4.0 out of 5 stars Blue Bubbles, 27 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Breville VKJ416 Black Stainless Steel Jug Kettle (Kitchen & Home)
I spent some time looking around as my ancient Moulinex had a bit of a moment and sprung a leak. Good points about this kettle are good soft grip handle so no problems picking it up if your hands are wet; good pouring action through the steel spout; a reasonable size to make 6 mugs for drinks; plus the blue light is fun and you can clearly see how much water is in there, when the water is boiling and the on / off switch is positive action feel to it - so click switch, light comes on and the kettle starts straight away. It's quite nippy at boiling water and is reasonably quiet. Downsides are smallish opening at the top for water. My old Moulinex was the same style but a larger lid so easier to fit under the tap. If you do fill slightly past the max fill it does boil out of the spout and splashes onto the counter. Another reviewer mentions that the kettle stays blue coloured to say that the water is hot, but this doesn't. Once the water has boiled the light goes out. These last couple of points have stopped me from giving this kettle a 5*. Overall I think this is a good purchase, especially with the Amazon reduced price, and looks smart in the kitchen.
