When searching for reviews on this kettle there were next to none so am pleased to provide a review on this......absolutely love it!!!! Bought this a few days ago and fell Inlove with it the minute it touched my counter.....looks classy and well built. Does the job and is a lot smaller than I had expected which is a good thing as doesn't require too much space. Colour is deep and glossy adds a personality to my kitchen. Boils quicker than my last kettle and is not loud. The lid is a pull off lid but easy to do - the quality really shows here. I just hope I don't get as much lime scale as I did with my previous kettle. I'm about to order the matching 2 slice toaster as it seems to be an Online exclusive everywhere. Will update further once I have made more usage of this kettle but so far so good and is defo worth the price - even though it's a bit on the pricey side.
This is a really good kettle. Having read reviews of other products, there were many complaints about how noisy other rapid-boil kettles are, while others produced a 'plastic'-tasting tea. This does neither. Super efficient and also nice to look at.
Had this kettle just under 2 years and now it either doesn't work at all, or there is a strong smell of burning. Metal contacts in base have melted together. Breville say it was manufactured in June 2012 so is out of warranty (problem began May 2014) so all they will do is offer another at reduced price of just over £20. Not sure if it is worth bothering.
After using it for short while the level guage is starting to leak when cold and left with water in overnight. Whilst warm seems okay. Then every kettle we have had has started to leak after a while in use but not this early, In use for about 3 months and is now leaking like sieve.
Really loved this kettle, but have just sent back a second replacement due to leaking again! It was perfect to start with and then began leaking from the water gauge. They also seen to have a problem with leakage from the base. Very disappointed.....shame!
Well the kettle itself is brilliant. Quiet and quick when boiling lovely colour. But I've noticed after nearly 2 weeks of use the lid where its still silver in colour on the lip is showing signs of rusting. A quick rub with a scourer and its gone but sadly does reappear again. Its a shame that this has happened because otherwise it would most definitely be a 5*.
