While it should be obvious from the capacity being under a litre, when it arrived I was surprised at how small it actually was. However, the small size is an advantage, because it comes to the boil pretty quickly and if you fill it to capacity, it's just enough to make two cuppas, or provided enough hot water for doing the washing up. Although the handle has a rubber section, depending on your gas ring, this may not be enough to keep the handle cool enough - on one of our rings it's fine, but on another, for some reason, the handle gets very hot.
The handle folds over for storage, and the lid has a small ring so you can lift it easily. The spout is also well designed in that water goes where it's supposed to and doesn't dribble all over the place like some kettles do. We're very happy with this kettle, it does just what it's supposed to!
