Advantages: No scalding and not too much cord.
Disadvantages: Could have a little more capacity.
I had bought a cheap kettle shortly before buying this one and discovered, again, that you get what you pay for! At a little over £30 from Amazon this was still a really good priced kettle.
This is a lovely looking kettle which, due to its shape, is easy and very safe to use. I had found with other kettles that I got scalded by the steam when pouring boiling water but this one is shaped in such a way that this no longer happens. It leans slightly forward which means the steam isn't directed straight onto my hand on the handle.
It has a 3kw concealed element with rapid boil which makes it a fairly quiet kettle which you don't have to wait too long for, especially when compared to my previous kettle. The capacity, at 1.5 litres, is a little less than others I have owned but it was plenty for my general use. Its clear viewing glass shows how much water there is and it illuminates when in use.
As far as I know there is not a choice of colour but the brushed steel is very easy to keep clean with a quick wipe.
It lifts easily off the base and turns freely in 360 degrees when on the base.
The cord is shorter than some others which means I don't have lots of it to try and safely keep out of the way.
My kettle gets a lot of use and having used it for a few weeks already am confident it will last and not break down like so many others before it.
I would highly recommend this kettle and will never go back to buying cheap ones in the future.
Summary: Excellent kettle which I would recommend.
