During the last 10 or 12 years I have bought kettles which lasted only a few weeks or months, would only pour a dribble then suddenly a torrent, wouldn't pour at all but just sprayed the contents over the worktop through a 60 degree arc, were unbelievably noisy, impossible to fill post boil without scalding yourself, had a handle you couldn't get a hand around (so not a handle at all), Had a handle which meant when you tried to fill it you simply rinsed the draining board, worktop and floor, were impossible to see the water level in, didn't switch off, switched themselves on and even switched themselves off as soon as you turned your back.
Needless to say that when my wife came home from a shopping trip with one of these Kenwood kettles bought from a local store, which is easy to fill, quiet, quick to boil, pours beatifully, you can easily see how much is in it and has performed faultlessly now for nearly a year I immediately went onto Amazon and bought 2 more!
Note that the clear windows on either side show calibrated markings up to 1.5litres, but the 'max' mark is just above this and is actually 1.6litres, and then there is a 'litres' mark above this which happens to be at 1.7litres.
After a few cleansing boils, as recommended but we gave it six over three days and left the lid open to allow it to breathe, the water has a neutral taste. This is good, and much better than another make of jug kettle we returned because nothing we did could eliminate the awful taste it put into the water.
It pours well without dribbling down the outside, so long as one is prepared to leave the last tiny bit in the kettle. The handle stays cool and has a good ergonomic shape, and the forward tilt does not stress the wrist unduly, and it is what persuaded me to buy this model. This shape is a great improvement on some of our previous jugs which were almost vertical and required modification.
The jug reaches the boil quickly and switches off soon without excessive over-boiling. In common with all flat-plate-heated jug kettles it in noisy when boiling, but we stand it on a coir mar and this prevents the vibration transferring the the worktop and minimises the noise.
The base has proper wiping contacts with a decent thickness of metal, much better than the push contact springs that rapidly burn away and spell the end of other jug kettles we've owned.
The lead can be coiled into the base to minimise the length cluttering the worktop.Read more ›
Recommended if you can live with the fact that it may have a limited lifespan, which I can for the price of it.

Nice looking, but it doesn't switch off when interrupted by pulling from the base, quite often still on without water, so I decided to buy another kettle before burning my home.Published 4 days ago by Patricia
Love the look of this despite being noisier than the kettles we have had in the past.Published 1 month ago by K Bar

I defy you to find a well made kettle for less than £60. This is one of a procession of poor/average quality kettles than I have owned in recent years. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Jamieboi

These kettles are a good price, non-drip spout, no fancy lid mechanism to break, and stay looking good if wiped down regularly.Published 4 months ago by B P Lester
