Good points

  • Fast to boil one litre of water.
  • Acceptable noise level.
  • Very easy to use controls.
  • Push-button lid-opening for very easy filling.
  • The water can be poured in an even stream.
  • No problem with steam.
  • Indicator light is fairly bright.
  • Six pre-set temperatures, which are reasonably accurate.
  • Has audible “water boiling” reminder.

But

  • Heavy and not well balanced.
  • The kettle has to be tilted to an angle that’s awkward to hold.
  • Filter is fiddly to remove and replace.
