Does it come with a tree to hug too? :evil:

a treehugger wouldn't bother wasting their money on this. A kettle is about the most energy efficient product in most houses. There us nothing "eco" about this kettle (other than electricity is far more efficient than gas at boiling water - this applies to all kettles, obviously).

This is a product clearly aimed at the middleclass greenwashed brigade.

It's a product aimed at those who boil a full kettle for one drink. It is a good product, I have one. It's far better built than most kettles too. It takes about 15 secs to boil enough water for one drink.

What a bizarre comment! This kettle appears to help people boil the correct amount of water, whatever small difference this makes, it is a good idea. I would buy one, but I don't need one. I thinks it odd to fire it down when it is simply aimed at trying to get people to boil the right amount for their needs. I always over-estimated and my husband under-estimates. So I waste electric using to much, and we need to boil twice for my husband, therefore I feel that perhaps this kettle is allowed it's eco label, as it is simply an effort in the right direction.

how on earth can you put the wrong amount of water in a kettle? What a bizarre concept! You fill it to the minimum level and turn it on for one cup. If you are making 2 or 4 or 6 cups just fill it to the correct level. Once you've done it once there is no estimating.

If you can't boil a kettle correctly you have much larger problems than a "eco" kettle could ever fix.

This product is "green-consumerism" at its 'best'. Whilst the rest of us have been using the correct amount of water (using a standard kettle), reducing & recycling and generally not wasting things for years it's taken until it becomes trendy / repackaged & sold to people as something special for the greenwashed to take any notice. The plastic wasted in manufacturing the kettle (surely an eco kettle would be glass, not plastic??) offsets any tiny amount of electricity saved in usage. (coupled with the electricity wasted in manufacturing it when some of the people who purchase one throw out a perfectly good kettle).

My mum bought this kettle and although the theory works, it's not the best piece of kit in the world. By requisite of holding the water in 2 chambers it can often feel lop-sided and is about twice the size (diameter) of a standard kettle. It's also fairly heavy, and certainly not recommended for older people, or children (older ones obviously) - if you only use a small amount of water for boiling and keep the other chamber full it's very akward and I'm pretty sure mum's mentioned water dripping out of the top in these conditions. Not to mention the fact that it's pretty ugly in the flesh!

I wonder if they used recycled plastic to make it?? Brings back memory of the [not so] green bags made in India....

Well said,

I wouldve had that in my head, but am too lazy to put it down and as eloquently too.:thumbsup:

In response to your first comment, actually my kettle is that shiny stainless steel stuff (my brother bought it) and you can't see any levels! It doesn't have any. So my problem is my kettle.

And with regard to your next hit, I think you missed my point, you are clearly an intelligent, thinking person, and your point is well made. And for much of it I agree, however you are missing the fact that there are a huge amount of deeply thick, ignorant people in this world. If anything helps raise awareness and thinking about energy usage and 'eco' issues, then I am sorry but I think it's good. I recycle and re-use evrything I can (to be fair my husband is very anal about these things-which is good) and I try not to buy things I don't need- but a lot of people don't.

I think I wouldn't like this kettle though, because surely the water in the 'spare' tank, would get warm and not be very nice? And what size are their cups?
What I would buy if I needed one, would be a fast boil one where you can see the water boil and a light illuminates it, fab.

You are joking right? Tiny? A kettle is the most energy hungry device in the home, apart from maybe the fridge freezer of tumble dryer. One boil of just a cuppa worth of water will use roughly 12w compared with 100w for a full kettle. That's the same as 4 hours use of that ES light bulb in the living room. Boil enough for one cuppa as opposed to a full kettle just three times a day, and you have paid for your living room lighting for the day in savings.
It's merely a good deal at the end of the day. £25 for the eco-kettle, or £25 for a bog standard kettle. Your choice.
But carry on using that luvly Russel Hobbs kettle with the leaky handle and limescale in the watch glass if you want. I think anyone who wants/needs a new kettle could do a lot worse than this one. Just my opinion.

If the kettle is larger than a standard kettle then it took more resources and energy to make it. Filling up one chamber with water so you can release the correct amount into the boiling chamber is, as far as I can see, less easy than simply buying a standard kettle with a water indicator and filling it directly from the tap with the correct amount of water in the first place!
I haven't rated the deal cold because I rate the deal, not the product, but I think you'd be way better off with a standard kettle if you want to be eco-friendly.
#15
not that this whole kettle issue bothers me, but if people are having problems filling their kettles correctly, isn't the simpest solution to fill it with cupfuls of water rather than directly from the tap? you'll be using the cup/mug anyway for your hot drink so there's no bother about it getting wet!
