Having spent a few weeks weighing up various reviews on kettles I finally decided to take the plunge and spend some extra pennies on what hopefully will prove to be worthwhile purchase. Yes it does have its share of negative reviews,and as is the norm, the negative reviews normally hit the press first!(And quite rightly too!).

So OK,this is up there with the expensive ones and not everyone will want to spend this amount on a cup of tea (or coffee for that matter), but this looks like it should be a "get what you pay for" item. As of yet I can't speak from the longevity value of its worth, but initial usage is favourable.(Owned it for a month so far).

The kettle is double lined and therefore is a tad heavier than average,that said,it is metal on the inside as well as the outside (unlike some other popular models).
The lid opens easily from a button on the upper part of the handle(you do have to close it manually,a soft pad ensures you don't burn your fingers),alternatively you can fill it through the spout - tap size permitting!
The fill gauge,although not in "cup" measures,does increase in increments of 500ml(2x cups = appx 500ml),with intermediate markings inbetween,and it possible,if needed, only to boil 250ml. The gauge does light up when you press the on button, and although condensation does tend to form in the plastic gauge, it doesn't obliterate the markings.

Noise level - all I'll say is that this one of the quietist we've had, it actually goes quieter as it reaches boiling point.(Example boiling times:250ml=30" / 500ml=1'20" / 1.8l=3'32").

The brushed steel isn't a finger print collector and wipes down easily.
It also came with a 3year guarantee so I hope it will outlive its warranty and exceed expectations!

Hmmm, I have not even bothered to check the other reviews, but I'll wager it goes something like this....
I bought the kettle 18 months ago from a store in the UK and returned to my home in Gibraltar (this makes the process of returning gear a bit of a pain...)
After only a couple of months the inner plastic insert (innner-side of handle) kept 'popping out'. After an age of messing I managed to get it semi relocated, but never right - it popped out on regular occassions. After about six months the on/off switch malfunctioned - another regular fiddle to sort out. It raised concerns about electric shock with exposed bits and bobs, but I'm still here.
Pos points - it did boil very quickly, looked elegant and I loved the stay warm factor with the insulated aspect to the kettle. I use the word 'did' in the last sentence, that's because after returning home from working away for the last couple of months, the missus was making me a cuppa, boiling water in a pan! on the stove! - in her firey (a usually placid person) words - Sean I just saw red mist one day and it got launched into the bin.
Magimix - I'm afraid at this price point, just NOT acceptable. Readers, you have been warned!

I brought my kettle approximately 18 months ago and was very pleased with it.

The kettle body is very sturdy and all the metal parts are the same. About a month ago the lid would not remain closed and kept on partially opening and therefore the kettle would not switch off when the water was boiling.

I decided to strip the kettle down to see what was happening and discovered the hinge mechanism in the lid is mounted on metal, has a nice strong centre pin made of metal and very weak and brittle plastic holding it all together, it was these plastic components that had broken.

I decided to fully dismantle the kettle and discovered that all the metal parts are very robust and perfectly fit for purpose but all the plastic parts are flimsy and brittle. As this is supposedly a premium product I am very disappointed as what would otherwise be a fantastic product has been ruined by a few cheap shoddy parts.

My recommendation is avoid this product.

This is an expensive piece of kit, and it certainly looks well made. However, I have to conclude that it isn't. The first one I bought died after about 2 years. They sent a replacement under guarantee, which also died, this time in 18 months. By that time the original guarantee had expired.

Both times it was the lid that failed. Clearly there is a problem with it.

Sorry, but if I'm spending this sort of money on a kettle, I expect it to last more than just a couple of years.

Don't buy this kettle! We bought ours about 18 months ago- we had only had the kettle about a year when the lid broke. During the last month it has developed a leak, which means we are left with water all over the kitchen counter after the kettle has boiled. Considering the price of the kettle, it hasn't lasted long at all. This is the second time we have bought an expensive kettle and it has broken within 2 years. We've just bought a £30 one, hope that lasts us longer!

I loved this kettle for the first couple of years after I bought it but I'm now feeling a rather put out. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who thinks that an £80 kettle should last for more than three years, but my treasured Magimix began to give up just around the time of its 3rd birthday. The lid now will not open at all and it often makes a deafening, shrieking noise when switched on. It also occassionally forgets to switch itself off and turns my kitchen into a sauna ... which might be nice if I had a plunge pool, but I don't, so it isn't.

From the large number negative reviews of I can see that I'm not alone, so I wonder if this is just a rubbish design, possibly over-engineered (although as it only really has one moving part, it is perhaps just badly engineered) and a case of style over substance. Or, since so many seem to fail just as the warranty runs out, is it a Kettle conspiracy?

Don't buy one if you want a long-term kettle companion - that's my advice.
