1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy it - You'll regret it, 21 Jun 2012
This review is from: Temperature Control Eco Kettle - electronic, saves even more energy
I really doubt that this kettle saves energy. Most appliances use more energy on start up. I have to boil twice to get enough boiled water to fill a teapot for 4 mugs of tea. The temperature controlled options for 80 and 90 degrees take longer than they would to boil the water, because they reach the required temperature by switching on and off three or four times to keep the water from overheating if the heat plate was allowed to get up to full heat. With the reservoir full the kettle is ludicrously heavy. The knob on the top frequently disengages when depressed resulting in leakage of water from the reservoir when the boiled water is poured. The 1600 ml. reservoir will not continue to fill the boiling chamber once the two levels are equalised, so you cannot empty the reservoir - you will need to refill it if you need more than 1350 ml. in total. After boiling the water the base plate is wet. My advice is to get a smart well designed kettle and use a measuring jug to put in the exact amount you want. This Kettle is BIG and HEAVY and UGLY. Don't buy it - You'll regret it. I have allowed one star because it does boil water.
