The colour of this kettle is really gorgeous, such a standout magenta and so bright and cheerful in my kitchen. What a change from my previous boring stainless steel set. I'm not sure if any kettle can be considered a thing of beauty but trust me this is as close as it gets :-)
The superb quality of design and finish with this item were immediately apparent in taking it out of the box.
It boils really quickly, has a lit on/off button at base, a push button to open the lid to fill (I hate filling from the spout), a soft grip handle, and a really nice touch is that the fill indicator is based on number of cups and not mls.
Well done kenwood, it is an absolute pleasure to use.
