Advantages: Easy to clean, Boils quickly, Looks great
Disadvantages: You can see limescale buildup (easily removed)
I bought this kettle on moving into my new house. On writing this review I have had it for about 8 months with no problems.
The only issue that I have had with this kettle is that after a few months limescale builds up inside the glass jug. As it is clear the limescale is easily visible and spoils the look of the kettle. Because the inside of the kettle has a flat stainless steel base (as opposed to an exposed heating element on other kettles) it is extremely easy to clean with limescale remover. Looks perfect again now and I avoided replacing the kettle like I have with others. In 8 months I have no other criticism of the kettle.
The kettle is great. It glows blue when it is on and has a clear glass 'jug'. It has the usual on/off setting that is common amongst kettles and boils water more rapidly than other kettles I have owned.
The kettle looks great. It is unique and I love the blue glow when it is boiling. The stainless steel base and stylish black handle complete the look and in my opinion it is one of the best looking kettles out there.
I bought this in a sale in comet and got a good deal as I was buying a lot of other house furnishing appliance at the same time. It is currently around £50 at sainsburys, so it's certainly not a cheap kettle. But on the above points I would definitely recommend spending that extra money.
Summary: Brilliant kettle in looks and functionality
