Good points

  • Fast to boil one litre of water.
  • Very easy to use controls.
  • The water can be poured in a nice even stream.
  • No problem with steam.

But

  • Noisy.
  • Towards the end of pouring the kettle has to be tilted to an angle that’s awkward to hold.
  • Removable lid handle is small and the lid gets hot.
  • The filter is very hard to remove and replace.
