I was toying with picking one up but reviews don't seem too favourable when they've been availaible before. Anyone got one and are happy with it?
great if you like looking at limescale
Bought one a few years ago, still going strong & no limescale ( soft water here) good at the price.
As above poster noted limescale is very noticeable. I bought x2 of the Russel Hobbs suggested descaler for £3.50 via a random website. Needs cleaning about every 2 months. It’s not a major issue - at least it actually gets cleaned because I can’t bear I see the limescale...
Best Kettle I've bought. Ours changes colour as the water gets hotter. No problems with limescale after 6 months use. Have a child with special needs and this Kettle is just brilliant for them to use as you can see the water level and the temp of the water just by looking at it. I have got through so many kettles it has become a standing joke - many have been supposedly top of the range . This really is worth a punt for £20.
I didn't have an issue with limescale, it depends on where you live.

However mine broke after two years, the lid disintegrated and fell inside. It was easier to buy a different kettle, so can't comment on the warranty.

You let a child with special needs use the kettle, its no wonder you get through so many of em then..

Why shouldn't a child with special needs use a kettle? Everyone needs to learn life skills so that everyone can be as independent and self reliant as possible.

I think the quote "I have got through so many kettles it has become a standing joke" may just give a clue to your question, also children and boiling water don't mix!

My eleven year, who doesn't have special needs, has just learned to make a really good cup of tea. I would trust him with a kettle of boiling water, absolutely no concerns.
Heat Added , been on the lookout for one of these . Hope the cats are gonna be ok with it
Got one last year and still going strong much better than the Russel Hobbs one I got and got it replace under warranty.

This one is value for money 🏽
Will this eventually leak like every other kettle?
No problems with heat shock to the glass? Like boil water , pour out, add cold water? If you need to let it cool then it is a no from me. My family - with no special needs - will just bust it doing just this.

Bit redundant since I ordered a new kettle today, but just interested.

We've had two, possibly three, glass kettles now, and never had an issue with the glass. It will be tempered glass, thermal shock resistant, and really strong. The last one failed, because the lid broke, which seems to be the most common failure mode for glass kettles. In fact, looking at the flimsy opening mechanism of the old kettle, and the new Russel Hobbs - that I hate - they appear to be designed to fail at some point just outside of warranty, thus rendering the kettle landfill. I hate the way modern consumer appliances are made - so wasteful.

Thanks. I bought some borosilicate glassware and that had an icon on the stickering to avoid thermal shock so got me wondering. Mind boiling water is cooler than a conventional oven so maybe that is where the danger is (bigger temp diff from 200 degrees to 12 degrees).
Crap. Broke on the first day and spring for the lid fell out. Quality for the price is questionable.
