After much deliberation using Amazon reviews, Which reports I finally decided to buy based on the criteria I was looking for, fast boil, variable temperatures and looks. We're very pleased that we bought this kettle, its boils so fast I'm hardly ready with my coffee and tea before it's ready, and its quiet too. After reading all the reviews I got all worried about a beep when you turn it on and when it finishes a boil, yes it does beep but its one beep on one beep off. Its not going to disturb you unless your on a very short fuse, if so perhaps you shouldn't be drinking coffee and tea.
Overall it looks good, boils fast, easy to fill, and the outside stays cool when its boiled, and it slots in nicely to the wall. Liking it.
