Thank you I will look at it
These are a nice idea but I can't imagine they'd work in practice unless you plan your hot drink making 5 or 10 minutes in advance as the filter takes that sort of time to allow the water to pass through. If you don't let it finish doing this and boil anyway, then you'll have cold water dripping into your just boiled water. If you're not paying attention, you could have a lot of water in the upper part that'll either come out the top as you pour, or worse still, imbalance the kettle and maybe cause a user to drop the whole thing. I could be wrong in my thinking, and please correct me if I am, but it just seems the sort of idea that should've been aborted at the concept phase.

I've had this kettle for over a year. Water for 2 cups of tea takes just over a minute to pass through the filter, so not long at all. If I'm in a rush, then I just pour water from my Brita Jug, which is the same thing. My kettle has minimal amount of limescale after roughly 16 months of daily use. Before this kettle, I had to change kettles every 6 months due to the amount of limescale that used to build up, so I highly recommend it.
I've had one of these for over 2 years now well worth the cost even if full price
I bought this kettle about 2 months ago + I love it, no problems as all. Great price too
This doesn't seem a good price? It's 21.99 at amazon...
Do these actually boil faster?
cheaper in other places.

Cold - cheaper elsewhere. Great kettle's though I have one - and to the question on speed - yes it's quicker than a normal element in the water kettle.

Only if you're boiling ice.
How is this an hot deal, as others have pointed out its cheaper at Amazon, how did it ever get anywhere near this heat. Voted cold and hope others do also in order to maintain the credibilty of this site.

Cold.
Yeah, I don't get it.

My parents are after a kettle and when I saw this hot, this morning I mentioned it. Then did a google search and the price was nothing special. Then checked amazon and found it considerably cheaper. I said to my Dad I'm surprised because this site is normally good at this sort of thing.

Can't blame the OP for getting it wrong when the RRP is overinflated. But how are people blindly upvoting this still after it's known it's cheaper elsewhere? It does raise questions about how much you can trust other deals if people just click hot without giving a damn about what they are clicking on.
These are pretty good for the price, we have one at work that gets hammered.
The water filters pretty quick, but its a pain if you want to fill it completely, as you have to fill the top bit twice, meaning waiting about 2mins before you can put it on!

It boils quick(ish) though once it finally fills up.

Obviously, it holds less water overall as the filter takes up over a third of the kettle!


If you do get one, note that when you fill it, be aware that if you start to overfill the top part, it simply overflows into the actual kettle - bypassing the point of the filter!

​I have this kettle, always pour in through filter then boil straight away. Boil only ends once it's reach certain temp, which the water dripping in prevents it from achieving until it's all gone down and the water can finally come to a stable boil. No issue at all.

​Yes, considerably. Takes a bit longer if you don't wait and boil whilst water is still being filtered as it fights against the rising temp and of course boil ends when that certain temp is achieved.
I've had several of the Breville(http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/1089879.htm) one's but there seems to be a fault in them(probably a built in one to force you to buy another one) where the hinges go brittle from the heat and just falls apart.

This seems like a good price but only problem is you need to remember to change the filter as this one doesn't have a indicator like the Breville one, also have to wonder does it have the same built to fail hinge.
got this for £14 at the argos outlet in Walsall about a month ago so cold from me but a good kettle
I bought this kettle. It is much more convenient than before. But the brita filter will be very hot while boiling. Is it safe to heat the filter every day?
We had a Breville but now have this one. Far prefer this one. But yes, it is a cold deal since it's cheaper at Amazon.
Yes it is £5 cheaper (or £4 cheaper if you use Argos Fast Track) at Amazon.

However Amazon is an online retailer and Argos is a high street retailer. There are some concerns on the thread that it may take a long time to filter/boil. Well if you are not happy you can return it at both sellers easily but one distinct difference -

Take it back under the Argos 30 day money back guarantee and your money will be refunded and its back to as you were.

Return it to Amazon and they will happily take it back and refund you. But then, live with the risk of being barred from Amazon permanently for returning a kettle!

I know which company would get my money (even if it is £4 more).

Heat added OP.
Colder than a polar bears A'se.
£5 Cheaper

Or you could've just boil the kettle and put 2 spoons of citric acid in there (which is safe to use as it's used in food and not a chemical), boil and pour out, in return you get a brand new kettle. I do this every 6 weeks or so and 2 years on my kettle looks brand new inside. And it's much better than all the useless expensive or inexpensive limescale removers.

Try it and thank me later.

Bought this kettle about a year ago from sainsburys, cost less than 20 quid IIRC. The filter was removed after a few weeks as it took too long to wait for the water to pass through.

Sorry, cold from me.
This is a great kettle, especially when your water is harder than Vinnie Jones. It boils much quicker and considerably quieter than my old kettle, no scum on drinks, the manual specifically tells you that you can boil immediately without waiting for the water to filter through. Has the Brita memo to remind you when to change cartridge. Nice build quality. Buy it.

I totally agree. I have one of these and you can only pour about a mug's worth of water in at a time, then wait, then pour. Total pain in the backside.
Not only that but if you overfill you end up with water going everywhere. Plus the lid never shuts properly.
Ended up taking the filter bit out!
