Rated 1 out of 5 by Milo Leaks as does everbody else's
After a couple of years use mine is leaking around the black GT stripe near the base making it useless. Sorry but it's no better than a bargain basement kettle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Twinkle123 Teething problem
Had to take the kettle back to store that l purchased a fortnight ago as the blue illumination light had gone caput! Swapped with no hassle, early days but seems new one OK so far. Nice, quiet kettle but a tad on the cumbersome/heavy side when full.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Eric87 Nice kettle, but started leaking after 18 months
Was very pleased with this kettle when we got it. Filling is easy with a pop-up lid and clear view of how much is in there. It looked great on the worktop, and boiled water quickly.
However after 3 months the spring on the pop-up lid broke, and after 18 months, the kettle started leaking. So now we need a new kettle. I expect an item like a kettle to last far longer than this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Zill I like this kettle
If only it would have a longer life. The performance is good in the fact that it boils quickly. I also like the design and look of the kettle. You can see how much water is in there.
Each time I have had this kettle it stops working after about 11 months. As it is guaranteed for 2 years, I am sent a replacement almost the next day. The customer service is more than excellent. BUT I would rather not have the hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike60 Good long lasting kettle
We bought our first one of these kettles in 2008 and have only just had to replace it after nearly eight years of heavy family use. It is of good solid construction , easy to fill, and easy to see the quantity of water inside. the 1.7L capacity is good for a large family and the ability to boil just one cup is also useful. The cable storage for the base plate is very neat and tidy, meaning you do not have to have excess cable in the way on your work top. Easy to clean and regular de-scaling makes it quick and quiet to boil.
It is quite large and can be heavy when full so it is not for someone with a weak wrist. We have had to replace the filter in the spout once in eight years as it eventually split. The only reason for replacing the kettle was because the plastic strip in the lid finally became brittle and cracked, shedding bits in to the kettle and the spring lid started to fail. We have replaced with the same model as we were so happy with it. Eight years of use I feel is good value and would recommend this kettle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Philips Switch fell apart after 4 years
If the reliability was improved this would be an excellent kettle. Philips needs to improve its quality on their products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Maggie47 A little larger than it looked in the picture
I am pleased with the performance but the kettle is much larger than it looked in the picture and a little cumbersome to use.
