Rated 5 out of 5 by NikkiK2 This is my second of these Philips Kettles and have worked very well.
This is the scond of my two Philips kettles. The fist one gave out after many years of service. This make of Philips kettle is easy to use and clean. Both inside and out.
Filling with water only need's you to flip the lid and close again.
The unit fit's on a round base on the first go with ease.
Due to high over width, with regard the design and build. The Kettle also takes up very little room on the Kitchen counter top.
Over all a really good Kettle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HamsphireBloke Failure mode found at lug pin of lid hinge
After some years of light usage by a single person, mainly at weekends, this kettle has failed.
Earlier in the week, the lid felt rather tight and strange. Inspection has found that one lug / pin of the lid hinge has fractured.
My kettle is therefore reluctantly written off. All users should be aware of this potential failure mode. Electrically at 3KW it was a quick boiler and there were no issues.
An alternative kettle has been procured, inspection of several other kettles has found in general that the lid hinge arrangements are wider and apparently more robust.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bren59 It's an electric kettle.
This is a good looking kettle and feels very good quality. It is however incredibly noisy and blocks out the sound of the TV in the kitchen for a couple of minutes while it gets to boiling point. The windows indicating water level are permanently misted up - so water level is not clear. A coloured "float" would surely be better. A spring loaded quick release lid would be a nice feature for refilling.

A nice design and looks good in a modern kitchen. Easy to use and very fast to boil.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AceCarpman Average Kettle but heavy
Although this kettle matched the kitchen tiles perfectly it is heavy in use and would not turn off. It had to be returned to Argos and an alternative Phillips kettle chosen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MikeG Almost perfect Kettle
Peobably the fastest boiling kettle we have owned. Let down by a lid which refuses to lift when the button is pressed when the kettle is hot. If the lid worked properly it would have been a clean sweep of 5 stars.
