This is not a bad kettle, even with its looks. It has a stainless steel look to it with a wide clear viewing window up the rear so you can see the amount of water in there. There are measurement lines up the window showing you how full the kettle is.
The switch is on the good sized handle, making it easy to lift up and use.
There is a filter in the spout with the spout being welded to the body of the kettle so that it won't fall off.
It can hold up to 1.7 litres of water, bringing a full kettle of cold water to the boil in under three minutes using the 3KW hidden element that hidden under the body cover.
It is classed as cordless, which basically means that the kettle itself sits on it own charging plate that plugs into the wall. The kettle is cordless but the charging plate isn't
It is about average size when it comes to kettle, standing at about 24cm high and about 20cm in diameter.
You can fill it up via the spout or you can lift the lid and pour the water into that, either way is good.
It has the automatic cut off when water is boiled system, plus a safety feature that cuts the power off if there's not enough water in there. These together save the kettle from boiling dry and burning out.
The base sits flat on the worktop, with the wire being able to be wrapped around the underside and slotted through the little wire gap so that the base sits flat. This saves the kettle wobbling everywhere when the water's boiling.
This kettle cost about £40, which sounds a lot for a kettle but it was well worth the money
