If you don't mind buying a new one every year, then this a great choice. But if, like me, you expect an 80 quid kettle to last a bit longer, you might be better off looking elsewhere..
One of these was returned within three months when the lid stopped opening properly. The other has been in limited use for twelve months and is OK.
My replaced item has just been consigned to the bin one month outside the original three year (extended) warranty and, therefore, just over two years old itself. The reason for this is because the lid opening mechanism has failed. It consists of small plastic clips which have worn out and broken off. Additionally the kettle has recently stopped turning itself off as soon as the water reaches boiling point.
Conclusion:- there are two unacceptable and common faults in the design of this item which are well demonstrated in three of the four kettles I have experience of. One, the thermostat is weak and prone to failure and, two, the design of the lid hinge is even weaker and prone to failure. The latter fault renders the kettle dangerous because the only way to open the kettle without putting fingers in the steam line is by the quick release button which stops automatically opening the lid prior to total failure.
For the cost charged I expected much more in the way of operational quality and reliability but, maybe, the terms of the manufacturers guarantee should have put me on my guard. I would not buy another Magimix product.
Magimix have obviously had so many irate customers and returns that when we had our 3rd replacement, they told us we can never have another replacement. If you look around the review sites, its amazing that this kettle has about THE poorest rating from consumers like us yet Magimix other products are viewed highly in most circles. How can a company get its product design and build so wrong..? We have now replaced it with a Dualit. Lets hope this proves to be better quality.
Well right on the mark of 3 years the filter which is attached to the inside of spout area pops off and won't pop back in .....how STUPID is that ? This CONTROLS the " switching off " of the thermostat . So now you need to be close by to switch the kettle off. I say...I purchased a $30 kettle that lasted me for over 5 years before the thermos control broke and replaced it with a supposedly MAGIMIX marvel .
Don't wast your money on this attractive appliance ...what a RIP OFF . I could have purchased 2, 3 , 4 or even 5 NEW kettles for the price of this one .....the Germans are tricksters ...no trust in German products anymore
