Good points

  • Very fast to boil one litre of water.
  • Very easy to use controls.
  • The water can be poured in an even stream.
  • No problem with steam.
  • Indicator light is fairly bright.
  • The handle is comfortable.

But

  • Noisy.
  • Towards the end of pouring the kettle has to be tilted to an angle that’s awkward to hold.
  • Lid requires effort to remove and replace.

Recall

In August 2016, certain Dualit D4 jug kettles were recalled as the plastic viewing windows could shatter. See the recall notice for more information on how to check if your product is affected.
