    Extra cost doesn't equal extra quality

    BB&B Customer . 2 months ago

    I have owned this kettle for 2 years and eventually the little piece that connects the base to the kettle got damaged and the kettle wouldn't work. I took it apart and I had to replace the entire part inside the kettle body that operates the thermostat and the switch and all the working parts. Upon searching for the part online I realized this is just a standard part and the exact same part is in dozens of different brands of kettles that will cost you a fraction of this kettle. The moral of my story here is, the hefty price of this kettle is based on the brand and the look not the quailty. The actual working components of it are not superior to other kettles. I give it two stars because the style of the kettle is nice but I would recommend saving your money if you think that spending more is going to get you a quality product.

    Love it!

    Ordered in red. Received cream colour, which is actually the one I wanted but was marked as unavailable. As for the kettle itself, it's beautiful. Fast, quiet operation. Comes to a boil in half of the time of my old Black & Decker. Love the touch-to-open lid and soft close features. Even the lever is quiet when it releases. Like the internal filter built in to spout. Not sure if the cord is silicone or rubber, but it's softer and more flexible than the plastic-covered cords on cheaper brands. Bonus - it comes with a set of replacement silicone feet. I'm thrilled with it.
