I dont actually own this kettle anymore as it was a joint gift with my ex partner and he got the kettle when we split!! However I still felt like writing a review because it was a fantastic kettle! I wanted a kettle that had a water filter built in and this one takes Brita water filters or own make ones. I hate all the limescale you normally get at the bottom of kettles over the months so having a filter was great .The only slight downside to this was that it took ages for the water to filter into the kettle and you had to fill the kettle into the water filter part probably twice if you wanted the kettle completely full if you were making a lot of drinks. ...

I love my kettle. I saw this, but the white plastic version in my cousins kitchen and rather liked the perpetual colour changing light. It's a girlie decor kettle really. Having admired it I wished it were available in something to match my own kitchen and my cousin said it was, only more expensive. Satisfied with that I went and bought mine at Argos and was gleeful to find it on offer and it looked great in my kitchen, for 3 days before the bulb went. The manual and guarantee said the bulb was meant to be lifelong of the kettle and should not blow. So it went back to Argos. The replacement last 4 months before that bulb went too. The next replacement ... Read the complete review

I came home to find my husband had bought us a new kettle, which surprised me because we didn't really need a new kettle. However, I love this kettle. It gives off a soothing blue glow which turns to red when you switch it on, but its not just pretty to look at, its practical too. Many stainless steel kettles have windows so that you can see how much water is in them, but after a while they begin to leak, as the temperature changes of the different materials eventually damages the seals. The body of this kettle is completely plastic however, and wrapped in a stainless steel outer cover, so there are no joined materials where it can start to leak. Not only that but ..

I had this kettle in the last flat that i was renting and never has a cup of tea tasted so good. I especially noticed the difference in taste with the herbal teas that i like to drink. The kettle takes a little while to filter the water which is to be expected having used water filters previously, but getting into the habbit of refilling the kettle once i had used the water saved me time when i was gasping for a cuppa!! The only downside is the price of the kettle, it is pricy when you can get a decent kettle that doesnt filter for less than half the price, but in my opinion the cost of the kettle is justified as the taste and quality of the ...

I bought this kettle because my old kettle was looking past its sell by date. After trying all the limescale cleaners on the market to clean my old one, I gave up and treat myself, boring treat but I guess its a woman thing. I thought it was a little expensive for a kettle but after using it for about 6 months now it was well worth the money. The light changes from blue (standby) to red (boiling). Its very quick to boil although a little slower if you're filtering at the same time. Its easy to clean when you replace the Maxtra cartridges. Although these can be a little expensive I bought the multi pack (6 in box) when they were on ... Read the complete review
