Style over substance.
on 17 February 2014
This kettle looks great. It has curves in all the right places and appears to well made.Sadly that is its sole redeeming feature. This is without doubt the worst kettle i have ever owned. Its three months after i purchased and its now broken, when it overboiled and short circicted when i had the audacity to try and fill it with enough water to make seven people a cup of tea.
I wasnt expecting the world when this arrived, just boil water a couple times a day. This is however where this Kettle fails spectacularly at its sole purpose - boiling water. There are three things wrong with this kettle....
1) SLOW. So very.very slow. I put this on in the morning and im halfway through eating my toast by the time this has half heatidly wimpered acoss the line and boiled.
2) LOUD. Its sounds like your stepping into a hurricane. I literally have to midly shout to my partner when its on.
3) SAFTEY. Everytime this boils it spews forth, boiling water, like an erupting super volcano. This can be solved by waiting 30 seconds or so after its boilled and then pouring, But lift this off its stand straight after boiling at your peril. You've been warned.
Overall. If you want something which looks good but fails at everything a Kettle should do, this is for you.
