The range combines the best cooking traditions with today's technology and is supported by strong domestic guarantees and after sales service.
Serious cooking should be fun and satisfying, not hard work. With Magimix, the most demanding tasks can be accomplished quickly, easily and quietly--perhaps that is why top TV chefs, cookery schools and food writers insist on Magimix.
This Magimix kettle has a fast boil yet quiet concealed element. The illuminated sight gauge makes the water level easy to read and the cool grip handle makes for safe pouring of the water.

1. Looks good, stylish yet utilitarian - does not over do the design
2. Well made: heavy gauge stainless steel, rubber where there should be rubber and a lovely soft opening lid. This really is a quality product worth the extra
3. Easy read filling gauge which lights up with a blue light when on - looks great and really functional
4. Fantastic base with retractable flex facility
Overall: well designed, well made and looks good. I would buy another at the same price.
An expensive mistake
Am now on my 4th replacement kettle.
The 2nd one wouldn't switch on every time; the third leaked water
I am running out of warranty and soon will have no kettle
DO NOT BUY THIS KETTLE
Unfortunately, after a few days of use, lid opening button became dysfunctional. Lid would only open intermittently, regardless of whether kettle contained hot water or not. Problem became more frequent with increased use.
Kettle returned and replacement received. EXACTLY the same problem all over again after only a few days of use. Not good enough for a kettle that costs about £70. Very surprised that a relatively simple mechanism can be so unreliable.
Would definitely NOT recommend this kettle as the lid mechanism is very likely to breakdown at some point, if yours hasn't already!
As a weakly nerd I can say that this kettle, while heavy, doesn't seem overly so. Even when I fill it to nearly full, on those occasions when I need it for cooking, I can still easily lift it to the sink and back. The noise as well, while loud, only lasts for the time it takes to make a brew and is rather reassuring - I like the noise. And, while the kettle's not cool to the touch, I'm amazed the surface is still only mildly hot after having brewed water to boiling point.
I haven't noticed any rusting, but then I've only had it for just over a year, and the people who have noticed this seem to have had it for over two years.
So, it seems if you get a good one, it's one of the best kettles around. If not, be prepared to endure any number of faults. It's your call.
[Follow-up: After doing three years of good service my original Magimix (which this review was of) was replaced. This was due to a replacement limescale filter not fitting correctly. To their credit, Magimix replaced it under the warranty. However, the replacement has many of the faults listed in some of the reviews of this kettle. This leads me to believe that the original Magimix kettles were of higher quality (mine was manufactured in 2007). The replacement kettle's problems include the open lid button not working correctly, the kettle getting hot after boiling (my original only got mildy hot), a leaky spurt and a strange smell inside the kettle which I can't get rid of.
So my original comment about quality control stands - unfortunately I now seem to have a dud one, and my warranty runs out soon. I will not be getting another Magimix as a replacement. (And I've knocked my review down to three stars, in light of this replacement kettle).
