I purchased this kettle 3 months ago for £35.00 (GBP) - But was greatly disappointed 'almost instantly' with the steam escaping from the closed lid seal. It's for that reason alone that I've just purchased another red kettle which is exactly the same colour of red, although the new one is slightly taller & more stylish, however it 'is' still a Breville.
A neighbours mother also purchased the same kettle & too had the same complaint about it as I did.. #Escaping_Steam_From_Lid_Seal!!
Hold on to your money & shop around.

This kettle was purchased two years ago, based on looks more than anything. It turned out to be annoyingly loud, and certainly much louder than my previous kettle (Morphy Richards).
Apart from the noise, the kettle did what it was supposed to do, in a houshold of three.
The element has just blown, exactly 2 years and one month after purchase, (my last kettle lasted not far off 10 years), and a search on Google reveals that replacement elements are not readily available. I'm sure I will find a supplier somewhere, but something as basic as an element should be available from the manufacturer. They do have a "shop" which sells accessories. Very poor.
Wouldn't buy a Breville again, as the kettle body is still in perfectly usable condition. Spare elements for Morphy Richards kettles are easy to find on-line.
Interesting to see another user has had the element blow prematurely.

I bought one too fifteen months ago and the element blew yesterday. With only a twelve month warranted this is very disappointing. I won't buy this brand again.
