3.0 out of 5 stars Good for speed but limited lifespan., 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips HD4644/00 White Energy Efficient Kettle, 3000 Watt - 1.7 Litre (Kitchen & Home)
We have owned this kettle for just over three years and I guess that must equate to the average life expectancy of an electric kettle these days, with or without viewing windows and other weakspots, as ours has just sprung a leak. Furthermore it has done so on the kitchen worktop joint, spilling boiling water onto it in sufficient amounts to cause it to lift the laminate. It only just outlived our last kettle but despite being a tad noisy it certainly boiled water quickly. I approve of the plastic viewing window but it does create a weakspot for potential leaks and in practice it's not that difficult to look down into the kettle to see how much water you've put in. If someone could combine the efficiency of this kettle in boiling water and guarantee that it would never leak they'd be on to a winner.
