I thought from the box I had a stainless steel kettle, but no, it is an attractive shade of green which compliments my kitchen, it has a black lid and handle and a stainless steel spout. Maybe the green circle stuck on the box should have given me a clue as to the colour!
The base unit has a generous length of wire to the plug so it easily reaches the socket.
There is a filter to prevent the build up of chalk from the hard water in my area getting into any drinks. There is also a measuring guide on the side from 0.5 litres minimum to a maximum of 1.7 litres.
I boiled three lots of water before I used any for a drink. The water certainly boiled very quickly and the kettle switched off automatically. On the box it said ‘Fast and easy boiling ~ powerful, easy-clean flat heating element’. I agree with the fast and easy boiling, cleaning the element hasn’t been an issue yet.
This kettle also has ‘boil dry protection’ to prevent it boiling dry with either too little or no water.
I am really pleased with my new kettle, it is so much more attractive looking and faster boiling than my old one!
A fantastic kitchen appliance!
