Perfect. Stainless steel with no plastic liner to leach chemicals into the water. No water gauge window to crack and fail, no soft close or hinged lid to break. No lights to fail.
It just boils water efficiently, and hopefully will outlast all the fancy kettles I've wasted money on. And, with the two year EEC compulsory guarantee on all electrical goods, I should get at least 2 years out of it at £10 per year.
The water level indicator inside the kettle is plastic which is a pity, but it is a minor amount of plastic compared to many kettles.
The pinch lid is ok. Knobs can come off so the simple pinch lid is another reason why this one might last.
It is single walled so hot to touch, but for goodness sake, so were all kettles before they started making plastic and double walled ones.
The water tastes fine with no off flavours.
It pours perfectly.
UPDATE
Very sad to report that after nearly a year of use, rust and staining is showing round the spout. A great pity because apart from this the kettle has been perfect.
UPDATE
Having been promised a refund on the kettle because of the rust I searched really hard for another simple kettle that didn't have unnecessary bits to fail. I even looked at the "repairable" £120 Dualit classic, and came back to this kettle as offering such plain down to earth value for money. Got a new one, delighted again.

I bought it back in 2014 to replace more expensive kettle that failed (leaked). As most of the people who bough this one, we were looking for something simple with no unnecessary whistles and gimmicks - just a plain, straight forward kettle. Sadly, it lasted only 16 months , and suddenly just stopped working. We replaced fuse, but to no avail. In the end were told by a friend who is an electrician that most probably 'the heat element has failed' . a pity... and quite unacceptable that £20 kettle wouldn't last even 1,5 year! I bought it fed up of kettles failing within a year or so and how ironic this one did just the same :(

It was OK for a year as we only used it occasionally in a holiday home but now it is going rusty. Is it safe to use it?

Bought this 090514 with a 2 year guarentee - it lasted just under 3 years of normal use before it failed.

The lid is one of my favourite bits. It pops on and off without any hinge. So I'm hoping that's one less thing to go wrong.
