Bought the red version after seeing black one in a shop. Did not notice the handle is part grey. Nice and light kettle which has a good feel and is well balanced. Boils quite quickly, average for noise. In use the kettle does overboil which is annoying to the point that I switch it off manually, and such a waste of energy which also creates more unwanted steam than necessary. Another minus point is that if you pour too quickly or want to use all the water it is easy for some of the water to go over the top of the spout filter. We tend to fill it through the spout which is fairly easy. The lid has a good grip and goes on and off fairly easily which is good as it does scale up quite quickly, especially on the level indicators. So far we have found it easy to descale as it wipes off the inside without using detergents.
Good kettle spoiled by basic flaws.
Should have been better
