Good points

  • Very 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.
  • Push-button lid-opening for very easy filling.

But

  • Noisy.
  • Water level is difficult to see behind handle.
  • Towards the end of pouring the kettle has to be tilted to an angle that’s awkward to hold.
