Looks very good hence one star. Otherwise extremely disappointed with its performance. Badly designed so its base is not touching our ceramic hob. It takes 15 minutes to boil water for one cup of coffee. We had several whistle kettles before this one as we do not like electric ones and none of them taken this long to boil. Only reason we are not returning it is that I cannot waste any more time to pack it, return it and then haggle with seller for a refund of product value and delivery charges. Do not waste your money.
