2.0 out of 5 stars Lacking form and function, 31 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Alessi Hot It Kettle
I've been a fan of Alessi designed products for years. I've also resisted earlier temptation to buy a kettle, as they never look good on the counter and easy to argue against the absolute need (we're not English, don't love tea, can boil water on the stove). But with a newborn and need to heat a bottle quickly, I decided to go ahead. I had high hopes for this kettle, and perhaps this is why I was so disappointed.
- Very large, it sticks out like a sore thumb in any kitchen
- That fact, coupled with its 1970s diner or conference room hotel coffee pot design..adds insult to injury
- Functionally, it is clunky at best: the lid open/close button works about 30% of the time...and the kettle needs to be perfectly placed on the base, in order for the power to switch on, on command

I had expected the kettle to be sleeker in design (e.g. height okay but perhaps thinner cylinder would have made it sexier and more acceptable) and also easier to use. For the price, I would stick with a more conventional kettle.

On the positive, it does boil water quickly. Just not great to look at, and difficult to operate.

1.0 out of 5 stars Product has changed!, 13 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All of a sudden, the wipes ingredients and composition have changed. No longer biodegradable and grapefruit extract has been replaced by some generic citrus. The biggest issue is that the wipes feel different and act differently when used against baby skin. Much rougher to the touch and does not glide against skin as it used to. Using these are much more difficult than they used to be.
