Advantages: different design, good quality kettle, efficient
Disadvantages: The cost
For some reason, this kettle has taken a lot of grief because of its design, many finding it too odd or lacking originality... However, the design and look of the kettle was one of the first things that drew me to the product, because I simply found the very clean and simple look of it very appealing! It`s so simple and modern that it becomes cool without trying... Also, I wanted a kettle of good quality, and I trusted the brand of Kenwood to deliver! And it did!
The cost of this product will vary a bit from store to store, but the price rests between 35.99-40.99, which is expensive indeed, but you get a good and trustworthy kettle a long with spending the money! The biggest advantage for me when it comes to this kettle, is the very solid and good grip you have around the handle, meaning that it`s very safe and solid to lift and poor from, there`s no chance you``ll drop it and have boiling water splashing all over you... The capacity of the kettle is between 1.5 to 1.6 liters, which I find more than sufficient, and the speed of which the water comes to a boil is very fast, depending upon how much water you add to the kettle. I wouldn`t add too much water to the kettle though, because if you do, there`s a big chance some of the water will poor out to the sides when boiling... As mentioned, I found the very simple and clean design appealing and different, and all though I am sure you can find good kettles costing less than this one, I still recommend it as a good and reliable kettle! Oh, and another thing, I find it running very silently, which is a plus for many! All in all, I`m thinking this kettle to be a very good one!
Summary: A funny looking, good quality kettle!
