5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 17 Mar 2013
I've tried literally every other cleaner I could get my hands on to sort out my expensive Alessi hob top kettle and I can quite happily report that this actually works - it made light work of the grease and stains and the handy sponge that comes with it was abrasive enough to remove dirt but gentle enough not to scratch - I am very impressed!
