Bought after re doing kitchen and changing all appliances etc. A very good looking kettle at least in my opinion and lets face it with the aesthetics of something it is very individual.
Easy to set up and a very basic kettle. You do need to fill via the hole as opposed to the spout as it has a filter in the spout and the lid can be slightly difficult ie if you had bad arthiritis and couldn't grip well with your hands I wouldn't recommend it as it can be a bit stiff and hard to remove.
It doesn't have a water level indicator but as you have to fill it via the hole you would be able to see the level anyway.
A relativley quick boil if not a little noisy, nice build quality, very sturdy.
I feel that is very good value for money especially when you consider the price of similar products on the market.
There are a couple of improvments that could be made but nothing that I can't live with again a personal thing. I have heard that it depends how well it works as to what kind of water you have- I live in a soft water area.
I would buy it again.
