    I bought this kettle in April 2007 from Comet. Within 6 months the lid had failed, and Tefal replaced it with a new kettle. Until recently I had been happy with the new kettle, but suddenly two holes appeared in the viewing window. (Comet wanted me to pay something like £60 for an engineers report before they would do anything). I phoned Tefal to ask if I could have a replacement viewing window, and I would mend the kettle myself. They advised me this was not possible. They then asked me if the kettle had been situated in direct sunlight, and I advised that it was on the kitchen worktop, the kitchen window was basically north facing, so it might get a couple of hours direct sunlight early in the morning. Tefal obviously knew that there was a problem with direct sunlight on the viewing window, and I asked them if they had changed the plastic to obviate it. They advised me that they hadn't, which I think is a disgrace. They also advised me that the kettle was now dangerous to use, and that I should not use it any more. For a company to have a known problem, which is easy to fix by selecting the right grade of plastic,I find totally irresponsible. I suspect that the beancounters have worked out that is cheaper to replace a few kettles for those that complain than to actually do the job right, totally ignoring the inconvenience and frustration that it causes the customer. This is a pity, since I think it is basically a well designed kettle ergonomically and functionally, only ruined by appalling attention to detail and ignoring customer feedback. As a company, they appear to be in denial about problems, never having accepted that the Actifry caught fire either.Read more ›

    We liked the look of this kettle and we liked the concealed element inside. The pop up lid was also an attractive feature. The kettle was noisy but the most disappointing factor was the rust spots inside which appeared after just a few weeks of use. After getting a replacement, the second kettle began to rust around the rim. There didn't seem much point in trying for a third so we chose a different brand.

    This kettle looks rock solid when purchased and boils water quickly if noisily. However, 12 months down the road it is heading for landfill owing to a broken lid catch.

    The lid is sprung at the hinge and it will not close without the catch. This crumbled to bits recently. Tefal's website carries scant customer support and no indication of spares available. An online dealer proved more helpful but I discovered that the entire lid would have to be replaced at half the purchase price of the whole kettle. So, I decided to remove the spring so the lid would drop down naturally. I'm quite technically savvy but, after removing several screws to no effect, couldn't figure out what attached the lid to the kettle body. Thus, out it goes.

    In any case, the kettle was beginning to look scruffy. The decals had partly worn off and the rim of the kettle body had started to rust. Unfortunately, the quality of stainless steel can vary a great deal.

    Great design and build quality, boils quickly and nice to handle. Only downside might be that it's quite heavy when 1.7 litres full so those with weak wrists, elderly or infirm might be better off with a lighter kettle. Also auto switch-off seems a tad slow to react after boiling.
    I understand what others say about it being noisy but hey, so was the Flying Scotsman under full steam! Enjoy.
    10.08.10 After only 20 months a leak developed at the base of one of the water level viewing windows. Although outside the 12 month warranty period I spoke to Tefal Customer Services who immediately offered a replacement from their range of Krupps, Rowenta, Moulinex at a 40% discounted price from that quoted on their website with new 12 month warranty and with free delivery. This price matches the current Amazon price. A month to make up my mind but doubt that I will go for the Tefal again. Good response from Tefal, nevertheless.

    Have bought one two years ago from Argos together with Avanti toaster, really good looking duo. However there was a lot of cheaper products on the market, decided to pay the extra money for a premium product bearing in mind that it will last longer. Unfortunately, just after two years of the warranty period expired I have noticed that the kettle is badly leaking. After closer examination I have noticed that the one out of two clear plastic water windows is totally shattered, discoloured and crumbling out. The kettle was never dropped, have been very moderate used as there is just two of us in the house. The only conclusion I came up with is it was damaged by sunshine (the UV rays), as this side of the kettle was constantly exposed to south orientated kitchen window. Fact, that on the other side of the kettle is no signs of damage at all seems to be backing up my theory. Well... obviously inappropriate, cheap material have been used here...something that customer should not expect at this price tag.

    Well kettles dont really do too much, they boil water and that is about it, this boils water so does its job.

    but why does it cost loads more then?

    well i have had a few kettles over the years which do the very same job, boiling water, however after a couple months lime scale starts to build up, they also always seem to have a lid JUST too small to get your hand in to clean the inside properly.

    this kettle however has a large enough opening to get a large hand in ( ooeerr missus), so if it did require a clean then it would be easy enough to do.

    the element being in a plate is the same as my last kettle which was a cheapo £12 from woolies, however the metal started peeling off the plate and lime scale kept building up leaving a lot of small black bits in the water when it was poured.

    this looks to be decent enough, not ultra amazing, but as i got it for £27 new, it was worth paying the money for.
