* Must be black
* Must have clear, easy-to-see gauge on the side
* Must not take 100 years to boil
* Must not be too heavy (I have tendonitus).
I am pleased to report the kettle succeeded these tests. I have never owned a brita filter kettle before, but found the water strained through quite quickly.
The light on the side does not get as bright as the image shows - it mostly lights near the bottom. It was bright enough to see it boiling. I filled the kettle to max capacity - 6 cups - and found it did not spit. I put the flat of my palm on the lid - I did not get burned. The insulation on this kettle is surprisingly good, as my water was still quite hot 10 minutes after boiling.
It is a little heavier than I had anticipated, but to be fair, some of that weight is the brita filter. It is very easy to fit, no hassle at all, apart from preparing the filter to go in by dousing it in water.
The kettle looks and feels sturdy, and the plastic does not look horribly shiny/cheap under my kitchen spotlights.
I will update this review as I carry on using it, but for this price, I am extremely pleased - it looks very stylish in my kitchen and boils up a good cup of tea. I really cannot fault it, and would recommend it to others.
Kettle still working well! Only other comment is the hard water in my area builds into a slight limescale "crust" on the outside rim of the lid, which needs a bit of cleaning, which I guess is from water not quite filtered by the Brita cartridge rising as steam.
-Solid build quality, nothing loose or looking like it will fall apart before it's time.
-The design to accommodate the extra filter means cleaning and maintaining it will be very easy.
-Quick boiling time.
-The filter itself is a simple system that can be maintained fairly cheaply (the filters last about a month and cost about £4 each to replace). You can also totally remove the filtering system if you wish and just use it as a normal kettle.
The main issue we have had with this kettle is it took a long time to get rid of the overpowering taste of plastic it gives your tea/coffee. The guidelines that come with it recommend boiling and emptying it a few times before use. This is massively insufficient. In the end we used a mixture of water and bicarbonate of soda TWICE (and brought to the boil) and vinegar and water TWICE (also brought to the boil) before it started to produce an end result that tasted more like tea than sucking on a cheap christmas cracker toy.
The only other quibble is if you are intending on filtering all the water you boil you will need to fill the filter compartment twice if you are intending on making tea/coffee for more than two people. This is only a minor quibble, but for larger families (or when you have guests) this becomes a pain when you have to sit by the kettle for 5 minutes and just wanted to quickly flick the kettle on. You CAN however totally remove the filtering compartment and just use the kettle as normal.
The filter system is effective and it is pleasant to have really clear water especially as I live in a hard water area. The filter, which is easy to install, does make the kettle heavier than normal but this is not a real problem for me.
The only niggle is that the water takes a while trickling through the filter. The kettle can be switched on while this happens but it is difficult to judge from the levels marked on the side of the kettle, exactly how much water you have poured in. When it settles you may discover that there is far more than you intended, which rather defeats the idea of water economy! The only way to avoid this would be to wait till the water level has settled before switching on - which I don't think most people would be happy to do. I can usually guess the amount now, but maybe the manufacturer can improve this aspect for future models.

Nice looking kettle and handy for filtering the water before boiling. It does take time for the water to filter through and it does make a nice cup of tea, with now scum. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Praba
