Good points

  • Quick at getting to the boil.
  • Is easy to fill.
  • The on/off switch (below the handle) is easy to use.
  • The water can be poured in a nice even stream.
  • No problem with steam coming back at you.

But

  • Noisy.
  • The indicator lights are very dim.
  • The lid takes a little effort to get off and on (so this jug isn’t as easy to fill as some others).
  • The water-level indicator is somewhat difficult to see.
  • Towards the end of pouring the jug has to be tilted to an angle that doesn’t feel comfortable.
  • The filter is difficult to remove and replace.

How we test

Noise was assessed midway through boiling-up and from 1m away. A higher score means less noise.

Price is based on a June 2017 price survey.
