Good points

  • Quick at getting to the boil.
  • Is very easy to fill (has a push-button lid).
  • The push-button controls (on top of the handle) are easy to use.
  • The blue indicator lights (inside the kettle) are very easy to see.
  • The water can be poured in a nice even stream.
  • No problem with steam coming back at you.
  • Has 6 preset temperatures.
  • Has a 30-minute ‘keep warm’ function for the selected temperature.
  • Has an audible ‘water boiling’ reminder.

But

  • Noisy.
  • Towards the end of pouring the kettle has to be tilted to an angle that doesn’t feel comfortable.
  • The filter is a little fiddly to remove and replace.
