So I've owned this kettle for over a year now and while I am happy with the product and it fulfills the basic requirement of a kettle to boil water there are a few niggles I have to mention. It boils quickly, isn't too noisy and has a good capacity.
Firstly, despite being a one person household that uses this kettle maximum twice a day the purple paint started to chip off round the spout not to many months after purchasing. This is a bit disappointing as the colour is obviously important to this product and it looks a bit shabby now.
Another issue would be how hot this kettle gets when boiling water. It may sound daft but this metal cased kettle gets far far hotter than any of my previous kettles and I've lightly burnt myself a few times brushing against it while it's still hot.
