I was attracted by the price and the colour, as fed up with the habit of white plastic discolouring and expensive electricals being no more effective than cheaper options. Product arrived very quickly. Perfectly as described, but I was struck by how small it looked next to my old Russell Hobbs 1.3L. I am however a total convert. It is a lovely neat kettle that is plenty big enough to make tea for 4 big mugs which is as much as I need. The base also wastes no room it is a very efficient design. It also seems really quiet so at first I thought it was taking longer to boil, but it just works quietly. I also think the handle design gives a better grip than the more conventional type. Minor critisism is that lid is a little weak hinged but perfectly functional.
