Rated 2 out of 5 by Grumpy1 Nice kettle but has problems.
I have now had two of these kettles, I originally purchased one as there are very few kettles that are suitable for left handed use i.e. water level indicator visible when held in the left hand.
After two years use the plastic moulding failed along the front vertical joint line and started leaking. I bought a replacement as I really did like the design and its' ease of use, unfortunately two years later this replacement has also started leaking but this time between another plastic to plastic joint. I wonder if they are made to a price using cheaper materials than should be used as they are manufactured in the Far East????

Boils small amounts. Boils quickly. Energy efficient. Easy to fill and pour. Second time with this model after years of use with previous purchase.

We bought this kettle as a direct replacement for an identical one we had for ten years! Never anything wrong, always ready and willing to boil anything from a single cuppa to 1.7 litres speedily.

Over the years I have had many electric kettles, most were ok and did the job of boiling water. However this Philips kettle is superb. You fill it to the exact amount of water that you need using the transparent scale and thus only boil that amount. The design is good and the filter on the spout is easily removed to clean away any hardness that may have formed. It is also quick to heat the water and being cordless there is no danger that a toddler could pull it off the work surface. A great piece of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stutheman A really rapid good quality kettle.
The best thing about the kettle is the easy to resd 1 to 3 cup level indicator, I can't get over how much we used to overfill our old kettle when we only needed enough for a couple of cups of tea.
It boils rapidly and is also quite quiet.
The only thing that seems a little suspect is the catch on the lid, hopefully it will last OK.
