Good points

  • Very fast to boil one litre of water.
  • OK to use controls.
  • The water can be poured in a nice even stream.
  • No problem with steam.
  • Push-button lid-opening for easy filling.
  • Very well-balanced.

But

  • Noisy.
  • Indicator light is very dim.
  • Kettle is glass so will need regular cleaning (any brown limescale residue can be seen at the bottom of the jug).
