well-earned cuppa, I think – Lovely Jubbly!
