Bought this about 8 months ago and its my 4th kettle in as many years. I bought it for all its Eco credentials and the see-through thingy. Its a great kettle and what I love the most is that I can now see the limescale build up [sad, yes, but I'm a clean freak] so I'm descaling my kettle more regularly these days. It boils up rather loudly but then suddenly switches off and stays completely silent - also nice. It also boils just enough for a cuppa - something my old kettle struggled to do. So all good - until recently.

Now, it leaks whenever I boil a full kettle [ie 'full' meaning up to the recommended level], the see-through bit has suddenly started to crack all over and, despite my best efforts at cleaning, the stainless steel part below has turned a ghastly yellowy- brown.

I was fed up with my old kettle. It was I think over 16 years old and impossible to see on the filling gauge how much water was in it (a side effect of our highland peaty water!) - so I did a thorough survey of all the so called eco kettles available and eventually chose this one. I do not regret it - it looks fantastic - it can boil a minimum of 200l of water and you can see exactly how much is in the kettle. It pours well unless you try to pour the water out too quickly when the kettle is full, but if you pour more slowly it is fine. It also has a nifty blue light on the on off switch which looks very jazzy. So top marks for Kenwood.

My last kettle came as part of a set with a bin and a cuttlery tray for about a tenner and lasted 7 years. I bought this kettle about a year ago for about £50 and it's leaking water out of the base already. I am constantly having to wipe up pools of water on the kitchen surface.

Trying to speak to Kenwood's customer services is like trying to fight your way through a maze of options without ever getting to a person. Can't believe I'm shopping for a new kettle already! It's a real shame because I love the way it looks and like another reviewer I have de-limescaled it regularly because you can see when it needs doing. Wish I hadn't bothered now though!

I could not be more disappointed with such an expensive kettle. I thought that a product with the Kenwood name would be a quality product, however, after a very short period of time the kettle started to leak when pouring. This is not great when it leaks boiling water usually over the floor near to your feet. Not just a small amount of water either, usually a whole cup full leaks out for every cup full poured, unless you pour so slowly that the water gets cold before it reaches the cup. Extremely disappointed with the look as well, the clear plastic very quickly looks like it has a cracked appearance and the bottom metal internal part is stained yellow/brown even after descaling. I am taking this product back to the purchaser and getting my money back.

Although in a hard water area, we do have a water softener but nevertheless I was amazed a how quickly the polycarbonate body gained lime streaks - something that had never happened with my glass-bodied kettle.

I then realised that there was no automatic cut-off when the kettle was lifted off the base. So, if for instance, I boiled the kettle for water for pasta, lifted it off the base when boiling but before it had switched itself off and then replaced it on the base, it would continue boiling for a few seconds - even with no water in it. Not only dangerous, also hardly defining 'Energy Sense'.

Finally it developed an electrical hum when switched on - not good. After two months I took the kettle back to John Lewis for a full refund.

We've had this kettle for a few months now and if you put more than 2 cups of water in it, it spills water everywhere when pouring. Unless you pour incredibly slowly. This is a real problem with design. You need to keep mopping water up - a real pain. It offsets the nice flat bottom, ability to boil very small amounts of water and quick switch off at boiling point - which we like. Can't afford to change it, but I curse it several times a day.

I was fed up with buying kettles that have level indicators consisting of a plastic ball that inevitably become stuck so that accurate filling requires guesswork, so following the demise of my old kettle, I decided to buy a clear one.

I bought this product less than 3 years ago and although it was initially great, with good looks and the ability to quickly boil just enough for a cup of tea or a very large flask, providing me with everything I wanted from this product, I have recently had concerns about an embarrassing problem it has developed.

The kettle has become incontinent, leaking water all over my worktop and sadly, as the condition has worsened, I had to let it go having concerns about water entering the electric base which it sits upon.

Kenwood, don't ever get into the business of making fishtanks or submarines.
