I have had one of these for about 6 weeks and am very impressed with it. As the description clearly describes, this is the smaller of the Dualit jug kettle range but is no mini travel item as it has a full power 2kw element for fast boiling and holds 2 pints to the maximum fill mark. This makes it great in the kitchen where it is a handsome, sturdy and compact addition to the worktop. It would also make it unsuitable for places with a very limited power supply such as caravans, hotel rooms, in-car inverters or small camping generators. For that you should look to a model where the element is around 500w.
I have arthritis and initially found the hinged lid to be a little too firm but solved this very easily using the 3 clearly visible tension pips on the inside of the lid. The result is a kettle which has a secure lid and is a joy and ease to fill in-situ. People with arthritis tend to make adaptations to every day tasks and my kettle-filling tip is to leave the appliance on the stand, open the lid then part fill a lightweight plastic jug with the required water:)
In another section I heard someone complain that the directions of Dualit kettles advise that they should not be left with standing water. This is not in the essential safety instructions but is given as advice for people in hard water areas to avoid rapid scale build up. Taken in context the advice is a helpful suggestion, not a dire warning!
Edited To Add Text- It is now 14 months later and I have had not even one minor problem even though the lovely compact kettle is used perhaps 8 or 9 times a day. It has also never shown any sign of scale, have other people found that or is it just our soft water?
Edit - It has now been three years and this kettle remains one of my better acquisitions with not one problem thus far.
