Good points

  • Quick at getting to the boil.
  • Is very easy to fill (has a push-button lid).
  • Has a comfortable handle.
  • The on/off switch (below the handle) is easy to use.
  • The indicator light is easy to see.
  • The water can be poured in a nice even stream.
  • The kettle doesn’t have to be tilted much towards the end of pouring (so the angle doesn’t feel uncomfortable).
  • No problem with steam coming back at you.

But

  • Noisy.
  • The filter can be fiddly to remove and replace.
