I bought this kettle 3 months ago now along with the 2 slice toaster. (See my review about the toaster) I had heard mixed reviews about this kettle and was in 2 minds whether to buy it or not. The reviews were saying it left a metalic taste in your mouth, but because it looks amazing I bought it. Ok so the first few times, I must admit there was a metalicy taste in my cuppa. All I had to do was boil the kettle a few times with a slice of lemon in and hey ho. Perfect. However another problem I noticed when I had family staying (who drink a lot of tea) - I found it difficult to take the lid off because it is metal and the lid becomes too hot. You have to pull it quite hard also. Positive things though is that is it is really lightweight and the design of the kettle is really clever. It boils really quickly, some of the reviews said when it boils it is really noisy, however I didnt find this at all. Overall not a bad kettle at all and wicked design.
